Castle Hill Partners to Launch 2,170-Home Project near Grand Parkway Segment

Austin's Castle Hill Partners is launching its next major project in the Houston region. Named "The Trails," this development will span 1,373 acres around Plum Grove Road, adjacent to the Grand Parkway's northeast section that became operational in May 2022. The land, acquired by Castle Hill in 2013, was previously part of a larger holding, but parcels were sold over time. A noteworthy sale was about 1,000 acres south of Luce Bayou.

The project's timing aligns with the Grand Parkway's opening. Tiffany McMillan, representing Castle Hill Partners, highlighted the development's prime location. Its proximity to work hubs, leisure zones, and shopping outlets is seen as a significant attraction.

The Trails envisions 2,170 homes, an amenities hub, space for a prospective elementary school, and a vast 600-acre span reserved for nature trails and green spaces. Its location near Lake Houston Wilderness Park provides additional recreational opportunities like hiking, canoeing, and fishing.

McMillan mentioned, "The essence of The Trails is to offer an active, nature-centric lifestyle, harnessing the site's natural beauty – from pine trees to streams."

The first phase will introduce 254 homes. Renowned builders such as Chesmar Homes, Coventry Homes, and Lennar Homes, among others, are on board. They anticipate showcasing model homes and having ready-to-occupy homes by spring 2024. The residence will come under Huffman Independent School District's jurisdiction.

An amenity village, brimming with features like a family pool, lap pool, nature-themed playgrounds, splash pad, outdoor concert spaces, and food truck spots, is also in the pipeline. Most homes will be a short walk away from these facilities.

Infrastructure upgrades include the northward extension of Plum Grove Road, set to commence this year.

Castle Hill Partners is no stranger to large-scale projects. Their earlier Houston project, Pine Mill Ranch in Katy, was fully acquired by 2015. They've also spearheaded developments in Austin, McKinney, Phoenix, and Carson City, Nevada.
