  1. Large future development coming near the corner of S. College and University Drive
  2. In the Facebook group "You Know You're From Bryan/College Station When....." John Ellisor posted a picture of the 9/5-6/2023 demolition (and also of the late 1970's construction) of the former Tinsley's building on Villa Maria near Texas Ave. In the comments of that post, the daughter of the landlord of another location of Tinsley's in Bryan stated it was (at least at one time) at the intersection of 20th and Texas Ave.

  8. This got dropped in favor of Blinn joining A&M at the Rellis campus, which already has a number of new buildings. http://www.houstonarchitecture.com/haif/topic/35537-texas-am-system-transforms-riverside-campus-to-rellis/
  9. The City of Bryan needs to align at least two crossings of Texas Ave. between Rosemary and Villa Maria. The way the light cycles are now with akward crossings at Sulpher Springs/Eagle Pass, North/Broodmoor, Hensel/Inwood makes for less efficient east-west traffic and longer waits on Texas. College Ave is in a better position for continued development. It's already happening, just slowly.

  11. Ten year update can be summed up as: AgShacks takeover some established neighborhoods, a "SuperPark" is in the works for the old Muni site, and finally, a study is being done for the "potential" of this area of town, branded as Midtown. The area has had loads of potential for a while, it's nice that decision makers have begun taking steps to help the area redevelop in a more organized manor.
