YOU'RE IN IT
To help people Live Smart in the future, Hillwood has created a think tank called InnovationHillwood. This task force is comprised of our development team, planners, builder partners and industry experts and is challenged to develop forward-thinking initiatives in community design, technology, conservation and education. Our goal? To create new ways to meet the increasing demands of today's homeowners for lifestyles that make use of smarter solutions.
Hillwood Communities broke ground on Union Park, a 787-acre master-planned community located in the “sweet spot” of the Highway 380 Corridor in Little Elm, Texas. The center gathering spot of the $600 million project will be a wooded, 35-acre park featuring open greenbelts, ponds, trails, an amenity center and an amphitheater.
Located along the U.S. Highway 380 corridor, Union Park will feature quality lifestyle-driven community with approximately 2,400 single-family homes and an abundance of parks and open space. The idea is to create a central hub where residents will come together to play, relax and enjoy community-wide activities and events.
Beautiful, energy-efficient homes will be built by American Legend Homes, Drees Homes, Emerald Homes, Highland Homes and Plantation Homes from the mid-$200s to the $400s.
Hillwood Communities, a Perot company, has closed on a 755-acre, $700 million residential community, Wolf Ranch, in Georgetown, Texas. Wolf Ranch consists of two separate tracts located off of Wolf Ranch Parkway and Highway 29 in the city’s extra-territorial jurisdiction.
“The city of Georgetown is currently witnessing extraordinary growth, and we believe this is the ideal time to create a master-planned community that meets its changing needs,” said Brian Carlock, Senior Vice President of Hillwood Communities. “We look forward to building what will be Georgetown’s largest master planned community as more families move to the area for the outstanding quality of life, school districts and Hill Country views.”
Wolf Ranch will include approximately 1700 single-family homes, 388 multifamily units, 350 age-targeted units and 20 acres of commercial development. Home prices are expected to range from the high $200,000s to around $550,000. Groundbreaking is expected to occur in the middle of 2015, with model homes available the following spring.
