Construction Now Underway
Friendswood Development Company has announced the acquisition of 1,560 wooded acres located seven miles north of Kingwood that will be the location of its newest master-planned community – Tavola.
Construction is now underway on the first phase of the community which includes the entry lake and the first three sections of home sites. The initial phase of Tavola will offer homes priced from the $150,000s to the low $300,000s on 50-foot, 55-foot and 65-foot wide home sites. Home sites are planned to be builder ready by early 2014. Lennar Homes will build in each program and additional builders will be announced over the next few months. Future sections will include 75-foot wide home sites and patio homes. Additional building programs will be considered as the community progresses.
“The name Tavola is derived from an Italian word meaning table or gathering place "said Tim Fitzpatrick, Sales and Marketing Manager for Friendwood Development Company.” “We believe the name Tavola perfectly describes our newest community which will appeal to a variety of new-home buyers from across the Houston area as well as those relocating to Houston. With the diversity of building programs planned, the prime location and great amenities, Tavola will be a community that everyone from young residents to those enjoying their retirement years will be proud to call home.”
Amenities will include a recreation center with a pool, park and clubhouse and miles of wooded greenbelt trails that will wind throughout the community which is located in the New Caney Independent School District. Earlier this year, the New Caney ISD put a 14-acre tract within Tavola under contract and is planning to begin construction on an elementary school in early 2014 and have it opened by the fall semester, 2015.
With immediate access to US 59, Tavola is very convenient to major employment centers including the Greenspoint Business District, downtown, and Bush Intercontinental Airport. Additionally, Tavola will be the second exit north of the intersection of the future Grand Parkway and Hwy. 59. This segment of the Grand Parkway is planned to be complete by fall, 2015 and will offer Tavola residents easy access to the entire north Houston area including the new Exxon Mobil campus.
