The Woodlands

Planned for an exquisite lifestyle.

Welcome to The Woodlands

​​​​​​​Set in and around 28,000 acres of tree-filled land, The Woodlands is a gorgeous master-planned community and census-designated place just 30 minutes from Houston, Texas. Designed with excellence in mind, this thriving community comes outfitted with the best of amenities, natural scenery, shopping, nightlife, dining, and so much more. Its proximity to Houston means it’s full of employment opportunities in addition to being a stunning suburban area.

The Woodlands was created by George Mitchell, owner of Mitchell Energy & Development, and is run by The Woodlands Corporation, which acted as an extension of that same company. Though the intent was simply to make a halcyon urban utopia, this residential community quickly garnered the interest of major corporations, many of whom—such as Chevron Phillips, Huntsman Corporation, Hewitt Associates, and others—decided to set up operations that contributed to the area’s commercial growth.

The Woodlands offers superb renting opportunities. Their abundant luxury apartments combine the convenience of living within walking distance of dining, shopping, and entertainment options with lavish amenities like resort-style pools, upscale fitness facilities, sky lounges, and waterfront views. However, the real selling point of The Woodlands is its incredible homes. With the opportunity to pick from a host of excellent architects and model house options that come in a variety of price ranges, all set in gated communities among wooded and verdant beauty, it isn’t hard to see why more than 70% of the population is made up of homeowners.
