  1. Kelsey-Seybold putting down roots in Pearland Next courtesy Kelsey-Seybold Kelsey-Seybold putting down roots in Pearland Spencer R. Berthelsen, M.D., F.A.C.P., Chairman of the Board and Managing Director of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic (left) and Pearland Mayor Tom Reid. Posted: Friday, June 29, 2012 2:29 pm By JIM MOLONY Construction has started on Kelsey-Seybold’s new administration building at an 18-acre site at the northeast corner of Kirby Drive and Shadow Creek Parkway in Pearland. City and Kelsey-Seybold officials were on site last Wednesday for the official ground breaking on the $21 million project, which will include a 170,000 square feet building and eventually mean 800-1,200 jobs in Pearland. “We’re excited to be moving our administrative offices here,” Spencer R. Berthelsen, M.D., F.A.C.P. Chairman of the Board and Managing DirectorKelsey-Seybold Clinic, told The Journal. “I think Pearland is a very good fit for us, a lot of our employees already live in the area and we have a lot of patients that live out here.” Mayor Tom Reid welcomed Kelsey-Seybold officials to the community. “I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for Pearland to have a world renowned medical association like Kelsey-Seybold in the community,” Reid said. “I am delighted to have them here in Pearland. “I’ve been a long-time admirer of Kelsey-Seybold. I met Dr. Seybold many years ago and as we both served in the military around the same time we shared stories of that. It’s a pleasure to see the firm that he started coming to Pearland, it’s a great thing for our city.” The facility is expected to be completed during the summer of 2013. Kelsey-Seybold officials cited geographic location, a talented pool of workers locally and the efforts of the city to work with the firm on the project among the reasons Pearland was selected. “Mayor Tom Reid and (City Manager) Bill Eisen have been very proactive in helping bring this project along and I want to thank them as well as the people of Pearland,” Berthelsen said. “They made it very easy for us to be a part of the community.” The facility, which will have entrances in the 11500 block of Shadow Creek Parkway (across from Nolan Ryan Junior High) and on Kirby Drive, backs up against a wooded area and will have ample parking. “We wanted to take advantage of the natural landscaping,” Ro explained. The new administrative offices will support Kelsey-Seybold’s 370 physicians providing primary care and specialty care at 20 clinic locations throughout the region, including two already in operation in Pearland. “Initially this will hold 800 employees with a capacity for 1,200,” Kelsey-Seybold’s Nicholas Ro said. The facility was designed by Powers Brown Architecture and is being built by E.E. Reed Construction, L.P. TGB Crosswell, formerly CG Commercial Development, developed the property and coordinated the sale with CG-Shadow Creek Ranch Village, L.P., owner of the Shadow Creek Ranch commercial site. TGB Crosswell Managing Partners Allen Crosswell and Tod Greenwood, and Director of Construction Stan Beard, worked on the sale. Thad Armstrong of Thompson & Knight LLP provided legal representation for Kelsey-Seybold on all aspects of the project.
  2. http://www.ultimatep...parkway-project Hearing set on proposed Shadow Creek Parkway project November 10, 2009 9:14 pmPearland Road W... wrote:A hearing is scheduled Nov. 18 on the proposed four-laning of Shadow Creek Parkway from FM 521 on the Fort Bend County line to Texas 288. The project for the road, designated by the state as FM 2234, is critical for growing Shadow Creek Ranch, said Larry Heckathorn, the area engineer for the Texas Department of Transportation. "The road we have out there isn't able to carry traffic the way it should," Heckathorn said. The proposed four-lane concrete highway with raised medians "will be a great improvement over what's out there," he said. The TxDOT-sponsored meeting at Mary Marek Elementary School, 1947 Kirby Drive, will include an open house at 6 p.m. in which project planners will be available to answer questions. At 7 p.m. a formal public meeting will involve discussion of potential environmental, economic and social effects of widening the road, which is designated by the state as FM 2234. All essential right of way for the work has been acquired, and the project is designed, Heckathorn said. But there's the matter of funding. "Right now, we're very tight on funds," Heckathorn said. "We're hopeful that funds may become available to go ahead and take bids on it and build it." During the public hearing, residents are given three minutes to speak. Minor changes could still be made to the project if needed, Heckathorn said. Visitors also can complete comment forms at the meeting. Those forms should be postmarked by Dec. 4 and sent to: Director of Project Development, Texas Department of Transportation, P.O. Box 1386, Houston TX 77251-1386
  3. I think this was mentioned before, but the development on 288/FM2234(S.C. Parkway) that is being anchored by Kroger will have a Starbuck's, Luby's, and a Cracker Barrel. Do folks like Cracker Barrel? It sounds so "country" to me. See link for site plan: http://www.gulfcoastcg.com/gulfcoastcg/doc...Marketplace.pdf
  4. I drove thru FM 2234 yesterday and saw all those projects going on in SCR - hotel, schools shopping strips, apartments. Many of them are nearing completion. But the road is still a single lane. Won't that road be another headache by Fall? I know that Fort Bend has a plan to expand it from FM 521 to Fort Bend tollway. Is there any such plans for the other stretch to 288?
  5. I am probably not the only one to notice this, but for all you folks driving on the new stretch of Kirby Drive between 2234 (Shadowcreek parkway) and the Sam Houston tollway - be careful! The posted limit is only 35mph, but with no stops and no development along that stretch (yet), it's easy to go 50mph+. And that is where the danger comes in, because almost every time I've driven through there I've seen a cop either giving a speeding ticket, or parked and set to pounce on an unwary driver. This stretch could qualify as a speed trap, at least to my mind, so be careful folks.

  7. I bought a house in Shadow Creek Ranch. It's quite close to the FM 2234 and FM 521 intersection. I've been there numerous times but I haven't seen any trains pass by the railroad crossing in that area yet. Anyway, I'm somewhat concerned about train noises (whistles & track rumblings). Does anyone know how frequent does the train runs at night? Thanks.
