Earlier this year, Dallas-based developer Ross Perot Jr. announced the expansion of his company Hillwood Communities into the Houston market, and this week, it completed the first phase of Pomona, its first master-planned community in Houston.
Located west of Highway 288 and south of Pearland, the 1,000-acre MPC has, since homebuilding began about a year ago, sold 105 of the 300 homes set to be made available during the project’s first phase. However, the ultimate home total is anticipated to be about 2,100.
One of the largest hallmarks of Pomona’s first phase of construction is the Camp Pomona recreational center, which was completed last week; the Pearland Chamber of Commerce helped celebrate the center during a recent ribbon cutting, the Houston Chronicle reported.
In an interview with the Chronicle, Russell Bynum, Pomona’s general manager, touted the 2,900-square-foot facility, with nine private cabanas, two pools, offices and conferences rooms, as a “facility that could be utilized by all residents and that would bring the Pomona community together,” he said.
