Lakes At Creekside

Lakes at Creekside is being developed by J. Alan Kent Development. The first model homes opened this month at Lakes at Creekside, which is currently underway off Kuykendahl and Hufsmith and is zoned for Tomball Independent School District.

“We play off The Woodlands. We abut The Woodlands on most of our developments that we do in the north part of town. There are a lot of people who love The Woodlands; it’s a great community. But there are a lot of people who don’t want to necessarily live in The Woodlands, so we give them an alternative,” said Alan Kent, founder of J. Alan Kent Development.

The developer completed its first phase of development last year when it developed and sold 148 lots to three homebuilders, M/I Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Village Builders. The price point for a home at Lakes at Creekside varies greatly, ranging from $300,000 to more than $1 million.

At the master-planned community’s completion, Lakes at Creekside will feature 600 single-family homes, eight lakes, a recreation center, a park, trails, sidewalks, splash pad and a pool. The development, as of now, is strictly residential with no mixed-use or commercial real estate planned. Although no commercial development is planned, residents will be close enough to amenities in The Woodlands Village of Creekside Park , which features several restaurants, a new H-E-B and a Walgreens off Kuykendahl.

The community is expected to be fully developed within four years, Kent said. “We’ve seen a great uptick in our traffic, especially for the last quarter for our homes that are $1 million and up. We had two or three lookers a weekend. Now, we have 14 or 15 people that are real buyers that are looking to buy a house,” Kent said. “If you’ve driven the Grand Parkway to get to here, it makes it a lot easier for someone from the Katy area or literally any area to get north of town now.”

For Will Holder, president of Trendmaker Homes and a homebuilder in The Woodlands, the decision to build in the community of Lakes at Creekside was easy. The importance of the Grand Parkway, the Exxon Mobil move to Springwoods and the economic growth in south Montgomery County can’t be understated in the decision to develop Lakes at Creekside, the plans for which were set in motion less than four years ago. Increased mobility in and out of the area and jobs were highly attractive, and offering residents high-end amenities via The Woodlands just a stone’s throw away was also a major selling point.

Trendmaker expects to build 23 homes during the first phase of Lakes at Creekside’s development. Its first model home will open in April, and homes will sit in the $500,000 range.

“Wherever transportation corridors have been developed in Houston, these are the life blood of residential communities. … People will migrate to these areas where they have great access,” Holder said. “Additionally, The Woodlands itself has its own gravitational pull – the retail, the job base, dining – every component of what you want for a place to live.”

With The Woodlands nearing residential build-out, selling off the last few hundred lots to homebuilders by 2017 or 2018, developers and homebuilders on the outskirts of The Woodlands feel like they can finally take a breath and work on other projects.

“The Woodlands has, for a very long time, sucked the oxygen out of the area, and projects like Lakes at Creekside are just a natural process for projects around a master-planned community,” Holder said. “When The Woodlands Development Company winds down and that mantle is picked up by surrounding projects, we have to take a long-term look and we want to be up there and have a presence.”

The Woodlands Mitchell Island



Named for George Mitchell, the late founder of The Woodlands, Mitchell Island will be the most exclusive address in The Woodlands.

Located on the eastern edge of Lake Woodlands, Mitchell Island was created in 1985 with plans to locate the corporate headquarters of Mitchell Energy and Development on the island. This plan was abandoned in 2005.

When The Woodlands East Shore was first announced in the 2000’s, the developers were going to turn the island into an exclusive clubhouse for East Shore residents. This plan for Mitchell Island changed again with the announcement of ExxonMobil’s new campus being built south of The Woodlands for 10,000 employees plus the explosive growth of Hughes Landing.

While the size of the island has been reported from various sources as 19, 20, and 22 acres, we know there will be approximately 19 one-acre lots and the bidding will begin at $1.5 million to $3 million per lot depending upon location on the island. As in every neighborhood in The Woodlands, there will be minimum and maximum square footage for the homes built on the lots.

Construction of the bridge to the island is almost complete. A pier is under construction that will eventually dock boats that will shuttle residents to Hughes Landing.
