Taylor Morrison Announces Purchase of Home Sites in The Groves

HOUSTON – Taylor Morrison will build single-family homes in one of northeast Houston’s newest master-planned communities, The Groves, the company announced today.

The new community, expected to debut in early 2015, will feature the Houston homebuilder’s Grande Series on 70-foot-wide lots, said Jim Ellison, vice president of sales and marketing for the company’s Houston division.

“It’s a heavily wooded area that Houston homebuyers will appreciate for its rural feel and flavor,” Ellison said. “When finished, the community will include neighborhood parks and a trail system centered around Woodland Creek. It’s the ideal environment for a Taylor Morrison home.”

Indeed, a premium is being placed on keeping the community part of the surrounding landscape, with wooded areas throughout the community, plenty of open space and amenities that will include a proposed visitor center with an outdoor plaza, great lawn, natural play area and more.

The 993-acre master-planned community is located in northeast Houston, north of the Sam Houston Parkway and just south of Kingwood. The new community will offer convenient access to both Lake Houston to the east and George Bush Intercontinental Airport to the west.

Located off Beltway 8 and West Lake Houston Parkway, The Groves will also provide access to downtown Houston, just 25 minutes away from the community.
