Alex Kamkar, managing shareholder of The Woodlands-based Bold Fox Development and the property’s developer, said in a news release homesites will be delivered in about 18 months.
“With today’s current housing market, there is a real need for more developed land so more people can obtain the American dream of owning a home,” Kamkar said in an April news release. “Whether it’s communities of hundreds of acres or even pocket communities, like Cherrywood Estates at nearly 21 acres, anything we can make available opens up opportunities for people to move into home ownership and start building generational wealth.”
La Segarra will feature Spanish-inspired themes and a 1.8-acre lakeside recreation area.
“We’ve always envisioned this community to have a pastoral feel, but wanted to veer away from Texas rustic,” Kamkar said in the June release. “The Spanish Revival aesthetic will give La Segarra a defined identity and create something unique in the Houston residential landscape.”
La Segarra will have 658 homes upon build-out and 116 lots in the first section. It will be located within Royal ISD.
“Because of its small size, this is a school district where everyone knows each other and students have more opportunities to play sports, play in the band and participate in other extra-curricular activities,” Kamkar said in the April release.
The announcement comes only three months after The Signorelli Co. announced another Brookshire development dubbed Bluestem. That development will include 365 acres and more than 1,300 single-family homes on various homesite sizes.
The Signorelli Co. plans to break ground on Bluestem in 2022, officials said. That community will also feed into RISD, which—as of the 2020-21 school year—consisted of 2,476 students across 161 square miles, according to the Texas Education Agency.
The Bluestem community will also offer 64 acres of walking trails, reserves, green spaces, lakes and creeks as well as a 2-acre recreation space.
As of 2020 data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Brookshire had 5,066 residents across 1,787 households. The two new developments could bring in as many as 2,000 new homes.
