  1. 5-story multifamily apartments, leasing and tenant amenities with associated 7-story parking garage. Address is 816 Addicks-Howell Road.
  2. This is all I could find on this story -- a post on Kroger's Facebook page, but it is only so obvious what is going on here: https://www.facebook.com/Kroger/posts/10151531060113218 Now if Facebook is not your cup of tea, let me tell it like it is: The cutthroat supermarket competition, a glut of traditional Krogers (three newer, nicer stores surrounding it) and other factors beyond its control proved to be too much for the Rubik's Kroger, which I call it because it kept its 80s-era, graphing paper-esque decor well into the 2000s before a low-grade renovation. To that extent, the store is now winding down operations, and this is sure to become an economic hot potato in the SL. Not just because of the jobs (even if they were mostly minimum wage or less), but also a certain five-letter word that has been the bane of many a suburbanite. As for myself personally, as ubiquitous as it may sound, another relic of my childhood is fading into oblivion. I have been familiar with the store since I moved here as a toddler and as much as progress is a beautiful thing, replacing that space will surely be a challenge and the Settlers Way area of First Colony will never be the same. While I am not going to speculate, I would place my bets on HMart (or another large Asian grocery store for that matter) taking over. Have yet to see something from the TDLR, but the last thing the good people of First Colony need is something below-grade moving in there.
  3. NewQuest Readies Plans For Mo. City Shopping Center Houston developer NewQuest Properties is planning to build a new shopping center near State Highway 6 and the Fort Bend Parkway in Missouri City. Called Fort Bend Town Center, the project would be built in two phases. Phase one includes about 40 acres at the southwest corner of Highway 6 and the parkway. This phase is planned as a 160,000- square-foot retail center with a grocery store as an anchor. Phase 2, at the southeast corner of the intersection, would be about 400,000 square feet. The rest of the story can be found here.
  4. Since clearing the trees at W Little York and Hwy 6 an old home, that sits on the banks of the bayou, was exposed, and I was hoping someone here may be able to shed some light on it. It looks to be at least 75 to 80 years old.
  5. Rumor has it that Dallas based Sewell Motors is going to open up a new Mercedes-Benz dealership near Katy. It would be the seventh Mercedes-Benz dealership in the area (eighth if you count the Beaumont dealer). I was told that it would be on the site of an abandoned Walmart, but there's no abandoned Walmart on I-10 in Katy. However, there IS an abandoned Sam's Club at I-10 and Highway 6. HCAD shows that it's owned by LWA Properties LLC in Dallas as of January 2014. I checked the ownership of Sewell Cadillac a few miles down the highway and it's owned by Sewell 10 LLC, which has the same address as LWA Properties LLC. I just don't know when they plan to open or if they've started construction since it's been months since I've been on that side of town. Anyone know anything?
  6. I don't know the location for this one. http://www.meekspartners.com/energy-core-apartments?c=T24tVGhlLUJvYXJkcw==
  7. Any ideas about what will replace the SAMs on the NW side of hwy6 and I 10?
  8. Does anyone have any information regarding this? I can't find any information anywhere. Looks like both sides of HW 6 are being cleared for new subdivisions. It's just passed CR 147.

