A longtime resident of The Woodlands has been piecing together clues from online sources about the very quiet plans for the development of Mitchell Island — the only island in Lake Woodlands: “When East Shore was first announced in the 2000s, developers planned to turn the island into a clubhouse for East Shore residents to enjoy and maybe put a few commerical office buildings in there too. In recent years that plan has clearly shifted. With Hughes Landing a couple hundred yards down the lake housing many office buildings and the East Shore Clubhouse already constructed and recently opened this summer at a different location in East Shore, it is clear plans for the Mitchell Island are different.“
So, what’s going in there?
A private, gated community of 19 residential lots that’ll be put up for sale at prices between $1.5 million to $3 million — just for the land. The Woodlands Development Company, says the reader, “is clearly moving forward” with the 10-acre island development: “A bridge is already constructed and roads on the island are in place, but I have not heard much about it in the news.”
