Lake Woodlands

Man-made Lake

Lake Woodlands is a sanctuary within the community of The Woodlands. Just off Lake Woodlands Drive and North Shore Park, with easy access from I-45, this picturesque, man-made lake is situated. Nature lovers and water enthusiasts can enjoy sports on the lake year-round. lake-woodlands

Lake Woodlands, founded in 1984, functions as a recreational residential and business neighborhood for the surrounding Woodlands. Neighborhoods surround the east and west coasts, while large corporate campuses, shopping centers, and multi-family projects are strategically clustered along the shores.

Ziegler Cooper Architects planned some of these surrounding improvements and the Hughes Landing master plan. Research Forest Lakeside, nestled between Lake Woodlands’ eastern shore and plentiful natural groves, is a top 11-building, 77-acre commercial office development containing a total of 1,615,198 square feet of office space, 36,552 square feet of retail, and 4,694 parking spaces.

The plan provides full versatility for multiple tenants and single company occupancy, leveraging the many natural qualities of the property. The newest 150,000-square-foot office building on the former Chicago Bridge & Iron Corporate Headquarters campus, now rebranded as Hughes Landing’s Lake Front North, was completed in August 2014, facing northern lakeshore.

Offering exclusive lifestyle enhancement opportunities for workers and guests, the campus was thoughtfully built with an exit strategy in mind, thus perfectly meeting the needs and desires of our client. The location and spacing of buildings accommodate the separation of individual buildings from corporate-owned operations, leaving space for the potential separate lobby and multi-tenant entrance.

East Shore Place is a 53,000-square-foot mixed-use property situated at the entrance to the wealthy East Shore community on Grogans Mill Road and East Shore Drive’s northwest corner. This two-level expansion provides grocery, restaurant, and ground-floor professional space, and second-floor specialty office and medical space. This new center is conveniently a few minutes’ walks from Lake Woodlands shores.

Located in the 66-acre mixed-use Hughes Landing development nestled between Town Center and Lake Woodlands Research Forest, One Lake’s Edge, is an 825,000-square-foot, 390-unit multi-family development. The building boasts panoramic lake views and is just steps from Hughes Landing’s shopping, dining, and entertainment. lake-woodlands
