I’ve been quite involved in the Ground-up Commercial Retail Development for the past 17-years of which the last four-(4) have been on my own. I LOVE the Ground-up Commercial Retail Development business
I’m the third of four generations of King’s in the City of Houston in the real estate development business and very proud of it. My grandfather, C. E. King, started it all off in the residential development business back in the 30’s and then his three-(3) sons followed suite. My brother, C. Ewing King II, was the first to get into the Commercial arena followed by myself and then his son Cortez E. King III.
