Pretty amazing to be seeing that kind of stuff in a burb of Houston. Most of the dense development taking place cant be seen on this photo.
For a suburb, it's pretty "urban" and designed very well. I wouldn't say it's urban in the sense that the word is usually used here, but I have nothing but good things to say about what I've seen in the Woodlands. I think the natural setting helps; it's a beautiful community. The aerial photo above doesn't do it justice and only shows part of the Woodlands.
