Bridgeland, a master-planned community in Cypress, will be receiving its first multifamily development this year, complete with amenities for the whole family including a wide-open lake and other offerings in the Bridgeland community.

Lakeside Row The Residences will be available for pre-leasing starting July, with residents expected to move in by the fall according to a press release from the Howard Hughes Corporation, the developer of Bridgeland. The development will have 312 units as well as townhouses and sits next to Josey Lake, a large lake amenity for the Bridgeland community with a birding tower and kayaks available for check-out.

Jim Carman, senior vice president of commercial development for the Howard Hughes Corporation, said all units have home automation technology for house functions, such as lights and thermostats, that can be accessed through the phone or Amazon Alexa.

“The on-site amenities are tremendous, and includes a pet park, children’s play area, fitness facility and a gorgeous pool overlooking Josey Lake, to name a few,” he said. “Residents will be able to check-out kayaks to enjoy on the lake. Some of the unit finishes and features are unique to the market, including attached garages, fenced yards and fireplaces.”

Lakeside Row is also designed to match the current aesthetic of the Bridgeland community, Carman said.

“Architecturally, we have incorporated the Craftsman design, which is prevalent in Lakeland Village, where this project is located,” he said. “We continue to utilize natural materials, like wood and stone, consistent with the neighborhood.”

Like the rest of Bridgeland, Lakeside Row is within the Cy-Fair ISD attendance boundaries. Carman said the development will be next to the future town center, Bridgeland Central, planned for the neighborhood and has several incentives for current residents and future residents looking to make the move.

“We will be providing short-term leases and incentives for those buying or building a new home in Bridgeland,” he said. “Lakeside Row will offer additional housing options, that complement the variety of residential selections in Bridgeland. This is similar to the residential model in our sister community, The Woodlands.”

Bridgeland is looking to expand even further within its boundaries, particularly to the west. Carman said more infrastructure is being built and secured for future projects. Heath Melton, vice president of master-planned communities for Howard Hughes Corporation, said the corporation is looking to expand slowly with drainage projects first.

“We’ll start some early infrastructure projects more from a drainage standpoint, kind of in the northwest quadrant, up by Grand Parkway and Louetta Road,” Melton said. “Hopefully within the next two or three years the market’s going to be ready for some early elements of that, whether it be more of a lifestyle center, but that’s something we’re looking at from a forward planning process.”
