Traditional Neighborhoods Hit Houston

New TNDs are springing up all around Houston, including three new projects designed by Andres Duany.

"The developer of Bridgeland, one of the area's newest master-planned communities, has mapped out four of these projects throughout the 11,400-acre development near U.S. 290 and Fry Road.

The first, Lakeland Heights, is under construction.

When it's completed, the project will have a small shopping district and about 600 homes with Craftsmen, Tudor, Classical and French country styles of architecture based on existing Houston neighborhoods like the Heights and Southampton.

'It's not just, 'Let's build 20,000 two-story red brick houses.' We've been there and done that,' said Peter Houghton, Bridgeland's vice president of sales. 'It's time to provide different architecture and lifestyle.'"
