Town Center/The Waterway
Town Center is the 1,000-acre ‘downtown’ of The Woodlands and a regional destination for shopping, dining, commerce, urban living and entertainment. The Woodlands Mall, Market Street, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and numerous stand-alone shops and restaurants comprise the retail hub of this thriving environment. Newly developed office buildings bring businesses that are attracted to the appeal of living and working in The Woodlands.
The Woodlands Waterway®, a 1.4-mile long water amenity, transportation corridor and linear park, links all of these activities into a carefully-planned 24/7 dynamic, urban atmosphere that is perfectly in sync with its natural surroundings. Waterway Cruisers, trolleys, bicycles and pedestrian walkways allow visitors to leave their cars and step into a relaxing, attractive cultural center all connected by the cooling presence of water.
The centerpiece of The Waterway is Waterway Square, a one-acre plaza with multiple water features including a 120-foot long terraced, boomer jets that spray water 75-feet into the air, and fountains choreographed to music and accented with colored lights. A children's interactive fountain set into a mosaic work of art adds to the festive ambiance at this urban venue.
Residents make their homes along The Waterway at one of several urban communities – the stately brick homes of The Remington Brownstones; the edgy, urban Waterway Lofts, and the townhomes of Waterway Village. The Boardwalk at Town Center, a 450-residence luxury apartment community, features sophisticated touches like rooftop gardens overlooking The Waterway and adjoining Riva Row Park with kayak and canoe rentals. The Millennium Waterway Ave, a new 393-unit luxury apartment community in The Waterway Square District in Houston's first LEED Certified Silver multifamily property.
