Beginning in the 1960s, master planned commercial developments began dominating the residential sector, and Texas has remained at the forefront of this trend. Las Colinas, established in 1973, serves as one of the first examples, still experiencing growth today. Citizens voted in 2006 to approve changes to deed restrictions, allowing for an even greater density of mixed use urban construction. Later in the 1970s, The Woodlands was developed, and still remains one of the premier residential and business destinations in greater Houston. The success of Marcus Hiles’ communities derives from the precedents he has set. Western Rim’s developments feature resort style amenities, meaning tenants never have to leave the grounds, if they do not wish to do so, and are built upon premiere lots that feature beautiful surrounding landscapes and convenient access to the surrounding area’s many attractions. Each property’s unique events and social activities encourage a healthy, active lifestyles and an accepting neighborhood environment.
