Our Woodlands. Our Future.


The Woodlands has been one of the best-selling master planned communities in Texas and in the nation. Residential units were once expected to reach near 70,000 units. There was a decrease in residential units affected by both the 1980s economic crisis and September 11, 2001. Currently, over 51,000 residential units are expected upon completion of The Woodlands, and projections are running as scheduled. The graph above was plotted using data from The Woodlands Community Facts.
