Houston's Harvest Green Adds Homes

Author: Les Shaver

With nearly 65% of its Phase One home sites already sold in less than a year, Houston area "farm-centric" community Harvest Green is adding another 262 available properties in three neighborhoods.

Open now, the three new neighborhoods feature 50-, 55- and 60-foot home sites. Current builders will continue their existing programs within the new enclaves.

Harvest Green's builders include D.R. Horton, Darling Homes, David Weekley HomesHighland Homes, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Newmark Homes, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Westin Homes. Homes are prices from the $240,000s.

“The response from prospective buyers has been phenomenal,” said Shay Shafie, general manager of Harvest Green in a press release. “Builders sold 85 homes within three months of beginning pre-sales last fall, so we knew we’d have to be ready with new home sites soon.”

Residents enjoy access to two on-site farms — both yielding produce — as well as a range of community events, many of which revolve around food and sustainability. Home owners have the option for backyard gardens and later this year will be able to farm individual plots in the community’s Village Farm. A farm-share program also is in the works, which will allow residents to purchase weekly supplies of fresh produce.

A recreation center, called The Promenade, featuring a pool, fitness center, splash pad, event lawn, playground, and lakeside amphitheater is under construction. Fort Bend Independent School District expects to break ground soon on an elementary school in Harvest Green, which will join Bowie Middle School and Travis High School, both located on-site.
