Since the 1960s, master planned commercial developments have dominated the residential sector, and Texas has been at the forefront of this trend. Las Colinas, established in 1973, was one of the first such examples, and is still experiencing growth today. In 2006, citizens voted to approve changes to deed restrictions to allow an even greater density of urban mixed use construction. Later in the 1970s, The Woodlands was created, and still stands as one of the premier residential and business destinations in the Houston area. The success of Marcus Hiles’ business derives from the precedents these great communities set. Western Rim’s developments feature resort style amenities so that their tenants never have to leave the grounds, if they so choose, and are built upon carefully selected lots that feature beautiful natural landscapes and convenient access to Texas’ many attractions. Each property’s unique planned events and social activities promote healthy, active lifestyles and foster accepting, neighboring environments.
