A HUB and a H-E-B in Sugarland

February 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The intersection of 59 and Hwy 6 is filling up, and now there’s a new expansion hotspot in Sugar Land: 90 and 6. And it includes yet another H-E-B groundbreaking.

Intersection 90 and 6

Here’s the intersection of 90 and 6, which Peter believes will be the new hub of Sugar Land. There’s activity at all four corners: StarTex Power Field and Cherokee’s planned redevelopment of the Imperial Sugar Tract, the Sugar Land Regional Airport’s planned expansion, a Sam’s Club/Walmart, and The Crossings at Telfair. Peter says H-E-B first approached Rubicon in summer ’09, and it took 18 months to lock down a deal. H-E-B also anchors Rubicon’s Sienna Village center; it bought 28 acres there in 2008, and the center’s occupancy has since jumped to 93%.

Phase II of Crossings at Telfair is along the west side of the development, on the going-to-work side, so it’s mostly service users (think drugstores, dry cleaners, and fast food). The 50k SF will span 15 acres and break ground this June. For Phase III, Rubicon is thinking a 250k to 300k SF entertainment, retail, and office atmosphere for the remaining 60 acres. Peter tells us the main challenge was convincing the marketplace that the intersection is viable, but it’s also difficult to build in a recovering market. Verdin & Associates’ Jesus Verdin did land planning, but Rubicon hasn’t selected a GC yet.

    This area needs restaurants more than anything. There are already enough dry-cleaner and nail places around here. Remember also that people north of Hwy 90 will drive here for restaurants… right now everyone has to drive into First Colony. Sugar Land Town Square is getting to the point of being so congested that it’s not as good for families going out to eat; we need other options in the Sugar Land area, and this would be a good spot. Another hotel is a bad idea… already enough of those too.
