Howard Hughes Corp. announced May 21 that Cy-Fair ISD officials finalized the purchase of a 16.7-acre plot of land in the master-planned community for Elementary School No. 57, which is slated to open in time for the 2022-23 academic year.

Construction of the 120,000-square-foot, two-story campus is included in the $1.2 billion bond passed in 2014. The school will be located off Tuckerton Road near Fry Road in the Parkland Village neighborhood, which is expected to accommodate 65,000 residents upon build-out.

“We have worked closely with district leaders to ensure the needs of our residents, many of which are family units, are not only met but exceeded. The new elementary school will serve to enhance Bridgeland’s already strong network of schools,” said Heath Melton, executive vice president of master-planned community residential services at Howard Hughes, in a statement.

No. 57 will be the fourth CFISD campus in Bridgeland, following Bridgeland High School and Pope and Wells elementary schools. A middle school is slated to open in 2024, according to officials.

Texas-IBI Group Inc. will design the campus before the district goes out for construction proposals, according to a press release.
