The Signorelli Company Signs Academy Sports + Outdoors as a Third Anchor for Valley Ranch Town Center

April 12, 2016

 Opening this Fall, Valley Ranch Town Center is Situated Within the 1,400-Acre Master-Planned Community of Valley Ranch

The Signorelli Company, a leader among real estate developers in Texas, has announced that Academy Sports + Outdoors, the premier sports, outdoor and lifestyle retailer, has signed on as the third major anchor store for Valley Ranch Town Center, a new retail district situated inside the master-planned community of Valley Ranch. This 1,400-acre community is ideally located at the intersection of US 59 North and the Grand Parkway, just north of Kingwood.

"We are excited to welcome Academy to Valley Ranch Town Center, a 240-acre district that will encompass approximately 1.5 million square feet of retail," said Danny Signorelli, President and CEO of The Signorelli Company. "With the opening of the Grand Parkway at the entrance to Valley Ranch, leasing and construction are now well underway. In addition to Academy, a Kroger Marketplace® is under construction as well as Sam’s Club. The first phase of development is scheduled to open this fall."

Also in negotiations are other big box retailers and smaller shops, a selection of restaurants, a multi-attraction cinema, and a 10,000-seat amphitheater. The retail district will be bordered by a 135-acre park called Town Grove, a natural gathering place for residents and visitors. Texan

Drive Stadium, a state-of-the-art New Caney ISD football stadium that serves as a venue for community-wide special events, opened in 2014 in Town Center.

"Valley Ranch Town Center is at the epicenter of a market that is rapidly emerging in northeast Houston," Signorelli said. "It is a very advantageous location for retail development and leasing. It will also provide an added attraction to homebuyers desiring shopping, dining and entertainment close to home."

New homes in a variety of price ranges starting in the $200s are also available in the new Azalea District of Valley Ranch, along with several new parks and greenspaces throughout the wooded community. Featured homebuilders include Signorelli Homes, First America Homes, and Legend Homes. At final completion, Valley Ranch is planned to include approximately 2,500 homes and townhomes and 1,000 multi-family residences.

Valley Ranch is strategically located within minutes of Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston’s Central Business District, The Galleria/Uptown, The Woodlands, and minutes from ExxonMobil’s new 385-acre campus in Spring – making it one of the closest commutes of all of the recently announced master-planned communities.
