Katy, TX News (February 20, 2015) – Bridgeland is unveiling its newest community, Hidden Creek, and launching new homesites in its Traditional Neighborhood Design development (TND), Lakeland Heights®, with a grand opening event that offers participants a chance at winning $2,500. From Feb. 23 until March 8, the general public is invited to tour model homes located in the community. Upon completion of visiting all 11 homes, participants will be given a scratch-off ticket valued anywhere from $10 to $100. One lucky winner, selected at random, will walk away with the grand prize of $2,500. Additionally, homebuyers that sign a contract during the grand opening will receive a $1,000 gift card after closing.
Hidden Creek is the largest section to open to date in Bridgeland, a community wholly owned by The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC), with 1,000 homesites set alongside 142 acres of lakes and waterways. New luxury homes range in price from $300,000 to over $1 million and are built by Beazer Homes, Darling Homes, Meritage Homes, Perry Homes, Ryland Homes, Taylor Morrison Homes, Village Builders and Westin Homes.
“We’re excited to show off Hidden Creek,” said Peter Houghton, Vice President of Master Planned Communities for Bridgeland. “The opening of our largest neighborhood comes at an exciting time given the tremendous demand for upscale homes in the northwest Houston area. Bridgeland continues to attract buyers with its wide range of desirable housing, resort-style amenities and top-notch schools.”
In addition to being the newest and largest community within Bridgeland, Hidden Creek will introduce an extensive array of amenities, including Lakeland Village Park, a 20-acre green space that will feature an enclosed dog park, basketball court, canoe launch and skate park. Additional tennis courts, picnic areas, walking trails and pavilions are also planned as well as a new splash pad, playground and heated lap pool, which will be open year-round.
One of the most anticipated amenities in Hidden Creek, Tree House Park, will feature a whimsical, two-story tree house nestled among live oaks that date back to the property’s early rice farming days. Adjacent to the custom-built piece, a boardwalk will hover over an old creek bed and a decomposed granite pathway will wind through the wooded area nearby. The remainder of the park will be left in its natural state, one of Bridgeland’s many efforts to preserve and restore its land, which is located on the Katy Prairie.
Similar to other sections of Lakeland Village, an extensive trail system will be nestled within Hidden Creek, including a 12-foot-wide hike-and-bike trail that will follow along Bridgeland Creek Parkway and Josey Ranch Road. The trail will eventually lead directly to Bridgeland’s Town Center, where the community’s dining, shopping, entertainment and employment venues will be located.
Lakeland Heights, the community’s Traditional Neighborhood Design development (TND), is also included in the tour, as the section features a new townhouse product by Perry Homes and new models from David Weekley Homes and J. Kyle Homes. As a TND development, Lakeland Heights was created to have the aesthetic appeal and accessibility of classic Houston neighborhoods like The Heights and West University, but with the updated amenities of a new community. Consequently, homes are walking distance from parks, recreational facilities and schools. Eventually, residents will also be able to easily access shops and restaurants in Lakeland Village Center, which anchors the 350-home community.
Bridgeland won the 2013 “Master Planned Development of the Year” award from the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA), just one of the more than 100 accolades the community has received. For more information on Bridgeland or Hidden Creek’s Grand Opening, visit www.bridgeland.com.
