  1. I had not heard this or seen this posted before so I thought I would pass it along. I'm glad someone will finally be occupuying the old Compaq building. http://impactnews.com/northwest-houston/335-recent-news/7446-sysco-corporation-plans-to-open-new-facility-in-cypress
  2. Caldwell companies announces a new 15-acre, upscale town center-style development akin to CityCentre and Market Street for the Cypress area at FM 1960 and Hwy 290. The development will include a central park area, hotel and conference center, retail, restaurants, Class A offices, etc. More details here: http://impactnews.com/houston-metro/cy-fair/cypress-crossing-development-to-serve-as-new-mixed-use-cente/
  3. Hello all, This is my first post to the forms. I noticed while out today, the building at 11411 FM 1960 is currently being demolished on 11/2/21 . From my research, I have found that the building was formally a dealership, Northwest Suzuki. I know that it has stood vacant for at least 3 years, as that is how long I have been coming to the area on a regular basis. I can't find anything on the internet about the demolition or what the property will be used for in the future. I have some pictures I will try to upload later to preserve this small, rather insignificant part of Houston history. I hope there are others who maybe know more about this property, and are willing to share. It has fascinated me for years, as do many abandoned and run down structures.
  4. Noticed this on Satya Inc.'s website. https://satyainc.com/condo-hotel-office/
  5. There is ground work happening at the corner of Spring Cypress and Skinner Roads in Cy-Fair Town Center. Any know what's going in? NewQuest sold the development to Inland American (http://inlandamerican.propertycapsule.com/properties/40040102/#overview) a few years ago. Neither company lists this activity. Inland plans show the area as part of the parking lot but it's still grass.
  6. Prose At Huffmeister is on the most recent planning agenda. Alliance Residential sure is pumping out a lot of these Prose projects.
  7. Where there every gangs in the Cypress/Copperfield/Bear Creek/Chimney Hill area from around 1992 to around 97? A source told me that there were gangs with names like: Little Valley 13 The Village Latin Kings PBM13 Bloods Crips Blue Devils Not sure if this information is correct.
  8. Odd location for something like this, but I guess they see something in it. This is all the way out in Cypress. Plans are for a large scale mixed use development. Developer: i3 + Edge Realty + Transwestern Architect: Identity Architects + Landology More from HBJ: https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/07/17/houston-real-estate-co-developing-24-acre-mixed.html Images from article:
  9. https://communityimpact.com/houston/cy-fair/housing-real-estate/2018/12/21/102-acre-tract-containing-weiser-airpark-goes-up-for-sale-in-cy-fair/ The most recent print edition of Community Impact Cy-Fair has this story, and it is updated, stating that the asking price is $24 million, which works out to $235,000 per acre. I don't know anything about land prices in the area, but that seems high. The print article says "the land will most likely be sold to an industrial user, based on current offers". l suppose that most likely means warehouses. The property is mostly bordered by subdivisions, including a large unused peninsula-shaped section of the property on the north side of the air strip. The print article says "the Weiser family plans to maintain ownership of a separate tract of land east of Huffmeister Road, which the family uses to raise cattle." If they get anything near $235K per acre for the airport, I'm thinking they may not be running cattle for very long on the remaining tract.
  10. Does anyone know if there will be any high rises in this area? There is tremendous growth along the grand pkwy not to mention more homes being built. Please merge if this has already been mentioned. Thanks. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2017/07/21/developer-to-unveil-second-phase-of-massive-master.html
  11. There is a lot of available land at the SE juncture of 290 @ 99 and north of Cypress creek here. I am curious if anyone has any information (or a way of obtaining it) about this land. Does someone own it outright now and they're sitting on it? Is any of this slated for any type of development any time soon, or is this still farmland and whoever owns it isn't willing to sell it? Does this area flood really badly from Cypress creek and that's why nothing has developed? It feels that development is almost skipping over this area and going further out along 290, so it's got me wondering. The only thing I know for sure is that the proposed high speed rail alignment currently would go through here on the tracks just south and parallel to the freeway. It doesn't look like they're going to put a stop in Cypress for the train, but if they did then this area would be perfect for a slightly more dense mixed-use center attached to a train station.. it won't happen, but one can certainly dream.
  12. http://communityimpact.com/houston/development-construction/2016/01/22/groundbreaking-set-for-february-on-fedex-ground-distribution-facility-in-cypress/ "FedEx Corporation is preparing to break ground on what will be its largest ground distribution facility in Texas. The 800,000-square-foot hub will be located on a 484-acre tract of land at 8787 W. Grand Parkway N., Cypress. The site is located west of the Grand Parkway and north of FM 529, near where future extensions of West and Longenbaugh roads are expected to run. Few details have been released about the new hub, but officials said it will employ 400 people. Construction will begin in February, and the facility is slated for completion in August 2017. This is the second major project for FedEx in the Houston area. The company is also working on a 300,000-square-foot facility in Sugar Land, which will open this summer. FedEx Corporation released the following statement Jan. 25: 'The new facility, along with a new FedEx Ground building under construction in Sugar Land that is slated to open this summer, will enable us to continue to meet and exceed customer demands in the Houston area. The site was chosen because of its ease of access to major highways, proximity to customers’ distribution centers and a strong local community workforce for recruiting employees. The new facility is part of a nationwide network expansion to boost daily package volume capacity and further enhance the speed and service capabilities of the FedEx Ground network. Since 2005, the company has opened 11 new hubs featuring advanced material-handling systems and expanded or relocated more than 500 local facilities. The network enhancements have resulted in accelerating ground service delivery by one day or more in more than two-thirds of the United States. With these changes, FedEx Ground is faster to more overall locations, including more residential locations, than the competition.' "
  13. Found some new renderings for the Towne Lake Boardwalk restaurant, retail and entertainment development near Barker Cypress & Tuckerton:
  14. A new Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market is going in at Cypresswood and Aldine Westfield. Trees were all clear cut this week. Very sad to see them gone.
