Grand Parkway drives sales in Tavola communityGrand Parkway drives sales in Tavola communityhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=127372016-04-14T05:00:00Z2016-04-14T19:15:00Z

​​​TAVOLA - The new Grand Parkway is driving sales in Tavola, Friendswood Development Co.'s newest community along US 59 northeast of Houston.

More than half of the residents in the two-year-old community relocated there because of the expansion of the Grand Parkway and its immediate access to US 59.

A new segment of the Grand Parkway extending from I-45 to US 59 is open.

Tavola is two exits past the Grand Parkway, and seven miles north of Kingwood. 

The new road will cut drive times to job centers in The Woodlands and near Exxon Mobil's campus north of Houston.

New homes in the 1,560-acre community start around $250,000 and are available from Perry Homes, Lennar and Lakewood Homes.

A recreation center will open in Tavola this summer.

Like greater Houston overall, home sales are down in Tavola in 2016.

So far this year, 33 houses have sold in Tavola, down from 41 during the same period in 2015, according to the developer.
