Welcome to the world-class region.
Everyone's heard the stereotype: it's all cowboys, cactus and cattle. While those Texas roots are strong, Houston will surprise you with everything it has to offer. The ten-county region is the largest city not only in Texas, but the whole Southern United States. Here the grass is green, landscaping is lush and the tree canopy is thick and widespread. It's the perfect mix of Southern greenery and urban sophistication. Known as the Bayou City, the Houston metro area—the sixth largest in the nation—is criss-crossed by a number of bayous, many of them flowing into Buffalo Bayou, the site of the city's birthplace in the downtown area.

BRIDGELAND® WINS GOLD AWARD FOR “BEST TV COMMERCIAL” AT THE NATIONALS 2016 COMPETITION
Newest Bridgeland TV Commercial Highlights Abundant Community Amenities and Lifestyle
CYPRESS, TX (February 9, 2016) – Topping both national and international entrants, Bridgeland® received the Gold Award for “Best TV Commercial” at The Nationals 2016 Gold Awards. Presented by the National Sales & Marketing Council of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), The Nationals pay tribute to superior new home sales and marketing achievements. Gold Award winners were announced on Tuesday, January 19 during NAHB’s International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
“We are pleased to win such a prestigious honor for our television commercial which depicts the wonderful amenities found in Bridgeland,” said Peter Houghton, Vice President of Master Planned Communities for Bridgeland. “We continue to create a top-notch community, and it is gratifying to see those efforts recognized within the industry.”
With striking cinematography and an unforgettable sound track, the newest television commercial for Bridgeland, “We’ve Arrived”, highlights the amenity-rich and nature-oriented lifestyle for which the 11,400-acre master planned community has become known. With more than 3,000 acres dedicated to lakes, trails and parks, Bridgeland offers the tranquility of a seemingly untouched natural environment while also providing the convenience of modern facilities.
The commercial debuted in February 2015 to coincide with the grand opening of Hidden Creek, the largest section built within Bridgeland thus far with 1,000 homesites set along 142 acres of lakes and waterways. “We’ve Arrived” was a collaboration from the master planned community marketing team and John Manlove Marketing & Communications. Alongside the vibrant footage shot on-site by Kerry Shaw Brown of LA.B Films, the team worked with Pure Evil Music to develop an original song that would resonate with target audiences. After auditioning multiple singers, the team selected 24-year-old, Dallas-based performer Riley Deaver.
Immediately following the commercial’s debut, viewers began to inquire about downloading the song. As a result, “We’ve Arrived,” featuring Riley Deaver by Hook Society is now available on iTunes and all other major digital music sites.
In October 2015, Bridgeland won eight prestigious awards at the Houston’s Best PRISM Awards in several developer categories including “Best TV Commercial,” “Best Event of the Year,” “Best Brochure,” “Best Marketing Campaign,” “Best Print Ad,” “Best Interactive Point of Sale” and “Best Website” as well as the “Grand Award Promotion” recognizing the developer who won the most categories for their advertising efforts. Houston’s Best PRISM Awards are hosted by Greater Houston Builders Association.
Bridgeland is the largest community development in northwest Houston that thrives on its balance in nature. The community has dedicated over 3,000 acres to lakes, trails and parks while also offering on-site schools with a new multi-campus educational village being developed; places of worship, including the upcoming Houston’s First Baptist Church campus; the highly-anticipated Lakeland Village Center; social activities; and recreational outlets.

Houston’s First Baptist Church Second Place of Worship to be Located in Bridgeland
Cypress, TX (October 9, 2015) – Bridgeland, a development of The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC), announced today that Houston’s First Baptist Church has purchased 32.4 acres for a new home for its Cypress Campus located in Bridgeland, an award-winning master planned community.
Houston’s First Baptist Church will be situated off the Grand Parkway in Bridgeland. The initial phase will include a 1,300-seat Worship Center with accompanying Life Bible Study space for infants through adults. The church will consist of a total of 100,000 square feet.
“Bridgeland is one of the premier communities in one of the most dynamic cities in the United States,” said Senior Pastor Gregg Matte from Houston’s First Baptist Church. “It is our privilege and pleasure to offer hope, light and wisdom to the residents of Bridgeland and beyond. Houston’s First Baptist Church is excited to be part of this vibrant community.”
The current Cypress Campus gathers on Sundays at 9:30am and 11:00am for both worship services and Life Bible Studies at Smith Middle School at 10300 Warner Smith Boulevard and Fry Road. The Cypress Campus Ministry Center, located at 22220 Northwest Freeway and Telge Road, provides office and weekday gathering space.
“Houston’s First Baptist Church is excited to build a new building in Bridgeland, but we are even more enthusiastic about the opportunity to continue serving the people in the community for many years to come,” said Jason Swiggart, Cypress Campus Pastor of Houston’s First Baptist Church.
Construction on the new campus for Houston’s First Baptist Church will begin in January 2016 with completion slated for February 2017. The design and architecture of the building will be complementary to the aesthetics of the Katy Prairie. This is the second place of worship to open in Bridgeland. The first place of worship to open was The Foundry, a United Methodist Congregation, on Fry Road.
“We are excited to welcome Houston’s First Baptist Church to Bridgeland as our second place of worship, paving the way for more congregations,” said Peter Houghton, Vice President of Master Planned Communities for Bridgeland. “Bridgeland continues to flourish with our recently announced Cypress-Fairbanks ISD multi-campus, Lakeland Village Center and new residences, along with a portion of the Grand Parkway running through our community.”
Alex Sutton, Co-President of The Woodlands® Development Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Howard Hughes Corporation; Peter Houghton, Vice President of Master Planned Communities for Bridgeland; and Rip Reynolds, Director of Leasing and Commercial Land for The Howard Hughes Corporation represented Bridgeland.
