To those that are saying CC isn't growing or is backwards... Here is what has been in the news the last couple of weeks:

Schlitterbahn

Chaparral St. project


New Condo development downtown at the old Lichtenstein location

Outlet mall in Robstown


The proposed Regional Parkway


Italian Resin Plants


HEB in Calallen
. Not really big news, but big for Calallen. Lol.

All of this adds on to the I-69 conversion, already done through Corpus Christi and Robstown, the new developments at the Rincon Industry park at the Port, due to the Eagleford boom, and the three new Walmarts in the area. Add to that our growing, strong, economy, and Corpus should have a pretty bright future. Thats a lot of major development for a city of 310,000.

Its about time that some of these things came to light here. Although I somehow doubt the Cruise ship deal will become a reality. Great time for job seekers though!

On top of that. OxyChem just bought out the old NAS Ingleside location. I spoke with a buddy of mine that works at OxyChem and he said that will create hundreds of jobs.

I agree with you. Corpus Christi, in terms of population growth and location along the coast, as well as the new I-69 segments that are being built are helping the CC area and when completed all the way to Indianapolis, will significantly help the area in economic growth. Many people in this country right now don't understand just how important the ports of Corpus Chrisiti and Houston are to the economy of this country.

Yes the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are important, but without the Panama Canal (and its subsequent widening in recent times) imports from other nations and exports from the US to other nations in areas such as East Aisa and Europe would be in significant decline.

Anyway, I hope to see I-69 completed in Texas before the day I pass!

In fact, I can say that Corpus is building more high-rise Condos/towers than even San Diego right now. Corpus Christi, IMHO, is the "new San Diego."

Source: I lived in San Diego, CA for 6 years and NEVER seen the type of progress in SD as I have seen in Corpus.

Here is another project about to get under way in the Six Points area. I think one day this area will be one of the trendy, "fresh" part of the city. I think it'l be like a mini uptown Houston. Also, here is another condo project. I saw the sign up near the Atlantic Lofts last week.

I sure hope so. I also have high hopes that the north end of Staples will be updated too.. scary as it is right now though!

Well, here's some good news for the Airport and the area along Hwy 44 surrounding the airport. The area has seen a lot of growth lately with Baker Hughes, the regional Border Patrol office, and Budwesier Distributors. This should push for maybe some restaurants, hotels, and apartment development in the area. I always thought this area should be the next to grow in CC. It's just too good of a location.

Some might say it's bad for NASCC. But I see it as an opportunity. This will give NASCC more room to bring extra and new naval operations to the base.
