Primrose School Set to Launch Fourth Educational Program in The Woodlands®


The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) announces plans for the addition of Primrose School in Hughes Landing®, a dynamic mixed-use development on Lake Woodlands. The 10,000-square-foot building and playground will be located on Hughes Landing Blvd., adjacent to the Two Hughes Landing and Three Hughes Landing parking garages.

Primrose is an accredited early childhood education school that serves children from six weeks to kindergarten and offers summer camps. Construction on Primrose School is expected to begin within the next 60 days with completion slated for 2019.

Don and Arlena McLaughlin, owners of Primrose Schools, will operate the newest Primrose School in Hughes Landing. This will be the McLaughlin’s fourth educational childcare franchise in The Woodlands® and seventh location overall.  The other three schools in The Woodlands are situated in the Villages of Sterling Ridge, College Park and Creekside Park®, with three additional schools in Spring. 

"Primrose is committed to providing a valuable education while building strong, trusted relationships,” said Arlena McLaughlin. "We are delighted to add a location in The Woodlands in Hughes Landing near the beautiful 200-acre Lake Woodlands, as that area is flourishing with a diverse array of residents and professionals in need of safe, nurturing quality care for their young children to thrive.”

Rip Reynolds, Vice President of Leasing and Commercial Land for The Howard Hughes Corporation added,"As an award-winning urban development, the unique and acclaimed design of Hughes Landing on Lake Woodlands provides a walkable destination where office tenants, residents and visitors can live, work, play and discover. Hughes Landing was originally designed to accommodate an early childhood education facility to serve the needs of our residents and the employees of our office, retail and restaurant tenants. Primrose School is a well-known and highly respected educational establishment and is an excellent fit for Hughes Landing. We have enjoyed our continued partnership with Primrose and the McLaughlin’s through the years.”

Hughes Landing is one of Houston’s premier mixed-use urban centers. Along with retail and dining, Hughes Landing features multifamily living at One Lakes Edge® with an additional multifamily project underway; five Class A office buildings with multiple buildings planned; and an Embassy Suites by Hilton. The lifestyle intersection also highlights entertainment at Hughes Landing Park, Boardwalk and Band Shell; Hughes Landing Dog Park; Lakes Edge Boat House; and public art.
