Johnson Development Announces Vision for Northwest Harris County Community

HOCKLEY — Home is where the heart is and Johnson Development is working to ensure its newest community will be where residents can find joy.


Jubilee, a 1,620-acre community in Hockley just south of Highway 290 a few miles from the Grand Parkway, will be centered on joy, with a focus on improving residents’ physical, emotional and mental well-being.


“We want to raise the bar for how a community can better the lives of the individuals that live in it,” said Larry Johnson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson Development. “Every aspect of this new community is being intentionally designed to promote positivity, allowing residents to decompress from the everyday grind and connect with nature and each other.”


The development team is taking a holistic approach to the community’s design, targeting everything from the layout of streets, placement of parks and amenity architecture to spark happiness and surround residents with positivity. Positivity also was a deciding factor in the community’s name.


“Jubilee has multiple positive interpretations,” said Trey Reichert, General Manager of the community. “It represents joy, is energetic and has nuances of community. These concepts will be well represented in the mindful spaces we are designing for residents.


“Connection with others is proven to enhance a person’s well-being and Jubilee will be all about helping residents feel happy and healthy.”


Planning for Jubilee started well before the pandemic, but Reichert admits its vision is particularly impactful now.


“The pandemic has turned our focus to health and has shown us just how important where you live can be,” he said. “Imagine living in a home that has all the room you need in a community specifically designed to elicit peace and harmony. It’s something we can all use right now.”


Johnson Development acquired the property — southwest of U.S. Highway 290 and Katy Hockley Road a few miles west of the Grand Parkway — in 2017. It is the developer’s 19th active community and first in northwest Houston. Planned for approximately 4,800 homes, pre-sales are expected to begin in early 2023.


Established in 1975, Johnson Development has had more communities ranked among the top-selling than any other developer in the nation since 2014. For more information, visit
