  3. Some video from the ground... and the air...
  4. 24 Hour Fitness was recently completed. Buildout is taking place nearby for a Blue Lion Salon Studios which should be complete by the fall. IHOP will be opening a location at the intersection of Reading & Spacek Roads, near the Capital One Bank. No timeline for completion NewQuest is updating their leasing information more frequently as of late as well. These additions are as of 3/30 For the Phase I side: Old Navy, European Wax Center and Red Robin are listed as "proposed" tenants. The latter two would be close to FM 762 and Commercial Drive. Old Navy is proposed for the space between Palais Royal and Kohl's. For the Phase II side: Valvoline is proposed for a pad side between Panera Bread & Olive Garden. Five Below is listed as a proposed tenant for the space previously occupied by Anna's Linens, next to JC Penney. Pet Supermarket, MedExpress & Schlotzsky's have also been proposed as tenants for the section of the development near the intersection of FM 762 and Minonite Road.
  5. Sounds like they're ready to finish moving in. They will begin broadcasting from the new studios and set on Thursday. Photos from Mike McGuff Video also from Mike McGuff
  6. Construction expected to be complete by September.
  7. Found the filing for this one's height in the 1982 FAA archives. Off topic: That FAA database is fantastic for tracking down heights for a number of older unbuilt proposals that I had previously created for Emporis with the help of the Post's archives over the past decade, but it also raises more questions on some things. For example: Based on the coordinates tied to this proposal from the same year, there once was a 910 foot, 64 story tower planned for East Downtown at McKinney at Ennis, near a segment of the current MetroRail Purple Line that runs parallel to a section of the Columbia Tap Trail. Can't recall digging up anything on that via the Post previously... anyone?
  8. Between late 2015 & early 2016, the county courthouse was demolished. In the interim Midland's City Council has had to defer proof of financing and construction drawings for the project four times, the latest in January. As of then, terms stated that construction was to begin by February 28th of this year and be complete by March 2019. The adjacent building on the block is being demolished to make way for the new convention center, which is also slated for completion in 2019.
  9. I'm not a big fan. I think they overload a lot of the sub-forums with rehashes of whatever's going on in the community, and even then as stated before, they don't even get to the right areas (ex: articles that may be Rosenberg-Richmond or Sugar Land related occasionally ending up in the Katy threads). Nobody really cares about "11 things to do" in wherever this weekend or some revised press release for some business you're never going to go to. HAIFers, the human ones anyway, do much better at getting an interesting thread going.
  10. I know this is old, but I'm not sure how this would be buildings 5, 6 & 7. The building in the foreground has been there since maybe 2006 or 07, or so and is called Three Sugar Creek Center. One Sugar Creek is on the Southwest Freeway, just to the right of the one in the foreground, just off the screen. Two Sugar Creek is to the left of the proposed structure on the top left.
  11. Bingo. While the name predated the memorial by several years (I think that part only opened in the past decade), the goal was always to have a memorial to honor those who served. Technically, Memorial Park is a segment in the larger Brazos River Park plan that's being developed. Even the sign says "Sugar Land Memorial Park - At The Brazos River Park". Over the past few years, they have been developing the trail network from the existing segment and primarily to the north and west. Just in the past year or so, I know of a new section that opened near the northbound feeder of the Southwest Freeway that allows for additional parking and access. This document on the city's website shows how all of the sections will eventually be integrated:
  12. Buyouts for homeowners on the south side of the turning basin, in the planned path of the bridge, are back on after a brief delay.
  14. Another brand of Starwood hotel, Element, is also slated for the address listed for the Aloft - the date for that one is 2019 though.
  15. At least one of the hotels may be an Aloft. They list Stafford as a future location, slated for a 2018 opening, and the address matches the area around the TI Campus.
