In Lakeland Heights, neighbors greet each other from their front porches, friendships blossom at nearby parks and families enjoy quality time at the pool and recreation center around the corner. Designed to feel like a small town that’s anchored by a village center, Lakeland Heights has the feel of classic Houston neighborhoods like The Heights and West University Place, but with all of the updated amenities of a new master planned community. Many of the 350 homes within Lakeland Heights face a waterway or park and all are within walking distance to local schools, Lakeland Activity Center and the future Lakeland Village Center.
Homes in Lakeland Heights range from the $230s to the $400s and are built by David Weekley Homes and J. Kyle Homes.
Looney Ricks Kiss, nationally known for its work with traditional neighborhood developments, prepared a meticulously detailed pattern book that serves as the plan for Lakeland Heights. The architectural powerhouse chose four design styles for Lakeland Heights: Craftsman, English Tudor, Classical and French. Each street in the TND will incorporate those housing styles to heighten curb appeal. Having architectural styles that are diverse and historical in appearance, rather than uniform and monochromatic, is a recognizable feature of traditional neighborhood developments, where homes appear to have evolved over time. Both homes and retail establishments will follow principles outlined in the pattern book.
Despite the nostalgic architecture, homes will have the modern features today’s buyers expect, such as high ceilings, large closets, media rooms and state-of-the-art kitchens and baths.
In Lakeland Heights, David Weekley’s product blends the traditional aesthetic TND buyers prefers on the outside, while also offering all of the conveniences and updates of a modern home on the inside. This award-winning concept, known by the company as Lifedesign, is key to David Weekley’s success in the TND market.
At J. Kyle Homes, beauty goes beyond exceptional design; it’s also in the things you can’t see. Real-wood trim work and available built-in appliances provide a finished, high-end look. Twelve-foot ceilings add a sense of open, airy comfort to some select models. And behind the walls, uncompromised construction techniques, including 16-inch on-center framing, provide a stronger structure that’s built to stand the test of time.
