THE WOODLANDS (Houston Business Journal) – If you’ve ever dreamed of living on your own private island, now’s your chance. Well, sort of.

Woodlands Development Co. is developing homes on Mitchell Island, which sits in the middle of Lake Woodlands. The island will have 19 one-acre lots.

The developer created the lake and the island in the mid-’80s, then announced in 2005 that it would be used for future residential development.

Woodlands Development is building a bridge that will connect the island to the mainland. A pier is also under construction for boats shuttling residents to Hughes Landing.
