Many of these commercial or residential projects were announced or in progress last year. Here is what is happening now.






  1. Cypress Crossing will open in early 2018 at Hwy. 290 and FM 1960. Cypress Crossing will open in early 2018 at Hwy. 290 and FM 1960.[/caption]

    In late 2016, Caldwell Companies broke ground on a new development located at Hwy. 290 and FM 1960. Cypress Crossing will be two retail centers totaling nearly 20,000 square feet. Construction on the property is slated to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017, and retailers will begin opening in early 2018. Cypress Crossing will offer hotel, restaurant, retail and office space in the heart of Northwest Houston.

  2. The developer behind Stone Creek Ranch in Cy-Fair announced a new housing development, Dunham Pointe, in November. With construction starting in May or June,  Archie Dunham, chairman emeritus of Chesapeake Energy and former CEO of Conoco Inc., will bring between 2,500 and 3,000 homes to a 1,300-acre plot of land south of Hwy. 290 between Mueschke and Mason roads.

  3. The 573,460-square-foot Bridgeland High School is under construction at the Grand Parkway and Mason Road and is slated to open this summer. Roy Sprague, Cy-Fair ISD associate superintendent of facilities, construction and support services, said he does not anticipate any issues hindering work crews from opening the school for the 2017-18 academic year. After awarding the contract in September, construction commenced Oct. 1. An elementary school named for Jim and Pam Wells will open on the same date as part of an educational village.

    Luxury fitness center VillaSport will open a 130,000-square-foot facility at 12951 Barker Cypress Road, Cypress, in the spring. The company opened its first Houston club in The Woodlands in 2009. The Cypress site will bring 180 weekly fitness classes, spa services, swimming pools, a cardio center, weight equipment and an NBA hardwood court.

  5. Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department’s Fire Station No. 13 is coming to Bridgeland. Because contractor JE Dunn Construction will be working on three other stations throughout the year and the roadway on-site will need to be extended, the facility will likely not be completed until 2018.

  6. Cypress Assistance Ministries will move into a new building on Cypress North Houston Road near Barwood Bend Drive. Construction has yet to begin, and it will likely be 2018 before the staff moves in, Director of Development Janet Knott said. The building will be the headquarters for client assistance, the food pantry, job counseling, the resale store and other programming.

  7. Houston’s First Baptist Church, which has been meeting at Smith Middle School since 2013, started building a new 100,000-square-foot facility at 11011 Mason Road, Cypress, in April. Officials plan to move in to the new building in June and hold a grand opening to the public in August.

  8. Daikin Industries is nearing completion on a $417 million, 4 million-square-foot manufacturing campus northwest of Houston in Hockley. Originally set to be completed by the end of 2016, the project is now expected to be finished early this year. In 2016, officials announced the plant, which will be used to build heating, cooling and refrigerant products and will create 5,000 jobs, about 1,000 more jobs than originally expected. The facility will feature a 1.8 million-square-foot distribution center,1.7 million square feet of manufacturing space and 400,000 square feet of lab and office space.

  9. Work has been progressing on a FedEx Ground distribution center since it was announced in February. The 800,000- square-foot center will create 400 jobs and is expected to be completed in August, officials said. It will process 22,500 packages per day when it opens but could handle as many as 1 million per day when fully staffed in 2022, which would make it the fastest hub in the nation.

  10. Preliminary work has begun on the 1,800-acre Parkland Village, the second of four planned neighborhoods in the Bridgeland master-planned community. The new section is located south of the existing Lakeland Village, and homes will eventually be constructed on land east of the Grand Parkway. The village will include 3,000 homes at build-out, the first of which should be completed in 2017, as well as more green space and park amenities. Officials are also working on landscaping Josey Lake, which serves as a border between Parkland and Lakeland villages. Amenities, such as a zip line and birding tower, will not be open until 2018.

  11. The finishing touches are being installed on new active adult community Solea Copperfield, where the first round of tenants are expected to move in Feb. 15. The community, which caters to adults age 55 and older, is being developed by Stream Realty Partners and will feature 129 one- and two-bedroom condominium units ranging from 750 to 1,365 square feet. The community will also feature a clubhouse, exercise rooms, business center, library, swimming pool and fenced-in dog park.

  12. The new Cypress campus of Second Baptist Church opened in October at 29900 Hwy. 290, Cypress, near the Grand Parkway. The new facility features an auditorium-style worship center as well as an educational center for children from birth through 18 years of age. Second Baptist formerly held services for Cypress members at the Berry Center.
