  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Has anyone heard if there might be an HEB coming to that area anytime soon? Grocery shopping out there sucks and I hate driving down the beltway to go to HEB. Thanks

  5. 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
  6. I was looking at a listing on HAR for this gated community and noticed several others as well. Why are there so many homes for sales in this community? Is there something I don't know about?
  7. I just read this story about the landfill west of Shadow Creek Ranch. My wife and I were looking hard at moving down to Shadow Creek Ranch. We love the houses and community amenities. But that story about the landfill gives me pause. Do you folks think the landfill will cause problems in terms of sewage leakage, odor, and property devaluation? Thanks!
  8. I am thinking of purchasing a home there but I have a few questions for those who live there. I drove around the neighborhood and found everyone putting bags of trash on the curb. -Why are there no bins for each house? Will you get them soon? Also, the neighborhood I am looking at is in the flood plain. It worries me a little bit. I've read that the detention ponds and the lakes provide relief from the threat of flooding but I drove through during the major storm we had this week and there were 2-3 areas where the water was so high, making the roads inside SCR impassable. -Should I be worried concerning potential flooding? Any other feedback on SCR would be greatly appreciated. This is our first home and I am really scared about getting screwed over...
  9. I've recently been told by a builder that FBISD and AISD are in talks and Alvin is trying to get all of SCR to their district. Anyone know anything on this or has this been going on for a while and continue to just be speculation. I am just nervous of the schools on the Fort Bend Side. Am I overreacting to all of this? I would think in 10+ years a new high school will be available. Willowridge as it stands has subpar dropout rates, ect. This is a make or break deal for moving to SCR (Arbor Lakes). Any help would be great.
  10. Robert Stanton posted an update on this project at his Inside Pearland blog today. I will repost it below for our HAIF archives. Shadowcreek Ranch could soon be home to mega sports complex. It's by no means a done deal, but city officials seem to have a consensus on their support of a deal that could bring a major sports complex to the Shadow Creek Ranch area. Here's how the proposed deal would work: USA Partners Sports Alliance, a Florida-based consulting firm, is working to secure sponsorships from Fortune 500 companies to support national youth sporting events at a city owned, 30-acre park west of Kingsley and north of Shadow Creek Parkway. To ensure that the park is available for local residents to use, the city would require an operating agreement with the alliance specifying the number of games and weekends they would be held, City Manager Bill Eisen said. Pearland voters last May approved a $162 million bond package that includes $8 million for a sports facility, but the funding would not be available until 2010, city officials said. Revenues from the sponsorships, as well as from deals with hotels and national sports organizations, would allow the sports alliance to pay the debt service on the city's bonds, Eisen said. USA Sports Alliance officials said they could start construction on the park within 60 to 90 days to expand it to 12 fields, as well as an indoor sports facility for volleyball and basketball. City Council signed a $250,000 contract with the firm in May to keep the process rolling. Council is expected to vote on a formal resolution supporting the proposal at its Sept. 8 meeting. While City Council is open to the idea of a major sports complex in the city that would draw national youth teams from across the nation, many shopping at stores and staying at Pearland hotels say they aren't completely sold yet. Council agreed to have a third-party financial consultant review the proposal before any decision is made. Here's what Councilwoman Felicia Cole said at Monday night's Council meeting: The concept is unique, but the structure behind it is not very clear right now. There's too many 'what's' and 'ifs.' The question is, how much risk is the city getting, versus (the risk to) USA Partners.
  11. I've been tracking developments in phases 3 and 4 (western side) of Shadowcreek Ranch for about 2 years now, as I hunted for a home. Based on what I've observed and on various ancedotal evidence I've read, I believe these final phases of SCR are in a real state of lethargy. It's kind of strange because the developers are still putting in the infrastructure (parks, roads, brick walls), but not that many new homes are being built. And some builders are cutting back. For example, 6 months ago I was talking to a Newmark sales agent in the Arbor Lakes subdivision. She said things were fine, but I hadn't seen any new lots sold in about 3 months. Now last weekend I drive through Arbor Lakes and I see Newmark has sold all their lots to Ryland. Guess things weren't going so great after all. It also looks like some of the other new sections: Copper Creek, Windy Shores, West Haven, Lake Meadows are seeing very slow lot sales. Anyone else have any observations or comments about these final phases of Shadowcreek?
  12. Anyone know what catastrophe designation Shadow Creek Ranch has as far as windstorm requirements go? I have loooked on the state's website, and it lists Pearland as an "Inland II", but the map doesn't include SCR. The reason I ask is because after 2 years in my house in SCR, my mortgage company is now all of a sudden requiring me to have windstorm insurance, on top of my regular hazard insurance. The mortgage company is claiming I am in a "high risk coastal area", and due to recent events (katrina & rita) they are requiring their customers in these high risk areas to be covered, but no one can give me clarification on how they determine that. My thinking is that they are doing it by county, and I think that if I lived in southern harris county, rather than northern brazoria, they wouldn't require it. Anyone else have this issue? Also, I'm curious to see how many others in SCR do have wind and storm. Am I crazy for not having it? USAA has qouted around $1200 per yr through the windstorm pool, where as my mortgage company is saying they will get lender placed insurance for $4600. For those of you who do have it, is your coverage amount the full value of the home & contents, ie, total loss, or do you just have a portion covered, thinking that you will likely only have roof damage, not total loss. Thanks for any info you all can give. Brad

