  1. No, I don't think so. Sorry for the confusion. I was just making the point that people will drive a really long way to go to an outlet with nice stores. Me and my friend driving from Houston to San Marcos for PB, for example. For that reason, I think that this outlet will draw from all over the city with the nice selection of stores it has, not just the northwest area.
  2. I think this outlet will pull from much more than the local community. I mean me and my friend will travel from here to the San Marcos outlets (we love Pottery Barn) a couple of times a year. Based on the selection of stores, this outlet will draw from all over the city and beyond.
  3. Check out The Enclave at Southern Trails (518 exit off of 288). Newmark and Trophy Homes are the builders. Also check out the Shadow Creek Ranch (Shadow Creek Pkwy/2234 exit off of 288) new home center, they can give you a list of the neighborhoods within your price range. There are homes in the $175K range. Finally do a HAR search for zip code 77584 with the amenities that you want.
  4. My only question was one about the comment someone made about annexing. I was confused about that statement, not whether or not someone moves to Pearland for a job.
  5. Perhaps I'm ignorant to the process but who's going to annex Pearland? It's a city, with a mayor and a city council. It's not like Kingwood or Clear Lake. Maybe I'm misunderstanding .
  6. Is Pearland a bit farther out than you want to go because there are houses in that price range.
  7. Another poster mentioned some details about this in the Pearland Retail Development thread. This article from the Pearland Journal provides additional details http://www.hcnonline.com/site/news.cfm?new...32247&rfi=6 Seems that Metro and The Medical Center are working together on this and want to tap into the nearly 4000 Medical Center employees who live in Pearland.
  8. I actually think it's a prime location for them even if nothing else is ever built there. They'll catch quite a few customers who are headed to the water.
  9. George- Glad you mentioned the Spectrum and us getting stuck paying for this TIRZ. Do you have any inside info on this development? While there is a great deal of progress on the Pearland Town Center (which doesn't really have city backing) the Spectrum seems to be at at standstill (with a great deal of city support). The only store that they've announced is the Bass Pro Shop. Also, do you have any idea what type of offices will be housed in this building that will be built in conjunction with the park and ride? Are they Metro and Med Center offices? Finally, I also heard that TXDOT wants ra
  10. The Modern Bed & Breakfast hosts small events. http://www.bbonline.com/tx/modern/
  11. Yes. It sounds like it's adjacent to the Pearland Town Center, not a part of that development.
  12. Honestly, I don't think it's an issue with anyone and I don't think it's visible from Sunrise Lakes. It's certainly not stopping any sales in that area, even for the neighborhood that's right next door to it. Also, the newest high school is going in on the same street about a block from the cemetary.
  13. BIG NEWS - The developer of the Portofino shopping center, a 500,000-square-foot development near The Woodlands built to resemble a Venetian cityscape, is embarking on a new project in Pearland. Jefco Development and the Maverick Group are developing the Parks at Boulder Creek at Beltway 8 and Pearland Parkway. The property wraps around a 360-acre park. Construction on a two-story, 55,000-square-foot retail and office complex has started, and additional phases are planned that are expected to include more retail and office space, apartments, lofts and townhomes. The developers also sold 26 a
  14. For me, that's such a tough question to answer for someone I don't know personally. I will say that I live in Silverlake and I like it. The Silverlake/Silvercreek community is pretty close knit and there are always neighborhood-wide activities. There are a ton of young families with young kids. I like being in Pearland ISD because I like the direction they are taking and the fact that it's an Exemplary district. That said, I think Shadowcreek is a beautiful neighborhood that is much larger with more amenities. You should also look at Southern Trails which is right across 518 from SCR. It is
  15. I saw it. It is gorgeous. I'll have the kids with me though so I thought the La Cantera might be better for them.
  16. Great, thanks. I'll be staying at the Westin soon.
  17. Where are these shops in relation to the Westin La Cantera?
  18. I read about the UH Clear Lake campus in the Pearland Journal. It was on the front page of last week's newspaper. Here's the story: http://www.hcnonline.com/site/news.cfm?new...32247&rfi=6
  19. I read that a UH - Clear Lake campus was going up in the "real" Pearland on Pearland Parkway.
  20. Well there are a number of big and small developments that have been mentioned on in other threads on this board . Here are some of the more well known projects that I can think of off the top of my head: HEB Plus/Hobby Lobby/La Madeleine/Academy http://www.transwestern.net/resource/Media...p?Story_ID=1008 Pearland Town Center - Macy's, Dillards, Barnes & Noble, Marriott Courtyard as well as the following smaller boutiques/retail shops: Chico
  21. I actually went through Shepherd Park Terrace this weekend. I was shocked to see that many houses didn't seem to be participating. It used to be fantastic.
  22. I think this is smaller (more of a nice strip center) but it sits right between two other town center projects -- Pearland Town Center and Promenade at the Spectrum. Those will both be more in line with what might you consider a "real" town center. They'll both have shops, resturants, hotels and living space above retail.
  23. I also read an article in the Houston Business Journal today that another top developer was coming to Pearland. I do not have paid access to the entire article but the link is attached. http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto.../30/story5.html G HBJ has now made the story available for free. http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto.../30/story5.html
  24. I think Pearland's biggest strength is it's proximity of the city. Rush hour doesn't last forever. It's nice to be able to take my kids to the zoo or Children's Museum in 15 or 20 minutes. I think the second biggest factor is that since the Pearland's West end is growing, it still has nice homes (new and older) available in the prime neighborhoods, in a variety of price ranges. I want a nice house, with a yard and good schools for my kids. Pearland has all of those things. As far as why we chose Pearland as opposed to comparable suburbs. As for me and my family, we considered the following
  25. Quick question since Chamo mentioned the university. Not trying to hijack the thread Is the planned university a branch of UT? I ask because I heard that UT nursing school was planning a campus in Pearland. Does anyone know the timeline.
