Del Webb, a national brand of Atlanta-based PulteGroup Inc., has acquired 200 acres next to The Woodlands to build a new community for active adults. Del Webb The Woodlands will be 5 miles from I-45 on FM 1488, and it is expected to open in 2016. The new community will include 550 homes, expansive open spaces, large trees and water features. Presales are expected to begin in early 2016.
Del Webb active adult communities include a full-time, on-site lifestyle director to plan programming such as fitness and well-being programs, financial management programs, groups and clubs, events, outings and gatherings. Although specifics are still being planned for Del Webb The Woodlands, the company’s communities typically include recreation amenities such as a fitness centers, pools, walking and jogging trails, tennis courts and more.
Del Webb The Woodlands will be the company’s second community in the greater Houston area. Del Webb Sweetgrass opened in Richmond, southwest of Houston, in 2011.
Lindy Oliva, division president for PulteGroup’s Houston division, said in a statement that the north Houston location will add geographic diversity to Del Webb’s Houston offerings. “We know there are many 55+ homebuyers seeking an exciting community lifestyle in areas near their existing home,” Oliva said in the statement, adding that the active adult market represents one of the fastest growing segments of the housing industry. “With many baby boomers still working in some capacity, location is increasingly important when looking for their next home.”
Irving, Texas-based Exxon Mobil Corp.’s new 385 acre campus and the Grand Parkway expansion project have been fueling the north Houston Real Estate market throughout the past year.
