Oden Hughes to develop multifamily project near Houston's Grand Parkway - Houston Business Journal

Located on the westside at westpark tollway and grand parkway. Should be interesting to see what commercial developments fills into the lakes of bella terra commercial reserve once these units go in.

Widening of 1093 can not come soon enough.

Happy to see it's Class A apartments. People threw a fit when they learned about the apartments at the last Lakes of Bella Terra HOA meeting in October. The apartments are a reality whether someone likes them or not - I would rather see them as a nice buffer to the GP/Westpark Tollway than closer to the interior of the neighborhood.

From what I recall at the HOA meeting, they're hoping for some restaurant-style establishments (especially near the entrance's lakes) rather than pure strip center tenants. I would accept a mix of both if nothing else.

Although I don't want to see too many go up, the good things are:

They build in the crappy parts near the major roads, buffering the sounds of traffic. You just don't want your own house to be too close.

The people who work in the restaurants we want here HAVE to live somewhere. They aren't going to bus employees in. Ditto the gas stations and shopping.

Totally agree. I commute from the energy corridor into Fulshear. I see the long line of cars on 1093 heading to 99. Wow, this is nothing like it was 5 years ago when my office first moved to Fulshear. It has exploded in growth.....all but the roads. The roads are the same roads from when it was a sleepy country town.

Widening might help temporarily, but all the subdivision growth will pretty quickly turn the widened street into a congested mess too. Everyone who moves to that area should accept this. We should have a much tighter street grid - meaning more alternatives for through-streets - but that's not how we do it here.

A little more insight as to what might be going in the commercial reserve areas outside of Lakes of Bella Terra, although this is probably about a year old now based on the entire PDF file.

I'm always telling my wife the reason they don't have more alt routes is because they want to force you to pay tolls.
