Houston's Premier Developer
For more than 54 years, Friendswood Development Company has been creating and perfecting the concept of the master-planned community. Today, Friendswood Development Company offers communities spanning from the north to the south areas of the Houston market, with prices ranging from the high $100,000s to more than $1 million.
Our locations feature highly-acclaimed schools, surrounding conveniences and easy access to major roadways. Although each location offers a different look and feel of its own, they share in their outstanding master plan created for residents today and generations to come.
Friendswood Development Company's approach to development begins with the design of a master plan concept that carefully considers street patterns, mixed uses and amenities that accentuate the beauty of the natural landscape. Plans always include a keen sense of respect for the uniqueness of each individual tract of land and leverage the company's 54 years of experience to deliver communities that residents love to call home. Friendswood Development Company prides itself on the exciting lifestyle amenities, award-winning schooling systems, convenient shopping and dining centers, and top-tier list of building partners that each one of their developments offers. The company's unrivaled portfolio of 34 active communities across Greater Houston provides a wide array of product from the high $100’s to the $1M+ enabling homeownership opportunities for all levels of prospective buyers.
The First Master-Planned Community
As the 1960s began, so did Friendswood Development Company, with the same sense of excitement and optimism for a more promising future. Originally of Exxon Corporation, we brought the American dream to our first master-planned community: Clear Lake City.
New Land Acquisitions
While providing a community for many employees of the Johnson Space Center in Clear Lake City, Friendswood Development Company was soaring to new heights itself with exciting land acquisitions in other parts of the Houston area.
The Livable Forest
While Intel introduced its first microprocessor, Friendswood Development Company introduced generations of families to the natural wonders of The Livable Forest, also known as Kingwood. Other communities would soon follow, including Copperfield in West Houston.
It's All Here Now!
Friendswood Development Company navigated the ups and downs of the fluctuating economy of the 1980s with a strong leadership position in Houston. While improving on our success in our existing communities, we introduced a new community called Fairfield, which would bring excellent home values to many new families.
With the excitement of a new Millennium and ownership by Lennar Corporation, Friendswood Development Company is advancing its tradition of master-planned community development into smaller family neighborhoods, while continuing our commitment to providing a well-planned mix of new home builders, fabulous amenities and convenient locations.
