The College Station mayor has mentioned some major redevelopment on A&M property behind Century Square a couple of times recently. Any idea what that is referring to? Hensel Park?

A height variance request has been submitted for a new development at 203 Church Street in Northgate, next to the Standard. Looks to be 200 feet+. More and more towers coming to Northgate. Interested to see the future of this area. Owned by Rountree Development.



Is there anymore information on this development?
The Zoning adjustment meeting to discuss the variance request is tomorrow night at 6 PM.

It is in person, but there is a zoom link on the agenda I linked if you want to log in and watch.

From the agenda materials:

Quote:

The applicant is proposing a new mixed-use development in Northgate
encompassing four lots on the corner of First Street and Church Avenue.
This building is anticipated to consist of commercial use on the ground floor, with a
parking garage and residential units above which will be similar in character to
other developments in the area. The structure is anticipated to be
approximately 23 stories in height.
The north corner of the building is proposed to sit at 576 feet Above Mean Sea Level (AMSL), the west corner at 576 feet AMSL, the east corner at 576 feet AMSL, and the south corner at 578 feet AMSL.
The highest point of the proposed building is to be at 578 AMSL (or 235 AGL).

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Easterwood Airport Management
have provided support of height up to 578 feet ASML.

Now that the Christian Science building is being used as a leasing office for the Rev, I wonder how much longer until the block bounded by Church, Boyett, First, and Patricia is redeveloped into high-rise student housing.
Bring it. Put all the students in Northgate.


I'd rather have students living in the duplexes and fourplexes in town than some of the folks who have been relocating...

When did Burkes Outlet close? Not that I shopped there, I just noticed it.

Supposedly turning into a Ross I think.

There is already a Ross right up the street from there. Unless they plan to move to that location. I think you are thinking about the Ross going into the old Bealls on Villa Maria.

Yes, that's the one. Wires crossed.

Went to the soft opening of Nick the Greek's for lunch today. Outstanding. First of all, it's not Mexican, chicken or BBQ, it's something different. Not that there's anything wrong with those, it's just nice to have a choice. We both got beef/lamb gyros and then got fries & salad to split. Huge portions, good variety on the menu and very nice people. And don't forget dessert when you go. Had the Greek yogurt with baklava and honey which was a perfect finish. Can't wait to go back. OPA!!

Can't be free parking. Century Square is fundamentally opposed to free parking......which is why I don't go.

Free parking in the garage every time I go, and the casual walk around before and after meals or events is nice too.

There is a yet another bank building a branch location. First National Bank of Central Texas is going to build a location next to Gringos.

Wasn't Madden's Clementine's before it was ever Madden's?

Bryan is getting a new Starbucks, located at 910 South Texas Ave. It appears that is where a Rusty Muffler used to be. It is in-between a Taco Bell and Sonic.

Taking my business to places that don't charge for parking, which is everywhere else in B/CS is "dying on a hill". That doesn't mean what you think it means. You want to give Midway your money, your choice. I am making a different choice.

The parking garage offers free parking. I prefer denser developments like Century Square to the typical suburban shopping center with a sea of parking.

Google says temporarily. I'm pretty sure I saw a post recently about a temporary closure, but I can't remember where. My wife loves that place.

Vegan taco truck, "Green Taco," opened on Longmire.

Edit: NOT a "vegan taco truck," they just have vegan versions of the regular ones.

Don't hate the messenger.

Does anyone know what are the business coming to the shopping centers across Tower Point HEB? By the new Shogun and next to the car wash place?

Smoothie place like the one that just opened on University, and I believe Chef Cao's is relocating there since they're the last business that hasn't moved out of HEB.
