North Houston Bike Park
Client: North Houston Redevelopment Corporation
Services: Construction Management
Location: Houston, Texas
Completion Date: August 2019
Centrally located off Kuykendahl and Interstate 45, the North Houston Bike Park is a 22-acre BMX and mountain bike facility catered to all skill levels. The park, also known as the Rockstar Energy Bike Park, is the second phase in the North Houston Development Corporations’ beautification program that also includes the North Houston Skate Park and Dylan’s Park.
The park has over 10 attractions including red-clay race tracks, street courses, a performance pavilion and wooded bike trails, making it one of the largest biking facilities in the United States. The design utilizes space below one of the entrance ramps, something that has never been done before. Rather than leave the space empty, the area includes a concession stand, office and storage space.
This collaboration between J|C and the North Houston Redevelopment Corporation was designed to provide resources for the community. Children can participate in BMX 101 where they can learn to ride a bike and the fundamentals of BMX. Older children can also learn about bike building and track modeling.
Jones|Carter provided program and construction management services to the North Houston Development Corporation. We utilized a construction manager at-risk delivery method to ensure the project was delivered with a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) and oversaw the overall design and development of the facility. Our team has worked along the North Houston Redevelopment Corporation for the past 15 years, with this project lasting three years.
The park celebrated its grand opening on August 16, 2019.
