New Residential Communities Spur Increased Commercial Land

It doesn’t take much of a drive to escape out of the fourth-largest city in the U.S. and head into nature.

“Heading just north of The Woodlands, there is absolutely beautiful, rolling topography,” says Peter Barnhart, Executive Vice President and Partner at Caldwell Companies.

That’s the setting for Chambers Creek, Caldwell’s newest 1,200-acre active adult community in Willis, TX offering 4,000 homes to those age 55 and better. The premier 55+ community, which will be the largest of its kind in the Houston area, features amenities such as a golf course designed by Tom Lehman, a marina connected to Lake Conroe, miles of hiking and biking trails, and so much more.

“It’s the prettiest piece of property we’ve developed in Houston,” says Barnhart. “It has a 20-mile view from a hill that looks out over Lake Conroe. It’s loaded with lakes. We’re creating a lifestyle like I’ve never seen in Houston, and we’re anticipating more of a national draw.” Being the largest active adult community developer in this region for over 15 years now, Caldwell has a passion for providing housing designed specifically for those 55 and up.

Looking at the tract, he says it checked all the boxes of a great site, but the biggest selling point was the spectacular location. Not only does the site have great access to Interstate 45 it is also located right in the path of growth. The Conroe/Willis area is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Conroe’s population has more than doubled since 2000 according to the Conroe Economic Development Council. Click to read more at
