the cost to buy it isnt that bad really, considering that to do business in houston at decent level costs almost 1mill to start up now. what is killer is if you were to own that land, keep the track, and have no way to generate that money to pay taxes on the appraised value of that property. texas and its property tax.........we will be better off with income tax at like 3-4 percent.

Wow. You guys are right. That land would be perfect for housing/shopping development. Yes it's further outside of town than students want, but others will buy it and move OUT of town and students will occupy those empty houses closer to the university or Blinn College. Like someone else said, South College Station is BOOMING right now in development and is only going to continue with all the annexing that is proposed to take place just outside of the city limits. And builders in the area are already fighting for available land to build on. It would be a strange site to drive by and not see that big grass mound at that exit, though.

But for someone interested in developing it, all of the infrastructure is there... BTU power runs in front of the property, Wellborn water runs in front of the speedway already and we're talking big enough lines to supply a neighborhood. That eliminates a lot of potential delays and expense.

And I'm glad Wal-Mart was turned down for that spot, it would not have been very user friendly to get into and out of. That intersection can't support that kind of traffic with the current configuration, especially now that the feeder roads are one-way only.

Anyway, we'll have to wait and see what happens. As of now, there are no proposals submitted to the city for any developmental changes to that land.
