Bridgeland Tree House Park
Having worked on the Bridgeland property for the past decade, Cate designed Tree House Park with Bridgeland’s environmental focus in mind. The structure is created from renewable pine stock and laced within a century-old oak, giving the impression that the tree organically grew through the tree house.
Lakeland Heights Street Scape
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 homes face a waterway or park and all are within walking distance to local schools, Lakeland Activity Center and the future Lakeland Village Center
In Cinco Ranch green isn't just another fad. Water is a precious resource and we do all we can to conserve it:
● Landscaping in newer areas feature wildflower reserves that require less irrigation, fertilizer, and mowing than turf grass.
● New homes feature Bermuda grass to reduce the need for irrigation.
● Homeowners are encouraged to plant trees to increase shade.
● The Cinco Ranch® community has a tree farm to cultivate trees to plant in common areas.
● An irrigation control system maximizes irrigation efficiency.
● A sanitary wastewater reuse system in newer sections of the Cinco Ranch community provide a significant amount of irrigation water for common areas, greatly reducing the need for pumping.

Pope Elementary School
Bridgeland's Pope Elementary school with a wind turbine and solar panel. Pope Elementary is noted for its environmentally-sensitive and unique design, and was built after Bridgeland donated the space for the school in early 2012. The development team at Bridgeland worked closely with Cy-Fair ISD and VLK Architects to ensure Pope took advantage of its park-like setting. It boasts a glass-front library, second-floor reading loft and a multipurpose observation deck that was designed to overlook Cypress Lake in Bridgeland.

Cross Creek Ranch’s Stormwater System
This storm water system is designed to Increase Bayou Conveyance with Natural Channel Design. Cross Creek Ranch’s stormwater system in Fort Bend County, Texas provides an excellent model for natural channel design. A series of elements – a 50-acre water quality basin, strings of large detention lakes, basins, and the expanded Flewellen Creek – are all designed to replicate a natural flood management process. Flewellen Creek’s linear system serves as a large-scale model for this natural approach to stormwater management. The enhanced quality of life and environmental benefits speak for themselves.