  15. Anyone else going to the Cypress meeting? Just wondering who else is going. I know a few have already expressed interest. Location: Cypress April 23, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Tin Hall 14800 Tin Hall Road Cypress, TX 77429
  16. I saw Susquehannah Drive mentioned in a post from 2007 and wanted to shine some light on it, as I spent several months in 2014 researching the area and what happened to it. Apparently, in the very early 90's, the neighborhood of Tower Oaks Plaza, which sits just south of today's Cypress-North Houston & Eldridge, was bisected by the extension of Eldridge Parkway from FM 1960 to Grant Rd. The neighborhood looks to have been built in the 1950's, and consisted of a loop known as Morgan Drive/Morgan Loop, and included the streets Mills Ln, Lieder Dr., Oralia Dr., and Susquehannah Dr. Susquehannah Dr. ran south from Cypress-North Houston Rd. into the heart of Tower Oaks Plaza, touching Mills and Lieder, and finally ending on what is now West Morgan Dr. When Eldridge Parkway was extended through the middle of the neighborhood, it completely overshadowed the Susquehannah right of way, and the road was done away with altogether. The only traces left today are a wide bank of grass on the east side of Eldridge as you approach Cypress-North Houston, with a drainage ditch placed much further from the roadside than you would normally see. Where Susquehannah ended at W. Morgan, very close to Oralia, there is only a portion of raised earth sitting in an otherwise uninterrupted drainage ditch on the side of the road. There seems to be zero traces of the actual old road surface anywhere. However, a local resident of the community saved a street sign for Susquehannah Dr. and posted it in their front yard, as some sort of permanent homage to their beloved neighborhood street that was erased from existence in the name of progress. I could imagine the community was quite upset over the ordeal, but I have yet to speak with anyone who was directly affected by the project. I'd love to have a chat with the folks who own the Susquehannah street sign and hear their story.
  17. According to this report from ArtInfo, the frescoes which are currently housed in the Menil Collection's Byzantine Fresco Chapel will be returned to Cyprus next year: http://www.artinfo.com/news/story/38701/the-menil-collection-to-return-byzantine-frescoes-to-greek-orthodox-church/ The frescoes were restored by Dominique de Menil, but were then found to have been stolen. She offered to return them to their rightful owner, the Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus, but the Church allowed them to be on loan to the Menil Collection. According to the Menil's website, these pieces are "the only intact Byzantine frescoes of this size and importance in the Western Hemisphere." I have hope that the Menil's directors will create something equally awesome for this space in the future.
  18. Does anyone know what is going into the empty space between TARGET and TJ MAXX in Cypress Towne Center? (290 & Spring Cypress, south side of the freeway.) Also, something is going in between IHOP and Shipley's.
  19. HEB has land purchased for its 4th Cypress area location. The store will be built on the northwest corner of Spring Cypress and Grant Rd. The site is adjacent to a Cy Fair ISD elementary school. The store will be 99,000 square feet. The store will be a full functioning HEB, which means it will feature a pharmacy, gas station, full service bakery, deli, meat and fish market, beer and wine section and a healthy living department. No word yet on if the store will have a Café on the Run which is the HEB restaurant in some stores. Construction will start early 2014. HEB has its Cypress and Fairfield Markets off of 290 as well as the Jones and West store in the Cy Fair area.
  20. Excited to see one of my all-time favorite Houston area restaurants opening up out here! Churrasco's will open a new restaurant next to P.F. Chang's on 249: http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/breaking-ground/2014/07/churrascos-to-open-fifth-houston-area-location.html
  21. Curious about the work being done on Huffmeister near Kluge (between White Oak Lake Estates and Lake Cypress Estates). It appears a new neighborhood is being built on this heavily wooded tract that backs up to Little Cypress Creek. From the development plan it looks like it'll have 2 lakes (11.3 acres of detention) surrounded by roughly 144 homesites on 73.4 acres. The developer has an opportunity to create something very nice if they do like Longwood and retain as much of the beautiful tree canopy as possible. There aren't many wooded tracts like this left in Cypress and it would differentiate it nicely from the endless sea of homes being built on the open Katy Prairie (south of Hwy 290) if they kept the wooded feel. It's also one of the few remaining tracts located within one of the best K-12 feeder patterns in Harris County. I know a lot of families (including my own) that would like to move up into larger, newer homes and stay within the Hamilton El., Hamilton Middle, Cy-Fair HS school zone. Looking forward to seeing what they'll have to offer here. Link to Development Plan for Alden Woods in Cypress Link to Google Maps
  22. Today some land surveyors were surveying the empty lot next to Gringos with a sign for Captial Retail Properties. Not sure how old the flyer is, but it shows a Cracker Barrel between the soon to be new retail space and Gringos and a Papa's BBQ on the other side of Gringos. Strangely enough it also lists a "proposed" Kroger's a bit further down 290, before Mason and "Memorial Herman", presumably taking the Fairfield Driving Range's lot. http://capitalretailproperties.com/brochures/Mueschke.pdf
