  1. Awesome, I'm glad they finally caught one of the thieves!
  2. It's just the drive-thru that's open 24 hours. The doors close @ 10. I drove thru last week
  3. Yep..it's way overpriced too. I almost laughed when she gave me the prices.
  4. Pearland doesn't give a crap about safety..only $$ We've needed a turning lane on Shadow Creek Parkway going east to turn on Reflection Bay since Shadow Creek opened. There's not even a shoulder you can pull into. With traffic going 50-60mph..you can easily get rear ended by someone not paying attention. I've even passed by a few accidents there. Now with the shopping center opening up in that intersection..they just created a nice safe turning lane there right after Reflection Bay, for a shopping center that's not even open. They wouldn't want you to get hurt in a car accident before you can give them some sales tax revenue..no way. Bunch of jokers.
  5. This sounds way too much like an ad. Considering this is your 1st post...i'm guessing you work for Newmark.
  6. I don't know why they even need a second garage. I work at the Heritage Plaza & the garage isn't even half full, even though the building is 85% occupied. Seems like a waste of money to me, especially with more & more people taking the bus, rail & carpooling.
  7. I didn't end up closing on the house cause of all the break-ins in the new Oak Hollow section. There were 2 sets of break-ins in April...both delaying my closing which was already late. Not only did they steal from my house...but also several empty Imperial inventory homes & one owner that closed on his home, but didn't move in yet. My house was stolen from at least 4 times in the past 5 months. These weren't 'casual', pick up some material left on the floor thefts, but a lot more organized & violent. In the last 2 thefts they broke open the rear door, tearing apart the door frame. Then they ripped the alarm siren from the wall & stole the front door. They did this to several other homes before getting away. After the 3rd theft, Ashton Woods put a computer printed sign on my doors saying that the house is under video surveillance...without actually having video surveillance like the Trendmaker section does....so they took it in their return trip. I bet the thugs are having a good laugh over Corona's right about now. The last theft, discovered a couple hours before my closing, was the last straw...we no longer felt safe there. There goes 8 months of my life wasted planning on this house. Obviously their undercover security is not enough...who knows, they're probably in on it. All the thefts happened late night after hours..hopefully they step up their watch before they lose any more sales. If not, buy a shotgun if you plan on living in that section.
  8. Wow..so after the $750 HOA Fee, $100 HOA Transfer Fee, and a $375 suprise there's an extra HOA fee we didn't tell you about until closing day..they want to charge $10 per key? Absurd.
  9. Even my realtor didn't do her homework before showing me homes in Eden Cove recently. Perry has some real nice homes with great floorplans with big incentives in Eden Cove. The only thing that stopped me was the dump..oh yea..and the schools.
  10. Yep, I saw him out there yesterday morning hiding behind some bushes. It's a good thing they don't have laser radars..I can pick up his signal way ahead of time. There's no reason that street should be 30mph. There's nothing in that stretch, even schools. ...Another example of unfair taxation.
  11. Who's great idea was it to have that kind of brick/fence wall? Their backyard is visible to whoever drives along that road. There is zero privacy! I think I remember a wooden fence there, until it was replaced by this...I bet those homeowners were pissed. I would have put up something also.
  12. The area where I live now got annexed by Pearland last year. The 1st thing they did was reduce the speed limits and put up stop signs in unnecessary annoying places. It's all about the money. One Pearland cop who lives in my neighborhood got sneaky. He normally parks his patrol car in the street...but every once in a while..he's in it with his radar on, giving tickets to anyone who goes over 25. Kirby has no business being 35mph..it's ridiculous. They clearly aren't using the '85th percentile method' or a recommendation by a traffic engineer..but are controlling the speed limits to tax the public. I wish they'd put speed limits on streets up for discusson, instead of deciding it for themselves.
  13. Looks good except for the brick indoors..but i guess some folks like it. Nice floor plan too, like most Ashton Woods plans. Woah..it has 50k in upgrades! You can expect at least 30k off that asking price.
  14. finally..a good use for that puking icon
  15. Yea..Imperial homes also signed on a 3 homes in the past month, offering extra incentives to get some more sales in, in '07.
  16. True..but there's reason to go farther west than Katy or farther north than Woodlands. If you live in those locations, it would be easier for you to make those out of city treks. There's not much south of Alvin. It'll be good for those who work in Lake Jackson/Freeport..but that's about it.
  17. Wow..that's pretty far south. Here's the map of the proposed Grand Parkway http://www.grandpky.com/home/gpky_map.asp It's closer to Lake Jackson than Houston. I don't see this being a success.
  18. No..that's the community across the street from Country Place A friend of mine used to work at the club house at Country Place. The club house is pretty nice for parties! Big screen,nice stereo system, kitchen, gym, etc..and they have regular activities going on. The houses there are U.S. Homes & there have been complaints about the home quality. That's all I know
  19. Maria..which side of Shadow Creek do you live in? Is it east or west of Kingsley?
  20. I hope not..i'm not so into it. It looks like a Sienna Plantation section. It'll block the view of the beautiful Trendmaker homes in the front.
  21. It's not a grocery store..it's a show. The prices sucked...almost everything is more expensive than other HEB's and the Walmart across the street. The only item I found was cheaper, is milk. Since Walmart won't be as crowded..i'll keep doing my shopping there so I can get in & out quickly & not get distracted by the Cooking Connection chefs & everyone else that has a mic, screaming into the crowd.
  22. twgreen, Do we have a name, yet for the section in the back that Ashton Woods & Imperial are currently building on? Last time I asked Blanca, she didn't know.
  23. Yea the food @ Mely's at the new location was not up to par. I miss the old Mely's at the old location..they had live music & it was always packed..Friday & Saturday nights had long waiting lines..and the food was excellent. Then the crappy overhyped Mexican restaurants closer to 288 came in & stole their business. It was all downhill from then. I have to travel into town or east to the Baybrook area for good Mexican food now.
  24. Woah..that sucks..Willowridge & McAuliffe are horrible. The chances that your kid will get beat up several times & get bullied regularly is pretty high. Trust me..i went to Missouri City Middle School...it's pretty similar to McAuliffe. I'm thankful my parents moved before I had to go to Willowridge. Spending all that money on a house and paying those taxes..and you have to send your kids to those crappy schools? I'd definitely be looking to sue them for false advertising or something.
