  1. Reported by the Chronicle: Lake Pointe development poised to take off I know Whole Foods is popular and this is a prime retail intersection for Sugar Land, would you shop at Whole Foods?
  2. Sugar Land could see 3 new hotels. Though the previously mentioned second Town Square hotel looks to be off the drawing boards. 4-story, 110-room Marriott Springfield Hill Suites - 2700 Town Center Lake Pointe 203-room Hilton Garden Inn - University & Hwy 6 View the full story.
  3. Here is a nice video from Fox 26 on the 2007 Christmas Tree Lighting at Town Square if you couldn't make it out. Christmas Tree Lighting
  4. Let's wait for the Sugar Land "haters" to spin this one. ' "Sugar Land 5th Safest"
  5. With all of the new stuff thats going on, it seems like they are obviously catering to the higher class. What about the middle class? Everything is getting more and more expensive sooner or later Sugar Land wont be a good city anymore.
  6. We are getting ready to enter market for a home and trying to decide between Pearland (Hwy288/FM518) and Sugarland (Hwy59/Hwy6). I tried to come-up with pros and cons of both. Ofcource, I would have missed something or got something incorrect. As you may infer, I am little biased toward sugarland but I would be more than happy to change that if needed. Add your comments please. Pearland Pros * Near to Downtown/Medical Center/Galleria (Easy access to these palces on non -peak hours) * Just started booming Cons * 288 getting worse day by day (May take 40 minutes to downtown on peak hours) * 288/518 area getting over crowded * Brazoria county, meaning hefty home insurance premium (windstorm) * Flooding in 288 when it rains heavily * Alvin/Pearland school District (some MasterPlannedCommunities Zoned to Alvin) * Average price of homes near 288/518 is $85 sq.ft. * Landfill expansion issue (the news itself, irrespective of whether it expands or not) sugarLand: Pros : * Established area for family living * fortbend ISD and good established schools * No (Few) flooding issues * No high insurance costs (flood/windstorm) * 59 upgrade/constructon completed till Hwy6 - Traffic not as bad as 288 or 290 or I10 * ALT 90 becoming another freeway by end of 2008 (?) and would provide alternate route to Medical Center / Downtown/ Galelria (if needed) * Average price of homes near 59/6 is $90 sq.ft Cons : * Alarming crime rate (though it varies by n'hoods) * Far from Downtown/Galleria/Medical center (Delayed access to these palces even at non-peak hours)
  7. People advised me to move toward midtown but I can't stand being in an area that has a high crime rate. I am from the OC in So Cal and looking for that type of vibe. Suburbs with some things going on and within driving distance to the action on the weekends. Commute to work is not a factor since I can telecommute. The things that attracted me to Sugarland are the following. * I sense Orange County of Houston vibe. * High Asian population. * Low crime rate? * Quiet neighborhood? I am looking at 200k for a house. Again, size of the house does not matter since again I am a single guy, actually I prefer the smaller the house the better. So. What area of Sugar land should I be looking at? If you can provide the zip codes that would help. I am visiting soon and would like to know if there are anything I should check out at Sugar Land, it will be during the weekend. Maybe the mall? Are there any condos in sugarland? How much should I plan for electricity bills, let's say for a 2000 sq ft house? Are there certain things I should look for in a house? Like energy efficient or maybe flooding wise? Thanks for you help. I worked in the entertainment industry while in LA but really want a quiet neighborhood where I can sleep forever if need be. Inside the loop of Houston does not seem to fit that description.
  8. I've created a thread in the sugarland section of this website comparing pros and cons of Sugarland and Pearland as we are trying to chose one of them. (Actually I have posted the same in this section also but mods have deleted it considering it as double post.). Following is the link to the other post http://www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/i...showtopic=13522 Would appreciate your feedback.
  9. There is talk by the city of Houston and Sugarland with regard to speed light cameras. They want to send you tickets in the mail for speeding just like they are doing for red light cameras. Anyone have more info on this?
  10. While going through historic photos of Sugar Land, my friend and I found this picture of the Sugar Land Mall. Does anyone here happen to know where this was located? http://texashistory.unt.edu/widgets/highli...1280.jpg&q=
  11. I am buying a house in Sugar Land in the Riverpark subdivision. I am in the negotiation process right now. However, using this link (www.floodsmart.gov/floodsmart), yesterday I just found out that Sugar Land is in a high risk of flood. This information made me panic . This house will be the biggest purchase I ever make. How bad the flood in the Sugar Land area?
