Shea Homes, a homebuilding company that constructs homes across the U.S., including in Harper's Preserve, is designing a 740-acre development with more than 2,000 homes in Conroe, according to a press release. Evergreen is the builder’s second, and largest, residential development in the Houston area, the release said.

Evergreen is located on the northwest corner of FM 242 and FM 1314. The first phase will include 247 homesites, according to the release.

“This location has excellent accessibility to the Grand Parkway, The Woodlands and the airport, which is one of the aspects that caught our eye,” said Jim Zimmerman, vice president of land acquisition and development for Shea Homes, in the release.

Zimmerman said the community will feature a creek that traverses the property. About 100 acres of the development will be devoted to parks, green space and amenities, the release said.

“While we will also have planned amenities, we want to preserve as much of the land’s natural environment as we can, providing ample opportunities for outdoor recreation,” Zimmerman said in the release.

Homes will start selling in Evergreen next summer or fall, the company said. Due to cost fluctuations with construction, Shea Homes said it does not have a starting price for homes yet.
