MONTGOMERY - Woodforest, a project of the Johnson Development Corp. spanning 3,000 acres, is on target to release 600 lots to builders this year, putting it on pace to top last year’s sales while adding two new types of housing.

Builders have started more than 300 homes in Woodforest so far this year, about 3 percent above last year’s pace.

Woodforest will offer the first townhomes in early October. Chesmar Homes will build 56 homes priced from $180,000 in the Cheswood neighborhood.

Taylor Morrison recently introduced housing for buyers age 55 and up in Bonterra at Woodforest, a community planned for 700 homes with 110 properties in its first phase.

“More than 30 homes have already sold in Bonterra, less than two weeks after the community’s grand opening,” Virgil Yoakum, general manager of Woodforest, said.

Builders sold a record 457 homes in Woodforest in 2013, a 40 percent increase over 2012. Since opening in 2009, 3,500 people have moved to Woodforest.

The community’s first onsite school, Stewart Elementary in the Conroe Independent School District, is set to open August 25.
