Few details were revealed about the plan through the filing. The developer is listed as 290 WR Holdings LP, an affiliate of the Johnson Development Corporation, which has built several master-planned communities in the Greater Houston area. Johnson Development purchased the 1,600 acres in a transaction that was announced by seller Rockspring Capital in 2017.
The tract is located outside of the Grand Parkway, south of Hwy. 290 and between Katy Hockley and Warren Ranch roads. Several municipal utility districts have already been formed in the area, including Harris County MUD No. 405, which was listed with the plat filing.
The plan was approved as part of the planning commission's consent agenda and was made without discussion. The approval is conditional upon the developer fulfilling several requirements, most of which were related to keeping the general plan in alignment with the Houston Major Thoroughfare Plan, according to planning commission documents.
Other Houston-area communities developed by Johnson Development include Sienna Plantation, Woodforest and Cross Creek Ranch. A master-planned community at this site would be Johnson Development's first in Northwest Houston.
