Well, I'm pretty sure it will happen unless something weird happens. I live in Silverlake and we have a pretty active message board. A Pearland City Councilman who is a member posted a message late last year that an HEB was was being built adjacent to Shadow Creek but he didn't say when.

Seems like it will be more than HEB - The project name is Shadow Creek Ranch Town Center.

Located at Highway 288 and FM 518 (Broadway). Grocery-anchored with retailers, restaurants and service retail. Designed in an upscale Mediterranean village setting.

Construction already started.

Yes, the Shadow Creek Ranch Town Center will be on the NW corner of 288/518. They are clearing the land there now. Here is the little information from the SCR website:

SCR Town Center

To the south of the SCR town center is the Pearland Town Center but that construction hasn't started. There is a sign there that says 600,000 sf of mixed retail (although the CBLproperties webpage says 750,000 sf). The Pearland Town Center sign is on the SW corner, adjacent to the faux park and ride. Macy's and Dillard's will anchor the late 2008 opening. TWO AND A HALF YEARS???? COME ON!

Pearland Town Center

There will also be a couple shopping centers along 2234 surrounding Kirby and Reflection Bay. They've poured some concrete up there but I haven't heard any word on which retailers will be there. My guess is there will be either an HEB or a Kroger's there and the other will be near 518 and Kirby in the SCR Town Center.

Ok, a few updates on this...

I went to Crosswell Greenwood's site and they have some more details on the plan.

Here is the direct link to the pdf: SCR Village

Remember, this is the planned retail center at the NE corner of Kirby and 2234. They are showing a Walgreens and a Kroger's there. They even changed the little sketch of the buildings to say "KROGER" instead of "GROCERY." Also on their handly little retail map is the proposed HEB at the NW corner of 518 and 288. So there you have it. I don't know how long it will take to build either of these but it appears that they are in progress. Another interesting point, from the two plans, they show Kroger's having 65k sf and HEB having 150k sf.

And lastly, Phase II of Shadow Creek Ranch is shown on the map at the SW corner of 518 and Kingsley. They haven't even cleared the land there yet.

Do you know if SCR Phase II is going to be more residential or shopping centers, etc? This is the first map I've seen that shows anything south of 518 for SCR.

It's all residential. With two lifestyle centers to straddle 518 on the west side of 288, they won't need much more shopping. I don't know who owns all the land in SCR but with the way the homes have sold, it was a no-brainer to expand. I think sales are around 2000 homes a year and expanding. Phase I of SCR was 6800 homes. I think the first home was sold around October 2004 but I'm not sure. I know Perry was the first home to sell in SCR (big surprise). So you can do the math on how fast it is filling up.

I just saw another map that lists SCR as 8000 homes but they have a new section on the west side of 521 but I have never heard about that. I only know about the section bordered by 518 extended, 521, and Kingsley extended. Also, I did see some big trucks over there yesterday so it must be starting.

The HEB's to be an HEB Plus with over 140,000 square feet.

Pearland to get major retail center

Extra-large H-E-B will be project's anchor

By DAVID KAPLAN and ABBY TERRELL

Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle

Pearland is getting a major retail center anchored by a supersized H-E-B, Transwestern Commercial Services announced Monday.

The 600,000-square-foot project, called Shadow Creek Ranch Town Center, is a joint venture of Transwestern Development Co. and WCF Development.

....................................

A 142,000-square-foot H-E-B will anchor the town center. Developers are also in talks with a sporting goods retailer, a hobby store, cafes and banks, according to a written statement from Transwestern. Officials from Transwestern and WCF were not available for comment late in the day.

The town center will be in the Spanish eclectic style and feature red tile pitched roofs and asymmetrical facades.

The Pearland H-E-B will be much larger than typical H-E-B stores, which are 78,000 to 90,000 square feet.

"We are so excited to be in Pearland where we have not had a presence," said Scott McClelland, president of H-E-B Houston and Central Market. "It's the corner to be on. It's a regional site that can draw a long way to the north and south."

The larger H-E-B concept is called a "Plus Store," McClelland said. The first Plus Store in the Houston area will open Aug. 2 on Fry Road in the Grand Parkway area.

:D very cool. i read that in yesterdays paper. Its going to be a huge HEB. With the line off 288 trying to get onto 518, every afternoon, I can imagine how busy that center will be.

It would be really nice if they could use some of the massive space for wine, as the article suggests Plus Stores to have. But that's not possible in Brazoria, is it?

It seems that the alcohol laws vary by city or area within Brazoria. I've noticed that some parts of Brazoria are completely dry, some are damp (think Pearland) and then others sell everything. It would be nice if Pearland would change their ordinances so we can get that wine section. :-)

Here is a list from February 2005. http://www.texassafetynetwork.org/issues/w...p_list/list.php

Does anyone know why parts of Pearland (west side) say they are in a dry country and ask for ID so it can be scanned, but if I go to the east side of Pearland there is no mention of dry county and they only check id for age verification?

There is a movement in its very early stages to do something about the ordinances so that we can get get alcohol, at the very least wine, in Pearland. I don't know many details yet but as I find out I'll post.

Yes, please keep us posted. If HEB can't have a substantial wine section, I really have no clue what they'll use all that space for. They'll need a car dealership in there.

I hate having them scan my ID.

They've broken ground... let's give this new development its own topic.

Transwestern broke ground on November 27th for the SCR Town Center, which includes the HEB.

SCR Town Center Breaks Ground

Stores include (with my reactions in paren):

HEB+ (Biggest HEB in Houston and they may not have wine??? FIX THIS!!!)

Academy (eh)

Is this a real "Town Center" like Sugar Land Town Square and the one in Cinco Ranch? Or is it like Brazos Town Center in Rosenburg where it's just a big shopping center like the Fountains in Stafford?

