  2. Riverstone Place Retail Center at 18802 University Blvd in Sugar Land.
  3. Bizjournal article here. Three local developers are joining forces and eliminating property lines to create a massive master-planned development on 4,600 acres of pasture land in League City. McAlister Co., Wynne Jackson/Eland Joint Venture and M. Sherman & Associates Land Development plan to create separate but contiguous residential projects on land they already own along the future Grand Parkway, west of Interstate 45 and north of FM 517. The entire project will include more than 10,000 homes and provide League City with a commercial center, a town center and a light industrial center. .......... The Grand Parkway seems to be spurring sprawl like the Metrorail should spur density. Both are our destiny.
  4. Updates and photos for Sugar Land Town Square will go here.
  5. I've been keeping my eye on the Rubicon Realty page, and it was recently updated with this nugget: "Rubicon continues to work on the Phase IV development at The Crossing at Telfair. The recent execution of a ground Lease with Chuy's Mexican Restaurant has created a buzz in the market recognizing The Crossing at Telfair as one of the premier developments in the greater Houston area." Link: http://rubiconrealty.com/development Chuy's was also discussed during a December meeting of Sugar Land's Planning & Zoning Commission. Sounds like a sticking point was a palapa roof and a neon sign. Link: http://www.sugarlandtx.gov/city_hall/city_secretary/agendas/FY2013/121112pz/4a.pdf Does anybody have any additional info on this? Does "execution of a ground lease" make it a done deal?
  6. The Memorial-Hermann Hospital in Sugarland in being built. There is a rumour that a lot of the staff will transfer from the TMC location to the Sugarland location. Any one have any architecture information on the new facility? We would like to post that information on http://www.sugarlandinfo.net Thanks. Memorial-Hermann Staff
  7. I just found out that the City of Sugarland will begin the process of annexing the surrounding area that will bring the city's population past 110,000 residents. Does any one have any more information on this?
  8. This will be by the Costco in Telfair. http://www.chron.com/business/real-estate/article/Developer-breaks-ground-on-Sugar-Land-office-11731719.php
  9. Here's a rendering I found from PCG now called prismrendering. Its Sabic's new offices in the Sugar Land. http://prismrenderings.com/?s=&custom_type=renderings&custom_market=corporate&post_type=prism_projects&order=DESC&orderby=title&posts_per_page=10&search_refer=prism_projects

