Anyone know where and when this is supposed to happen? 

DearestTattooedDragon --- 1 years ago -

there's Super Kroger going in, but I haven't heard anything about HEB- 

napoleon --- 1 years ago -

I hope that's not true. It seems like we have enough grocery stores. 

DVaz --- 1 years ago -

I heard it will be on Northpark between St. Martha's & 494. Just what I heard though. 

Dust in the wind --- 1 years ago -

I have heard the same as DVaz. 

txwareagle --- 1 years ago -

Oh man, thats gonna really jack with the free flow of traffic.... 

Perfection --- 1 years ago -

Cool, more jobs!!! 

AFWife --- 1 years ago -

Many rumors of new HEB for a few years now...would be nice for one to come true. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

You like it because, like the Kroger's center businesses, it gives those from Porter and further north, additional shopping options. It's not in "Kingwood" or Harris Co for that matter. Lower taxes and much more lenient building codes are what is driving business development in that area.... Not the draw of Kingwood shoppers. 

Perfection --- 1 years ago -

Business is going to grow where population is.

That part of Kingwood is growing with the apartment complexes and planned communities like Oakhurst and Valley Ranch just a few miles away.

It makes perfect sense.

Besides, if others wanted to keep the land undeveloped they could have purchased it and put in a land trust for a park.

GROW BABY GROW!!!! 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

That part of Kingwood


"P"..... that is not "Kingwood." 

MandyD --- 1 years ago -

So is the area off of Northpark that is in Montgomery county not considered Kingwood at all? I know we looked at building in the Kings Mill or Woodridge Forest and both had a Kingwood address as opposed to Oakhurst which is Porter 77365. We are going with a new house being built in the Park section of Oakhurst right off of Northpark so I'm excited for the shopping areas to go up. And I'm sure people in Porter and farther up north already shop in Kingwood/Humble so it will be nicer for them as well! 

Bob in Texas --- 1 years ago -

Where are the legal boundaries of Kingwood? 

Spunkin --- 1 years ago -

Woodridge Forest does not have Kingwood addresses, they are Porter addresses. 

Bob in Texas --- 1 years ago -

Isn't Kingwood a neighborhood in the City of Houston? 

analogkid --- 1 years ago -

I just wish all of this could go on, especially housing areas, without the absolute clear cutting and flattening of every tree and vegetative area around. It won't be long and this area will look like closer in to Houston, Katy, and every other area that has been concreted over. 

mamadog53 --- 1 years ago -

I also hate the clear cutting. The trees and natural vegetation are one of the reasons I agreed to move to Kingwood.

I hope the new HEB doesn't mean that they will closed the current one in KW. I like the smaller size of the KW store as opposed to big one down in Atascocita.

Yup, there really isn't a Kingwood, it is Houston.

The neighborhood in question is Montgomery County - Porter so the benefit goes to Montgomery County in the form of tax revenue and the jobs are shared with both counties. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

mamadog53..... They will not close their only Kingwood location. The one on Northpark will be their Porter location. Two completely different geographic customer based draws. 

MandyD --- 1 years ago -

I apologize! We only briefly walked in the model homes at Woodridge Forest and just assumed that had Kingwood address like Kings Mill across the street. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

"Isn't Kingwood a neighborhood in the City of Houston?

Yup, there really isn't a Kingwood, it is Houston"



Thus, there really isn't a River Oaks, West U, Memorial etc. good to know

Mandy, make no mistake! Both King's Mill & Woodridge Forest are wonderful areas!

Yes, I know. I'm just biding my time until I can get a small house in the foothills of the Cascade mountains and not have to be around this stuff as much. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

RIIIIGHT???!!! Sounds WONDERFUL! 

MandyD --- 1 years ago -

Oh the homes are just beautiful in both areas! We LOVED the Westin homes and even one of the Gehan model homes in King's Mill but just were not 100% sure on the neighborhood. We were there on Saturday revisiting Westin before deciding to stay with Lennar in Oakhurst mainly due to lot availability. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

Welcome to the area!!! 

MandyD --- 1 years ago -

Thanks! 

gunsnroses --- 1 years ago -

I totally disagree with FreebyrdII about the new Kroger NOT being the "draw" (whatever that implies) of Kingwood shoppers. Are you implying that Porter people are inferior??? There are many KW people upfront who WELCOME this new Kroger. Not all of KW likes to have to drive to the BACK of KW to shop in those tiny stores. I'm sure the structure of the new stores coming in will be modern and very nice. More jobs for this area. Actually, without this new growth KW is actually decaying due to OLD age. Most of the shopping centers in the back of KW are hard to park in or drive around to get into; stores are SMALL, ect; and the traffic is HORRIBLE. Most of us WELCOME this change. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

G&R..... When investors look at an area for retail developement, they look at which areas from which the proposed business(es) will "draw" their business from..... "draw" is not an implication, it is part of a study of the "demographics" done by business planners when considering a new retail location.

The growth of the population along 494 and in front of Kingwood has been amazing! Couple that fact with lower taxes and more lenient building code makes business developement in that area a "no brainer."

Oh, & BTW, I do business in Porter and have several friends there as well. You can verify that with "P" or "K" at Two Friends Resale and/or "S" at Nicole's Italian Restaurant, etc. Please don't paint me in colors that don't represent me.

I'm happy a new mall will be coming in with the Grand Parkway :) 

zapper007 --- 1 years ago -

It actually will be at the NE corner of North Park and US 59/69...

It's a Kroger Superstore... 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

Have you been to any recent meetings re; the construction of the portion of the Grand Parkway which will cross 59N? 

Perfection --- 1 years ago -

AFWife there is a lot happening thats for sure 

DearestTattooedDragon --- 1 years ago -

living in Montgomery county means less taxes- the HEB on WLP is much more convenient-GR, it's no slight to Mongomery county! it's just more convenient to those of us in the back of Kingwood!if it was up to me, we'd be in that county- it was formy dh's dd we chose Harris county- way more expensive in taxes- 

Spunkin --- 1 years ago -

I apologize! We only briefly walked in the model homes at Woodridge Forest and just assumed that had Kingwood address like Kings Mill across the street.
No need to apologize. I think many people don't realize it. I chose to live here due to the location close to 59 without regard to it being Kingwood or Porter. Everyone says taxes are lower here but I think my MUD taxes are high but I don't have City of Houston taxes. My insurance is lower here. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

Health ins, prop taxes, sales taxes.... All less! Even car ins! 

Perfection --- 1 years ago -

My insurance is lower here.

Yup that it is. 

Healthier Me --- 1 years ago -

Since the movie theater went up, north park is in dire need of turning lanes there. I can only imagine what kind of traffic the new Kroger will spark. 

freebyrdII --- 1 years ago -

There are exhaustive threads re; that very subject. It is, indeed, going to be that area's Achilles heel!!!
