Sawyer Heights Shopping Center

Recommended Posts

I figured that since the bloom is almost off the rose on the Target, we'll have to focus on wondering what's next for Sawyer Heights. With the warehouses coming down fast and furious, there should be alot of room for development. I notiice that the new Property Commerce site plan doesn't have the apartments shown anymore so I'd like it to be more retail space.

Figured we could have a new thread just for the next phases of development there. I had a coworker today say he "heard" that La Madeleine was coming to a "new shopping center inside the loop" but that could be anywhere I suppose...

Just FYI, there was a rather large billboard for La Madeleine just past where Sawyer Heights Village is located heading outbound on I-10, on the left (or south) side of the road there. I noticed it maybe a month ago and though, "that's odd, there aren't any La Madeline's around here." But maybe that is becuase they knew something I didn't: That they are soon to be adding one and are subtly trying to advertise to their future market. Intersting, we shall see....

mmm, tomato soup only minutes away! yeah!

We already know about the banks, starbucks and 24hr. I wonder if we'll get some kind of craft store...there really is only one that I know of inside the loop, seems like that would be a good "empty" market. There's bound to be a salon of some sort...

The neighborhood board indicates a Chick Fil A and a Best Buy coming.

I would LIKE to see a CM or WF, but that's been beaten to death...I loath to think that a HD or Loews comes in...

OH, a bookstore...I would LOVE a nice big bookstore as long as we are talking big chains...

I know its big box retail, but I actually wouldn't mind seeing a Best buy move in here. The closest one right now is outside the loop by the Galleria. There is a Circuit City close to where the other Target already is. I just don't know how much room best buy would require (usually they are "parking lot for the world" violaters).

Other than that, I was looking at the pictures from the Woodlands Water walk area and just hope we don't end up with the same movie back lot they did up there.

A person I work with told me today that she knows someone who works for Best Buy and that they were definitely looking at Sawyer Heights for a new store. I think a BB would seriously do gang busters. This shopping center is not intended to soley serve the Heights. Midtowners and downtowners are going to be a huge part of their business.

Excuse my ignorance, but where exacatly is Sawyer Heights. Can someone link a google map showing where the new Target is going up. I am confused. Thanks.

Check it out! It's already listed in Target's store locator.

www.har.com shows that parcel for sale. Go to commercial - for sale, and type in zip code 77007. You'll see this parcel, as well as 2.75 acres for sale directly behind Target, and 8 acres on Studemont, between I-10 and Washington.

Big sales going on, not just at Target. :D

Hi guys....

I haven't posted in awhile. My husband and I relocated from Chicago last August. Our original plan was to open a dog grooming/boarding/daycare shop but we just don't know where. I am now currently working as a dog groomer for PetSomething @ WestChase area.

We're looking @ Katy (Cinco Ranch/Grand Lakes), Downtown or First Ward areas.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Ugh, there's a Best Buy like 5 miles west on I-10. Do we really need one in the Heights?

Sawyer Heights is not in the Heights, so the BB won't be either. I think the thing to remember is that this shopping area is also just not intended to serve people in the Heights (the ones who have easiet access to I-10), but also midtown, downtown and Montrose. Believe it or not, if you live in Montrose, the BB on I-10 is really inconvenient.
