The tree evictions appear to have begun on the 14 acres of wooded land near the intersection of Holzworth and Spring Cypress roads marked for that Kroger Marketplace announced last year. A reader snapped some shots of spread gravel and a log stackup on the site (a piece of the larger 50-acre tract outlined in red in Read King’s leasing flier, as shown here). Preliminary plans for the broader Spring Pines Shopping Center include a slew of new retail spots near the Kroger; leasing plans for the soon-to-be-former forest note that the Kroger is almost directly across Spring Cypress from the area’s H-E-B, itself right across FM 2920 from the Aldi grocery store that moved into the area a few years ago:
The small retail strip at the corner of Spring Cypress and Holzworth, which contains the likes of Eva’s Mexican Grill, La Olla Colombian restaurant, and Texan Mattress, may serve as a minor buffer between the proposed Kroger site and its competitors.
Some trenching has also been spotted around the perimeter of the site:
