Get to know Cypress

Cypress was one of the last northwest Houston areas to transform from rural farmland into suburban splendor. But starting in the 1980s and continuing through the present day, the region’s open land has quickly been shaped into some of Houston’s most well-regarded master-planned communities, including Towne Lake and Bridgeland, which was developed by the same team that manages The Woodlands. Many of these master-planned communities are still being built, with plenty of options for custom new construction. Developers have made an effort to offer a variety of architectural styles, so that each house is visually distinct. New construction dominates in Cypress—whether it’s part of a master-planned community or an individual home in the more rural parts of the region—so that almost every residence here is built to order. Cypress’s communities are packed with resort-style amenities, with busy shopping areas, recreational trails, game courts, and waterparks available to residents.

Living in Greater Houston

Like all of Texas, Greater Houston’s history is the story of oil, with suburban towns developed by and for gas and oil executives, with Houston’s Energy Corridor remaining a major employer today. The suburbs of north Houston stretch from Kingwood, technically inside the city limits, all the way up to and beyond The Woodlands, whose growth and prominence has earned it its own identity, separate from H-Town. These suburbs are young metropolises—towns that grew out of farmland and forest in the past 50 years, with houses, office parks, newly created lakes, and golf courses emerging from rural lands where only cows and feral pigs once roamed. As Houston’s economy has diversified and as the region has created more new jobs, Houston residents have looked farther and farther out for more space to settle. Greater Houston is booming and there’s no better place to call home.
