Lakeview - New Master Planned Community Breaks Ground

Lakeview - New Master Planned Community Breaks Ground

Lakeview, a new 1,200-acre master-planned community on the west side of Houston, is breaking ground on the initial phase of development.

Located on FM 362 near SH 529, the initial phase will include expansive 1- and 2-acre estate lots to be developed on more than 200 acres. The estate homes are expected to range from the mid $400,000s to more than $800,000. Builders David Weekley Homes, Jamestown Estate Homes, K. Hovnanian Homes and Sitterle Homes have been selected to offer homes in the first phase.

“Lakeview will be something entirely new for this market ,” said Peter Houghton, Principal of Rooted Development who will be developing the property for the family who has owned the land for more than 50 years. “Waller is a growing area, but the communities coming in feature small lot sizes. We’re giving people the space they want in a country atmosphere with an emphasis on creating a high quality master-planned community.”

Prominent in the Lakeview master plan is a 42-acre lake surrounded by homesites with two additional lakes flanking the main entry. A central park will have a fishing pier and community gathering space. The lake will be stocked for catch-and-release fishing.

“We’re also planting abundant trees throughout the community including some older mature oak trees that are up to 10 inches in diameter,” Houghton said.

The community will feature paved concrete streets, high-speed fiber internet and a community water system.

Sales are expected to begin in Summer 2022.

Lakeview is zoned to Waller Independent School District. Residents will have access to Highway 290, which is approximately eight miles away, and Interstate 10 and the Grand Parkway, both about 11 miles from Lakeview.

Rooted Development principals Peter Houghton and Christopher Gilbert have more than 50 years of residential real estate development experience between them, and have helped shape the development of communities coast to coast. Houston-area communities include Bridgeland, Cinco Ranch, Woodson’s Reserve, Greatwood and the Reserve at Katy.
