Summerwood Facts and History
Summerwood is a master planned community of 3200 homes on Lake Houston on 1500 acres in the northeast quadrant of the Greater Houston area. Summerwood offers a convenient location just 15 minutes from George Bush Intercontinental Airport and just over 20 miles to Downtown Houston via convenient access to Beltway 8. Summerwood was developed by McCord Development.

The same developer is also in the works of developing Generation Park - a business park on 4000 acres that will be the home of FMC Technip.