  10. The Old house on 1960 @ West Little York Rd. This is THE largest private residence in all of the area. A single family house with almost 9,000 sq ft. (8,989 Sq.Ft) with a tract of land of over 2,829,222 Sq. Ft. plus a 80+ acre tract of land adjacent to it. I actually had my camera that same weekend, and on Saturday (3/19), ventured INTO the property to take as many pictures as possible. BEAUTIFUL huge house, constructed in 1940, HUGE: 8,989 sq. ft. house, two stories, 6 bedrooms, 6 full baths, 2 half baths, 3 rec. rooms, 3 fireplaces, Gunite pool. A very interesting place. mounted on some sort of platform (flood risk, since it sits just feet from the river), the house seemed to be without electricity, but a generator was running. It seems to be in use, with hanging planters and flower pots on all the fabulous porch area (over 100 ft. long !!!). The house has a "Plantation" type look. You can see dim lights at night if you drive thru West Little York. Great trees all around. Lots of old trees, but you know that could be gone anytime now in favor of some sort of shopping center. (sounds familiar? Remember the VERY old Oak on the corner of Clay and Highway 6? GONE...now in it's place, a "Darke Tan sign" As soon as I have those pictures available will try and post. Current owners of the whole 80+acres are listed per HCAD (Appraisal district) records as: "Blue Sky Ly properties, LLC", but no mention of actual owners even in "ownership history" section. I am very interested in knowing the history behind such farm house. It was the center of a large cattle ranch/farm operation that covered the whole area from FM 529 road, south to West Little York Rd. and as far back as Barker Cypress Rd. Quite a large property. It is not that "old" or historical(built 1940), but its looks and size give it an air of old-time style. We can only imagine the lifestyle then and there. To bad "progess" is taking over such places.
  11. Any news on what developments are slated to fill the new Imperial Pkwy parcel of land off of Hwy 6?
  12. Not sure if this is the correct forum, so please, redirect me if it isn't. What type of park/development is being developed on the east side of Hwy 6 and Westpark? Is there already a thread for this? I was really jazzed, thinking it was a park, until they mowed down like 3 or 4 really big oak trees. Now I am confused and a bit angry. Any thoughts?
  13. Designed by HKS. From the HBJ: http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/breaking-ground/2012/06/atwood-oceanics-kick-starts-office.html?ana=e_du_pub&s=article_du&ed=2012-06-21 Looks like this will finally get started with construction in August, 2012.
  14. I am truly fustrated at the nonstop traffic on Highway 6. I live in Sugar Land and used to live in Northwest Houston and worked on the westside so I'm very familiar with the headache that is Hwy 6 and FM 1960. Will there ever be a solution to that corridor. Maybe they could widen Eldridge on the westside. The new medians from Memorial @ Hwy 6 to Fort Bend County have done little to ease traffic. I was thinking of a connecting Baker-Cypress to FM 1464 (Clodine Rd.). They have just finish completion of widening 1464 road in Fort Bend County. There would definitely be an issue with the environmental impact of going through George Bush park. The ground might not even support a road going through there, but there is a small dirt road/ bike trail that connects the two. Not to mention the flooding in that area. I don't know what the solution to the traffic problem but something has to be done or we are all going to have road rage and go crazy !
  15. For those of you who are on the hunt for old abandoned bridges, I located one earlier this year within the confines of the Addicks Reservoir, directly along the western shoulder of the elevated portion of SH-6 that runs through the reservoir. The bridge is in two sections, a north and a south section, crossing over South Mayde Creek. Before SH-6 was built at an elevated height through the reservoir (circa 1968), the road was a simple asphalt road which sat at ground level, and was known only as Addicks-Satsuma Rd. There was a slight bend in the road near South Mayde Creek which was eliminated in the new SH-6 elevated stretch, but today, the old bend can still be found, as it is home to these two sections of old bridge. Due to a lack of detailed information on the road, I can only assume these bridges, which were constructed in the late 1950's, were replacements for earlier wooden bridges. Addicks-Satsuma Rd. dates way back to the beginning of the 20th century, so there had to be something there to cross the creek. These two sections of abandoned bridge are somewhat modern in design, with concrete and steel on the deck surface, and a wooden substructure that has remained relatively intact to this day. Unfortunately, these new bridges only served for about ten years or so before SH-6 was elevated, and this bend in the road was bypassed altogether. Some forty years after being abandoned, these two bridge sections remain, nestled about 10 feet below the sidewall of SH-6 on the west side, just a few hundred paces from the dam itself. The south bridge is in much better shape, and you can still explore underneath it. There is a large amount of old discarded beer cans and tires from the 1970's scattered around. There are also ruins of what appeared to be some concrete culverts or possibly stability points for some type of superstructure. The north bridge, which is all the way on the other side of the creek, is much harder to spot, as it has been almost completely engulfed by topsoil, and the side rails are all gone. On either side of the bridge, you may also notice a metal gate. This pair of gates used to open and close as needed to prevent drivers from crossing the bridge during floods. Now, they are just ghostly reminders of what used to be. I have pictures but cannot figure out URL codes, nor do I care to. If you visit my webpage, you can view over a dozen photos of the bridges. www.westhoustonarchives.org , and go to the abandoned roads page. The bridges are listed alphabetically after Addicks Clodine Rd, and Addicks- Fairbanks Rd.
