H-E-B Grocery Co. opened its first Fulshear store in February and may build another near Fulbrook on Fulshear Creek in the next few years, the developer of the master-planned community said.

Robert Fondren of Trend Development said at the Nov. 20 Fulshear City Council meeting that H-E-B is considering building a store near the intersection of FM 1093 and Fulshear Trace once construction has finished on that intersection. H-E-B has owned the roughly 18-acre tract of land since 2016, according to Fort Bend Appraisal District records.

"The last conversation we had with [H-E-B Houston President] Scott McClelland was that as soon as the intersection was complete, they would consider construction on the store," Fondren said. "No promises, but they said they're not going to do anything until the road construction is finished."

Community Impact Newspaper reached out to H-E-B and Trend Development for more information, but neither responded to the requests.

Road improvements to FM 1093 started in 2016 and are expected to be complete in December 2020, Fort Bend County engineer Richard Stolleis said. The goal of the project is to make FM 1093 a two-lane frontage road in each direction on either side of the Westpark Tollway and eventually allow for additional toll road lanes extending west to Fulshear.

In total Fulbrook on Fulshear Creek will have over 1,100 house lots and about 30 acres of commercial development—of which about 18 acres is owned by H-E-B—according to Trend Development’s presentation to City Council. A multifamily component will not be pursued, Fondren said.

The remaining 12 acres of commercial development has not been planned yet, Fondren said. These tracts surround Fulshear City Hall, at 30603 FM 1093, to the west, east and south, per the presentation. Fondren said Trend Development would like to enter a co-marketing agreement with the city when it is ready to relocate City Hall and market the properties together to attract a buyer.

“They're independent, and they can be developed separately, but it makes a lot of sense—and I think it makes more sense for the taxpayers of the community—to have a really first-class project at that location all being developed as a single project,” Fondren said.
