City Place is slated to get its first on-site school as the next phase of residential development gets underway in the Spring master-planned community.
CDC Houston, the master developer of City Place, had sold a 28.9-acre tract south of the Grand Parkway on Spring Stuebener Road to Harmony Public Schools, a public charter school system focused on science, technology, engineering and math that has been expanding in master-planned communities. A school serving pre-K to seventh grade will open for the 2024-25 school year, followed by an adjacent, middle and high school in 2026-27.
“The timing and caliber of this acquisition aligns with the upcoming development of 520 new homes at City Place, along with a high-quality office environment that has attracted headquarters of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, ExxonMobil, American Bureau of Shipping and other corporate campuses,” Warren W. Wilson, executive vice president of CDC Houston, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to add Harmony Charter Schools to the growing number of community partners and believe their elementary, middle and high school will have a very positive impact on the existing and future City Place residents.”
CDC Houston has teamed with Scottsdale, Ariz.-based DMB Development on the next residential phase of City Place. New neighborhoods will continue the 2,000-acre master-planned community’s emphasis on sustainability in a design that incorporates green spaces and pathways for walking or biking to neighborhood amenities.
