- The Woodson's Reserve master-planned community in Spring, TX, near Houston, has opened its eighth section, according to the Houston Chronicle.
- The new addition includes homes built by Perry Homes and Toll Brothers priced from the upper $300,000s and spanning 2,900 square feet to 3,800 square feet.
- The development will form part of the Woodson's Reserve that includes a 9,000 square-foot amenity center, a swimming pool, more than 115 acres of nature preserve and four community lakes that are open to fishing. It is also set to include the future Grand Oaks high school and a future flex-school.
Although hit by a slump in the oil economy, demand for housing in Houston has remained relatively strong. The opening of several developments and MPC phases of late is one indication of persistent demand.
Communities like Woodson’s Reserve are part of a growing trend toward MPCs that offer walkability and nature-based amenities such as walking and hiking trails, water features and bike paths.
Canadian developer Empire Continental Land broke ground earlier this month on its 540-unit community development in League City, TX, near Houston while Newland Communities opened an MPC on 3,600 acres west of Houston.
