One item of interest, in 2022 the owner of the old Chevron site announced that Methodist had leased 100,000 s/f of space in one of the existing Chevron buildings. However Methodist apparently chose not to move into the space. You can view the P&Z Public Hearing and entire meeting here.
On March 9, 2023, Page Southerland Page, representing Houston Methodist Hospital, is scheduled to present a plan to the Bellaire Planning and Zoning Commission at 6:00 PM on March, 9, 2023, for a Planned Development on the 3.187 acre Randalls site at 5130 Bellaire Blvd.

After an earlier presentation to P&Z of a 5-story structure and large parking garage was met with some criticism, Methodist will present a plan they feel is more community-oriented. It would include three 1-story retail structures and a 3-story office building and parking garage, built over underground parking.
The new development would add trees and green space and actually reduce the impermeable surface on the site. But it certainly won’t have the same look as the 1-story Randalls store.
Speakers are welcome at the Public Hearing. Comments can be emailed to P&Z via firstname.lastname@example.org.
