HUMBLE - Builders are starting construction on the first homes in The Groves, a new master-planned community on 993 acres off West Lake Houston Pkwy. south of Kingwood.

Crescent Communities LLC is developing the project and has partnered with six home builders to develop the first phase of the project — 189 of an estimated 2,200 homes. The home builders and home/lot sizes are:

•  2,000-sf to 3,300-sf homes on 55-by-130-foot lots, built by David Weekley and Village Builders;
•  2,400-sf to 3,700-sf homes on 60-by-130-foot lots, built by Darling and Highland; and
•  3,000-plus-sf homes on 70-by-130-foot lots, built by Taylor Morrison and Trendmaker.

Each builder will offer several floor plans. The first models are expected to be finished in October. Presales have already begun, and Highland has sold its first two homes.

There will be a welcome center with a multipurpose room, lounger, outdoor plaza, fire pit, splash pad and play area.

Around the community, Crescent is constructing landscaping, an entry wall and the first section of about five miles of wooded trails during phase one of construction. A grand opening is planned for February or March.

Phase two of construction will consist of 187 lots, probably with the same six builders. Crescent plans to deliver a stocked fishing pond with a cabin and dock by next September.

For phase three, Crescent will offer four or five different lot sizes and deliver up to 300 homes a year. Also included are plans to construct The Groves’ primary amenity center, which will have a lifestyle coordinator and pools, and build out its trail system, which will have a treehouse and suspension bridge.
