  1. The publicized route of the proposed Texas Central high-speed rail goes directly through the new Dunham Pointe development currently being built. The attached image merges the alignment map from Texas Central and the site plan from Dunham Pointe to show the rail going through planned homes, retail, and mixed use spaces, and very close to the next CFISD educational village. Are developers banking on the high-speed rail never happening? I really have no strong opinion either way about the rail, and I'm not following it super closely to know how likely it is or isn't to happen. But, the potential for this clash is intriguing. What am I missing? Harris County alignment map #2 — https://www.texascentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Harris_County_2.pdf Dunham Pointe site plan — https://dunhampointecypress.com/#aerial
  2. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/nb/cyf...ws/4399953.html ...future focal point of Bridgeland will be its 1,000-acre Town Center on both sides of Grand Parkway. The center will feature retail, multiple-family homes, space for a college satellite, medical facilities and offices. The center's construction time frame will depend on the completion of Grand Parkway, but Houghton said it probably would begin between 2013 and 2015. This area is exploding. It already has a greater population than the greater Woodlands area, and now they're going to stick a Woodlands-sized community in, with all of the other new communities planned/underway? I hope they get to work on 290 soon.
  3. I've visited Bridgeland before, and I think it is very beautiful. However, I've seen the price dropped quite a bit and was hit with quite some short sales and foreclosures in the last year or so. I am wondering, in general, is that community a good opportunity for investment purpose ? I am thinking of buying a property there, rent it out a year or two, and resell it. However, the uncertainty about the developer, lots of resale/new houses/foreclosures on market in that community, high taxes, bad traffic make me think it is probably not a good place to invest in. I do not know too much about the market history there, and your kind advice is highy appreciated. I see virtually no rental in that community, is it true that it is hard to rent out in that area ? E.g, is it reasonable to expect a market price of 280k house to rent out for 2500$/month in Bridgeland ? For a resale house (not new), is the market price around 90$/sf there, if it is one of the top builders, like Trendmaker, Highland or DavidWeekly ?
  4. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/6485249.html Master-planned community Bridgeland off the market By NANCY SARNOFF Copyright 2009 HOUSTON CHRONICLE June 17, 2009, 5:01PM General Growth Properties has taken its Bridgeland master-planned community off the market. The announcement came not long after the company awarded a local real estate firm the right to buy the entire development. The company will continue to develop the project as planned, and has
  5. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6437058.html Caldwell Cos. to buy Bridgeland development northwest of Houston By NANCY SARNOFF HOUSTON CHRONICLE May 22, 2009, 11:55AM Caldwell Cos. is in the process of buying the Bridgeland master-planned community in northwest Harris County for about $90 million. Share A Houston-based real estate firm has been awarded the right to purchase Bridgeland, an 11,400-acre master-planned community in northwest Harris County, according to a source familiar with the deal. If the transaction closes, Caldwell Cos. will buy the community from General Growth Properties for around $90 million, the source said. Chicago-based General Growth is a real estate investment trust that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month. Bridgeland is under development near Fry Road and U.S. 290. More than 600 homes are occupied in the community, which General Growth, a shopping center developer, inherited when it acquired the Rouse Co. in 2004. The project still has more than 10,000 acres and 20,000 homes to be developed, according to the plans. General Growth also owns a 42.5 percent stake in The Woodlands Development Co., which operates the 28,000-acre residential community north of Houston. Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund II owns the rest. When General Growth went into Chapter 11, it put a number of its properties in bankruptcy as well. Neither Bridgeland nor The Woodlands Development Co. were included in those filings. nancy.sarnoff@chron.com
  6. As if the tightening of lending standards wasn't enough... sux0r.
  7. I'm looking at the Meritage Homes builder in Bridgeland. Does anyone have any feedback on them - good or bad? Not too positive of a BBB rating - curious if anyone had any firsthand experience with them. Thanks.
  8. Map of the Cypress leg of the planned trail system Developers at Bridgeland had both the community and nature in mind when they constructed a 900-acre preserve to run along the Cypress Creek corridor. The construction serves as part of the Cypress Creek Greenway Project. Bridgeland
  9. Although they are quite controversial they make the .05% transfer fee on resale homes sound reasonable. Another money grab? http://www.houstoneflyer.com/Archives2/5725-GGP/index.html I dont know how long the link will be available. CyKat
  10. Sept. 19, 2007, 12:48PM 'Bright spot' in land deal Master-planned site northwest of Houston now more than 11,000 acres http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/nb/cyf...ws/5146875.html By NANCY SARNOFF Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle Bridgeland, a master-planned community in Cypress being developed on an expanse of land northwest of Houston, just got bigger. Developer General Growth Properties has purchased an additional 1,234 acres adjoining the original site, bringing the project's total acreage to 11,401. By comparison, Kingwood is more than 14,000 acres, and The Woodlands is 28,000 acres. The purchase comes at a time when tightening credit markets, high foreclosure rates and a collapse of the subprime mortgage industry have put a dent in home sales and forced some builders to scale back. "It's a bit of a bright spot that someone wants to buy land in Houston, Texas, when they already have so much of it," said Peter Houghton, vice president of sales for Bridgeland, which is near Fry Road and U.S. 290. "It's just an indication of how strongly they believe in Bridgeland
  11. I had been hearing about this coming to Bridgeland and I saw this on the Bridgeland Website: http://www.bridgeland.com/lakelandheights.aspx I have visited may of these TND communities throughout the country and was amazed at some of what I saw (positively for the most part). I am excited about the possibility of a true TND community in the Houston Area. What do all of you think? I saw a quick glimpse of the initial land plan the other day. I am going to try and locate it electronically and post it if I can.
  12. Drove through there and other new parts of Cypress today and was really impressed with several areas. I really like Bridgeland, the plan is terrific and they are doing an awesome job using and enhancing the landscape. The homes are very nice and cozy looking.

Large old oak trees in front of the Cypress Creek Lakes Recreation Area One of the many lakes in Cypress Creek Lakes Cypress Creek Lakes offers large lot-sizes. In the distance you'll see a tiny bit of the land that will become Towne Lake. There are some really nice big old oak trees on that property. It'll be very very nice if they preserve them.

  14. http://www.hcnonline.com/site/news.cfm?BRD...G=461&rfi=9 First 10 residents of an estimated 65,000 (upon buildout) have moved in. It's nice to see they left 3,000 acres of green space along the Cypress Creek corridor, that's a very pretty piece of property that everyone will be able to enjoy. Officials for Bridgeland project said the retail center will be open in the summer in 2007. "The town center will feature retail shops, medical offices, educational facilities and recreation," Houghton said. "We've set aside over 900 acres on either side of the property where the Grand Parkway is to be built."
