In addition to Holly Hall, the College Baseball HOF, TTU's sports performance center, numerous hotels, and other projects, Monsanto today announced a $140 million cottonseed processing plant near the airport, scheduled to break ground in March and start production in summer of next year.

While fifty sounds a bit underwhelming, at least it's a step in the right direction. And Monsanto is no slouch.

I was told several weeks ago that Walmart plans a Neighborhood Market at Lubbock. That's Walmart's grocery store for those who don't know. With my greying brain cells, I don't even recall who it was that told me that so it can only be classified as a verified rumor.

I would expect that any new cottonseed plant will produce at the least seed and oil. That's what they used to produce.

Undoubtedly a rumor since this is the story today about Walmart:

Not a rumor. Walmart will build a neighborhood market in Lubbock at 98th and University Avenue and is just about ready to open the newly-built store on 114th Street. I heard on the radio yesterday that they're hosting a job fair to staff the stores. Also, I noticed United Supermarkets is building a new store on FM 1585. I can't believe how much construction is going on. And it seems to be all over, not just in one area.

That's great! I have a family member who has worked at the big Neighborhood Market at Albuquerque for years and that store does well. There's no reason to think Lubbock could not support one. It may be a bit smaller than the store at Albuquerque but these can be great places to buy groceries.

Story from a month ago, but I'd imagine that it's still relevant:

I just came to this forum to comment on the amazing amount of construction going on in town, and the unbelievable growth since we moved here 11 years ago. A friend of mine told me that TT has 150 million in construction planned in the next few years. There is new construction everywhere it seems. It almost seems like the town has doubled in size in the time we've been here. Obviously that's an exaggeration. But I saw an estimate the other day that it was 20% growth in the last 15 years. No doubt in my mind that that is true, and even that could be an underestimate.

They're starting to get busy with new multi-story hotel projects that will include ample convention space. A new Aloft and a new Sheraton are going in. http://static1.squarespace.com/stati...+-+Booklet.pdf

Also, there's talk of a new Best Western opening up in Northwest Lubbock (though the exact location is not known yet), as well as a complex consisting of multiple hotels going up at Loop 289 at Clovis Highway.

^^^ Oh, that Best Western I mentioned earlier? Just found out where it's going in.

That Travelers Inn that's been there on Avenue Q since, oh, Moses was alive?? They're demolishing the old facility. In its place will be a new Best Western Premier hotel. It's almost going to be directly across from that Holiday Inn location.
