Houston-area residential building professionals are excited to see that development is moving forward in Cypress, Texas. After months of waiting, the master-planned community of Bridgeland has finally broken ground on Hidden Creek and the Lakeland Village expansion. The upscale residential development of Hidden Creek features 1000 homesites spread across 142 acres of lakes, parks, and waterways. Home prices are expected to range from $250,000 to multi-millions, and several lots will become available before the fall season. Peter Houghton, the VP of master-planned communities for Bridgeland’s parent company, Howard Hughes Corp., reports that “[w]e have been close to sold-out over the last six months.”
The builders who have been chosen for the Hidden Creek development are Meritage Homes, Perry Homes, Ryland Homes, Taylor Morrison Homes, Village Builders, Beazer Homes, Darling Homes, and Westin Homes. Bridgeland’s master plan was designed by Massachusetts-based Sasaki Associates, who also designed much of The Woodlands.
A dazzling array of amenities are slated for inclusion in the Hidden Creek addition such as Tree House Park, an elevated park built into century-old live oak trees, and a heated lap pool that will be open year-round. Tennis courts, pavilions, picnic areas, and playgrounds round out the amenities to be offered in Hidden Creek. The 20-acre Lakeland Village Park will include an enclosed dog park, a skate park, a canoe launch site and basketball court. The development is also very pedestrian-friendly, as the major walk/bike trail for the community will abut Bridgeland Creek parkway and lead to the Bridgeland Town Center.
While the homes of Hidden Creek are expected to be thoroughly contemporary in design, Bridgeland has also established Lakeland Village’s Lakeland Heights as a Traditional Neighborhood Design development, offering 144 new homesites which will be built in the Craftsmen, English Tudor, Classical, and French architectural styles found in Houston’s classic neighborhoods. This addition will be walking-distance from parks, schools, and recreation areas with plans for convenient pedestrian access to Lakeland Village Center. David Weekley Homes, J. Kyle Homes, and Perry Homes have been contracted to build the Lakeland Heights addition.
