  1. Fresh from the rumor mill: It is my understanding that the shopping strip where Popeye's, Crabby Daddy's and others will be torn down in 2015 to make way for a high rise. How do I know this? Well, my aunt got to chit chatting with one of the owners of a business in that strip center and they said that they were going to be moving soon to a new location because the landlord of that strip center is no longer signing long-term leases. They, the businesses, were notified a few weeks back that the center will be razed and replaced with a high rise office building. I have nothing more on this but upon hearing it I had two immediate thoughts. 1: it couldn't be in a more awkward spot. 2. Traffic is already horrendous at the 45/Rayford intersection. It'll be a total cluster in that area if this is true. Seems like such a strange spot for a tower, yes?
  2. There is substantial clearing and site prep on the north side of FM1488 just west of the Valero gas station and south of the motocross park. Have not seen signs indicating the project. Anyone have an idea of what will be built there?
  3. Does anyone know what is going in on the 50 acre tract at FM 1488/Old Conroe? They recently cleared this tract as well as the other 20 acre tract just to the west of it on FM 1488 as well. They were both for sale by Cypressbrook. Thanks!
  4. What is being built in front of the Grace Crossing Church on the southwest corner of I-45 and FM-1488? Big construction site but no signage.
  5. Construction crews are clearing the future Kuykendahl Road south from where it intersects with FM1488. Good news for The Woodlands northerners.
  6. I have heard a rumor going around that now they are going to build a Super Target across from the New Walmart on FM 2978. Has anyone heard of this or has knowledge of it? I would have been fine with only a Super Target, but doing a Walmart and a Target this close to our house has us very concerned. If its true, I truly think we will sell. I am very sad about what has happened to what we thought the Woodlands would be.
  7. I drove up to a wedding in Magnolia this weekend. At the intersection of 1488 and 1774, two police officers that I assumed were Magnolia policemen (turned out to be Waller Co SD - see rest of thread) were directing traffic when I came upon the intersection at about 3:15 Saturday afternoon. As I waited for my turn, I watched the two cops make obnoxious and/or vaguely menacing gestures at several motorists who were doing their best to follow the cops' vague hand directions. As I waited, my wife reread our directions and said we should be turning left instead of right. There was no one behind me, so I moved over into the left turn lane. We waited a couple more minutes for our turn to go, and when the cop turned and directed to me it was my turn, he shouted "try find the right side of the road!" Police officers have a difficult job - they have to keep their cool and avoid the temptation to use excessive force when subduing criminals who are screaming and cursing at them, and trying to hurt or kill them. If a cop can't be courteous to law-abiding citizens who are doing their best to follow his directions, if he can't hold his tongue and refrain from making obnoxious gestures and comments at them, I doubt he is going to control his attitude with people in emotionaly charged or more dangerous situations. Jerk cops like this aren't just making things tougher for the people they are supposed to server - they are also reinforcing the stereotype many people have about cops as heavy-handed thugs. With the lower-income racial minorities who feel often unfairly targeted and profiled by cops, jerk cops like these reinforce the stereotype of cops as not to be trusted, not to be cooperated with, and even make people feel more justified in returning violence to cops who may be pursuing them. Basically, cops like these are contributing to getting other cops killed.
