Discovery at Spring Trails once touted as the first ecomagination community in Northwest Houston never really got off the ground. The plan was to develop an 1,100 acre community in a prime location off Riley Fuzzel (path of the proposed Grand Parkway) include resort style amenities and add a green element with a mandatory requirement for solar panels on all homes.
In 2008, the first homes were built and the community was gaining significant buzz over its green element. But then economy took a nose dive. The amenities were never built. The mandatory solar panel requirement was changed to voluntary and in 2011 the developer was forced into bankruptcy.
Fast forward to 2012 – the economy is turning around and with the anticipation of the opening of the EXXON MOBIL campus in 2014, new housing starts in Spring and the Woodlands are booming. The timing is right for a ressurection of the Discovery at Spring Trails development.
Johnson Development Corporation, the developer of Fall Creek, Woodforest, and other Houston area communities, acquires the Discovery at Spring Trails development and rebrands it Harmony. Along with the acquisition, Johnson Development announced plans to invest $5.8 million in a resort style pool and splashpad to open in the summer of 2013.
New builders of Ashton Woods, Darling Homes, Perry, and Village Builders make a commitment to join the existing builders of Westin, Highland Homes, First Texas, and CastleRock in Harmony.
Discovery at Spring Trails was a fatality of the wrong product at the wrong time. Due to its timing, location, job growth (EXXON MOBIL impact) and its strong developer, the Harmony development is going to take off.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
