  1. As others have said, it’s not very big, but it has always seemed big enough for these activities due to the very limited # of boats on the lake at any given time. It’s also one of the best viewing locations in all of Houston for fireworks on 7/4 & 12/31. I’ve said it elsewhere as my family has a dock on TL, it will never compared to Lake Conroe Or Travis, but my mother works in the energy corridor and really can’t accommodate the commute from Lake Conroe. Now do we haul our boat to bigger lakes on occasions? Of course we do take it, but TL affords us the ability to actually utilize and enjoy our boat outside of those few occasions a year; the way I see it, it’s a million times more appealing than just having it in storage for most the year. There’s not really anywhere within the grand parkway loop where you can enjoy a family boat in this way and that’s I think the niche of it. TL also offers more custom high end hone options than Bridgeland, so I think a lot of people are choosing TL cause they’ve already decided on their location being Cypress south of 290, and TL is really the only neighborhood offering custom new builds over 7-8k sq ft or acre lots in this part of Cypress.
  2. Well Dunham Pointe is already slated for development just west of Fry Rd on that open patch of land in between Cypress Creek and 290. The residential will between Mueschke & Mason with accompanying commercial outside the perimeter. I wonder how Archie Dunham feels about this new rail line going right through his land that he planned on putting nice upper middle class homes on.
  3. Okay well I suppose that could suffice, but if I'm not mistake another poster just stated the renderings show the viaduct returns to ground level shortly after Fry Rd.
  4. What about all of the north/south thoroughfaes across 290 in Cypress west of Fry rd like Mueschke, Mason, Bauer, etc that have yet to be built? If the train goes at grade at that point, then it'll be a lot more cost prohibitive to get those done. What about that new neighborhood that was supposed to be going in south of 290 across from Fairfield between Mueschke@290 & Mason&290?
  5. Sounds like the comfortplex was bad for Houston and good for track home developers in and west of Cypress.
  6. I personally don't see it as this stretch of 99 & 290 do not rival that stretch of I-45 in terms of being a population or employment center. Perhaps it could one day way way in the future, but I think even at best it would still be 30-40 years down the line on a redevelopment of existing commercial land in Bridgeland rather than anew build. Howard Hughes has dedicated a lot of land in their plans to commercial so I could be wrong.. perhaps they keep land undeveloped like the Woodlands did until the time is right. My guess would be something similar to Vintage Park, maybe a bigger version of it.
  7. I'll take a mattress firm, a nail salon, a cheap donut and kolache place, a second mattress firm, and a starbucks, adjacent to a public storage and a poorly maintained convenience store with taco trucks out front. Home sweet home.
  8. Excuse the potato quality photo; I think this is really gonna help infill the greenway/upper kirby skyline from a lot of angles when complete.
  9. I'd imagine a lot of people that like the nightlife at Pacific St. would opt to live here.
  10. Perhaps it will be all the people downstream Cypress Creek coming back to make these new subdivisions pay for changing the floodplains.
  11. Whoever fixed this issue, thanks! I like to catch up on my phone without logging in sometimes.
  12. To be fair this was never really in Cypress. It's about as close to Cypress as it is to Jersey Village; certainly lackluster but probably the right choice given the demographics of the immediate area.
  13. As much as that would be cool and potentially necessary for the coming decades, that would actually service less people than this does.
  14. Those rental rates are going to come down to reality pretty soon for the next few years, but no doubt they'll be able to justify $2250/month for a 815 sq ft 1 bedroom once oil rebounds.
  15. Does anyone know where I can find the toll amounts for traveling on say Segment D to the end of F2? Surely something that is set to open within a week would have posted toll amounts somewhere online, but I haven't found any yet.

  17. Next to an old home depot and a strip center containing a dominos and a 99 cent store? This is the height of luxury! Actually on second thought given what's adjacent to it, how much are the lots going to be worth? It might be a great value for being so close to town.
  18. http://communityimpact.com/houston/development-construction/2016/01/22/groundbreaking-set-for-february-on-fedex-ground-distribution-facility-in-cypress/ "FedEx Corporation is preparing to break ground on what will be its largest ground distribution facility in Texas. The 800,000-square-foot hub will be located on a 484-acre tract of land at 8787 W. Grand Parkway N., Cypress. The site is located west of the Grand Parkway and north of FM 529, near where future extensions of West and Longenbaugh roads are expected to run. Few details have been released about the new hub, but officials said it will employ 400 people. Construction will begin in February, and the facility is slated for completion in August 2017. This is the second major project for FedEx in the Houston area. The company is also working on a 300,000-square-foot facility in Sugar Land, which will open this summer. FedEx Corporation released the following statement Jan. 25: 'The new facility, along with a new FedEx Ground building under construction in Sugar Land that is slated to open this summer, will enable us to continue to meet and exceed customer demands in the Houston area. The site was chosen because of its ease of access to major highways, proximity to customers’ distribution centers and a strong local community workforce for recruiting employees. The new facility is part of a nationwide network expansion to boost daily package volume capacity and further enhance the speed and service capabilities of the FedEx Ground network. Since 2005, the company has opened 11 new hubs featuring advanced material-handling systems and expanded or relocated more than 500 local facilities. The network enhancements have resulted in accelerating ground service delivery by one day or more in more than two-thirds of the United States. With these changes, FedEx Ground is faster to more overall locations, including more residential locations, than the competition.' "
  19. Pardon the power lines, but this building has a striking presence looking east down Westheimer all the way from Shepherd. There's a similar effect heading south on Montrose for that matter.
  20. It would be amazing if this city still keeps a sparing amount of these types of projects under construction in the midst of a downturn.
  21. Most people that live in that area end up at Vintage off Louetta for dining & retail.
  22. Well that alignment seems to segment the NW mall site from where passengers will be let off.
  23. I read that the overpass is not being designed to be able to, but reading that sentence out of an internet article is the extent of my knowledge so take that for what it's worth.
  24. Were there any issues raised for local concerns from Cypress residents there? Give me a few of their hot takes so that perhaps I won't have any new ones myself today.
