Woodshore is a 205-acre mixed-use development in Clute, adjacent to Lake Jackson. It is located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Oyster Creek Drive and Dixie Drive, less than two miles east of SH288 which provides easy access to the Gulf Coast, the area’s petrochemical employment complex, and to Houston. The property has an abundance of natural characteristics including lakes, mature trees, and gently rolling terrain. It had been held by a single family for over 130 years prior to being purchased by DHK Clute, LLC in 2012.
“I have had the privilege of working with Doug Konopka for many years and can say that he cares deeply about the communities he develops, seeking innovative ways to maintain — and enhance — the natural setting that is there from the beginning. He is always true to his word, too, which is a rare quality these days.”
– Jo Douglass, Realtor | Texas Country Properties
Approximately 300 residential lots will be developed on a carefully crafted master plan incorporating abundant open spaces, lakes, recreation amenities, trails, and tree preservation areas. The lots are being developed in seven phases. In addition to the completed Woodshore Marketplace with its Kroger Marketplace, there are an additional seven acres for commercial development along Oyster Creek Drive.
The home sites in Sections One through Four have been developed, and construction has begun on Section Five.
The oversized home sites in Section One have been purchased by either Peltier Builders or Mercury Custom Homes and both continue to build beautiful, custom home elevations. CastleRock Communities has successfully completed homebuilding in Sections One and Two and is currently selling homes in Section Three. Our newest neighborhood is Section Four. Designed to protect a nature preserve that includes a wildlife observation area, K. Hovnanian Homes and Anglia Homes are now building homes.
Later this summer, CastleRock Communities will debut its new cottage home product in Section Five; ideal for empty nesters wanting a smaller lot with little yard maintenance. Stay tuned for exciting details!
“As Economic Development Director of the fastest growing community in Fort Bend County, I have worked with Doug Konopka (of DHK Development, Inc.) for eight years. Doug maintains the highest standards in development, but more importantly, he honors the environment, the history, and the citizens of the community. He is a man of integrity and by far one of the best developers I have had the pleasure to work with. Any city would be lucky to have Doug choose them to create his unique vision.”
– Cheryl Stalinsky | Economic Development Director, Fulshear, Tx
Woodshore has strong deed restrictions and architectural guidelines, a vigorous mature tree protection program, and a street tree planting requirement. These elements not only help protect home values, but help enhance them.

DHK Development, Inc., based in Houston, Texas, was founded by Douglas H. Konopka in 1991. The company develops both residential and mixed-use communities, as well as commercial projects. It also provides real estate consulting services to third-party property owners.
“As a homeowner in a community developed by DHK Development, I have experienced firsthand how a well-planned community improves my family’s lifestyle. Doug Konopka is known for giving thoughtful consideration to maximizing open space, and preserving natural areas and vegetation while providing attractive and convenient amenities.”
– Mike Hopfe | Fulshear, TX resident
Doug Konopka believes it is vital to incorporate a property’s natural characteristics into the development plan. Mature trees are protected, creeks and lakes are reserved as open space, and changing topography is accentuated. By employing the best consultants, selecting high-quality builders, and creating strong architectural guidelines and deed restrictions, home values are not only protected but typically enhanced.
Vice President/Project Manager Noah Worley acts as a liaison between the numerous parties directly involved in the development process. He assists in project feasibility analysis and land acquisition negotiations, and in the sale of developed lots and commercial acreage.
In addition to Woodshore in Clute, DHK Development, Inc. is currently developing communities and consulting on properties in Fulshear, Katy, Clear Lake/Webster, Spring Branch/Houston, and West Houston.
