Houston: 500 homes to Hines' European-style village Houston: 500 homes to Hines' European-style village https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=16042015-03-02T06:47:00Z2015-03-02T00:00:00Z

HOUSTON - Somerset Green, a walled development that will have some 500 homes when completed, is being built on 46 acres inside the northwestern corner of the 610 Loop.

The community will house luxury homes rising three and four stories that will line new streets and small parks. Homes will range from 2,600 to about 4,000 sf and will be priced from $500,000 to $800,000.

The most expensive homes will sit alongside a canal running through a portion of the former industrial property that's being redeveloped into a European-style residential community.

A main building for the residents will have a kitchen for catered events, and there will be a swimming pool next to a reflection pond. The streets will be lined with mature trees, and driveways will be accessible through alleys.

Community fees are estimated to be around $200 per month and cover such amenities as a 24-hour guard stationed at the front gate.

Houston-based Hines is developing the project located just north of I-10 off Old Katy Rd.

Coventry Homes, Pelican Builders and Toll Brothers will build the homes. They are expected to move sales trailers onto the property within the next couple of weeks.

In addition to Somerset Green, an upscale apartment complex is being constructed on Old Katy Rd.
