The HEB rumor I mentioned is just that; a rumor. However it seems a little odd that they are doing so much demo just for the Kohls and Luby's.

Really nice neighborhood. Red Elementary is an EXCELLENT school with great leadership and caring teachers. My son loved it there.

I think that these are just rumors about the Randalls. I personally would love to see a Whole Foods go in there but I know I'm probably not in the majority. Sounds like HEB is the favorite.

I moved to Willowbend 10 years ago and I assure you that you will be happy here. It's a great location. We are seeing more people just tear down and build a new home. Plenty of off-duty HPDs prowl around looking for suspicious activities to shakedown and cuff 'em! So, it's safe. There is very little drive through Willowbend area because of the railroad blockage on the south and east.

Last November, we had a neighbor festival in Willow Park and many people enjoyed the activities. Please do visit the vendor booths as many of them are local clubs and business owners who live in the neighborhood (I am one of them ).

Friends love meeting at our home because of the convenience and unique escape from the suburbs. Visitors run and bike with me and say pleasant comments about the neighborhood. We also have a lot of back roads driving options (same friends say that I drive like a New Yorker so don't be reading this at a stop light!).

We are glad to see the Meyer Park redevelopment. I've notified the owners that we are seeking a retail office space and I have yet to see the plans. I agree it would be a bonus to have Whole Food store.

So, it's always getting better and most of us want to stay in the neighborhood for another 10 years!

I Love this thread!
Me and my husband are looking into houses in the area, and I'm really happy to hear about developments like the Willow Waterhole Greenway Project happening so nearby. . . thanks for the info!!

Today--April 23, 2011--my husband and I were walking passed the Meyer Park redevelopment and lo and behold a copy of the electrical-construction plan for the site flew in our way. The project is called The Lakes at Meyer Park. Clearly, the development is larger than the Kohl's and "new" Luby's mentioned thus far. It appears that perhaps five to six new buildings will grace the 42 acre site. No names were mentioned on the plans. The plans showed the old Chili's, Schlotskys, Randalls complex, and Blockbuster complex in tact. We are not sure what this means (will these buildings stay or go?). I googled Lakes at Meyer Park and found a Dodge Report, which I did not buy, that alerts contractors to projects around the country. I, for one, would like to see a Petsmart, Academy, and a new Theater complex, plus a slew of new restaurants go in. With gas prices so high, we need neighborhood development!!!! Yep--this is getting interesting. While not unwelcome, this development will mean a lot more traffic for that section of So. Post Oak and Bellfort.

traffic there is a little crazy trying to get off Post Oak into Westbury.

that is awesome about those plans if they come to fruition. the plot definitely looks to be prepped for more than a Kolhs

Not trying to scare any potential buyers, but has anyone heard about the crimes that have recently occurred in the neighborhood, perhaps its the rough times but recently there have quite a few more break-ins than usual.
