Big real estate project headed for Energy Corridor - Houston Chronicle

Sure hope that this development goes forward. Would be nice to have a mixed-use shopping/dining/hotel complex in the area, rather than just another office tower.

It was a matter of time. The energy corridor needs a City Centre type of place to support the growth there.

Go to Google and search "One of the early real estate developments that helped shape" and then click on the link to get the full story. Clicking on the link above just gives you the abbreviated story.

I'm not sure we need another City Centre 3-4 miles away from the other one..but ok. Better than an empty lot.

Ps. I find the chron annoying that you have register to read.

I believe this quote from the full Chronicle article is the key to the development

"Leverett, who worked for the Woodlands Development Co. for many years before joining PM Realty in
2012, said the new development will emphasize serving the corporations that occupy space there.
In that sense, the retail options will focus on restaurants and services that an office worker would need."

This development will not compete with City Centre, so hopefully if it is developed it will not cannibalize what is already a thriving town center which is only a couple miles away down I-10

I like how they admit in the article that drilling in the upstream has slowed. The fact is a lot of the upstream has slowed so who the heck are they building this for especially since they're moving EM Chemical to The Woodlands/Spring area?

Oh I don't know. Maybe for all other majors in that area. Conoco, BP, Shell...and the 100s of smalls that they can't build office fast enough for.

hopefully it won't be as boring and suburban as Market Street. Something more like City Centre

There's already a plethora of restaurants, shops, etc in that area. It seems superfluous especially since they're losing EM Chemical employees.
