When are they going to start phase 2? It looks like they did all the work with the lake, and then just stopped. Are they waiting for more people to come out here? Thanks.

its supposed to open near spring 2009 (according to the website) so it should start soon im guessing.

A newsletter from b4-u-eat.com announced that Perry's steakhouse will be opening late March 2009.

How is this news worthy of a new thread? We already have a perfectly good useless La Centerra thread.:rolleyes:

This was already discussed last summer. :P

The website now lists phase 2 as opening in fall 2009. They have started work on Perry's Steakhouse though. That's listed with a Fall 2008 opening.

I know it was already discussed. I figured the old thread had gotten a little long (and I personally dislike a long thread) and thought I'd start a new thread for La Centerra 2009. And although you don't give a rat's *** about what's going on in suburbia (although you do spend a considerable amount of time bashing it), some others do.

That's gotta be the strangest thing I have ever read. :blink:

Whether it's suburban, rural, or urban, I just care about well planned growth and dislike lazy sprawl developments that waste land. Discuss that here, if you can handle a long thread. :rolleyes:

So yeah, the we have an "echo" of Perry's coming to La Centerra. . . slow news day I guess. -_-

I combined the threads, but if there is an interest in Perry's at La Centerra having its own thread again, I can undo it...

The thread topic that was merged was titled "La Centerra 2009" to this "La Centerra"

ya, 2009!?!?!

We don't even have a "Houston Pavilions 2009", "West Ave. 2009". Does La Centerra need one . . . no.

Thanks for merging.

Houston Rockets 2009 season, Houston Texans 2009 season, I get . . . this, not so much.

Heck, I reused the same American Idol thread each year.

I was just thinking that I would start a new thread for La Centerra, since the other was long and old.

It's called "topic bump"

I suggest that this should be separated into a separate thread called "why do I have nothing better to do than argue about thread names? :P "

How was that strange? A little bit of intelligence would suffice to be able to understand his post...

Good ahead and bash suburbia, no one is listening. Except for other insecure suburbia bashers. It's bringing jobs to the area, and the development itself is aesthetically appealing...

And long threads are annoying. I think it is reasonable to start a new thread, especially when the second phase of the development starts construction. ^_^

You must be new to the concept of forums.

This thread is only 6 pages long. We have threads in the 100's. :rolleyes:

I don't see your logic. I am capable of reading 6 pages without being annoyed.

May I suggest a book in this series below to start with.

La Centerra does not have a book store yet. Oh well, there is always Katy Mills.

You can find them at Books-A-Million, since Katy is not. . . you know. . . ready for a Borders or Barnes and Noble. :D

Took the survey, some promising restuarants and stores that La Centerra is trying to get. I think if they get half of these it will help the area tremendously. Also, recently they confirmed Ottos Grill a new concept from Otto's BBQ restaurants. This will be where the Johnny Rockets was located. Also, unfortunatly the Cold Stone Creamy abruptly closed and a new yogurt place called Berripop is soon to open there. In addition, a stationary and gift store will go in next to the Wine store.

Add a Fit N Fresh Gourmet store to the new line up as well 

From today's real estate transactions on the Chron.com

MIXED-USE: LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch announced more than 11,200 square feet of retail space and almost 9,500 square feet of office space has been leased this summer in the center at 23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd. and Grand Parkway in Katy. New retailers include Berripop Frozen Yogurt, Fit N Fresh Gourmet, Otto's Deluxe Grille and Paper Lane Stationery and Gifts Too. Relocating business offices to LaCenterra include Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Anderson Properties, the Law Office of Scott P. Callahan and Woodco Fund Management.

Well tried the Berripop place and have to say not very impressed or thrilled by this addition. But guess it needs time. Just seemed like regular stuff I could get from a supermarket. Some of the local Gelato places are far better.

Is Los Alamedas is anything like there old location this will be a very good addition to LaCenterra.

Fit and Fresh along with Ottos sound interesting. The paper store is of no use.

I work in La Centerra and decided to take a couple pictures from my office today in case anyone was interested in seeing what exactly this is.

photo21_zps9b46272e.jpg

photo11_zpse0539de4.jpg

The building in the foreground is going to be a restaurant (not sure which one) and that has only recently started going up. The metal roof is blinding in the morning. The building obstructed on the right was the first to go up and they just started bricking up the walls within the last day or two. I'm also not sure what's going in there but it will be a few shops and maybe a restaurant with an outdoor patio.

The building that is obstructed to the left is going to house a majority of the new restaurants and shops (including beer world which sounds good to me already). The dirt area in front of that building is going to be an open space which will supposedly have an amphitheater. There is another building that you can't see here that is further to the left which is nearly complete from the outside and will house a few other stores.

