HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Caldwell, a Houston development firm, has started work on The Highlands, a 2,300 acre master-planned community that will have 4,000 homes someday.
The Highlands property is located in southern Montgomery County, midway between Interstate 45 and U.S. 59.
Caldwell says it is going for the feel of “a national park, featuring large recreational lakes, a 300-acre nature preserve, and a sandy beach area along the San Jacinto River” on the land, which has thick forests.
Streets Named After National Parks
“The topography of this site is what really sets it apart,” says Peter Barnhart, vice president of Land Development for Caldwell. “We wanted to be good stewards of the natural resources and the densely-treed setting has greatly inspired the development direction of the community. Even the streets are named after national parks.”
Located in the New Caney Independent Schooll District, the property is just west of FM 1314 along the Grand Parkway. The Highlands will also be home to a new elementary school, slated to open in the Fall 2024.
The community is slated for a soft opening late fall with a Grand Opening mid-2022.
“We’ve gone to great lengths to make sure that there’s something for everyone at The Highlands” says Barnhart. “Homes will be priced from the $290’s and up and offer a wide variety of home types for residents in every stage of life.”
Built by Houston’s most notable builders, buyers will be able to browse floor plans in the community’s Model Home Park later this fall. The Highlands builder lineup includes Beazer Homes, Caldwell Homes, Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes, Drees Homes, Empire Communities, Highland Homes, Lennar Homes, Newmark Homes, Partners In Building, Perry Homes, and Ravenna Homes.
The Highlands will also include active-adult homes nestled within the community, specifically designed those 55 and older. Patio homes for active-adults will include lawn maintenance in the HOA dues for the lock-and-leave leave lifestyle. Along with regular master planned communities, Caldwell also has developed several +55 age-restricted communities including Del Webb Sweetgrass, The Heritage at Towne Lake, Chambers Creek Ranch and the Trails at Rock Creek.
Fred Caldwell is President & CEO of Caldwell Cos., which developed Towne Lake, the 2019 GHBA Master-Planned Community of the Year.
Caldwell was a defensive lineman for the Texas A&M football team, when Gary Kubiak was quarterback in the 1980s.
