When was the Robinson water tower across from Hillcrest built?

I just saw another google street view directly in front of the water tower. There is still a sign there stating 635 acres for sale? I don't think I'm the only one who thought that was designated for industrial park since someone else asked if the billion dollar investment was going to be there. It is possible the sign is right along a boundary of the property I'm thinking about and a separate 635 acre tract for sale. All of it is pretty undeveloped right now so it is hard to tell.

No it is literally across 35 from Tractor Supply there is nothing on the large expanse of land but the water tower.

It's not there on StreetView. Current pic is from November 2016.

It's been built within the past 2 years.

I swear I saw it on street view yesterday hitting the access road in front of that land almost directly across from the tractor supply. That is why I was confused both the water tower was there and a sign in front for 635 acres for sale.

The Robinson water tower has been built in the last 6 months.

Then the land I thought was for industrial park is for sale or has recently been sold.

Work was finished in April or May on the tower itself but I think they just finished the work on the pipes going into it recently.

The land around is for the industrial park. Just not that small tract.

Here is a question for those in the know: Are the commercial agents sniffing around, or buying property, in Waco locals (Cromwell etc) or are they from out of town. I'd assume investor money is coming from outside of the city.

Speaking of the Grant Hotel. I had not seen this video of the proposed development around it. I know it is pie in the sky, but I hope this somehow gets done. This would be really special.

Watched the video. I wouldn't even care to speculate what kind of drugs they must be doing, but it must be some good ****.

So now in addition to a grand hotel next to the county jail, we have a white water river course, the worlds tallest climbing wall, and a giant river cruise liner.

Well, some fun ideas but they're a no go. Heritage Square and the billion dollar industrial complex. Grant Hotel should be expected to announce soon that it's a no go?

As an added bonus, the second phase of the I-35 construction isn't expected to be worked on until past 2030.

Other projects that are in the pipeline but no exact timetable:

Expand Hewitt Drive to 6 lanes.

Expand Marlin Hwy to Bellmead to 4 lanes.

Expand hwy 6 between the malls to 6 lanes.

Hewitt Drive to 6 lanes would be even worse than It already is. Trying to get across from the side streets will be straight Thunderdome

Yeah I agree. I have enough trouble getting across there already.