Looks like they're ready to start the next phase at La Centerra.http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2013/04/new-office-building-planned-in-katy/

Wow that is much bigger than the original plans for phase three. Phase two is almost done at this point. They started doing some site work recently on the remaining open land where this building would go. I'll get some pictures this week and post them here.

<p>According to the directory at http://www.lacenterr...il-restaurants/ it will include:

  • Bonefish Grill
  • Emmanuel Salon
  • Grimaldis Pizzeria
  • World of Beer
  • Zoe's Kitchen

Ate at the Zoe's yesterday. It's got a nice seating area next to one of the lakes. Noticed Grimaldi's is going in next to Zoe's. They've got a sign up and are finishing the buildout inside. I think Bonefish is already open, but the one I'm most curious about is World of Beer. Can't wait to check that out.

A couple of pictures I snapped on my way out yesterday.

 

This first one is where my most anticipated retailer - Beer World - is going to be.

This second one is the new plaza with an amphitheater that is nearing completion.  There is field turf in the center like you see at City Centre or the other plaza already in place at La Centerra.  This chunk of turf is considerably larger than the one for phase one

It looks like there is a new Italian restaurant, D'Amicos to add to the list of restaurants. I think they'll back on the amphitheater. They currently have locations in the University and Heights areas. A simple search on their name brings up their web site and their menu and prices look good.

Nice, I've really been surprised that it's taken so long for an Italian restaurant to go in there.

I walked by the World of Beer location yesterday, and it looks really nice. A long bar with a lot of windows that can be opened to the outside. Large patio out front.

 

Grimaldi's looks ready to open .... think they may have been having a soft opening or some event.

 

I wish I could be more excited about D'Amicos ... I've been to both locations and am always underwhelmed. But i'll go to a middling local chain rather than something like Olive Garden any day. Speaking of local chains, a Pronto or Cafe Express would be nice.

Grimaldi's is scheduled to open Monday, but I think that they are doing staff training. Wouldn't be surprised at all if they soft open this weekend.

I agree with you on both Pronto and Cafe Express. I think both of them would do big business out here. I'm really surprised that more of the local chains haven't moved out here after the success that companies like Mission Burrito and Black Walnut have had.

I'm thinking of going and checking out World of Beer tonight around 8 or 9 pm. If anyone is interested. I know it's last minute but I just decided to do it. :-)

Do you live in the area? I work there and would be down to meet up with anyone if there's some forethought

Let us know how it is. They are opening one in Sugar Land soon. Going to be hard to top the Saucer.

WOB was packed when I went Friday night. Luckily they have a large outdoor patio area because the bar itself is kind of small. They had a band and even though it was busy they had good service. They have an almost overwhelming beer selection. I stopped trying to pick my own and just asked the waitress to "bring me something new". Overall a great addition to the area for beer lovers (they  don't offer spirits) and I'm sure I'll being going back again.

 

I live nearby and would be willing to have a meetup there sometime in the future if anyone would be interested. It would definitely take a bit more forethought than I tried to get away with Friday. :-)

We heard about Trader Joe's coming to Katy - another forum had this link...

 

http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/article/Trader-Joe-s-to-open-store-in-Katy-area-next-year-4784939.php

 

Katy residents who want dried chile-spiced mango or a jar of cookie butter will have a shorter shopping trip next year.

Specialty grocer Trader Joe's, known for its quirky offerings, will open its fourth Houston-area store in the Cinco Ranch area sometime in 2014.

The store will be at 2643 Commercial Center Blvd., company spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki said.

"Cinco Ranch is a wonderful community, filled with foodies - it's a great fit for Trader Joe's," she said.

The Monrovia, Calif.-based specialty grocer arrived in Houston last year, and the company currently has locations in The Woodlands, Montrose and Memorial areas.

Trader Joe's offers gourmet and organic products, often value-priced. Products range from a wasabi seaweed snack to staples such as milk and eggs. About 80 percent of the store's products are private label.

The Cinco Ranch store will be 12,500 square feet.

Trader Joe's is a "well- managed company," has no debt and is "unique" in its offerings, said David Livingston, an analyst at Waukesha, Wis.-based DJL Research.

The company is among the industry leaders in generating sales per square foot, he said. It typically places its stores in high-density areas with higher-income residents.

An H-E-B has been in Cinco Ranch for a few years, and Kroger and Whole Foods have opened stores in the high-growth area within the past year or so.

Trader Joe's has almost 400 stores in 35 states.
