No forests around here, but plenty of dead brush and native vegetation (AKA weed).

Secret government missile silo?

I thought that's what the new indoor skydiving places were when they were under construction, particularly the one on I10 near memorial. I was thinking ventilation for a large underground structure, all while wondering what idiot would build a large underground structure in Houston.

An update, for those who have any interest (I am not affiliated with the builder):

I checked the website Williamshomes.com and this development now has a new name: Agave homes.

I estimated 50 new home, the website indicates 64 new homes (very tight, small parcels).

The website shows an artist illustration giving you the impression that there is a lot of space between homes...in reality, there is 10 ft clearance between the homes (the minimum required by bldg code).

Buyers can put their names on a waiting list, I guess the builder expects huge demand.

No prices yet, but the builder mentioned "from the 500s" - which is a very realistic price in this area...Watch how the prices escalate after the initial batch of homes are sold (that's usually the trend with new sub-divisions in CA).

A word about the construction: typical track homes, 2x4 framing, 2 car attached garages, concrete driveways, stucco exterior, tile roofs, etc. I didn't get a chance to see the interiors or the models, but I noticed that they are arranging a sales office in the first finished home's garage...

To be continued...

A new development of luxury town homes, 3 story with garages, brick exteriors, decks, no doubt upgraded finishes, up the road a bit are listed as starting at around $450.
The site is still being developed, but the houses are started with the first one turned into a sales office/model.

My how prices have risen since the last house I bought.

At 450 plus, they better offer some fantastic upgrades.

Who is the builder? Ryland Homes by any chance?

How much is the HOA monthly fee?

Yes ryland is the builder, not the developer. Very difficult site to develop. Lots of bedrock and slope. Don't know hoa fees.
