Apparently the surveying on WLH isn't just for road expansion....

Kingwood expanding

Friendswood Development Co. is adding on to Kingwood, the master-planned community it developed in 1971, with the purchase 221 acres.

The land will be the future site of Royal Brook with homes starting in the $300,000s, according to commercial real estate firm Avison Young. It is situated in the northeastern portion of Kingwood where West Lake Houston Parkway ends near Mills Branch Drive.

Lee Jones, a principal with Avison Young, represented the sellers, Prabhakar Guniganti and Triplet PG Family Limited Partnership.

Kingwood spans some 15,000 acres with 75 miles of greenbelts and 500 acres of private parks and nature reserves. It is about 24 miles northeast of downtown.

Kingwood was the 12th most active community with 272 houses started in 2012, according to Metrostudy.

Friendswood Development Co. is developing Royal Shores at Kingwood with homes from the $400,000s. The roster of builders consists of Brickland Homes, Jaeger Homes, Rueby Custom Homes, Frontier Custom Builders.

Goes along with this: Proprosed roads in north Kingwood

They should have just absorbed North Kingwood Forest as well. What a waste of property :( 

Lynda I --- 306 days ago -

Who in God's name would want to live all the way back there and add a good half hour to comute time? Not my DH. 

Agent of Change --- 306 days ago -

Isn't that plot of land directly adjacent to a gravel pit? Can you imagine the truck noise and airborne particulate being stirred up. 

Valentine --- 306 days ago -

and that, folks (in my opinion) is what will ruin our little "bubble". more through roads mean more drive through traffic, which means higher probability of crime. boo.

Extra half hour commute time? what are you talking about? There are plans to put access to 59 from Mills Beach Rd. That would help that new subdivision and the entire north end of Kingwood reach 59 quicker, not slower as it would be just one exit past North Park.

People have been saying that about Kingwood since they sold the second house here.

Who wants to live in a bubble, anyway. Think, "diversity!"

ha! i'm fine with diversity. i just like the "small town feel" of our community. 

8675309 --- 306 days ago -

I think most people will take the same roads in and out of KW that they are currently taking. Unless the new roads significantly reduce your driving time, or ease of reaching certain destinations, most likely you will continue to use the same routes, keeping your same old-same old "small town feel" as if nothing ever changes.

If E. Martin gets built up, we'll definitely take that way since we are in MB. I'm very excited about the prospect of more in/out options. Ford Road is already taking on such a burden with extra traffic from Northpark construction projects.

The new homes will start in the 300s, do you think that would attract more crime or maybe divert some? I have no idea what the crime rate in Porter is like.

Expansion is needed and necessary. It will be an interesting time for sure. 

Jeff777 --- 305 days ago -

aren't they putting a beltway through Porter?

Well, I could be wrong, but I believe diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.

I believe the Grand Parkway is slated to go east from 1485 then south near Dayton.

The land is adjacent to the gravel pits on Hueni and next to Mills Branch, on the right hand side, just before the nasty bend. There is a typo in the news report. The company that sold the land is Triple P G and can be found on HCAD.org.

No wonder Mills Branch is being widened, Friendswood are going to be working with COH to ensure access to the new community.

It will have a gas pipe running through it and power lines overhead. Awesome location for 300K+ homes. 

Peeking Boo --- 305 days ago -

I just noticed that the article mentions Royal Brook ($300K+) and then Royal Shores ($400K+). Where is Royal Shores? 

Salsa --- 305 days ago -

Royal Shores is on the lake in Kings Point.

Could anyone tell me how to find out what the boundaries will be for the new subdivision off of Hueni Road?
