TOMBALL - Construction will begin in fall 2013 on Tomball’s 120-acre Business and Technology Park at the corner of Hufsmith-Kohrville Rd. and Holderrieth Rd. Tomball’s Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) has received an $8.5 million bond from the city for the development.

TEDC, which is developing the infrastructure for the park, will continue with the design process through June 2013 and take construction bids in July 2103 and August 2013, starting construction in August or September of 2013, said Kelly Violette, TEDC executive director.

“Our whole area is growing tremendously,” Violette said. “I think we hit this at the right time because of the growth we’re seeing with Baker Hughes, Noble Energy, Exxon — all the growth coming our way — as well as the infrastructure improvements like the Grand Parkway and Highway 249,” said Violette.

TEDC expects to sell the first lots by the end of 2013.

The large corporate moves and expansions are driving population growth in Tomball — projected to increase 20 percent in the next decade, according to data from the Houston-Galveston Area Council.
