The Signorelli Co. has named the first homebuilders for its Granger Pines development in Conroe, according to a press release. The master-planned community is in east Montgomery County, between I-45 and I-59.

The two builders, D.R. Horton and First America Homes, will break ground soon on the 232 single-family homes planned for the development's first phase. First America Homes will build on 40-foot homesites while D.R. Horton will build on 40- and 50-foot homesites. The homes will be priced from the high $100,000s and range in size from 1,100 to 2,900 square feet. The home models are scheduled to be open in the spring.


When completed, Granger Pines will be a 460-acre community with more than 1,100 homes including 120 acres of green space, lakes and parks and is located at 14432 Sugar Pines Drive, Conroe. 713-452-1700. www.signorellicompany.com
