thought this sounded familar:

from an old HBJ article

And other major projects are already under way along the corridor in transition.

A group of local investors, including Steve Gibson, recently acquired 15 acres of land at the corner of Almeda and Hermann Drive. (See "Genesis Park hatches real estate player," June 7.)

and from the june 7th article
Equestrian exodus

The mostly unimproved 15.4 acres of land that came along with the Western General acquisition is bounded by Hermann Drive, Almeda and Ewing Drive.

Part of the acreage includes the decades-old Hermann Park Stables -- several acres of wooded land that ultimately will be redeveloped.

The owners of the stables have been leasing the property from Western General for years. This summer, they will relocate to a new site near the intersection of Highway 288 and Beltway 8. The new facility will be renamed Sam Houston Equestrian Center.

i thought archstone/smith ended up building the esplanade there but could be wrong.
