With a business-oriented atmosphere, Conroe boasts a diverse economy with a wealth of manufacturing, retail, healthcare, construction and tourism companies located in the city. In fact, there is a significant expansion of retail centers and business along I-45. Not to mention, a thriving downtown area and Conroe Park North (a 1,045-acre industrial park) offer additional destinations for businesses and services. Recent news has contributed to Conroe’s attractive business climate, as well, as the city of Conroe has confirmed plans for a mixed-use development that will include business opportunities, entertainment venues, high-end housing, and more.
Recently, Boy Scouts of America announced the sell of their Camp Strake site, a 2,100-acre site located southwest of I-45 and Loop 336 only ten minutes north of the future ExxonMobil campus, to Johnson Development Company who plans to construct a mixed-use development center. With a surplus of urban sprawl throughout the city of Conroe, this is an ideal location for commercial and residential development and will be accompanied by immeasurable benefits to the city of Conroe. As one of the largest available land parcels within the Greater Houston Area, the development will include both commercial and residential use, similar to Market Street in The Woodlands, housing office buildings, premier shopping, and high-end housing. In addition, it is possible that a portion of the property will be home to a new ball park for the Astros Triple-A team. This mixed-use development will prove to provide a number of perks to the city of Conroe. As an influx of businesses continues to flood the Conroe area, homeowners will not only receive convenient access to additional services and entertainment venues, but also increasing property values. Not to mention, the city will collect taxes from these businesses that will be allocated to providing additional resources for residents, including more housing units, businesses, parks, and other developments.
While this development will undoubtedly provide an abundance of further entertainment and business pursuits, the city of Conroe is currently home to plenty of recreation and entertainment options for residents to enjoy.
