Massey Oaks Maintains the Massey Family Legacy

A $44 million loan was recently provided to Massey Oaks Development LP for the development of 372 single-family lots in the first phase of a new master-planned community called Massey Oaks. The four-phase development spans 356 acres and will have approximately 950 homesites upon completion.

Located just south of Houston in Pearland at the intersection of Harkey and McKeever roads, Massey Oaks will put an emphasis on mature tree preservation, large open spaces and numerous recreational features. Massey Oaks will preserve the oaks and other hardwood trees which were planted by the Massey family on Massey Ranch.

“We have been working on making our vision of Massey Oaks a reality for nearly three years, working hard to maintain the legacy of the Massey family, and the preservation of the land and countless trees that define the property while revitalizing the area,” said Ron Cobb, manager of Massey Oaks Development. 

Trez Capital provided the financing for Massey Oaks.

“Houston and the surrounding cities are rapidly expanding and this is one of the last tracts in that area of any size that could be developed,” says John Sullivan, vice president of Trez Capital. “Massey Oaks Development is taking prudent care to capture the character of the land with its storied history as a part of the Massey Ranch, which was founded by the Massey family of Pearland.”

Gromax Development is also behind the development. The phase one lots are expected to deliver in first quarter 2022.
