Lowe's land goes to auction

Property owned by Lowe’s Home Improvement recently went up for auction. Lowe’s long ago abandoned plans to build a store on the land between 55th and 57th streets just north of Broadway in Galveston.

Lowe-down: Who bid last week on the prime parcel between 55th and 57th streets in Galveston that was once the planned site for a Lowe’s Home Improvement store? That’s the multi-million dollar question.

Lowe’s, which years ago abandoned plans to build an island store, hired Hilco Real Estate to help it sell the property. The parcel went up for auction with a sealed bid deadline of May 16.
