Growing up North, I’ve always been fond of residential suburbia, which greatly defers from subdivision living encountered upon moving to newer and expanding locations, such as, Houston. However, the growing trend in housing is “master planned communities”, which according to Chris Fiscelli writing in Reason Public Policy Institute, are “suburbia’s response to the boring, cookie-cutter, detached globs of housing that still make up much of America’s suburban nation”. The distinguishing markers of a master planned community are as follows; golf courses, expansive parks with bike paths and jogging trails, and even community clubhouses with recreational facilities, such as, pools and spas. So it seems that just as Americans are demanding more amenities and luxuries in their everyday products i.e.; cars, cell phones, we are now requiring our neighborhoods to supply an abundance of recreational amenities from which to choose but how do you know which community works best for you and your family?
Bridgeland is an 11,400 acre master-planned community in northwest Houston, which includes 3,000 acres of open space. Bridgeland’s appeal lies in its fusion of outdoor amenities and its award winning schools in Cypress Fairbanks ISD. Offering 60 miles of interconnecting trails, Bridgeland connects community residents from border to border. Breathtaking views, courtesy of over 900 acres of Bridgeland lakes and waterways along with vast outdoor space won’t be diminished by unsightly power lines because Bridgeland has buried all underground power lines. Most appealing to the environmentally friendly residents is Bridgeland’s self-sustaining irrigation; it is the first community in Houston to embrace the ‘Purple Pipe’ system, which uses recycled water from Bridgeland lakes to irrigate all common areas. Bridgeland offers a variety of housing options with prices ranging from the $160s to custom home designs over $1 million. These are just some of the qualities that have earned Bridgeland the title of #1 master-planned community in the nation by the National Association of Home Builders.
