Lake View Central is a planned mixed-use development intended to serve various demographics within our area. Grocery anchored retail will occupy high traffic frontage. Entertainment and lifestyle venues will be located in the middle of the site. To the west we hope to attract office and multi-family concepts. The south and east sides of the tract are planned for a full-spectrum retirement community and accompanied medical services.
Drainage, utilities, and access are critical to the delivery of this project. This site posed a variety of challenges. Off-site drainage from both east and west must be accounted for and conveyed to the TxDOT culvert at the north end of our site. Conroe continues to work on upgraded water service in this area. We are permitting the first phase of development including a two-mile major collector road, drainage to serve over 100 acres and a balanced grading plan for the future pad-sites. Major infrastructure including new intersections with lights for access and a lift station with a mile of force main to provide sewer service.
Access required coordination and approval from TxDOT, Conroe, and Montgomery County. We have proposed two new intersections on a state highway and a county road. Several miles of public roads will bisect this development and increase mobility throughout the area.
Coordination with the Client and other consultants has led us to this point. Tree and wetland preservation were incorporated into the landplan to create an inviting place for families to connect, be productive, and enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Conroe.
We have secured all entitlements, created districts, refined our master plan, and now preparing to execute our first phase of development. This will be a transformative project for the Lake Conroe area.
