Can anyone tell me how the new subdivisions are in the Manvel area? Is it becoming populated like Pearland has? Is there much shopping, etc? I really like Pearland but am considering Manvel as well.

Manvel is growing but the shopping is limited right now. You get much more bang for your buck in Manvel versus Pearland as far as home prices go but shopping and restaurants are few. You will still find yourself going to Pearland which is not far at all. What attracts you about Manvel? Where are you moving from?

We just discovered Manvel this weekend as well and have added to the top of our list. We like the slower pace. I would be interested in hearing what pros/cons people can share about Manvel. Many thanks.

Wow. Traffic is going to be even more of a nightmare over there with a new, large development along 288 like this one.

Texas7, what would a "standard" commute to the Medical Center be coming out of Pearland/Manvel on most mornings (and the return trip in the evening), if you know? Thank you!

This is tough to answer without knowing exactly where you're coming from and going to. Rather than take one person's opinion on time, use Google Maps. Create a route between the medical center and where you might want to live (i.e., use 'directions'). You'll see a tab for 'leave now.' Select that and pick "depart at." You can then pick a day and time and Google will provide the estimated drive time for that exact route based on the traffic typically found on that day /time. It's an often overlooked feature of Google Maps.

Oh, yes, I've done that. Recently, however, we were driving down 518 and found that it was a nightmare to drive through on a Saturday afternoon. Googlemaps/iphone indicated that it would be only a few minutes to go from Shadow Creek Ranch across 288 and on to the East side.

I don't live in pearland anymore. Been gone a long time but hate driving anywhere near 288 and 518, even on a Saturday And used to work with a guy who lived in silver lake and worked downtown. He always moaned about the traffic commute. Hopefully someone who lives there and makes that commute during normal rush hour can chime in.

I can tell you one thing for sure. Houston = Traffic. You will not find a suburb with a shorter drive time to the medical center during rush hour than Pearland.
