  1. https://abc13.com/sugar-land-jobs-employment-in-medical-field-houston-area-mill/12786179/ "Nearly 20% of jobs in Sugar Land are in the medical field. The largest employer isn't a mill but a hospital, which has changed a lot in 15 years. https://www.fbherald.com/community/houston-methodist-sugar-land-hospital-celebrates-25-years-of-service/article_17c05a2e-7361-5332-bedd-169137809dc5.html "During an April 28 employee celebration to mark the hospital’s silver anniversary, Houston Methodist President and Chief Executive Officer Marc Boom, M.D., recalled the grand opening of Houston Methodist Sugar Land 25 years ago. “I remember turning and saying, ‘I think we are going to need a bigger hospital.’ It took us a little while, but look at where we are today,” he said. “You all are trailblazers because this was our very first site that we built outside the Texas Medical Center.”
  2. By that line of reasoning, the Woodlands is a south Houston wanna-be since Southern Star Amphitheatre was already an up and running outdoor concert venue when the Pavilion was built in the Woodlands. Or more realistically, the Woodlands is a long-ass drive from Sugar Land and the residents that live there have the money and inclination to tax themselves to get a venue a lot closer to them. The venue is going to be 6.500 seats which is about 1/3 the size of the Woodlands Pavilion - so it should cater to different acts and be more of a complement than a competitor. The corner of University and 59S is going to be interesting in the next few years. Every couple of years UH adds another building to their campus there, this is now going in there and I read somewhere that Fluor had secured a large chuck of land at that intersection (I want to say 50 acres but I might be wrong since I can't locate it right now) which sounds like they might be moving their campus from Highway 6 and 59S - I believe their lease there runs for about 5 more years.

  5. http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/business/3047139 Feb. 19, 2005, 12:40AM Developers have ideas for Imperial land By NANCY SARNOFF and ERIC HANSON Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle The sprawling Imperial Sugar refinery, once the center of Sugar Land's economic and social life, is being sold to developers who hope to return it to that status with a project mixing condominiums, single-family homes and retail space. On Friday, Imperial Sugar announced that it reached a preliminary agreement with a partnership of Cherokee Investment Partners and W.C. Perry Land Development to buy the 160-acre Fort Bend County property. "We'll be turning a blight on the community into something more viable and preserving the historic nature of the sight," said W.C. Perry's Will Perry, the son of well-known residential developer Bob Perry of Perry Homes. The elder Perry is not involved. Ultimately, this proposed development could include much more than the old sugar refinery. Perry said the groups will try to acquire a 550-acre tract of state-owned land northwest of the property and redevelop the entire parcel. The prospect of redevelopment is a relief to area residents who have been concerned about living next door to an empty and decaying industrial complex. "I think, for the most part, most people are very excited to know there will be something there instead of a vacant factory with a lot of buildings that need to be demolished. It's looking pretty tacky right now," said Kristin Lytle, who founded the Friends of Old Sugar Land. Perry sees the central feature in the proposed development as something similar to San Antonio's River Walk or The Woodlands Waterway. Oyster Creek runs through the property. Plans are still very preliminary, however, as the group hasn't yet struck a deal with the state on the additional acreage or closed on the Imperial Sugar property. The developers won't discuss the terms or additional details about the proposed project until it is further along. Their deal to buy the Imperial Sugar property could close by year-end, but they must complete a detailed review. Other groups have looked at the sugar refinery site, but it goes back to the early 1900s, and Cherokee's experience in redeveloping old industrial plants helped get the attention of Imperial Sugar executives. The Raleigh, N.C.-based real estate firm buys contaminated properties like old manufacturing and refining sites, cleans up any environmental damage and sells or develops them in partnerships. In 2003, Cherokee closed a $620 million fund
  6. I was looking at a 1955 map of Sugar Land when I noticed an oval race track. The oval track is near Alkire Lake, Eldridge Lake, and the Houston Fishing Club Lake. Edit: This could also be considered Stafford, Texas. While searching for a name of the race track, Sugar Land's official government website indicates the race track belonged to one of the cofounders of Sugar Land, Benjamin Franklin Terry. According to Wikipedia, Benjamin Terry lived from February 18, 1821 to December 17, 1861. Looking for traces of the race track, I found it on both Google Earth Desktop and HA. HA had aerial photos of the race track in 1953. I don't think the race track would still be visible and still in the oval shape some 92 years after Benjamin Terry had died. The race track would be covered up with grass and trees over the past 90 years. Unless if someone, or some group, kept the race track alive for 92 years after Benjamin Terry's death. The City of Sugarland's history page says this: The Terry/Kyle plantation, particularly Terry’s opulent home, became the area’s social center. The house included a ballroom and was close to a horse track. Terry’s home and race track were located near today’s Sugar Mill Elementary School; 13707 Jess Pirtle Blvd, Sugar Land, TX 77498. The track was located at the intersection of South Kirkwood Road and Wright Road; just off South Main Street (Highway 90). You can map it yourselves by going to Walong Marketing, Inc. at 12950 S Kirkwood Rd, Stafford, TX 77477.
  7. I was browsing The Bellaire & Southwestern Texan dated September 23, 1964 and came across a business listing for Palms Theatre. Palms Theatre - Sugar Land, Texas 10 Min. Out On S-W Frway. I never even heard of this theater. I don't see anything on the famous cinematreasures.org archive website either. Was this possibly rebranded? Is there an exact address for this place? Looks like it's somewhere off 59 South/Southwest Freeway. Very cool find! Anyone ever been here?

