Montgomery County is one of the
fastest growing counties in the United States. Located north
of Houston, the county is home to the beautiful Piney Woods,
and offers fishing, camping, golfing and numerous cultural
events for your enjoyment. Within this pristine environment
are the Parkway Luxury Properties.
The Parkway Luxury Properties offer quick access to the
Hardy Toll Road, I-45, Intercontinental Airport, downtown
Houston and other local amenities such as
Old Town Spring,
The Woodlands Mall, multiple golf courses,
Town Center Business Center,
Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion,
Splash Town Water Park, the
Spring Creek Greenway Gateway Complex &
Peckinpaugh Nature Preserve , and much more.
The neighborhood boundaries can be defined as The Woodlands
to the north, the Harris County/Montgomery County line to
the south, IH 45 to the west, and FM 1314 to the east.
A major development in the
immediate vicinity of the subject is the construction by
Exxon Mobil of a sprawling office campus south of The
Woodlands, a master-planned community on 385 acres near the
intersection of I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road. The
Irving-based oil giant, which announced the project in June
of 2011, said the new complex would allow 8,000 employees
scattered throughout Houston to work in one place.
The new campus could get even bigger if Exxon Mobil decides
to relocate workers from other parts of the country —
particularly 2,500 employees from its Fairfax, Va., offices.
Spokesman Alan Jeffers said the company is studying that
Exxon Mobil's new campus, however, could help trigger a
north side boom among other types of real estate
development. Some of it has already started.
Last fall, developers said they would build an 1,800-acre
master-planned community called Springwoods Village near the
Exxon Mobil campus. Over the next several years, as many as
5,000 homes are expected to be built, as well as 8.5 million
square feet of commercial office space and 1.2 million
square feet of retail space, Coventry Development Corp.
said. Galatas said the area is attractive because of good
schools, proximity to Bush Intercontinental Airport and
highway systems, and a supportive local government
Another recent development in
the area is the Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center located
just across Riley Fuzzell Road from the subject site. The
11,000 square foot facility contains a nature center,
community center, the Sheriff’s Patrol District II Office,
pavilion with restrooms, and nature trails.
The $2.2 million dollar project was funded with monies from
the sale of the Rayford Road Community Center and a Texas
Parks & Wildlife grant. The complex is situated on an 11.6
acre site donated by Midway Spring Trails Partners, L.P.,
the Houston based developer of the adjacent Spring Trails
master planned community. The developer donated the land to
the Spring Creek Greenway Foundation in memory of Plato
Pappas. The Foundation donated the land to the County.
The site also includes a new parking area and trailhead
entrance to the Peckinpaugh Preserve. The new trailhead will
make it easier to access this beautiful nature area. The old
trailhead at the end of Old Riley Fuzzel Road is also being
improved to better accommodate equestrians, canoeists, and

Grand Parkway – Segment G
It is noted that a section of the Grand Parkway is proposed
to extend along Riley Fuzzell Road. Segment G is a proposed
13.7-mile, four-lane, controlled access toll road with
intermittent frontage roads from IH 45(N) (North Freeway) to
US 59(N) (Eastex Freeway) through Harris and Montgomery
For Segment G, the alternative alignments were developed
within the project area to fulfill the need for and purpose
of the project, to minimize potential environmental impacts,
and to respond to public/landowner and resource agency
comments. Links to the schedule of work for the Grand
Parkway project, an aerial map showing Segment G, and a
current map of the site area can be found below.