  12. I just did a search of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation on Architectural Barriers Projects in Fort Bend County and these are some of the projects that came up: Home Goods, 2545 Town Center Blvd, Sugar Land (former Barnes & Noble, Targeted completion: 11.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7820223 City Park Renovations, 225 Seventh Street, Sugar Land (Targeted completion: 3.1.2008) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7820108 Chase Bank, 3651 Hwy 6, Sugar Land (New construction on former Chevron station, targeted completion: 5.1.2008) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7819815 First Colony Church Of Christ, 2140 First Colony Blvd, Sugar Land (Targeted completion: 10.1.2008) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7819546 Arby's, 6127 Highway 6, Missouri City (former Jumbles, Targeted completion: 10.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7818806 Triumph Hospital, 1550 First Colony Blvd, Sugar Land (addition/renovation, targeted completion: 3.1.2008) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7818590 Uncle Bob's Self Storage, 4717 Cartwright Rd, Missouri City (new construction, targeted completion: 8.1.2008) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7817859 Texana Center, 2535 Cordes Dr, Sugar Land (new construction, targeted completion: 8.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7816940 Sugar Land Mortuary, 1222 Eldridge Road, Sugar Land (targeted completion: 12.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7816853 Shell Food Mart / Burger King, 1250 FM 1092, Missouri City (targeted completion: 12.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7816254 Arby's, 1535 Highway 6, Sugar Land (targeted completion: 8.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7816216 Jack in the Box, Eldridge @ West Airport, Sugar Land (targeted completion: 11.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7815890 Dickey's Barbecue Pit, 24004 Southwest Freeway, Rosenberg (targeted completion: 9.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7815654 Ironstone Bank, 1295 Highway 6, Sugar Land (targeted completion: 6.1.2008) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7815653 Chase Bank, New Territory Blvd @ unknown street, Sugar Land (targeted completion: 12.1.2007) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7812085 Sugar Creek Baptist Church (Project cost: $20 MILLION), 13333 Southwest Freeway, Sugar Land (renovation/addition, targeted completion: 4.1.2008) http://www.license.state.tx.us/ABDataSearc...=EABPRJA7808306 http://ripple.sugarcreek.net/ In other words, this gives out the details of what is expected to emerge around here...

  13. Post your suggestions here. That's one thing we miss about living in the city - the plethora of great breakfast spots!
  14. My wife and I are considering a move to the Riverstone development. Does anyone have any thoughts on the development? It appears that only a small part of it is finished. We are considering waiting until the development within the Sugar Land section begins. We want to be zoned to the good SL schools such as Clements etc. The area around Riverstone seems nice to us, and it is close to all the amenities of SL. The price of the homes is a little steep, but this would be our long term permanent home. Any info about the development and quality of life there would be appreciated. We are also considering Sweetwater, which is close to Riverstone, but to me seems like an older development. Thanks.
  15. Didn't see this posted elsewhere, but it sounds like a few could be functioning possibly by the end of the summer. Check out this article.
  16. This article in the Fort Bend Herald discusses the possibilites of using the current proposals regarding the Brazos River Park, the potential Dynamo stadium and creating new districts for business and entertainment in the process.
  17. Relocating to Sugar Land. Need a place by June 1st or so. We've already had 2 deals fall through. One lady wanted us to give up our earnest money if the house didn't appraise as well as lease back the property for 25 days from us for FREE. Obviously we aren't going to agree to that. Other deal fell through cause they took the house off the market (divorce situation) We are running out of time. Want to be in a good area near good schools. We're having a hell of a time finding a nice home for a decent price. 3+ Bedrooms. 2+ baths, prefer laminate/wood over carpet, fenced backyard for the pets. Price range is up to $240,000.00 If you know of any by owner, through a realtor, anything....post some links. I am getting soooo frustrated. Thanks! Yeah, it seems like we shold be able to find something. P.S. Already working with a realtor so we don't need a realtor......just can't find the right house.
  18. What are they clearing the pad site for in front of Riverstone? It's between the new Johnny Carino's and the new light in front of Wal-Mart. I hope it's a restaurant, they already have enough retail sites there.
  19. Hello there! My name is Tammi and I am new to this forum. I am actually new to all forums! My husband and I are in the process of deciding where we would like to move. We really, really do not like Atlanta, and we think we have settled on Sugar Land. I have fallen in love with Chelsea Harbor from what I can see in pictures and wanted to know if anyone could give me some insight on the neighborhood and the area. We do not have children now, but probably will within the next year or two. I have only been able to find basic info about the area on the internet. I would like some real life feedback. Can anyone, would anyone please oblige? Thanks so much!
  20. In an effort to develop the Web 2.0 tools for the next generation of Real Estate here is one of our first attempts at in house video production. These types of videos are intended to promote the area and make it easier to promote the city to potential relocatees. Yes, the video is not ready for [Prime time. However, for what most agents can offer to out of town clients we are happy with the initial level. In the future we are expanding our reach out of Sugar Land and shooting for other areas in the city. If you do not mind providing a brief review I would appreciate it. http://www.wellcomemat.com/HoustonRealEstate Christopher Hurley www.sugarlandrelocation.com
  21. anyone know who owns the empty lot on sugar creek blvd...? i am very interested....
  22. About 25 years ago some friends and I were touring around the outskirts of Houston. We stumbled across a picturesque little Mission-style railroad depot surrounded by miles and miles of...nothing. It may have been in Sugar Land. Undoubtedly, the area would now be completely developed and bear no resemblance to my memory of the place. Does anyone know where the depot is (or was)? It's my understanding that this architectural style was popular with the Southern Pacific line. I hope someone had the foresight to preserve this beautiful little building.
