Bridgeland is an 11,400-acre master planned community located approximately 27 miles northwest of downtown Houston. The master plan includes four residential villages, a 900-acre town center and over 3,000 acres dedicated to lakes, trails, parks and open spaces. In July of 2012, it was announced that two non-recourse loans were secured for a cumulative amount of $158 million for Bridgeland. These loans will accelerate development efforts to meet the burgeoning demand of homebuilders for finished lots in the community.
Planned for 20,000+ homes and 65,000+ residents, Bridgeland is currently home to 5,700 residents living in 1,650 homes, ranging in price from $180,000-$750,000. With more than 10,000 acres remaining, Bridgeland is projected to have a 25-year build-out.
Bridgeland has received numerous accolades throughout its short history including, most recently, The Greater Houston Builders Association 2012 “Developer of the Year” grand award. Bridgeland ranks #8 (up from #12 in 2011) in the nation for homes started in master planned communities and #3 among Houston MPCs.
- The Grand Parkway, a four-lane road linking Bridgeland to I-10 and US 290 began construction last year and is scheduled for completion in 2014.
- Multiple recreation facilities will be located throughout the community including swimming pools, community centers, ball fields, tennis courts and 60 miles of trails for pedestrian and bicycle connectivity.
- Bridgeland has made a commitment to providing lifelong learning facilities and is one of only a few communities in the nation to develop a comprehensive education plan for its residents.
