The Johnson Development Corp. is Houston’s most active developer, with four projects on a list of the area’s busiest residential communities, the most of any developer.
The four projects — Riverstone, Woodforest, Cross Creek Ranch and Sienna Plantation — account for 24 percent of the 7,812 homes started within the 25 developments named on the list. Three Johnson communities are among the top 10. Published by the Houston Business Journal on Nov. 19, the list ranks projects by the number of annual starts as of the second quarter of 2015.
“Johnson Development communities offer the ideal mix of state-of-the-art homes, unique amenities, access to quality schools, and prime locations,” said Doug Goff, Johnson Development’s Chief Operating Officer. “Buyers continue to seek out our developments and builders are responding accordingly, with a high number of home starts to keep up with demand.”
Riverstone in Fort Bend County is ranked No. 1 on the list, with 703 starts. The development also has been recognized as the most active community in the state of Texas and is ranked No. 4 in the nation for new home sales. Woodforest, located in South Montgomery County, is listed No. 3 on this year’s tally, with 482 home starts. Fulshear’s Cross Creek Ranch is ranked No. 6 with 408 homes started as of the second quarter of this year. Sienna Plantation, also in Fort Bend County, is ranked No. 12 on this year’s list with 287 home stats between the third quarter of 2014 and the second quarter of 2015.
The Johnson Development Corp. is celebrating 40 years as one of the nation’s preeminent land developers. It has 13 active projects in the Houston area, and recently announced the purchase of 590 acres in Richmond for a seventh Fort Bend community. Johnson is also developing the 8,100-acre Lake Arrowhead community in Atlanta and recently acquired Viridian, a 2,300-acre master-planned community in Arlington. In October, the company won Houston’s Best PRISM Grand Award-Developer for 2015 in a ceremony hosted by the Greater Houston Builders Association.
