  1. I've lived in Sienna since 2004, and highly recommend it. Regarding the access concerns, eventually the Fort Bend Tollway will extend south of Highway 6, and cross directly through Sienna. In addition, there are several ways in and out. If you are coming from the south on Hwy6, you can get into Sienna from McKeever, Watts Plantation or Trammel Fresno - all before the main entrance. If you are coming from the north on 6, you can get in from the new entrance at Oyster Creek about a mile from the main entrance. Also, sometime in the next year or so, there will be an additional entrance from the
  2. Interesting article - thanks for the link!
  3. Indeed - anyone who finds these pics interesting should check out HOUSTON FREEWAYS.
  4. Great find - thanks for posting!
  5. That was a good article - thanks for the link.
  6. FYI - probably one of the best websites for Astroworld information is: http://www.sixflagshouston.com/ ...it has everything you want to know - and then some!
  7. It is a VERY interesting place. Continental Airlines is currently using it as a disaster recovery site. If downtown Houston is wiped out, Continental can continue operations from Weslin. This place is amazing - the security is SUPER tight - it was built as a fallout shelter - and intended to support 100's of people for many months. It had sleeping quarters, doctors offices, and as someone else mentioned - even a jail. Another thing I found interesting were are all the gun turrets located throughout the complex - in those pagodas. Continental has 'reconfigured' the site to support our bu
  8. I am also very glad that these have been made available on-line. However, I wish that you could 'right click' and 'save picture as'. ...as opposed to having to 'print screen' (although it is nice to include the associated text somtimes).
  9. So, it's only 'overrated' if you are spending less than $300,000? I'm not trying to argue, I just want to understand your logic. Did you know that ALL homes purchased in Sienna Plantation have access to the same amenities? Yes, even those that purchase homes for less than $300,000 have the same access to the pools, fitness center, parks, club house, recreation facillities, etc. IMHO, it is the extra amenities, and the quality of the development as a whole that allows them to charge a premium. Yes, a house that might cost only $130,000 in Teal Run will run close to $180,000 in Sienna Plant
  10. After extensive research, I moved into Sienna Plantation in 2004. While I did not build an 'estate', I did spend about $300,000 of my (and my wife's) hard earned money. Sure, we could have purchased in some of the other less expensive developments - but let me explain some of my reasoning for making my decision. 1st, I liked the fact that Sienna was wooded, and makes an effort to keep as many natural trees as possible. There may have been some sections that were originally cotton fields - but a majority of Sienna Plantation was not (unless they somehow managed to farm cotten in the thick
  11. Ahhh, you beat me to the punch. I saw the article in the Chron this morning: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/headli...iz/5186531.html
  12. This was posted in the Developer News section of the Sienna Plantation website: H-E-B Is Coming to Sienna! Shopping is about to get easier for residents of Sienna Plantation thanks to a major land sale to H-E-B at the intersection of Hwy. 6 and Sienna Parkway. H-E-B plans to construct a store with more than 113,000 square feet bringing the first grocery-anchored center to Sienna Plantation. H-E-B has not yet set a schedule or determined what type of store it will open, but the San Antonio-based grocer has been bringing in products from Central Market to new stores to complement its staple-low
  13. A study of the 100 year flood plain of Brazos river is being done. Results will most likely be released this fall. Expected re-mapping of Floodplain in 2008/2009 timeframe and the floodplain is expected to be higher than it is now. Sienna Levees were built 2 feet higher than what is required by FEMA and we do not expect Sienna to be affected by the new floodplain map. Some older parts of Sugarland might have to raise their Levees or be in the new floodplain. Info above taken from this post: http://www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/i...showtopic=11969
  14. That is the coolest webcam I've ever seen. ...archives from every day, weather, map - and Timelapse!
  15. And did anyone suggest that there probably is a direct correlation between the increase in vagrants (homeless) and the increase in robberies??
