I just signed the paper (build) with Westin homes in Willow Creek Farms.(LamarISD, they have homesites that zoned to KatyISD too)

reasons:
1. Much cheaper base price compare to Westin Homes in other community.(30k-50k cheaper)
2. Lower Tax rate (2.9% compare to 3.75% in Elyson)
3. No toll road
4. We don't and won't have children so we dont care about schools.
5. We don't think that we are going resale the house in very near furture.
6. We find a big lot that my CEO(AKA the wife)really likes.

After all, You are buying a house for YOU and YOUR family, just go with your heart.
Buy what you like, Dont buy what others like.

Congratulations! Westin makes very nice homes. The schools that the LCISD side of Willow Creek Farms is zoned to are excellent: Lindsay, Leaman Junior High, and Fulshear High...just as good as anything south of 1-10 in KISD.. Once the Texas Prairie Parkway is built (early 2020s), the only gripe that folks have in Northern LCISD--namely, a long driver to Leaman and Fulshear high--will be eliminated.
I also hear that there is plenty of retail planned for the I-10 corridor between 1463 and Jordan Ranch/Igloo Road...

I think Brookshire is getting ready for some real growth.

Is there seriosuly going to be more development west of 1463? How far west are developers planning to build? The area is far enough already, where exactly will the people living in these communities commute to?

There are entry level communities ready to break ground off 359 in Fulshear

There's a very large amount of residential already planned or under development west of 1463.

Iíll be working out near Igloo Road once my employer builds our new facility.
Not everyone works In the traditional employment centers. Hell people working from home is on the rise, so not everyone has to be 15 mins from downtown.

Houston continues to grow in a both a centralized and decentralized direction. Centralized in that Inner Loop is getting denser/growing upward; And decentralized, in that as it expands outward, nodes employment centers emerge--think Energy Corridor, Clear Lake, Greenspoint, Woodlands, Sugerland, etc... Most people who live all the way out here tend to commute to Energy Corridor and other points not in downtown Houston. My 45 minute commute to EC isnt that bad. I could conceivably live at the Brazos River (i.e. West of Brookshire) and still have a reasonable commute (IMO:a 45 minute commute is a reasonable commute for a 20th century US city dweller).

A 45 minute commute including traffic or not?

45 minutes with traffic. I-10 expansion has made commute into EC so much smoother...
