The Howard Hughes Corp. announced Dec. 16 that construction of Starling at Bridgeland, a new multifamily housing development in the community, is slated to begin by the end of the month and wrap up by summer 2022.

Officials in a press release said the development will sit on 15.2 acres at the intersection of Bridgeland Creek Parkway and Bridgeland High School Drive in Cypress and be part of Bridgeland Central, the future 900-acre town center.

“We are excited to add another luxury multifamily option to Bridgeland, providing upscale for-lease housing in what will become Bridgeland Central,” said Heath Melton, who serves as the executive vice president of master-planned residential communities for The Howard Hughes Corp. “Our goal is to promote an active, healthy lifestyle and provide our residents with walkable communities in natural settings, with expansive open green space and sought-after urban shopping and dining amenities.”

With 358 units planned, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans will be available, all featuring smart thermostats, keyless entry, quartz countertops, walk-in closets and modern appliances. The plan also includes an indoor fitness center, a shaded outdoor fitness center, a walking and jogging path, and a resort-style pool, according to a press release.

Residents who are building homes in Bridgeland will have the option of signing short-term leases at Starling at Bridgeland, and long-term leases are available for those seeking a low-maintenance, active lifestyles such as college graduates and empty nesters.


This is the second multifamily community for Bridgeland overall. Lakeside Row The Residences opened in early 2020.
