It is located 30 km (18.6 mi) southeast of downtown Houston at Interstate 45 South and Bay Area Blvd. It has five major anchors and more than 170 stores and restaurants. It has 1,240,000 square feet (115,200 m²) of retail space.
The mall was conceived in 1973 with construction completed in 1978. The first anchor tenants were Montgomery Ward, Sears and Joskes. Law/Kingdon was the original architect.
In 1985 an expansion section opened with Macy's and Mervyn's as the two new anchors. Macy's remained there until it was sold to Dillard's in 1997. Foley's built its store in 2005 and the mall had a Macy's store again after the Federated-May merger in 2006.
In February 1989 Baybrook Mall was 96% occupied, making it the mall with the second highest percentage of occupied space in the Houston area.
Baybrook Mall plans to expand their mall in 2015 to include an outdoor and lifestyle center. This plan is to help Baybrook compete with both the Pearland Town Center and the Tanger Outlet Mall in Texas City, Texas, which have direct competition with Baybrook. It would make it the second largest mall in the Houston area, after The Galleria.
