Crescent Communities, developer of The Groves, a master-planned community in northeast Houston, was named Developer of the Year on Saturday, October 1, at the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) PRISM Awards. In addition, The Groves received PRISM awards in five of the eight categories it entered including:
"What an amazing night for Crescent Communities and The Groves," said Jim Zimmerman, vice president of Crescent Communities in Houston. "The recognition from the GHBA is a testament to all the hard work and dedication our team has put in since breaking ground nearly three years ago. It is truly remarkable to see where we started, how far we have come and what lies ahead for The Groves."
The Groves also was a finalist in three categories: Master-Planned Community of the Year, Website of the Year and Event of the Year for its Grand Opening, and was one of two finalists for the Promotions Grand Award honoring excellence in marketing and advertising.
Developed by Crescent Communities, The Groves will feature about 2,200 single-family homes on home sites with carefully preserved mature trees. The Groves Welcome Center, inspired by the dogtrot or breezeway houses common in the South during the 19th and 20th centuries, features a pavilion overlooking a large outdoor plaza, fire pit, grill and The Great Lawn, an expansive area for casual recreation and community-wide events. When fully developed, The Groves also will include an amenity center with a resort-style pool, miles of trails, additional playgrounds, Madera Creek running the entire length of the community, a treehouse, and a fish camp, which opens in late October 2016, featuring a cabin and pond.
Located at 16807 West Lake Houston Pkwy., about one mile from Lake Houston, The Groves is five miles north of San Houston Parkway, approximately 10 miles northeast of Hwy. 59, 10 miles east of the George Bush International Airport and 25 miles northeast of the central business district in Houston. The Groves is served by the Humble Independent School District.
