CONROE - The Johnson Development Corp. has big plans for its newest master-planned community, Grand Central Park.

The Houston developer revealed the master plan for the 2,046-acre wooded property, located on the southwest corner of I-45 North and Loop 336 in Conroe.

Johnson Development purchased the former Camp Strake property from the Sam Houston Area Council Boy Scouts of America in November 2013.

The master plan for Grand Central Park calls for traditional single-family homes, townhomes, apartments, condominiums, offices, retail shops, hotels and conference centers, as well as Montgomery County’s first medical school.

Johnson Development wanted to create a “distinct forest living experience with a decidedly urban feel” in Grand Central Park.

The developer said it is taking a careful approach, developing only a third of the property and protecting more than 1,200 acres of woodlands and 100 acres of lakes.
