Check this out. Pretty aggressive concept. What say Kingwood (aside from the obvious flood commentary.

There I made it live for you.


Swamplot?? Omg LOL 

Prolix Raconteur --- 74 days ago -

Someone has spent a LOT of money already on water displacement studies, surveys etc. not to mention the architectural renditions and promotional material. Swamplot is just one website I found covering it, but it's certainly an ironic name for a site covering such a project, given the location LOL.

The Barrington would be completely surrounded by this project. It's massive.

I doubt this will ever happen, think Dino Park....and putting that on the SJ? Whyyyyyyyy?? 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 74 days ago -

Just what we need- more building. We'll probably ALL flood after that- 

Prolix Raconteur --- 74 days ago -

I could see that maybe on Clear Lake where there's an established sailing/boating community, but the San Jac river and Lake Houston are hardly boating meccas. They're even talking about some kind of water treatment (at least in the marina and connecting canal areas) that turns the water blue or green, like the fake lake around the woodlands mall. It's crazy!

It's 80% through the approval phase so once again you are incorrect. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 74 days ago -

Approving and funding a project of that scope are two entirely different things. That slick video wasn't done on the heels of investment; but on the premise of enticement. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 73 days ago -

Yep. Guess we aren't wrong after all! It's called dreaming. Finding investors is another story!

THAT DONT MEAN SQAT, people with that kind of money don't want to be on lake Houston. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 73 days ago -

The promo boasts "Berths for boats up to 40'" HAHAHAHAHA.....can you imagine a 40' yacht on Lake Houston?!? It would be grounded in 2 minutes. 

Sharticus --- 71 days ago -

They should paint a really cool concept sign of the future development and place it out there. And then years later we can pass by the half fallen down sign and laugh. You know, like the one on 494.

Meeting MONDAY, January 14th to learn what we need to do to PROTEST the building of the
proposed marina near Barrington subdivision on Woodland Hills Drive- MONDAY,
6-8pm at the Kingwood Community Center,
4102 Rustic Woods Drive. It’s the building by HEB and Kingwood Park and Ride.

Also the article is from almost a year ago. This is fake news or someones pipe dream.

Major development can take years.

The one that started this thread has already been in the works for years.

I'm not sure what approval phase you are talking of but I do know that the Army Corps. has already approved four wetlands permits for them.

This is a very serious threat.

I'd rather have a bowling alley. 

TinktheSprite --- 66 days ago -

If this goes through, the poor residents in lovely Barrington, ,a gated community, will be surrounded by high rises on three sides and the noises of water activity on the fourth side. Then if they flood again as the entire neighborhood did during Harvey, the water will be blocked in by the new buildings with no where to go. Comments about this project has been extended to March 1st.
