Springwoods Village still growing through pandemic

Despite the pandemic affecting businesses across Houston and the country, Springwoods Village has managed to withstand the economic downturn and continue expanding their development, both commercial and residential.

Warren Wilson, executive vice president of CDC Houston, the developer of Springwoods Village, said business has still been going quite well at the development, with many more projects still planned for this year and the next.

“The pandemic has hit everyone, some people it’s hit with the tragedy of them passing away and others have lost their jobs,” Wilson said. “Some businesses have done well as consumer habits have changed, but we’ve just been fortunate to have ongoing activity and a lot of ongoing interest.”

Projects are still being worked on, including the 440,000-square-foot Hewlett Packard Enterprise campus, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year, Wilson said. Another apartment complex, The Canopy, is also scheduled to open by the end of the year, with 332 units and townhomes.

Interest has remained high in the development, Wilson said, and their new business pipeline has remained full. Wilson attributed this to the Springwoods Village’s proximity to Grand Parkway, I-45 and Hardy Toll Road.

Two residential communities are also in the development, and Wilson said there would be more units built along with more acres needing to be developed.

“We don’t have a great deal of residential offerings, but I think the inquiries have picked up,” he said. “Nationally, inquiries of people looking for suburban-type homes seem to have picked up.”
