The Art of Living
Like an artist's pallette, The Woodlands offers a beautiful montage of living at its best. Magnificent homes, winding nature trails, parks, shops and places of worship are carefully arranged in this lively and colorful panorama. In addition to being a scenic masterpiece, the native forests nurture higher values than those that are purely tangible. It's the intangibles like human services, religious diversity, community spirit, healthcare and lifelong learning that are the corenerstones of community building. Those have been the guiding principles of The Woodlands since its founding more than 36 years ago.
Whether you're looking for a family home near an elementary school, a trendy loft on The Waterway, or a magnificent estate on the golf course, you can find the ideal home for your family, lifestyle and budget in The Woodlands. The Woodlands features a wide selection of builders and home styles, a diverse portfolio of architecture, and a choise of neighborhood settings. When you explore the possibilities in The Woodlands, you'll discover what "coming home" really means.
The Woodlands Homefinder Center is a great place to start your search for a home in our community. You'll find your photographic displays, topographic maps and friendly representatives to answer your questions and provide directions to sales centers in your price range.
It's located at 2000 Woodlands Parkway and it's open almost every day of the year.
Designed with Nature...
With all the diversity in The Woodlands – people, homes, businesses, religions, things to do – there is one central idea that holds the fabric of community tightly woven together, and that is a love of nature. When residents are asked about their favorite things in their community, the answer is inevitably "the trees" or "the forest." What began as a vision of The Woodlands' founder, George P. Mitchell, is now an enduring testament to designing with nature. After 36 years of growth, The Woodlands remains true to its name with more than 6,000 acres preserved as green space, and a plan for 8,000 acres to be "green" when the community is completed.
Where Business Lives Well...
One of the primary goals in developing The Woodlands was to create jobs for residents and provide a strong economic foundation for the community. Located just 27 miles from downtown Houston, the country's fourth largest city, The Woodlands is a major work center with 1,700 employers and more than 47,000 employees. It is home to companies such as Andarko Petroleum, Aon Hewitt, Baker Hughes, Chevron Philips, Fox Networks Group, Huntsman and US Oncology.
Employers chose The Woodlands for themselves and their employees because of the quality of life, excellent educational opportunities, close proximity to George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and the superior reputation of the community as a destination for business, travel and commerce.
