Sounds like a Woodlands wanna-be.

By that line of reasoning, the Woodlands is a south Houston wanna-be since Southern Star Amphitheatre was already an up and running outdoor concert venue when the Pavilion was built in the Woodlands.

Or more realistically, the Woodlands is a long-ass drive from Sugar Land and the residents that live there have the money and inclination to tax themselves to get a venue a lot closer to them. The venue is going to be 6.500 seats which is about 1/3 the size of the Woodlands Pavilion - so it should cater to different acts and be more of a complement than a competitor.

The corner of University and 59S is going to be interesting in the next few years. Every couple of years UH adds another building to their campus there, this is now going in there and I read somewhere that Fluor had secured a large chuck of land at that intersection (I want to say 50 acres but I might be wrong since I can't locate it right now) which sounds like they might be moving their campus from Highway 6 and 59S - I believe their lease there runs for about 5 more years.

I noticed in the recent real estate transaction Dhanani Private Equity Group buys 50-acres from the Fluor Corporation there were parcels of land owned by the University of Texas System/Board of Regents.

I wonder what could go here in the future? Maybe a small UTHealth Sugar Land Campus? Or they could sell the land to a developer to create a mixed-use development.  I see Brookfield Properties owns the corner parcel.  I would imagine the two would combine the parcels into one big plat.

If you want to cause an uproar, just draw some sports fields on the UT land.  That would be a sure sign they are secretly planning to force a full-fledged four-year university on our poor benighted little village.  😉  Whining about the PUF starts in 3...2...1...

This report makes it appear that the UT land is tied to MD Anderson's plans for Sugar Land and they also hold the parcel between TI & Smart Financial Centre. The northernmost parcel is held by Newland.

https://communityimpact.com/houston/sugar-land-missouri-city/development/2023/05/19/sugar-land-to-conduct-development-study-of-tract-5/

"Stantec will conduct an economic and urban design study of Tract 5, which comprises the land around and including the Smart Financial Centre. The study focuses on approximately 83 acres of the tract, which includes two parcels owned by Sugar Land and one by developer Newland.

MD Anderson owns three sections of the tract and plans to construct 500,000 square feet of building space, Mayor Joe Zimmerman said."

Here are the two possible MD Anderson builds for the site.  500,000 square feet is a lot, so I don't think it's the surgical center.

Sugar Land Cancer Network Site Replacement - $392,200,000
Ambulatory Surgery Center Sugar Land/West Houston - $85,000,000

  • The title was changed to University Of Texas Land On Highway 59 & University Blvd.

Rendering was released for the new MD Anderson hospital on a 30-acre site.  Looks like a great building! HKS is the architect, and it reminds me of the new Baylor College of Medicine Dan L. Duncan building.  Similar design, where you have that upward-curve.

Does the University of Texas System still own more land at this site?  The 30-acres might be half of the UT-owned land in the immediate area.  Could see some more built here later in the future!

JEDunn Construction is leading the Design-Build Team for MD Anderson’s project in Sugar Land, Texas. The project consists of a new 5-story, 473,000-SF building on a 30-acre site. The cast-in-place structure will be enclosed by curtain walls, precast architectural panels, and metal composite panels. Surface parking will be provided for over 1,000 cars.
