Work has begun on a mobility project in Cypress to extend Mason Road south of Hwy. 290 into the future site of the Dunham Pointe master-planned community.

Archie Dunham, the developer behind the community, said he hopes to have contracts with several home builders signed by the end of the year and is aiming to have a ground breaking event at the site some time in the first quarter of 2021.

"We’re just going full speed ahead," Dunham said. "I’m really pleased at how it's going, especially with the interest we’ve had."

The Mason Road crossing has been considered a key milestone in bringing the community to fruition, Dunham said. The years-long process of getting to this point has involved working closely with Harris County, the Texas Department of Transportation and the Union Pacific Railroad Corp., which owns a set of railroad tracks at the Hwy. 290 intersection that Mason Road will also cross over at grade. Following the construction of the Mason Road crossing, a similar crossing will be cut for Mueschke Road, Dunham said.

Dunham said the interest in the community from builders has been strong, including commercial builders interested in the two-mile stretch within the community along the south side of Hwy. 290. He said the community will feature thousands of homes at build-out across a wide range of lot sizes, though he declined to provide additional details until after the home builder contracts were finalized. The community will cover roughly 1,300 acres in total.


"We’ve had unbelievable interest from numerous builders," Dunham said. "We’ve had a lot of interest, even from builders we’ve never talked to before."

Amenities at the community will include a large clubhouse that will be surrounded by a lake, Dunham said. Water features will play prominently in the community layout, including walking trails and nature trails along a Cypress Creek, which runs through the southern portion of the land tract.

The community will also feature a future multischool site for Cy-Fair ISD on 145 acres that will include a stadium and transportation facility.
