Client News

Home construction will begin mid-summer at The Groves, a new residential community by Crescent Communities in northeast Houston, Texas, where six builders will embark on phase one of the 993-acre, master-planned development. Highland Homes, David Weekley Homes, Darling Homes, Taylor Morrison, Trendmaker Homes and Village Builders will offer the first 189 of an estimated 2,200 homes.

“The Groves will offer residents tremendous benefits in location, outdoor spaces and home style varieties that suit their lifestyles,” said Jim Zimmermann, vice president of Crescent Communities’ residential group in Houston. “We’re looking forward to working with our builders on this next stage of development.”

The Groves will offer three home site sizes in phase one with homes beginning at 2,000 square feet. Village Builders and David Weekley Homes will build homes ranging from 2,000 square feet to 3,300 square feet on 55-by-130-foot lots; Highland Homes and Darling Homes will feature homes from 2,400 square feet to 3,700 square feet on lots that are 60-by-130 feet; and Trendmaker Homes and Taylor Morrison will feature 70-by-130 lots with homes starting at 3,000 square feet. Price points for the homes will range from $250,000 to the low $400,000s.

With the first homes available this fall, the Groves also will offer wooded trails, a Welcome Lodge with multipurpose room, lounge, outdoor plaza, fire pit and play area. Residents at The Groves will have access to 100 acres of open space along a creek with another 90 acres of open space, parks and natural reserves. The community also will include a stocked fishing pond with a cabin and fishing dock, as well as an amenity center and Village Center slated for future phases.

The Groves, located in Houston’s high-demand northeast corridor off of West Lake Houston Parkway and south of Kingwood, is one of five residential communities by Crescent in Texas. The company also is creating Rough Hollow on Austin’s Lake Travis; Belterra in Dripping Springs near Austin; Wildridge in Oak Point near Dallas; and, a master-planned community in the Austin suburb Leander.
