  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.

  10. A recent arcticle on another lifestyle center in Pearland! http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto.../10/story5.html
  11. Does anyone know what they've recently broke ground on at the northeast corner of Cullen and McHard in Pearland? They've cleared a lot of the land and have already marked off the area with tagged wooden stakes. I saw no signage of anything "Coming soon" and I was unable to take a picture as I was driving through the intersection on my way to work. Here's a map of the area (in yellow) where the construction is happening. Any ideas?

  13. http://www.houstonch...ide-5979111.php This is big news. The same bus service that is used for league city to Galveston will provide pearland to medical center (downtown?). Once the HOT lanes are built it will be a quick way for residents to get in the city.

  15. I saw this today in the Houston Business Journal. Some of the space next to SH 288 will finally get filled in. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/breaking-ground/2014/10/large-track-in-growing-suburb-set-for-development.html
  16. I saw today that The Parks at Boulder Creek has started moving a lot of earth and excavating for foundations for the midrises planned. This is the lifestyle center for Beltway 8 and Pearland Parkway and it should be Woodlands Town Center/Market Street-like in its scope. The plan calls for: Midrise office towers (8-10 stories) 300 acre park Upscale shopping (Williams-Sonoma, Virgin, Banana Republic, Restoration are a few names that I've heard tossed around) Townhouses Lofts Restaurants a small waterway (i've heard) Discreet parking in garages and backs of property. This is planned for both sides of Pearland Parkway and looks huge in scope. It is not a Big-box power center. Rather, it seems to be a real attempt to make Pearland a destination living, shopping, entertainment area, away from the 518/288 mess, that has gotten a little out of hand. This one looks to be quite well conceived and interesting. Go Pearland!
  17. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Pearland-gets-a-heads-up-on-development-project-5319706.php#/0 The article goes on to relate from David Addicks: . . . . the 6 busts are back at his studio. . . . he didn't know if they would be used in the new development. . . . .
  18. Are these the same heads that a man from Houston is building? He's right by the new Target on I-10 and Sawyer. http://chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/4686544.html
  19. Has anyone been following the goings on @ Pearland City Council regarding proposed HEB @ Pearland Pkwy & 518? HEB goes before council tonight for the umpteenth time. Why does HEB need to scrap the PD in place and get a general business zoning designation? The exsisting PD allows for a grocery store at that site. Plan and simple, if HEB wants to build a store at that site today they could go forward immediately with permitting process. It seems that HEB wants to circumvent the rules the city has in place so they can do things "their" way. Pearland Planning and Zoning sent this project to City Council with a unamious vote of 5-0 to turn down this zone change stating that - PNZ has spent time and $ creating the PD so developers & retailers who come to this location adhere to certain guidelines, architecture controls, green space, setbacks.... We are not voting against HEB - we simply want them to play by the rules that are currently in place to ensure this last major undeveloped corner in the City of Pearland is developed in a manner that will serve the city for generations rather than a grocer on the hard corner in the short term.- So what happens if HEB buys the +/- 23 acres on the hard corner and does not build a store at that location. Or, if they buy the land and build a store in say 2, 5, 10 years down the road? The whole tract & the future increased ad valorem tax generation is at the mercy of HEB and their internal timeline - This is not in the best interest of the City of Pearland. This issue seems to be lost on those who have not delved more than skin deep on this issue. No one is saying we do not want HEB. To the contrary most all interaction @ City Council starts with the disclaimer "This is not a vote against HEB.... and then an ensuing argument of why the PD is in place and why it should remain in place" In fact that is correct. No one is voting "against" HEB. They are voting for City Council to enforce the current regulations that are in place to protect the best interest of the citizens of Pearland. I guess we will read about it tomorrow.

