  11. (Beaumont) - Construction is underway on a $70 million development off Dowlen Road where you can live and work. Metropolitan Park, a 35-acre project, will include a plaza with retail and commercial shopping, restaurants and office space. A short walk away will be one- to four-bedroom condominiums starting at $180,000. A residential section will include 40 lots, where half are sold. Developers expect the retail spaces to be ready within a year. The condominiums should be available in the next two years.

  12. Water connects dots in grand design for downtown Beaumont BEAUMONT - Water taxis, a two-acre marina with theater and an expansive lawn are ideas being tossed about in the plans for a downtown lake/waterway and event center that could take its first steps toward reality as soon as next summer. On Tuesday, two Houston design firms outlined their proposals to establish downtown as a destination complete with a lake, waterway and marina. "We as individuals are mostly composed of water. We as a planet are mostly composed of water," Scott Slaney, principal architect of the Houston-based SWA Group, told the City Council. "Water is a very special natural resource that we hope to take full advantage of." Slaney said in order for the lake to remain healthy, defined as not growing algae and attracting mosquitoes - it needs to be at least two acres big and six- to nine-feet deep. The entire lake/event center park property is about 16 acres and is located between Neches Street and Martin Luther King Parkway off Crockett Street. http://www.beaumontenterprise.com/news/loc...8_21_50_02.html
  13. http://www.beaumontenterprise.com/news/loc...8_22_34_01.html Downtown project could turn Beaumont into little Kemah Picture it: A vibrant downtown with a placid lake and rippling waterway crowded with people. That's city leaders' vision for downtown Beaumont. On Tuesday, a Houston architectural firm is scheduled to present a conceptual design of a proposed lake off Martin Luther King Parkway at Crockett Street and a waterway near the entertainment district. Initially, city officials envisioned a 10-acre lake between Neches Street and Martin Luther King on parcels of land owned by 23 different interests. However, plans now call for a scaled-back version of the lake - two to three acres - to allow for more thus-far undisclosed amenities, City Manager Kyle Hayes said last month. The design for the proposed downtown lake, waterway and something to tie it all together all is in the hands of SWA of Houston. SWA's resume includes work along Buffalo Bayou in Houston as well as waterfront projects in San Diego, Long Beach, and as far away as Beijing. For Beaumont, the project could turn out to be something like a smaller version of Kemah or The Woodlands.
