In 2000, the population of Conroe, Texas, north of Houston, was under 40,000. Today, the city named the fastest-growing in America (per U.S. Census Bureau) counts more than 80,000 citizens and newcomers are spilling over into neighboring communities.
One such is Spring, where the Houston Chronicle reports an upswing in new retail developments to keep up with the population.
This fall Regency Centers will open The Market at Springwoods Village in the town, a 167,231-sq.-ft. open-air center that will house Kroger, Mod Super Fast Pizza, Zoe’s Kitchen, Jinya Ramen Bar, and Natural Pawz. Springwoods Village is a master-planned community.
Also opening in town this fall will be The Shops at Spring Village, which so far has AT&T and Dunkin' Donuts lined up as tenants. It is being developed by Capital Retail Properties, which owns more than 50 commercial properties in the Houston area.
