Like their Foley's anchor stores, Houston's sibling shopping centers were nearly identical in appearance and layout. ALMEDA MALL spanned 797,000 leasable square feet; NORTHWEST MALL encompassed 794,000.
By 1976, a few things have changed, NORTHWEST-wise. Foley's has been enlarged (in light gray). It is possible (but not confirmed) that the Foley's Tire Center and "Penneys Auto Center" have been shuttered by this time.