I think this is smaller (more of a nice strip center) but it sits right between two other town center projects -- Pearland Town Center and Promenade at the Spectrum. Those will both be more in line with what might you consider a "real" town center. They'll both have shops, resturants, hotels and living space above retail.

Hobby Lobby and Academy? Ugh

I know this side of Pearland is in need of a sporting goods store badly, but I'd rather have it been a Sports Authority.

And there could have been many many better tenants than Hobby Lobby.

But this one clearly was going to take a back seat to the developments on the southwest side of 288/518 and 288/8 so I'm okay with it.

Spot on. This development seems nice but as mentioned, Pearland TC and the Spectrum will be more attractive. This area most needs a bookstore. I believe Pearland TC is getting the Barnes and Noble. I've read that Spectrum will get a "large national chain bookstore." Sounds like Borders to me.

Anyone been to an HEB+ before? I hear they sell everything under the sun. I imagine a Target with a greater percentage of Grocery and some Central Market influence.

I've been out of town the last several weeks, but I saw the signs for the 518 "Grand Opening" on October 30. I wonder what the delay is. It looks like the road is ready to go. I'm excited about the opening this week. Can't wait to check out the sushi bar and what types of fish they are going to have available in the expanded fish market.

518 is open. It goes to one lane each way a little bit past Kirby.

Pardon my ignorance but could someone tell me where EXACTLY is it and the easiest way to get in/out from 288 South ?

Coming South on 288, pass Beltway 8 and the second exit will be 518 (Probably 1-2 miles south of BW8). Take 518 exit to your right and HEB is right there on Shadow Creek Town Center. Very difficult to miss.

CONTRARY to what the big freaking sign on the store says (OPENING NOV. 7), the store has apparently opened tonight.

I just drove by, and there's an absolutely massive crowd.

I'm not sure if it opened, but I doubt it. The lot has been packed all day long. They have been prepping the store and seemed to be filming or taking photos this afternoon. My guess is that it's a pre-opening celebration by invitation only.

I went in yesterday and it was a madhouse. I ended up parking behing the store because there weren't any available parking spots upon my initial inspection and there were so many cars queuing up to find spots in front of the store.

Once I made it in, I absolutely love this store. It's a very open concept compared to the Central Market off Westheimer and the HEB in Miss. City. Very large, wide aisles, which with the mass of humanity in that store was very accomodating. Furniture and home section are smaller versions of what you'd find in a Wal-Mart SuperCenter with pretty nice prices. Fruit section was just like the HEB in MC, fish section was huge. They do have the homemade tortillas like CM, to go along with the very nice bakery section. Entertainment section in the back right corner had off-brand HDTV's, movies, music, and video games. There was also a $1 a day DVD rental machine.

Once I made my back to the front of the store, I checked out the nicely done magazine/book section. At the checkout area, every single lane was open, and every single lane had AT LEAST 5 people in line. It's a good thing I wasn't there to purchase anything, it looked like a 15 minute wait to get in.

I'll take the family sometime this weekend, hopefully the craziness will have subsided by then!

Beer selection stinks. (very few micro brews like most HEBs have)

Wine by end of year.

Steak prices are ABSURD.

Seafood selection is pretty good.

Produce is pretty awesome.

Cafe on the run, bakery, cheese / deli, sushi is pretty cool.

Furniture / home stuffs / electronics are kind of crappy.

It's not a grocery store..it's a show.

The prices sucked...almost everything is more expensive than other HEB's and the Walmart across the street.

The only item I found was cheaper, is milk.

Since Walmart won't be as crowded..i'll keep doing my shopping there so I can get in & out quickly & not get distracted by the Cooking Connection chefs & everyone else that has a mic, screaming into the crowd.

Went today for the first time..... I agree with many here; I was expecting more. Selection is pretty amazing, and I am sure they will get better with time. Did not think that prices were that bad, of course people are comparing them to Wal-Mart and not Randalls/Kroger.

Cafe on the Run looks Ok, will have to try it, same with the Sushi. Floorplan is quite complicated and the Bakery seemed to be out of place in the middle of the store. I agree that in comparison, Super Target is a better shopping experience than HEB Plus (For now).

Is it me or the parking lot seems small for such a large store.

interesting that the prices are being referred to as higher(i don't agree). like Chamo mentioned, i'm comparing to Krogers. I've often felt Target's grocery prices ran on the high end. So there was no sticker shock to me. I too don't think the experience is worth the crowd right now. Hopefully people will get over the fascination and it will become a more norm shopping experience. if not i guess i'll shop there at midnite :blink:

sidenote: i did try the asiago cheese bread from the bakery and the lasagna from the Cafe on the Run. BOTH delish!

bottled water was $2.99 for a 32 pack! that was an amazing savings

The Beer Guy at HEB told me yesterday that HEB will be getting their new liquor license on 12/20 or 12/21 at which point they will be able to greatly increase their beer selection. I was unaware that the current laws prohibited quantity (and thus quality) of beer. Absolutely fascinating to me. Or maybe it's certain brands that are deemed inappropriate for the general population? I don't know. But the beer guy seemed pretty stoked about this and was telling everyone who was pondering the beer selection choices.

I don't know if they'll be able to sell wine the same day or not. My priority was beer last night and wine slipped my mind.

Thanks for the update on the beer. I've been trying to find the beer/wine manager when I'm in there to ask him what the deal is. ALL the other HEBs in this state have VERY solid beer selections, so I was pretty stunned w/ the selection to this point. To make matters worse, the liquor store near work stopped carrying the only brand I would buy from them - Bridgeport.

In fact, they don't carry a SINGLE IPA in the entire store.

I'm hoping for Bridgeport, Full Sail, and Sierra Nevada selections. That will make me happy.
