Sugar Land seeks someone to develop prison land

I hope they get their wish.

Sugar Land city officials hope to convert a 330-acre state prison property into a light industrial business park and are looking for private partners for the development.

The tract, which sits adjacent to the Sugar Land Regional Airport northwest of the intersection of Texas 6 and U.S. 90A, is occupied by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s Central Prison Unit.

You can see more on the City of Sugar Land website; if you think you might be the developer they’re seeking, go here. This is all contingent on the Lege actually closing that prison, which is currently in the budget plan and which Grits thinks might really happen. At this point, I don’t see anything standing in their way. The Trib has more.
