  1. There is truth to it. It may not go down like that but the Tarkett redevelopment will be exciting, only so much can be said at this point.
  2. you guys are close, think summer/hicks street improvements , oliver street extension?, feeder improvements?, studemont improvements?, signals gone, added?, etc.
  3. A proper indoor upscale mall (not an outlet mall) would see a lot of foot traffic and the area would support it IMO.
  4. I live in the Cinco Ranch area. I have driven this section 3 times since it opened. Once to the outlet malls and twice as a route to North Texas, Dallas and Possum Kingdom. That worked quite well allowing me to avoid all of 45 and the beltway south of Madsonville big time saver too.
  5. These are being built near Cinco Ranch not really within. At the northeast corner of the intersection, behind the shell station of Westpark Tollway and Mason. The neighborhood of closest proximity is Canyon Gate just to the the north
  6. If I had bought a new home in one of these nieghborhoods I don't think I would be too excited about Bellaire eventually being completed into the mission bend area and on to highway 6.
  7. Southampton Montessori is a good one.
  8. Ok forgive me because I was born in 76 so I was truly a child of the 80's bad hair, clothes, everything. We lived off Reveille/35 just outside the loop very near Gulfgate mall. My world was pretty small then, so here is what I recall as cool in Houston at the time for me. 1. Astroworld - back in it's prime. 2. Gulfgate Mall - cool things. The bowling alley under the mall. The Vision Street Wear store. the theater with the pedestrian bridge over 610. 3. NASA - was a cool tour back then before they built SCH. 4. Stewart Beach in Galveston. 5. Putt Putt and Supertrack on I-45 south - arcade!
  9. Ok I comprehend now, sometimes you read something and it just doesn't come from the perspective you think it should or something.. anyways. When I used to live way in town I went to Whole Foods once, My impressions as I remember them were, this place is for those "granola" people, then I went back to Krogers on West Gray. That was about 12 years ago so my opinion and memory may fail me and I will have to check it out.
  10. Regarding the design of 99 without feeder roads in the segment between the westpark tollway and I-10. My understanding was that this section was designed under the idea that it would never be tolled like the rest of the Grand Parkway. Since selfishly I live in the area I will take the lesser of two evils and make due without having access to the commercial sites from a ramp, rather than having to pay a toll to go 2 miles several times a week. I can avoid the Fry Road mess and never go there on weekends. I could see driving through that area before it was built out that a good majority of the homes west of 99 in this area are landlocked of sorts and have one or at best two avenues out and thus congestion.