  16. Starting Monday, August 22, Missouri City residents will have another option to get to the Texas Medical Center, or downtown Houston, onboard a METRO Park & Ride bus. The new service – an extension of the existing route 170 - will operate from a temporary site located at the Kroger parking lot on State Highway 6 at Knight Road. WHERE: 10250 State Highway 6 at Knight Road “This is especially good news to the hundreds of TMC employees who live in Missouri City and are looking for a stress-free commute that is also easy on the wallet,” said METRO President & CEO George Greanias. “Our partners in this – Missouri City, Fort Bend County, the TMC, NewQuest and Kroger – champion our mission of providing better service to the community, and the new lot is an example of how we’re taking steps to improve mobility.” Route 170 now has three stops on its schedule, with the first bus rolling out at 5:06 a.m. from the new location on State Highway 6 at Knight Road, on to the existing Park & Ride lot at Fondren and Beltway 8, and the final destination, the Texas Medical Center, with an easy connection to the Red Line.
  17. I was looking in the Savannah Community off Highway 6 and looked at the mortgage calculator for a home I liked....The range was around $270K or so. Am I correct that taxes for homes in that range are nearly $800 a month or more? Is it because its Rosharon? Brazoria County? As for homebuilders, I was looking in Southfork and ran across this home builder named Cervelle Homes....I noticed these homes have the same amount of square footage and more garage space than alot of the higher priced homes in the area but for a cheaper price. Are these homes of good quality?
  18. Houston's first Carl's Jr. is almost complete. Highway 6 and West Road next to Shell.
  19. There's been land cleared for quite some time now (over 6 months) on the south side of 290/west of Hwy. 6, next to the Hampton Inn/Shell corner. Any idea what's going in there?
  20. The land was cleared within the last couple of weeks and dirt work continues. Anyone know what's going on here?
  21. Does anyone have any experience or reviews of Track 21 ? I know that the location is not really in Katy, but it is near - Hwy 6 between Clay and W. Little York. We may celebrate a birthday there (9yr. old) and wanted to know if it was safe, clean etc... Thanks.
  22. I remember an old gas station at the corner of Wellborn and Highway 6, but it was torn down when they began the expansion project. I remember it had several pumps. What was the name of it? Anyone know?
  23. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/nb/fortbend/news/5756506.html Sienna Plantation town center proposed In other business Monday, the council approved a finance plan for a tax increment reinvestment zone aimed at jump-starting a $306 million "lifestyle center" development near Texas 6 and Sienna Parkway. Sienna Plantation Lifestyle District is promising a town center development with shops, restaurants, condos, offices and entertainment venues on land that is now mostly undeveloped. Hawes estimated the city will take in an additional $76 million in sales-tax revenue when the town center development is complete. The Sienna TIRZ is a good deal for taxpayers, said Mayor Allen Owen. "They're a great way for us to build the city. The taxpayers don't pay a dime. That's the beauty of it."
  24. Candeleri's Pizza opened this weekend in the shopping center off 290 and Spring Cypress, near Newk's and McAllisters, and a new pizza place is also coming near the Chipotle on 290 and hwy 6. http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto...6936000^1613220
