According to Metro Study Cinco Ranch (Katy) and The Woodlands are still in the top spots for expansion (number of permits to build new homes). Coming in after those are Bridgeland (Cypress), Cross Creek, Fairfield. Anything to the West and North West.

Where does the sprawl of the metro stops in all directions?

I travel FM 521, better known as Almeda Road. You can see new apartments, townhomes, and some of the most affordable lofts Houston has to offer. From it's starting point in Midtown Houston all the way into Pearland and Alvin you can see signs of growth in every direction.

The residential growth is the most noticeable, but anytime you add more homes and people there is opportunity for an influx of new businesses to serve the increase in population.

I've read it, too. On two different places (SSP and HAIF). I wouldn't be surprised if NM builds there. The Woodlands certainly has the market for it.

I'd see Neiman Marcus going to Williowbrook before The Woodlands.

Really? The demographics around The Woodlands Mall seem much better. Why do you say Willowbrook over The Woodlands Mall?

IKR. I thought The Woodlands was way more upscale than Willowbrook.

Willowbrook just seems like a much more progressive mall as far as attracting new stores.
