Below is some general information about The Woodlands:
The Woodlands is a master-planned community and a census-designated place (CDP) in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. The population of the CDP was 93,847 in 2010, an increase of 68.6% over its population of 55,649 at the 2000 census. The Woodlands is located primarily in Montgomery County, Texas, with a small portion of the CDP in Harris County. According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 43.9 square miles, of which 43.3 square miles is land and 0.58 square miles is water. The development is situated in a heavily forested area, and much of the community has retained trees for shade and decoration. The terrain is of small rolling hills.
The Woodlands is located 32 miles north of Houston along Interstate 45. Though it began as a suburban development and a bedroom community, it also has attracted corporations to the area. As a result, the area features several corporate campuses, most notably Chevron Phillips, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Woodforest National Bank, Baker Hughes, CB&I, McKesson Corporation, Hewitt Associates, Maersk Line, and Safmarine. The development won a Special Award for Excellence in 1994 from the Urban Land Institute.
The Woodlands was dedicated by George P. Mitchell in 1974, managed by The Woodlands Corporation as an extension of Mitchell Energy & Development. Mitchell, an oil businessman, planned to establish a conference center, hotels, office parks, retail malls, schools, large distribution centers, and golf courses. The house offerings would range from affordable to expensive and large. Bill Schadewald of the Houston Business Journal said that Mitchell wanted the development to “entice city slickers looking for far-flung suburban quality of life.” Schadewald said that local sources stated that the New Town program, a federally funded program, had a “low survival rate” and questioned whether The Woodlands would succeed.
The Woodlands Corporation was acquired on July 31, 1997, by a joint partnership between Morgan Stanley and Crescent Real Estate Equities. In December 2003, The Rouse Company acquired Crescent’s interest in The Woodlands, Rouse was itself sold to General Growth Properties on November 12, 2004. In 2011 The Woodlands was sold to the Howard Hughes Development Corporation.
The tract of land where The Woodlands is situated was previously occupied by the Grogan-Cochran Lumber Mill and are the namesakes for the Grogan’s Mill and Cochran’s Crossing neighborhoods, called “villages”. The original planning of The Woodlands utilized many of the planning concepts and design consultants employed in other well-regarded new communities of that era such as Columbia, Maryland, Irvine Ranch, California and Reston, Virginia. The original development plan included environmental design principles espoused by Ian McHarg, a distinguished landscape architect, teacher and author of the seminal work Design With Nature.
