Five new tenants have been released for Bridgeland's Lakeland Village Center, the 20-acre mixed-use development under construction on Fry Road south of Bridgeland Creek Parkway in Cypress.

Officials with Howard Hughes Corporation made the announcement at a March 24 ribbon cutting for the recently opened CVS/pharmacy, which serves as the center's anchor tenant. The five new tenants are Marble Slab Creamery, Active Life Dentistry, Nails of America, RE/MAX Professional Group and the Bridgeland Homeowner's Association.

"The Lakeland Village Center fulfills the first leg of a vision we rolled out over 10 years ago," said Peter Houghton, vice president of master-planned communities for Bridgeland. "It really does represent that vision—not of a strip center, but of a village center."

Construction on Lakeland Village Center will wrap up within the next few weeks, Houghton said. Upon completion, it will feature 84,000-square-feet of retail, restaurant and professional and medical office space. The center is within walking distance of the Lakeland Heights neighborhood, and the design incorporates a central Main Street, which adds to the village center aesthetic, Houghton said. Architectural elements include landscaping, brick detail, overhanging streetlights and expansive sidewalks.

Tenants will begin moving in around mid-summer, according to Rip Reynolds, vice president of leasing and commercial land with Howard Hughes.

"We have a few nice restaurant spaces with outdoor seating, and we're working with quite a few restaurants right now," Reynolds said. "We're being very selective with who we bring in, but we expect to make some more tenant announcements in the near future."

Work will begin on the second phase of Lakeland Village Center as the first phase fills up with tenants, Reynolds said. The second phase will be located just east of the first, alongside a nearby lake, which could be used to create a boardwalk atmosphere with waterside dining, he said.

Lakeland Village Center is one of four centers being planned throughout the Bridgeland area, Houghton said. Construction will begin on the next one—which will be located at the intersection of Fry and Tuckerton roads—within the next 2-3 years, he said.

"The design of the next center is still under discussion, but each center is going to have it's own character," Houghton said. "There's a lot of planning still to do there, but we're hoping to bring in grocery store anchors at some of these future centers as well."
