After 3 years of being on and off the market, the former Memorial Hermann Fort Bend Hospital has finally sold and will be torn down and redeveloped as it cleared the final hurdles for the city approval. Memorial Hermann first put the Missouri City land on the market in June 2005 as part of the shift to a new Sugar Land hospital in 2006. SDI Realty Management Inc. of Houston purchased the 20 acre site, located at Highway 6 and FM 1092, on June 9. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the property previously listed for $13.7 million.

Like any other endeavor: there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. Don't expect to get rich in a hurry, no matter what they say on TV infomercials, and don't let the dog eat your homework.

FBISD trustees canceled a $3.4 million purchase contract with Hillwood Development for 77 acres south of Sienna Plantation for a new high school and a future elementary campus. Instead the new high school, which the district wants to open in August 2010, now would be built on a 65-acre site southeast of FM 521 and Texas 6. Trustees in February approved the purchase of 110 acres comprised of three tracts of 65, 30 and 15 acres - for $5.3 million at a price of $1.1 per square foot from Hannover Estates. The district may reopen negotiations with Hillwood in the near future as the district still has a need for a new elementary campus and a new middle school for the Sienna Plantation area when the subdivision is built out. In addition to the new high school, the Hannover site would also acco...
