“Just west of The Woodlands, Woodhavyn offers excellent access to Highway 249 and FM 1488 in a fast-growing area of Montgomery County,” Jim Zimmermann, vice president of land acquisition and development for Shea Homes, said in an announcement. “In addition, FM 2978 is nearby, offering a straight shot to the Grand Parkway, and The Woodlands is just a few miles to the east.”
The master plan includes a four-acre lakeside recreation center, cul-de-sacs, waterways and green space throughout. In the southern portion of the community, Mill Creek will remain in its natural state, according to the developer. The land was purchased from Lakes at Mill Creek LP.
Shea Homes recently broke ground on Evergreen, a 740-acre community planned for 2,000 homes east of Interstate 45 in the Conroe area. Sales are expected to begin in the spring. The company also developed the 240-acre Del Bello lakes in Manvel.
