More details revealed for new master-planned community west of Houston

Johnson Development Corp. revealed more details about its latest master-planned community west of Houston.

The Houston developer broke ground Oct. 20 on Jordan Ranch, located on 1,350 acres near Interstate 10 and Eagley Road, which will be renamed Jordan Ranch Boulevard, in Fulshear. Johnson Development purchased the former rice farmland from the Jordan family during the first quarter of 2015 for an undisclosed price.

Johnson Development will partner with nine builders to construct the first of some 2,800 traditional single-family homes planned for Jordan Ranch. Home prices will start from the $290,000s and go up to the upper $400,000s.
The first lots are expected to be delivered to builders in February. The first residents are expected to move into Jordan Ranch by the end of 2016. Johnson Development plans to announce the builders, lot sizes and home products in the future.
Johnson Development also plans to break ground in the coming months on the community’s first amenity center, which will include a fitness center and resort-style pool on four acres. In addition, the developer has set aside about 80 acres for commercial development as well as more than 200 acres of parks and lakes with several miles of interconnected trails.
“We try to create a sense of place for our residents across all of our Johnson communities,” said Steve Sams, general manager of Jordan Ranch. “It’s important to build a community, not just a place with a bunch of houses.”
Jordan Ranch is Johnson Development Corp.’s second master-planned community in Fulshear, a fast-growing suburb west of Houston. The new community is about three miles north of Johnson’s first community in Fulshear, Cross Creek Ranch, which spans 3,200 acres south of Katy. Johnson Development has announced a new active-adult community and the area’s first luxury apartments in Cross Creek Ranch, which won the Houston Business Journal’s Landmark Award for residential development in 2013.
“Fulshear has really become a place to be in on the west side of town,” Sams said. “It has become Fort Bend County’s premiere address.”

Jordan Ranch — like Cross Creek Ranch — will likely attract young families working in the nearby Energy Corridor. The community is located less than a mile south of Interstate 10, making easy access to west Houston energy companies. Children in Jordan Ranch will be zoned to the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District, which is planning to build an elementary school within Jordan Ranch, Sams said.

Johnson Development Corp. is the second-largest Houston-area master-planned community developer, according to HBJ research. It owns approximately 6,135 acres in the Houston area.
