Pearland Town Center Developments

I think you're referring to the light at the interchange. Is that a city traffic light or a TxDot traffic light? I remember seeing TxDot trucks repairing signals at 288 and 2234 after Ike.

The light timing has not been changed to help east bound traffic from 518 now that there is two malls on that side. It still favors traffic coming off 288 going east bound on 518, all they would need to do is to extend it about 10 secs as mentioned or shorten the left turn light going 288 south so the east bound traffic can get a few more seconds...

I honestly didn't realize there could be a difference in ownership. I guess I could call the city of Pearland and find out for sure.

There's a box with a TxDot logo at the corner of 2234 and the 288 ramps. I believe that contains the controls for the traffic lights. I was thinking that a state highway interchange would probably be controlled by TxDot, but you never know. It would be worth calling the City of Pearland to see if they could arrange to coordinate, assuming that it is a TxDot signal.

Are they currently in the process of expanding 288 north of the Broadway/288 exit on the southbound side? Or is that a side road that they're working on?

They are not expanding the width of the highway; they are building feeder roads. The feeder roads will be on both the southbound and northbound sides of 288, but only between 518 and 2234.

About the feeder roads and the 518 traffic light timing, see this from the Chronicle:

http://blogs.chron.com/pearland/2008/12/si...elp_your_c.html

"...The feeder road construction is expected to be complete in one year and will cost $10 million. TxDOT is funding half that amount. The City of Pearland will cover $2.5 million with the final $2.5 million paid for by the tax increment investment zone that includes Shadow Creek Ranch."

Also, the traffic lights are controlled by TxDOT. The city is paying for a study which TxDOT requires before redoing the timing. This will be completed in January, after which the request to adjust the lights will be sent to TxDOT.

I've shopped at this store on several occasions since it opened and I can't help but notice the lack of customers. I've been there on a Saturday around 12 noon and the store seemed a bit empty. I was there on a weekday around 11 am and I felt isolated. There were only a handful of customers in the entire store. The salespeople looked bored. I hope Dillards makes it because it's such a beautiful store.

I don't think that this is unique to the Town Center store. Foot traffic/sales is/are down nation wide, as is evident by today's retail sales number. Dillard's, Macy's, or any other retailer is having trouble at the moment. It's a tough environment out there. I heard the female co-host of Morning Call (CNBC show) mention that she was in the Saks in NY yesterday and she couldn't help but notice how empty it was despite the "great" deals.

Now if the NY Saks is empty then.............

I agree but you look at the restaurants in the front of the center you could not tell there was a economic slowdown...

I agree and that is exactly my point, the restaurants seem to be thriving. I've eaten at most of them, BJ's, Gringo's, Red Robin, Fish City, Mimi's...etc. and they were either packed or full. The stores don't seem to be thriving IMO.

Two different types of businesses. We all know that eating out is a tradition in TX and Pearland is low on the supply side for those type of venues. One can justify eating out more than they can justify getting another item of clothing. When hunger hits, you've had a long work week, and you don't feel like cooking, badda bing!! Anyway, I would expect Pearland's offering of mid-tier restaurants (i.e. chain) to thrive being that folks are cutting back on the higher end joints.

Some are saying that Dillards will be leaving Brazoria County's other and only indoor mall. I went and sat out by the side of the road in the middle of the county on Sunday afternoon listening to A Prairie Home Companion and saw about 500 cars headed north in the first hour. Quite something for a Southern Brazoria County area of 75,000 people total.

Never tried it....... But wouldn't be surprised since business always seemed slow there.

Yes, the Arby's closed down. Also, I think one or two of the wine-bars imbedded in the Towncenter itself have closed down. I agree the competition is fierce. I'm actually surprised we haven't seen more casualties.

Me too. As to why to leave the Pearland area, it's because there's still not a Steak 'n' Shake. The only ones are at Eldridge and 290 and way out the Katy Freeway.

Some of the stores have closed. Brooks Brothers was a fairly high-profile casualty.

Steak and Shake is trying to come Pearland, according to a manager in Katy; they are waiting on a deal to go through on the property next to Red Lobster.

I heard that this deal went through - but I cant confirm.

As for the competition, it is kind of crazy: Mooyah, Red Robin and Five Guys; Buger King, Carl Jr's, and McDonalds, two Hibachis across the street from each other, Freebirds and Chipotle.

Also, I wish someone would just purchase that Arbys and renovate it. It seems like its was only open for a quick minute and then was shut down. Now its just taking up space.

Arby's is & has been closed for quite some time. Seems the entire chain is in a downward spiral & with out much of a fan following. OTB closed & the restaurant is now home to Lupe Tortilla. OTB has made 3 or 4 attempts to enter Houston market & have failed miserably every time. Chain tex-mex has to bring their "A" game when entering Houston or they will fall be the wayside!

HCA Healthcare Center for Clinical Advancement to train nurses in Pearland

https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2020/02/19/major-houston-health-care-system-building-pearland.html

 

Quote

 

HCA Houston Healthcare is building a facility in Pearland to provide ongoing clinical education and training for the health system's nearly 7,000 nurses.

 

The HCA Healthcare Center for Clinical Advancement will span 48,400 square feet at Pearland Town Center, 11200 Broadway St., just west of state Highway 288, according to a press release. It will feature high-fidelity hospital simulation labs, connected classrooms and de-briefing rooms. The center is expected to open by early 2021.

 

"Bringing the latest teaching technologies under one roof in a new, advanced facility is a major step in preparing our nurses to provide the highest level of care," Kelli Nations, chief nurse executive at HCA Houston Healthcare, said in the release.

 

Depending on the service line and certification requirements, nurses might spend up to 22 weeks training at the center. The center will also serve as a hub for all HCA Houston Healthcare new-hire orientations and the division’s Leadership and Organizational Development training. The second floor of the facility will accommodate new-hire orientation for up to 250 employees, while clinical education will take place on the first floor.

 

The goal of the facility is to standardize training across HCA Houston Healthcare's 13 Houston-area hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, freestanding emergency centers and freestanding diagnostic imaging facilities, per the release.

 

“The HCA Healthcare Center for Clinical Advancement is a significant part of our strategic nursing plan to support and grow our nurses as the differentiator at our hospitals and other facilities,” Nations said. “It certainly helps us raise the bar for nursing care in Houston.”

 

The project is already underway, but HCA Houston Healthcare officials will hold an official groundbreaking ceremony on Feb. 26. Chattanooga, Tennessee-based EMJ Construction is the general contractor, and the architecture firms on the project are Nashville, Tennessee-based Collaborative Studio and Omniplan, based in Dallas and Phoenix. Chattanooga-based real estate investment trust CBL Properties (NYSE: CBL) operates Pearland Town Center.

It's good to see this living up to its original mixed use potential. I remember originally the Pearland Town Center was supposed to be the center of a bigger development but I guess that never worked out. How is the mall element doing these days?
