New houses planned for northern Katy area

Posted

The northern Katy area will soon see a new housing development on the northwest corner of the Katy Hockley Cutoff Road-West Road intersection.

Colliers, a Houston-based commercial real estate firm, has purchased about 494 acres located on the corner of Katy Hockley Road and West Road.

Tim Sojka, broker of the See TIM Sell Team at Keller Williams and Katy Times real estate columnist, said development in the northern part of the 77493 zip code today resembles what the development in the southern part of the 77494 zip code looked like about 10 years ago.

“It’s the new frontier for Katy,” Sojka said.

In a statement, the buyer, Woodmere Development Co., Ltd., was represented by James Kadlick, Harrison Kane and Chris Hutcheson of Colliers Land Advisory Group.

“Houston’s Northwest corridor has traditionally been one of the strongest growth areas for new development,” Kadlick, Colliers senior vice president, said. "This trend isn’t slowing down even with the changing economic environment. There are very few tracts left within Katy Independent School District and this is one of them.”

Students living in the planned development would be attending Paetow High School, Haskett Junior High and McElwain Elementary. All three schools opened in the last five years.

Sojka said how the schools perform will control how the neighborhoods will deliver over the next decade.

“In Katy’s history, they’ve proven they have a great plan for that,” Sojka said. “In 77494, the schools have flourished, and the neighborhoods have flourished.”

The future single-family development property is less than three miles from the Grand Parkway.

Katy Hockley Cutoff Road is currently being expanded from two lanes to four, which is expected to ease area growth.

The development is also near several Harris County Pct. 4 facilities such as the John Paul Landing Park and Paul D. Rushing Park, which have a combined total acreage of roughly 1,100 acres.

A Harris County Juvenile Facility and Harris County Juvenile Leadership Academy are nearby, as is a Harris County Precinct Constable’s office.