  11. I was reading the news and came across this article. Turns out Sugar Land has named one of their park "Memorial Park". I guess they are trying to benefit from the confusion between this one and the real on in Houston. Ugh. Ugh.
  12. Press release Agreement Approved for Future Concert/Performing Arts Venue in Sugar Land Sugar Land, TX – The Sugar Land Development Corporation and Sugar Land City Council approved on Aug. 7 a Letter of Intent with ACE Sugar Land, LLC, for the development of a future concert and performing arts facility. The agreement defines the terms of a public/private partnership for a 6,500-seat concert and performing arts facility in Sugar Land. The venue’s proposed location is a 21-acre site near the intersection of U.S. Highway 59 and University Boulevard, an area that will include a larger mixed-use development within an area of Telfair identified for commercial, office and entertainment purposes. No time line has been set for completion of the project. The Letter of Intent establishes funding to begin programming and schematic design, with a focus on creating a signature facility that will be financially feasible and operationally self-sustainable. The concert/performing arts venue is expected to benefit the community by promoting economic development, creating employment opportunities and enhancing educational offerings. In 2007, a citizen-appointed Visioning Task Force identified five preferred entertainment venues it felt would fulfill the vision of developing Sugar Land as a destination location for residential, employment, retail and medical services and entertainment. The Task Force’s top three priorities included a professional minor league baseball park, an outdoor festival site and an indoor concert venue. Sugar Land voters overwhelmingly approved the proposed venues and funding in a November 2008 referendum. Constellation Field opened in April 2012, and more than 250,000 visitors have attended ballgames to date, exceeding all prior attendance projections. A 2008 Market Analysis and Feasibility Study and an updated 2012 study showed that a concert/performing arts venue in Sugar Land would promote capital investment, create new jobs, enhance educational opportunities and create unique destination activities attracting local and regional visitors. “Making Sugar Land a destination for culture and entertainment has been a long-held vision of our citizens and City Council,” said Mayor James Thompson. “We believe this will fill a much-needed gap in entertainment needs in this part of the greater Houston region and bring many more people here to enjoy the arts and all that our City offers.” In May 2011, the City approved a memorandum of understanding with ACE SL LLC, a company selected based on its operational experience and knowledge of the entertainment industry. “My partners and I are honored to be selected by the City of Sugar Land as its partner in the planning and development of this exciting project,” stated Allen Becker, chairman of ACE SL LLC. “We have been fortunate in our over 30 years in the live entertainment business to have worked in the major cities of the United States and Canada, as well as in many markets throughout the world. But nothing beats home, and we will work as hard as it takes to make this facility a success for the City of Sugar Land, and to bring the best in entertainment to this community, our community!” About ACE SL, LLC. ACE SL, LLC, brings an experienced team of locally-based entertainment industry professionals to the project, led by Allen J. Becker, TONY Award-winning founding chairman of PACE Entertainment Corporation. The ACE Executive Team also includes Brian E. Becker, Gary D. Becker, David M. Anderson, Gary A. Markowitz and Kirk B. Feldmann. Together, they offer more than 175 years of experience and success in local, national and international entertainment ventures, including pioneering the development of new music and theatrical venues, as well as the entertainment to fill them. About Sugar Land The City of Sugar Land is an award-winning community 20 miles southwest of Houston. This master-planned community has achieved its sustainable, strong local economy through a strategically focused and aggressive economic development program creating new wealth and jobs. As a regional employment center, the City is home to numerous high-profile regional and international corporations housed in more than 22 million square feet of commercial space, including Minute Maid, Schlumberger, Fluor Corporation, Bechtel EO and Aetna. Sugar Land has also uniquely positioned itself as a hub for premium shopping, dining and entertainment. Venues such as the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land, the recently announced Constellation Field, as well as the future concert/performing arts center and Sugar Land Heritage Museum will further establish the community as a cultural and historical destination.
  13. I hope and pray to the development gods that the SL district along HWY 6 doesn't follow the trend of strip malls aplenty beyond the county line. I take the Hwy 6 route into SL at least 3 times weekly and am hoping for a less generic solution to that areas growth problems. I am specifically talking about the location on the east side of Hwy 6 between the city line and Hwy 90. Anyone in the know regarding how that area is to be filled?

  15. Does anyone have any details, road layout, and/or schedule for the extenstion of Mason between Long Meadow Farms and Waterview Estates (south of its intersection with Grand Pkwy). I've seen plans for future sections of LMF and they show Mason hugging the east side of the development, so I assume it will split off of Farmer just south of Oakland Elementary, and become the main thoroughfare up to the intersection of present day Mason/Farmer/Skinner. There is alot of construction work happening in this area and I just got a quick glimpse of it recently while driving through. If I remember correctly, Mason is being widened between Skinner and FM 359. Will Farmer Rd between Oakland Elementary and the entrance to Pecan Grove eventually be closed?
  16. The Fiesta Market Place in Sugar Land is closing less than a year after it opened. http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2014/03/sugar-land-area-fiesta-is-closing/
  17. The new Texas Instrument broke ground on the three-story 165,000 square foot Class A structure. The 7 acre site at the northeast corner of U.S. 59 Highway 59 and University Blvd in the Telfair commercial development is expected to be completed by 2014.

  21. Where do you all see the future of Fort Bend County ? Our population has reach 627,293 and is growing more and more everyday with no signs of stopping. I live in Sugar Land and I can definitely see the growth. If we were a city we would be the 7th largest city in Texas, just after El Paso ! I'm starting to wonder if Fort Bend is going to have to start thinking like a big city rather than a suburban area. For example, with transportation, Hwy 59 (I-69) is always backed-up and needs relief. Highway 6 is a nightmare, Highway 90 is starting to get crazy. Thankfully the Grand Parkway is being built out to 59. Maybe turn highway 90 into a tollroad, connect the Fort Bend Tollroad to South Post Oak in Houston, Commuter rail that reaches all the way to Richmond and Rosenberg, and maybe turn the Fort Bend Transit System into a full bus service system. Thats just one area of concern. I even see the day when the Sugar Land Airport turns into Houston's third major airport. It's just a Regional airport now but flights are constantly coming one right after another, even at night. It's the busiest small airport I ever seen. What do you guys think in other areas as well like education, real estate, economic development, crime, health care, etc. All these issue are coming up fast in this county and we have to find some answers soon.
  22. Per Bisnow, this memorial was recently dedicated in Memorial Park in Sugar Land. Haven't heard of using tilt-wall for this sort of construction before. More on the design and planning can be found here.
