Named one of the 10 hottest neighborhoods in Houston, the Spring Branch District just keeps heating up with new developments. 

Take, for example, the Riverway Homes new community, which is designed to reflect the best aspects of urban and suburban living.

Located at the intersection of Long Point Road and Ojeman Road, Spring Valley Point prides itself on being zoned to desirable public schools, and it offers ease of mobility and low-maintenance, customizable homes. 

“Spring Branch is the closest urbanized suburb to Houston, with easy access to different parts of the city, with the best schools, and with proximity to downtown,” says Riverway Homes Realtor Lily Jang. “Spring Branch is a no-brainer.”

Summerlyn at Spring Branch is another new single family home community, developed by Pulte Homes. With its premier location north of Long Point Road at Laverne Street and Monterey View, Summerlyn offers flexible two-story floor plans, optional front balconies, back decks and covered patios, as well as spacious backyards. There really is something for everyone in Summerlyn. The best part is it’s in Spring Branch. Like other communities in the area, Summerlyn at Spring Branch is close to exemplary schools in Spring Branch ISD, and the area also offers a wide variety of nearby prestigious charter and private schools.

With homes located just north of Hammerly at Ojeman Road, KB Home’s Cedar Brook community offers eight floor plans in this conveniently located area near shopping and entertainment, as well as schools and parks.

And at the Spring Branch District’s Kolbe Farms, InTown Homes offers homes with front porches and back patios, reminiscent of years past but now, in the midst of a pandemic, it’s also perfect for the present, with families spending more leisure time together at home. 

Calling Spring Branch home has only become more desirable as the Spring Branch Management District’s 7 Projects to Follow come to fruition. 

One of the major factors that draws many to the area is the Spring Branch District’s proximity to other parts of Houston. With the commencement of Spring Branch Trail Phase 1 just this past May, residents of the District may someday soon be able to ride a bike from their home to downtown Houston and back without having to navigate traffic on any major streets. 

With all of this growth and increased mobility, which businesses will set up in Spring Branch to meet both current and new residents’ needs? The smart ones. Spring Branch households already spend nearly $2 billion on retail goods and services per year.

Among its public amenities, the Spring Branch District is showing that art is truly in the heart of Houston with Art on Long Point. Art installations have been carefully curated and placed along Long Point Road between Gessner and Wirt. They will be rotated with new pieces every nine months. 

The 60,000-square-foot shopping center that hosted the art program’s kickoff is also an emerging Spring Branch commercial destination with Soul Tribes Yoga, Slowpokes Coffee and Feges BBQ, just to name a few, joining a growing market for family-owned restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. 

When it comes to buying a home or opening a business, the saying is location, location, location. All indications are that location should be Spring Branch.