  14. Anyone have good suggestions for a cell phone carrier in Shadow Creek Ranch? We've recently moved into Shadow Creek Ranch and have discovered that our AT&T cell phones are completely unreliable. Our service gets much better once we leave the neighborhood. We're considering switching to verizon or t-mobile, though we're thinking that one possibility is that we're in a dead zone. Anyone else experience horrible cell phone service along biscayne bay neighborhoods? Thanks for any info!
  15. We are thinking of buying in SCR Arbor Lakes. Schools are an issue and we realize this subdivision is zoned to FBISD. We're not too excited about our two kids going to those schools. Does anyone know if this will change or if we can apply for a transfer to Alvin? Also, if anyone knows what the elementary and middle schools are like please share. Please share any info you know. Thanks

  17. Shadow Creek Ranch announced where the Fort Bend ISD neighborhoods are zoned. SCR in Fort Bend County is zoned to Willowridge HS, McAuliffe MS, and Blue Ridge ES. All three schools are in Houston. SCR states this here: http://www.shadowcreekranch.net/education/e_defaultfs.html In 2005 it was announced that FBISD residents could send their kids to Marek ES (on the Brazoria County side in Alvin ISD) until FBISD builds new schools. So far FBISD has not built schools for the FBISD part of SCR http://www.thefacts.com/story.lasso?ewcd=93cbae23a45c958b
  18. Does anyone know what exaclty is going to happen on the NW corner of 518 and Kirby in Shadow Creek Ranch ? IOW, the land between LakeSide Terrace (an SCR subdivision) and FM 518 off Kirby. In the SCR map it says "Kirby Commons" but what exactly is it ? Somewhere I read a Wal-greens is coming at SW corner of 518 and Kirby but no news about what would happen on the NW corner ? I drove on Kirby last weekend, but there were no signs of any construction or anything there. Any info guys ?
  19. It looks like I will be moving to the Houston area from Boston come summer 2007, and will be working at the medical center. We've been looking primarily at Pearland, and in particular, the Silverlake/silvercreek and Shadow Creek Ranch areas. I have a 7 year old, so schools are important. I was wondering what locals viewed as the major differences between the two areas. It looks like silverlake has the edge in schools, as the kids all go to local pearland schools, not Alvin or Manvil like SCR. It also looks like Silverlake is a more mature neighboorhood, with SCR still developing. Are there other things we should consider that are important -- what are the tax rates of the two areas in terms of property taxes. Also, what is the average HOA fees for the two areas? Finally, I see MUD disclosure alot with looking at the HAR housing site. Can someone explain this in detail. I appreciate any help local residents can offer. Thanks.
  20. I've seen some posts talking about tax rates in SCR being over 4% and then reduced to 3.8%. I've lived here over two years, here are my actual effective rates. Appraised Value / Taxes Due: 2005: 3.8% 2006: 3.5% (2.94% w/o the MUD) Does not include the homeowner's association dues.
  21. I passed by Shadow Creek Ranch today because my friend bought a new house out there. Along McHard there are several signs that say new retail coming soon, new townhomes coming soon and etc. We are talking about really mixed in with the rest of the neighborhood. So tell me something. Does anybody know if this will be just regular strip malls and townhomes that you see around 518, or will it develop like the Woodlands and Sugar Land with new urbanism projects? I'm telling you, suburbs are getting more attractive these days such as the Woodlands and Sugar Land. I hate to be one of the people that takes away from the inner city population by moving to the suburbs, but it is getting really tempting.
  22. 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.
