The Woodlands Master Planned Community

The Woodlands, Texas

The Woodlands is located in Harris and Montgomery Counties and with more than 25,000 acres, it was one of the first master-planned communities in the country. The Woodlands includes gated communities, family homes, urban residences, golf courses, schools, office buildings, and a thriving Town Center. The development is also known for its extensive forested trails, lakes, and open greenspaces.

IDS has provided land development engineering services to The Woodlands Development Company since 1996. During this time, we have designed public utilities and paving in more than 100 residential subdivisions serving thousands of single family lots. These residential subdivisions included design of major thoroughfares, collector streets, bridges, grading and layout of the Carlton Woods Creekside Golf Course, fill plans, water distribution lines, water plants, sanitary trunk sewers, force mains, wastewater plants, lift stations, storm sewer drainage facilities, drainage channels, detention ponds, amenity lakes, weirs, and other associated infrastructure facilities to serve The Woodlands.

We were also heavily involved in developing the overall master plan for The Woodlands’ Village of Creekside Park, a 4,000 acre development in Harris County. IDS has aided The Woodlands in negotiating with Harris County on several Woodlands’ development styles, such as signage, crosswalks, pavement width, etc. that make The Woodlands a unique development known nationwide.
