THE WOODLANDS - Del Webb, a national brand of residential communities for those at or nearing retirement age, will develop a new gated community expected to have 550 single-family homes on 200 acres at the southeast corner of FM 1488 and Old Conroe Rd.

It will be the second Del Webb development in this Houston area. The first, Del Webb Sweetgrass, opened in 2011 in Richmond. It is still under development and has room for a total of 1,500 homes.

Construction on model homes should begin early 2016. Presales will start then as well. The homes, designed with one story, will range from 1,650 to 2,900 sf, but some will have options for attic storage space or a second-floor study or bedroom and bathroom.

Plans are still in the works for the amenities, but the company said its other projects include fitness centers, gathering rooms, outdoor pools, walking and jogging trails, and tennis.

David Kalosis, a senior vice president of John Burns Real Estate Consulting, said many of the baby boomers being targeted for these communities still work and want to be near job centers. They also like to stay close to family.
