Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District – bought nearly 128 acres to develop an almost 1 million-square-foot educational village in Bridgeland northwest of Houston.

This will be the first multicampus educational location in Bridgeland, according to Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corp.(NYSE: HHC), which is developing the 11,400-acre master-planned community in Cypress.

The village will include a four-story high school  the tallest academic building in the district along with a three-story middle school and a two-story elementary school. The schools will have shared common areas and multiuse facilities. Combined, the village will accommodate more than 5,900 students and teachers.

IBI Group Architects, which has offices in Houston and worldwide, is designing the master plan for the village, which is near the Grand Parkway. The high school and elementary school are expected to be complete in time for the 2017-2018 school year, and the middle school is planned for a future date.

Peter Houghton, vice president of master-planned communities for Bridgeland, represented the community in negotiations. Roy Sprague  Jr., associate superintendent of facilities, construction and support services, and Marney Sims, general counsel, represented the district. The value of the deal was not disclosed.

Eventually, CFISD, Katy ISD and Waller ISD are all expected to service Bridgeland. Currently, the community is home to  Pope Elementary School, and the master education plan for Bridgeland includes preschool, special-needs, private and public school sites. The addition of a university center or satellite location is another goal for Bridgeland.
