East Montgomery County has tremendous potential for new business growth due to the abundance of land waiting to be developed and its proximity to Houston, an undisputed leader in domestic and international business. The area is located fewer than 10 miles from George Bush Intercontinental Airport Houston and 25 miles from the Port of Houston – both providing service worldwide. The area is also about 30 miles from William P. Hobby Airport, which plans to begin offering limited international service in 2015. Travel within the greater Houston area will become even more fluid with the addition of the Grand Parkway, a 180+ mile loop that travels through seven counties, intersecting U.S. 59/Interstate 69 in East Montgomery County.
The area has a rich tradition of high family values, moral standards and a stable and dependable workforce. East Montgomery County is continually recognized for its ability to provide new companies with qualified blue and white collar employees from a diverse mix of residents in the area.
Educational opportunities are boundless with top notch public school districts, access to numerous campuses within the Lone Star College System — the largest institution of higher learning in the greater Houston area — and minutes away from public and private four-year universities.
This area is rich in pine and hardwood forests, parks, lakes and rivers which provide for outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities that can be enjoyed year round thanks to the region's mild climate. The golfer can enjoy more than 40 courses that are sculpted out of the forest and wind over water obstacles providing memories and opportunities for that perfect shot. Oakhurst Golf Club, the Tour 18 Course or the Tournament Player Course at The Woodlands are just minutes away.
