odd there's a Taco bell within 3 miles either way (Becker and Spring Cypress) along with a Jack-In-The-Box that just opened a few years ago on Spring Cypress..same with Whataburger

 

Olive Garden will clean house out there....

Damnit what a let down. When we got the Outlet Mall (which a close family member designed), I figured the town center wouldn't be the usual suburban development. But nope. We're getting a thousand dollarsing Kohls in Fairfield. Yay?

Any update on what's going on here? There's a couple of small parcels next to the Taco Bell and Whataburger under construction but other than that it's an empty driveway with a bunch of weeds.

Chic Fil A is under construction (near completion) and the land has been cleared for the McDonald's.   I think the Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse construction will start in a couple months (if not sooner).

It's the same thing every other community is getting right off the highway(s).  Chain restaurants, typical box stores and fast food places.  Not sure what you could expect to be put in there, but it's the fairly typical "shopping center" that everyone else gets.   At least once it's finished there will be an Academy and new movie theater that serves food.

 

You're going to have to wait another 5 to 10 years for Bridgeland to start building out their "town center", which will be huge (approximately 20% of their land space), to get something a bit more upscale or unique.  Towne Lake's "town center" should have some nice offerings once finished in the next couple years.  I heard they are getting some higher end restaurants that the area is sorely lacking.

you blink while driving on 290 between the Outlets and Spring Cypress you think you're in the same area...the same exact thing...the site plan had a Jack-In-The-Box also...

Longhorn and Olive Garden pulled out.. don't ask me how I know.. 

Ok, I won't.  That's weird though.  Both are listed on the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation website.  Neither was overly exciting, would just be nice to have a few more options around that area.

How do you search for that type of thing? I tried reverse-engineering an upcoming restaurant (known) to see what I should search for, but nope...

Yeah you're right, I just expected something a little bit nicer going into Houston's "Premium" Outlets :P

 

Also, I heard a rumor that Bridgeland is going to be building the next "Mall of America" except bigger. True?

I don't see anything happening even approaching the scale of Sugarland's Town Center. For whatever reason there just isn't any commercial activity out that way. Might change with 99 and the area around Bridgeland but I suspect even that is years away.

I know that Bridgeland wants to open a "town center" of sorts in the center of their development, but details are sparse and that's years away anyway.

I heard a rumor that Birdgelabds wants to build a mall bigger than Mall of America...

 

I tend to file things like that with the "Disney is building a theme park in the Houston area" type rumors. More than likely, the master plan for Bridgelands' town center is a large complex with outdoor shopping, dining, Class A office space...you know, kind of like what The Woodlands has. If they do have a real mall, it won't be any larger than Willowbrook Mall or The Woodlands Mall.

Did OTB really need anyone else's help to go out of business?   ;-)     It looks like maybe they've finally given up on the idea that they can compete in the Houston market.

Nah I bet Alicia's did that; OTB closed a few years ago

I think you're thinking of the Spring Cypress location, Yelp reviews talk about how Gringo's emptied it out, and I'm pretty sure it was still open on my last run through.
