Hi there I don't know if you're still considering a move to Bridgeland but if you are, I would highly recommend it.

First of all let me say it is extremely close to where I work so I don't have the commute problem that many talk of, if I did I may have a very different outlook.

I moved here with my family from Scotland just over a year ago and when we were looking where to stay, we looked at Tomball area, Fairfield, but ultimately decided on Bridgeland, purely because we knew our kids would not need to change school after a year when we moved out of leased house into our own home.

In making that decision we trully lucked out, the quality of life here is something we never thought we could have. There is a great feeling of open space, plenty of nature trails, parks for the kids, and lakes which can be used for recreations such as canoeing our fishing. We weren't really outdoor people before we moved here, we are now.

During the summer the swimming pool complex opens and feels to us like as good as anything you find in a high end holiday resort. Also the place always looks great, there's a team of gardeners constantly working to ensure the landscaping is in perfect condition.

Another thing we like is the fact it is so new and so far only a fraction developed, we feel like we're kind of in at the start of something exciting and new. We just built a home in a new section and moved in a month ago, when we signed for the house there was only 3 other occupied houses in the street, now there's over a dozen in that short time and they're sold before they're finished, so the builders are struggling to keep up with the demand. All positive stuff in my opinion.

Hope this helps a little and feel free to contact me if you need to pick my brains further.

Cheers,
Craig.

Here is an article about the projected growth in the Cy-Fair - Bridgleland area. The Grand Parkway should be a HUGE boost to Bridgeland.

This will alleviate a substantial amount of traffic on HWY 290. This master planned development has seen substantial growth ever since The Howard Hughes Corporation took over. The best thing about this community is its amenities, but above all the expansion of Grand Parkway in the area. What size product are you looking into? My buyers purchased in the 80'' product with Partners in building and my other client with Highland Homes in the 65'' product both builders are great. The Craftsman, English Tudor, Classical and French style development towards the front of the community off of FRY Rd isn't to great in my opinion, but it seems to be doing okay.

Yeah, I we have seen the work that they are doing. Cypress Creek Lakes has also been doing a lot of digging. I guess that they are starting up the new Rec Center.

They are and just recently bricked the lake area on Fry road with their logo. Some buyers chosse Cypress Creek lakes for its value in price per sq ft vs Bridgeland or Towne Lake. My client purchased an inventory home last month with Perry Homes and was able to move in with 2 1/2 weeks.
