Bridgeland is donating a home site for the GHBA fundraiser, the Benefit Homes Project. The home will be built by Perry Homes.

Bridgeland, the Greater Houston Builders Association’s 2013 “Master Planned Development of the Year,” is not only committed to enhancing the lives of home buyers with their growing list of amenities, it also is committed to enhancing the lives of the less fortunate through their contributions to the GHBA’s fundraiser, the Benefit Homes Project.

Howard Hughes Corp., the developer of Bridgeland, has donated four home sites to this construction project during the past few years, to help raise funds for three local charities.

Texas Children’s Cancer Center, the Alzheimer’s Association and HomeAid Houston are all direct beneficiaries of the 35 year old project.

The Howard Hughes Corp.’s latest donation is a home site for the 2015 Benefit Homes Project, where Perry Homes will be the builder. Perry is donating construction management for a home it is building in the Hidden Creek section. Perry Homes will be breaking ground this month.

Each year, two to three homes are built for the project with donated land, materials, labor and services.

The luxurious homes are sold at market value and the majority of the proceeds benefits the three local charities. This fundraiser has raised more than $9 million.

Bridgeland, an 11,400-acre community managed by The Woodlands Development Co., was launched in 2006.

The community devotes 3,000 acres to open space and includes a strong retail component – including a 900-acre town center along the Grand Parkway – in its master plan.

Bridgeland is among the nation’s 20 top-selling communities. This master-planned community is located in Cypress, between U.S. 290 and I-10 on Fry Road and bisected by a segment of Grand Parkway.

“Hidden Creek exemplifies the caliber of Bridgeland,” said Peter Houghton, vice president of master-planned communities. “As northwest Houston experiences significant growth and housing demand increases, our newest section offers buyers a range of options and upscale amenities.”

Hidden Creek will introduce an extensive list of amenities, including Lakeland Village Park, a 20-acre green space that will feature an enclosed dog park, a basketball court, canoe launch and a skate park.

Additional tennis courts, picnic areas, walking trails and pavilions are also planned as well as a splash pad, playground, a year-round heated lap pool and Josey Lake, an expansive waterway that runs along the perimeter of Hidden Creek.
