Housing is expanding yet again in Northwest Harris County, this time with a new community called Parkland, which is located in Bridgeland. This will be the second village to become a part of the Bridgeland real estate market and it is expected to host its grand opening sometime in 2018. Let’s take a look at everything that is known about this new master planned community.
Parkland Facts and Figures
According to the builders of this new community – the Howard Hughes Corp – the vision for Parkland is to ensure that future residents feel as if they live within a park. To do this, the new village will have a park system inspired by Boston’s Emerald Necklace — essentially a linear park system that is interconnected throughout the village. There are also several other planned amenities including a 25-acre park that has several attractions such as a pool, fitness center, event hall, playground and sports courts.
Currently, construction of new homes is already underway within the first four sections of the new village. These four sections are expected to feature 200 homes when complete. What’s more, some of these homes have already been sold and there is a model home park in development elsewhere in the village to help encourage even more sales.
When Parkland is complete, it should span roughly 1,200 acres, 350 acres of which will be devoted to park space. Residential areas will boast at least 3,100 homes, with prices ranging between an estimated $200,000 to more than $1 million.
About Parkland’s Future Homes
For buyers and investors that are curious about the kind of real estate that Parkland will offer, the builders say that the focus will be on the prairie style which was first pioneered by Frank Lloyd Wright. Though homes will come in different shapes and sizes to suit a variety of tastes, the community will overall follow the Prairie School of Architecture in that homes will be interconnected with nature as much as possible. To this end, one of the primary goals for the new community is to make sure that each home sits no farther than 1/4-mile away from a park.
Aside from park space, there is also the potential for large backyards. Right now, lots are planned in several shapes and sizes, ranging between 40-feet by 120-feet all the way up to 100-feet by 160-feet, or roughly a quarter of an acre.
Buyers and investors that are interested in a piece of Parkland real estate would be wise to act soon. With homes already selling, it is very likely that property in this community will be snapped up quickly as the project nears completion.
