CYPRESS, Texas – Lakeland Village Center, the first commercial development in Bridgeland, a master planned community in Cypress, north of Houston, has broken ground.
Set on 20 acres along Fry Road, Lakeland Village Center will include 84,000 square feet of mixed-use development in phase one consisting of retail, restaurants, and professional and medical offices.
Developing by the Howard Hughes Corp., Bridgeland is an 11,400-acre master planned community in Cypress, located between U.S. 290 and Interstate 10 on Fry Road and bisected by a segment of the Grand Parkway. Bridgeland is aanaged by The Woodlands Development Co., an arm of Howard Hughes.
A 15,300-square-foot CVS/pharmacy is part of the new retail project. First Hartford Realty-Preferred Developer represented CVS/pharmacy®. Rip Reynolds, Director of Leasing & Commercial Land for The Howard Hughes Corporation, and the J. Beard Real Estate Company represented Bridgeland in the lease transaction. Both Rip Reynolds and Zak Hudnall, Leasing Associate for The Woodlands Development Company, handle leasing for Lakeland Village Center.
Lakeland Village Center is within walking distance for residents of Lakeland Heights®, a traditional neighborhood development in Bridgeland, and provides easy accessibility for those in the remaining enclaves of Lakeland Village, the first of four villages planned for the community.
“We are excited to announce Lakeland Village Center as the inaugural commercial venture in Bridgeland. The new village can be accessed through Fry Road and is in close proximity to the Grand Parkway and Highway 290,” said Paul Layne, Executive Vice President of Master Planned Communities for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “Having CVS/pharmacy as the anchor will offer even more convenience to residents and nearby communities.”
