A team of developers presented plans for a mixed-use planned development near the northwest corner of FM 2920 and FM 2978 to the Tomball City Council. It is seeking approval from Tomball’s Planning and Zoning Commission to rezone the property from single-family housing to a planned development.

With less than two years remaining until the completion of the 38 miles of the Grand Parkway from Hwy. 290 to Hwy. 59, construction is well underway at Hwy. 249 and I-45, as well as other existing major thoroughfares.

 A local developer recently broke ground two miles south of the Woodlands on a 25-acre property he purchased two years ago in anticipation of a perfect storm.

That perfect storm involves thousands of Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) employees relocating to a new campus near the Woodlands combined with a historically low inventory of single-family homes.

Local chambers of commerce and economic development groups believe 2014 will be a strong year for communities in the Tomball, Spring and Klein areas.

The communities, which are bracketed between FM 2920, Texas 249, FM 1960 and Interstate 45, are in the midst of massive growth and development, which is being fed by the development of the Grand Parkway and the transformation of Texas 249 into the Tomball Tollway.


In Tomball, the development has been steady, especially with mobility and the recent construction start of the Tomball Tollway in October.