  9. They just received a $2mil grant for a "feasibility" study on future expansion on the airport for possible use as a support center in the avionics industry. While initially they are talking about buying out the prison and surrounding areas, I find it interesting that they are doing this just as SL residence are finally getting some "peace and quiet" from the new railroad improvements that were passed only just recently. Once this airport gets the nod (backed by Congressman ® Lampson), I'm sure things will move on relatively quickly. I imagine this will pretty much squash any hopes that pearland's hopes of expansion (as discussed here).
  10. I noticed in the recent real estate transaction Dhanani Private Equity Group buys 50-acres from the Fluor Corporation there were parcels of land owned by the University of Texas System/Board of Regents. I wonder what could go here in the future? Maybe a small UTHealth Sugar Land Campus? Or they could sell the land to a developer to create a mixed-use development. I see Brookfield Properties owns the corner parcel. I would imagine the two would combine the parcels into one big plat.
  11. Ready or not...here we come!!! We anticipate November opening at the old Cupcake Cafe location behind the mall.
  12. The Memorial-Hermann Hospital in Sugarland in being built. There is a rumour that a lot of the staff will transfer from the TMC location to the Sugarland location. Any one have any architecture information on the new facility? We would like to post that information on http://www.sugarlandinfo.net Thanks. Memorial-Hermann Staff
  13. Per Bisnow, this memorial was recently dedicated in Memorial Park in Sugar Land. Haven't heard of using tilt-wall for this sort of construction before. More on the design and planning can be found here.
  14. This newly built strip center in the River Park neighborhood is at the corner of Grand Parkway and Imperia Dr. Wulfe & Co. is the owner. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/Grand-Parkway-Shopping-Ctr-Sugar-Land-TX/13890814/
  15. In early 2018, construction at the site of Fort Bend ISD’s new James Reese Career and Technical Center unearthed a forgotten piece of Sugar Land’s past: a historic cemetery where 95 individuals were buried, believed to be a part of a convict-leasing program that began in the late 1800s. https://www.fortbendisd.com/sugarland95
  16. Noticed this completed development on Medistar's website. https://medistarcorp.com/completed/ Completed in 2010, Medistar developed St. Luke's Sugar Land Hospital and Medical Plaza as a five-story, 220,000 square foot hospital. The hospital is complemented by a five-story, 125,000 square foot medical office building featuring a linear accelerator to support MD Anderson Cancer Center, a major tenant in the MOB.

  19. Bizjournal article here. Three local developers are joining forces and eliminating property lines to create a massive master-planned development on 4,600 acres of pasture land in League City. McAlister Co., Wynne Jackson/Eland Joint Venture and M. Sherman & Associates Land Development plan to create separate but contiguous residential projects on land they already own along the future Grand Parkway, west of Interstate 45 and north of FM 517. The entire project will include more than 10,000 homes and provide League City with a commercial center, a town center and a light industrial center. .......... The Grand Parkway seems to be spurring sprawl like the Metrorail should spur density. Both are our destiny.
