3 Reasons to Choose Houston Capital Home Buyers
The Woodlands is a huge master-planned community and census-designated place in the beautiful state of Texas. The Woodlands itself wasn’t established until 1974; it’s located in the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area. The majority of which is located primarily in Montgomery County, with small portions extending outwards into Harris County. As of 2018, the estimated population of The Woodlands is around 116,278.
Located just north of Houston along the Interstate 45, The Woodlands started as a development community which quickly attracted businesses and several corporate campuses. Most notably the area is home to ExxonMobil, Chevron Phillips chemical, the Huntsman Corporation, and Aon PLC.
As you can see from looking around the area, it’s dominated by petroleum and energy companies which have expanded to the area because of the relatively cheap rent and convenient distance to Downtown Houston.
Not unlike most smaller cities around Houston, it was started originally by an oil magnate and investor. His name was George P. Mitchell, and in 1974 the town was founded as an extension of Mitchell Energy and Development. The original plans for the city are surprisingly close to today’s reality, with plans for a conference center, hotels, office parks, distribution centers, golf courses and a range of houses from affordable to luxurious.
By 2000, a humungous amount of corporate office space was under construction, and even today there is still a large number of new buildings under construction. Primarily, The Woodlands is home to national and multi-national corporations who value the serenity and wide sprawling land that the area has to offer, with competitive prices when compared to Houston.
In recent years, ExxonMobile has notably moved its Houston campus to The Woodlands, with over 10,000 employees migrating to the area from the previous Downtown location. Going forward it’s estimated that the population of the city will continue to grow as more companies locate to the metropolitan, area to take advantage of the benefits that The Woodlands has to offer.
