Moore Plaza

Moore Plaza is the destination “Power Strip Center” in Corpus Christi, located on South Padre Island Drive near the two major shopping malls (La Palmera Mall and Sunrise Mall). The 50-acre shopping center is located in the eastern portion of a 115-acre tract left in trust by the late Mrs. Blanche Moore. This complex project initially required extensive planning and design coordination with the City engineering and planning departments to address traffic and drainage concerns. The resulting $1.5 million offsite drainage system was designed and installed, while Williams Drive, a collector street to the south, was widened and reconstructed to facilitate the shopping center design. Urban Engineering was intricately involved in all facets of surveying, platting, planning and design of the 50-acre shopping center’s overall infrastructure as well as the individual building sites and numerous restaurant and retail pad sites fronting South Padre Island Drive between Everhart Rd and South Staples St.
