As HBW subscribers already know, the number of residential construction jobs in Bridgeland continues to climb. Newly opened model homes in the Hidden Creek neighborhood of the 11,400-acre master planned Bridgeland are expected to attract even more buyers into the nearly sold-out community. Beazer Homes and Ryland homes are the first of the neighborhood’s 8 home builders to open models. Peter Houghton, VP of Master Planned Communities for Bridgeland, says that the community is “excited to begin showcasing our builders’ newest models in Hidden Creek.” To learn more about the positions in Hidden Creek, contact HBW to receive your building permit activity report for Bridgeland and the Houston metro area.
According to Houghton, “These openings come at an exciting time as northwest Houston rapidly expands, and Bridgeland continues to attract buyers with its wide range of desirable housing, resort-style amenities and top-notch schools.” Beazer’s new homes range from 2,140 to 2,998 square feet with prices beginning in the low $300s. Ryland offers five floorplans, ranging from 2,023 to 2,499 square feet with prices beginning in the low $300s.
Last June, Bridgeland broke ground on the Hidden Creek and Lakeland Village expansions. 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.
