Manvel city council approved two final plats in the Pomona Master Planned development that is currently under construction west of Hwy 288 at CR 101. The plats encompass over 38 acres and will include a model home section and the first phase of 75-foot lots.
Pomona was the name first given to Manvel when it was settled more than a century ago. The name was changed to Manvel when it was determined another Pomona already existed in far west Texas. The development comprises 1000 acres and is expected to eventually contain approximately 2,100 single family homes.
Hillwood Communities and McGuyer Homebuilders Inc. are partnering in the development and describe their vision for the project as bridging “today’s modern lifestyle conveniences to a simpler, laid-back character found in the charming Gulf Coast communities of the South.” Mustang Bayou is expected to define the community which will “feature amenities, schools and gathering spaces linked by an extensive trail system. More than 300 acres of the property will remain open space in the form of wetlands and protective waters. Improvements to the bayou include planting native grasses and trees.”
The model homes should be available for public viewing early next year. Current builders in the community include Highland Homes, David Weekley Homes, Coventry Homes, Plantation Homes and Trendmaker Homes. Pomona’s residents will enjoy access to retail and major employment areas like The Pearland Town Center, The Houston Medical Center, Houston Hobby Airport, Downtown Houston, The Galleria and Greenway Plaza.
