A new residential community is headed to Waller County, according to a Jan. 15 press release from The Signorelli Co., a Texas-based real estate developer.

Bluestem, a 365-acre development coming to Brookshire, will feature over 1,300 single-family homes on various homesite sizes. According to The Signorelli Co., the development is minutes from Katy as well as a recently announced Amazon facility. The community will also offer 64 acres of walking trails, reserves, green spaces, lakes and creeks. There will also be a 2-acre recreation space for residents.

“The community is picturesque, with wooded creeks and open green space making it an ideal place to call home,” said Jeff Dewese, senior vice president of land for The Signorelli Co. “Waller County is rapidly growing, quickly becoming a major destination to live, work and play for families of all sizes.”

Children in the Bluestem community will attend Royal ISD schools.

“Royal ISD is thrilled about the growth The Signorelli Co. will be bringing to the area with Bluestem,” RISD Superintendent Rick Kershner said. “We look forward to providing excellent educational opportunities and support to the future students of this community.”

While prices and homebuilders for Bluestem have not yet been solidified, The Signorelli Co. intends to break ground on the development in the second quarter of 2022. An exact location of the new development is not yet available.
