Every January, Community Impact Newspaper revisits some of the biggest stories in the Cy-Fair area from the year before with an eye toward what is coming in the year ahead. The following is a sneak peak of one of the many stories that readers will find in the 2018 January issue, which hits mailboxes Jan. 22.
New single-family projects underway or coming soon
What we reported: Approximately 23,000 new single-family homes are projected to be built in the Cy-Fair area by 2026, according to studies by the demographics firm Population and Survey Analysts. The community’s projected five largest single-family developers in that time frame—Bridgeland, Towne Lake, Westfield Village, Canyon Lakes West and Dunham Pointe—could add more than 10,500.
The latest: Home construction progressed at several of the largest master-planned communities in Cy-Fair in 2017, including Bridgeland, where officials broke ground on Parkland Village, the second of four villages that the community will eventually comprise. A few major new projects are expected to move forward over the next few years, including the 1,300-acre Dunham Pointe and a 1,600-acre project being carried out by The Johnson Development Corporation along Hwy. 290 west of the Grand Parkway.
What’s next: Several developers, including Johnson Development and Caldwell Companies, are planning large developments in the Cy-Fair area in 2018 and beyond. Douglas Goff, co-president and chief operating officer of Johnson Development, said the project is expected to be brought to the market in 2020.
Officials with Dunham Pointe said they plan to complete infrastructural construction by the end of 2019. Developer Archie Dunham said construction on retail, residential spaces and infrastructure for the community began roughly five months ago. In the second quarter of 2018, construction will begin on a water plant within the community. Officials are currently working to collaborate with local entities such as the Texas Department of Transportation and the City of Houston to gain permission and meet regulations regarding the creation of new street crossings at Mason Road and Mueschke Road to the south side of Hwy. 290.
