The Howard Hughes Corp. and its wholly-owned subsidiary The Woodlands Development Co. have broken ground on a 390-unit multi-family project situated in the new 66-acre mixed-use development of Hughes Landing.

Dubbed One Lake’s Edge, the luxury multi-housing development boasts a location on the 200-acre Lake Woodlands, within close proximity to the shopping, dining and entertainment venues at Hughes Landing’s Restaurant Row.

“These luxury apartment homes help fulfill our vision for Hughes Landing to be a vibrant waterfront community within The Woodlands – an exciting hub where people can live, work and play,” said Paul Layne, executive vice president of master-planned communities for Howard Hughes. “We are extremely encouraged by the interest and excitement surrounding the project, from the pace of leasing of the first office building, One Hughes Landing, in only 10 months, along with several new eateries, including Escalante’s Fine Tex-Mex & Tequila and Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar, that will soon be underway.”

Designed by Houston–based Ziegler Cooper, One Lake’s Edge will offer a mix of one-, one-plus-study, two- and three-bedroom floor plans with panoramic views of the lake and an average unit size of 984 square feet. Interior finishes include wood floors, stainless steel gas appliances, granite countertops, roller shades and Nest “learning” thermostats.

Amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, oversize pool deck, show kitchen and large club room with elevated outdoor patio overlooking the lake, along with more than 22,000 square feet of retail planned for the ground floor. Additionally, the community will feature a pet-friendly environment with an on-site wash station, as well as kayak and bike storage and covered apartment-level parking.

Pre-leasing is expected to start in the fall of 2014, with occupancy anticipated to begin in early 2015.

The general contractor for One Lake’s Edge is HOAR Construction, based in Houston. At 825,000 square feet, the eight-story complex will be the third-largest building in the Woodlands.

At full build-out, Hughes Landing will feature as many as 11 office buildings; shopping, dining and entertainment; a specialty grocer; an upscale hotel; a fitness center; and as many as 800 multi-family residences.
