  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. 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:
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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 w
  7. Found some new renderings for the Towne Lake Boardwalk restaurant, retail and entertainment development near Barker Cypress & Tuckerton:
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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. Susque
  12. 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.
  13. 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 Fairfiel
  14. 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
  15. 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 differenti
  16. 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
  17. Page 17 from the link below shows this: http://www.simon.com/mall/LeasingSheet/Grand1206.pdf I looked this project up and found these old articles about it: Katy Mills sues to halt competitor HOUSTON PREMIUM OUTLET Apparently they where going to build this along time ago near Katy Mills, Now its going up next to another new project Called Fairfield Town Center.
  18. Anyone know a timetable for the Spring Cypress widening project between 290 and Huffmeister? I know that alot of trees were cleared a few months ago, but nothing has happened since. Anyone have any insight?
  19. Since there's really no right or wrong answer here. Based on your perception, what is your geographic definition of Cypress? Some believe its everything in CFISD. Some believe its everything between Hwy 249 and FM 529 bounded by FM 1960 on out to Hockley. Some believe its the area between 249 and 290 bounded by FM 1960 on out to 2920. Some believe its the area right around Spring Cypress and 290, stretching back towards Grant Rd. Some believe its the 77429 and 77433 zip codes. It goes on. What is your geographic definition of Cypress?
  20. Looks like there are some plans for the old retail strip center near 249 and Spring Cypress. http://www.springcypressvillage.com/
  21. I went exploring the other day and I didn't realize how nice it was back there in the backroads off Grant Rd and Cypress Rosehill. Miles and miles of wooded estate-size lots (mostly 1-10 acre) with big palacial custom homes, mini horse farms, there's even a fly-in/fly-out and a waterski lake neighborhood. Lots of tree-lined winding roads, pastures and forests. I like the idea of having a large enough lot that you don't necessarily have to see your neighbors. It's really nice back there, peaceful.
  22. Tarantino Properties purchased the old K-Mart Store at 310 FM 1960 West. The store was in the same shopping strip as Kroger, Babies R Us, Office Max, and Comp USA. The Company is remodeling the old anchor store. It will be split into 11 suites that total 97,080 square feet in all. The new Shops at Cypress Shopping Center
  23. July 20, 2006, 5:04PM Concerns put UH's satellite on back burner Lawmakers and neighbor schools question need for northwest campus By MATTHEW TRESAUGUE Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle The University of Houston has been forced to delay plans for a satellite campus in the growing northwest suburbs because of concerns that the new competition could cripple neighboring universities. The proposed campus would provide upper-level and graduate courses on property now owned by Hewlett-Packard Corp., with a projected enrollment of more than 5,000 students by 2012. The university has agreed to buy the
