Southbend rehabilitation?

Recommended Posts

Hey, just noticed on Google Earth there seems to be ground-clearing and dirt work at the old Southbend subdivision, condemned and abandoned in the early 1990s. I can't find any news on further cleanup (or possible development), anyone have more info?

What's an address?

 

Near Astoria and Beamer, Friendswood, TX

 

Well, the satellite images show streets being laid down so I guess its more housing for the Ashley Pointe subdivision

 

They don't, it's just a lot of dirt work where there used to be trees and abandoned right of ways where there used to be roads. Either you're confusing 20+ year plus abandoned roads as new clear-cuts or you're looking at the wrong place altogether, probably the latter.

This is imagery from 2012...

I'm pretty sure those are new streets in the center.

Hmmm...should've considered the third option: I'M the one with outdated imagery.

Yes!! They are building more Ashley Pointe homes out there. I was out there today and new homes have been built close to or on the old Southbend site. I can't believe they are building there again.

Whoa. That's hard to believe, that they could even think about building houses there, again. But, I see the new streets. Such a sad history, Southbend.
