British-style community to rise in Houston: Big name developer bets on new high-priced homes
A British-style gated residential community is coming to a largely commercial and industrial zone inside Loop 610 as early as 2015, thanks to a recent land purchase by Houston-based Hines, which is mainly known for its skyscrapers gleaming across the globe.
Houses will reflect a Regency style of architecture and share community spaces such as pocket parks, dog parks and an amenity/gathering area with a resort-style swimming pool.
House prices are expected to range from $500,000 to $1 million, with Coventry Homes, Pelican Builders and Toll Brothers committed to building during the project’s first phase. Hines plans to start the initial phase of infrastructure in early 2014, with house construction underway later that year. Preston Wood & Associates is designing the land plan for the development.
The project is Hines’ first Houston single-family community in years, with most of the company’s residential developments in Dallas.
