Newscast Media HOUSTONForty-seven years ago, Coventry Development Corporation purchased 1,800 acres of land and waited for the right job creator. ExxonMobil came along a few years ago, and purchased 386 acres that will house a new community called Springwoods Village. It is scheduled for completion in 2015.


The community is more like a small city near Interstate-45 and the Hardy Toll Road.

"There will be more than 12,000 people working in Springwoods Village," Coventry Executive Vice President Keith Simon said. "There will be a lot of activity in that area in the next 12-18 months. That's a big priority for us to get that going and get those amenities for the people who live and work there."

So far, the construction is going on as scheduled in Springwoods Village. Above is a small section of the villageby Coventry Development Corporation.


Springwoods Village will accommodate a population of 15,000 people and as many as 35,000-45,000 employees upon completion. Commercial development is well underway with the relocation of 10,000 ExxonMobil employees having begun in late March.


According to Community Impact Newspaper, construction is also nearing completion of the first phase of Southwestern Energy's campus, a 10-floor, 580,000-square- foot campus which will be completed by the end if the year.

Included in Springwoods Village, will be Springwoods Town Center that will feature anywhere from 15-20 commercial buildings in a grid pattern with retail and restaurants on the ground floor. About 15 acres of the Town Center will feature the community's plaza, scheduled for completion by the end of 2015.


Of the 1,800 acres, 386 will house buildings and 150 acres will be a "nature preserve" that will include ponds, wetlands, trails, forestry and a fun nature center.


The development is estimated to provide $5.5 billion in annual gross product to Harris County, Houston when completed. 


Under Governor Rick Perry, Texas is the number one job-creation state in America, and is also the 11th largest economy in the world.   Add Comments>>
