First signs of construction coming to Imperial Sugar Land
The sights and sounds of construction will soon come to Imperial Sugar Land as plans come together to create the community’s first single-family neighborhoods, the first phase of its luxury-style, multi-family residences and the community’s signature water feature.
A project of The Johnson Development Corp., Imperial is a 716-acre master-planned community at Highway 6 and Highway 90A. As the largest remaining development opportunity in Sugar Land, Imperial will incorporate retail, residential, entertainment and office to create a premier regional destination to live, work, shop, dine and play.
Its first neighborhood, Silent Manor at Imperial, will offer 27, one- and two-story maintenance- free townhomes and 37 custom-style patio homes on a waterfront setting. A second neighborhood, Quiet Cove at Imperial, will offer large home sites for 79 custom-style patio homes in an exclusive private, gated setting.
Construction in both neighborhoods will begin in the first quarter of 2014.
“There’s a big market for mature couples and individuals looking for new, state-of-the-art homes in the community where they raised their family,” says Imperial General Manager Shay Shafie.
Builders for Imperial’s residential neighborhoods will be announced in the coming weeks, Shafie adds.
This summer, Sueba USA will begin construction of 254 luxury-style, one and two-bedroom multi-family residences. The garden-style homes will feature granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, enhanced ceiling heights, custom interior lighting, hardwood floor options and other custom home finishes with rents ranging from $1,300 – $2,200 per month. Construction of this first phase of Imperial’s multi-family residences should be completed in 12-18 months.
Work also is scheduled to begin on one of the master-planned community’s signature features, a massive water feature located in the middle of the development near Constellation Field. Construction of the landscaped fountain is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
Moreover, an impressive entry feature is under construction on Highway 6 across from the Sugar Land Municipal Airport while property along Highway 6 and in the new, 150-acre Imperial Business Park has been cleared and made ready for development.
Plans are also progressing on the Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center which is to open in one of the historic buildings at Imperial Sugar Land. $1 million in volunteer community donations has been raised as part of a $1 million matching grant by the George Foundation to build out the facility. The museum is set to embark on a new campaign to raise another $1.65 million to cover its first three years of operating costs.
Imperial is home to Constellation Field where the Sugar Land Skeeters will embark on the team’s second season and a weekly Farmer’s Market held on Saturdays which continues to draw record crowds.
