A single-family rental community is coming to FM 2920 in Tomball. Tricon Residential Inc. and HHS Residential broke ground on Willow Creek Manors on Dec. 7 near 9530 FM 2920, Tomball, the firms announced in a Dec. 9 news release.

Willow Creek Manors is the first of Tricon's 14 single-family rental home communities anticipated in the Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio areas, totaling 1,900 rental homes across the state, according to the release. HHS Residential is the project developer, and Tricon Residential will operate the rental community in Tomball upon buildout.

"We have an opportunity to address the growing demand for single-family rental homes and to create additional housing in Texas through a highly desired product in purpose-built rental home communities. Willow Creek Manors is designed for individuals and families who desire the benefits of living in a single-family home, and prefer the convenience and flexibility of a rental lifestyle," said Andrew Carmody, managing director of Tricon Residential, in the release. "By providing them an exceptional maintenance-free resident experience, they have more time to spend on what is most important to them."

The new Tomball rental community will include 146 homes with three- and four-bedroom options, state-of-the-art technology, and outdoor amenities, such as a dog park, a pool and spa, and a sports field, according to the release. The homes will also include energy-efficient, stainless steel appliances and attached two-car garages.

Willow Creek Manors is anticipated to open in late 2022, according to the release.