  21. Sucks for Pearland, but METRO's viewpoint makes sense. If suburbs are going to keep voting against initiatives they shouldn't get any money, especially if they don't even pay into the system.
  22. HCA Gulf Coast Division Announces $71 Million Plan To Build Pearland Medical Center Specialties in Pediatrics, Women’s Services, Emergency Care and Cardiovascular Health Planned to Meet Needs of Growing Community Houston, TX, October 30, 2012―HCA Gulf Coast Division announced today that it is building a 30-bed, acute care hospital in Pearland at the southwest intersection of Highway 288 and County Road 2234 (Shadow Creek Parkway). Pearland Medical Center will be built on the 48-acre site that is currently home to a full-service, freestanding 24-hour emergency department, imaging center and a 3-story, 80,000 square-foot medical office building. “We are excited to expand our presence in Pearland with a state of the art hospital that will allow the citizens of that community to receive quality healthcare close to home,” said Maura Walsh, President of HCA Gulf Coast Division. Pearland Medical Center will be a 144,000 square-foot, $71 million facility featuring surgical suites, medical/surgical beds, intensive care beds, an emergency department, and an imaging department that will include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), catheterization lab, echocardiogram testing, and nuclear medicine modalities. The hospital’s women’s services will provide digital mammography, labor and delivery suites, cesarean section operating rooms and a newborn nursery. Pearland Medical Center will be designed with the future growth of the community in mind with plans allowing for incremental expansion to meet the needs of the community. “HCA Gulf Coast Division is delivering the right care at the right time to our residents in their own neighborhood,” said Tom Reid, Pearland Mayor. “HCA is fulfilling a need to provide people with highly technological, high quality healthcare within the community.” “Pearland Medical Center will benefit the local economy creating jobs in construction service as well as jobs in healthcare and its supporting industries,” said Matt Buchanan, President of the Pearland Economic Development Corporation. “It’s been a desire of our growing community for several years, and we’re very excited that HCA has chosen this site to build a hospital.” The ground breaking for Pearland Medical Center is scheduled for 2013 with project completion by the end of 2014. http://www.pearlandedc.com/HCA-.aspx
  23. Subjects Queen Park Shadow Meadows Lanes - Bowling Alley The Grocery Store By Queen Park The Burger King in the Queen Park and Shadow Meadow Lane Area I remember my grandfather (my mother's stepfather) taking me to Queen Park, the grocery by the Queen Park, Shadow Meadows Lanes, and the Burger King in the same area. I believe these were located in the Pearland or Pasadena Area. Does anyone remember these places?
  24. Building projects advance in Pearland area By Karen Zurawski Published 11:43 a.m., Tuesday, July 31, 2012 0 Pearland City Council approved amendments to the performance agreements between the city, Pearland Economic Development Corp. and Kelsey-Seybold to add a 60-day extension to the completion deadline. The $36 million project, including land, construction, all equipment and fees, now is on schedule, said Nicholas Ro, Kelsey-Seybold's chief legal and strategic officer, and that means some 800 employees will be moving to new offices in July 2013. The facility can accommodate another 400 employees, and the 18-acre site at Kirby Drive and Shadow Creek Parkway has room for another building and/or parking garage. Kelsey-Seybold started the design process for the facility in 2008, Ro said, but the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers financial services firm and its impact on the economy stalled the project. Confidence in the economy returned in mid-2010 and Kelsey-Seybold restarted its expansion process. As part of the process, the company discovered that more than 60 percent of its employees live in the southern part of the Houston area - including Friendswood, Clear Lake and Pearland. Pearland stood out as a site for the administrative building for a number of reasons, Ro said. "It has great amenities. There's lots of retail and lots of restaurants." The city also offers a great potential for an employee base with a highly educated work force, he said. Other important criteria on Ro's list include affordable housing, great schools, reduced commute times for employees and lower land costs in Pearland compared to some other areas of Houston. Lower land costs in the Pearland area are a definite draw to developers, especially in the last six to eight months, said Brad Lybrand, broker at TGB Crosswell, which was involved in the land deal for Kelsey-Seybold. In December, the company sold land to Sam's Real Estate Business Trust, which is building a 136,000-square-foot Sam's Club on 16.5 acres at Texas 288 and Discovery Bay Drive. The project will include a fuel station. "I think construction crews are working every night till 9 p.m.," said Lybrand, referring to the Sam's Club site. "They're supposed to have a grand opening in mid-October. I understand they're on target to hit that." No timeline exists for TGB's development of a retail center at Discovery Bay Drive and the Texas 288 frontage road nor for five commercial pads adjacent to Sam's Club. As far as tenants, Lybrand said, "We're talking with several groups right now. We'd like to see sit-down restaurants." Behind Sam's Club at 2500 Business Center Drive is a 370-unit apartment complex, Retreat at Shadow Creek Ranch, which is near the 347-unit Discovery at Shadow Creek Ranch. McCann Realty Partners developed both projects. Mark Wood, McCann Realty Partners director of development, said the goal is to open the new complex around Feb. 1. The project will have units with one to three bedrooms, ranging in size from 650 to 1,478 square feet. Preliminary monthly rents are $850 to $1,400. "We love Pearland. "It's been very good for us," said Wood, citing its proximity to the medical center, schools and shopping centers. The second phase of Residences at Pearland Town Center, 11200 Broadway, opened a few months ago adding 172 units to an existing 62. Square footage ranges from 668 to 1,463 and monthly rents from $1,015 to $1,845 in the Sueba USA Corp. developments. The selection of Pearland by Kelsey-Seybold is part of an evolution in development, said Matt Buchanan, president of the Pearland Economic Development Corp. The city experienced tremendous growth in housing first, he said. In "Growth, Pearland Demographic Overview," published by the Pearland EDC, the U.S. census reported the city grew 142 percent to 91,252 between 2000 and 2010. This growth means that Pearland was the 15th fastest-growing city in the United States and the second fastest-growing city in Texas, says the EDC. The overview reports more than 16,000 single-family homes and more than 4,000 multifamily units were built between 2000 and 2010. Retail growth followed the residential growth. In the last four to five years especially, strong retail growth has occurred in the city, he said, and now, companies like Kelsey-Seybold are coming. PEDC encouraged Kelsey-Seybold's move by providing up to $413,000 in assistance for the development of the infrastructure that supports the headquarters facility. Other incentives relate to new jobs created over a 10-year period and 60 percent refunds by the PEDC in the half-percent sales tax and by the city in the 1 percent sales tax over the same time period. And growth continues. Last October, for example, the EDC announced that Utah-based Merit Medical Systems Inc., a global medical device company, would build a research, development and manufacturing facility on 12 acres at 14646 Kirby Drive, just north of Shadow Creek Ranch. The two-story, 118,000-square-foot facility will employ more than 200 employees. "We have a high concentration of medical providers," said Buchanan, adding that the city's proximity to the Texas Medical Center is a factor. "It does seem a natural lure for companies in the medical field - manufacturers and providers of health care and life sciences." The city also is targeting energy companies. Ref-Chem, an engineering firm in the energy field, broke ground in June on 11 acres at Beltway 8 and Tom Bass Parkway, he said, and will have 100 employees. http://www.chron.com...rea-3750181.php
