Stumbling on the flats

The Falls at Friendswood, located at FM 528 and Nasa Parkway, will be the first pedestrian friendly mixed-use development in the Friendswood area. The project is slated to open in the fall of 2008.

Irvine, Calif.-based Eclipse Development is planning 500,000 square feet of retail along with a boutique hotel, custom townhomes, condominiums and upscale apartments.


The developer chose Friendswood as the location of its first project in Texas due to the high household income in the area. Within a three-mile radius of the project, the average household income is $79,477.

So. The Falls at Friendswoode, huh? I hate to break it to you, that Friendswood (a far-out sorta-burb of Houston) is out there on the coastal plain and flatter than an Armadillo on I-10. What a great name.
Thank God I only have to leave the Peripherique to go to work.
