PRESERVING A WAY OF LIFE
In simplest terms, sustainability is the capacity to endure
Hillwood is committed to bringing long-term value to our customers and partners through real estate development and public-private partnerships. From innovative, smart residential and mixed-use communities to large-scale master-planned developments that represent every real estate asset class, we seek out diverse opportunities to apply our expertise and build strong, sustainable, and forward-thinking environments.
Hillwood has ranked among the largest real estate purchasers of renewable energy in the U.S. and is one of the largest in Texas, earning Green Power Partner recognition from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Alliance Town Center, the 900-acre mixed-use, retail center at AllianceTexas, was recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) with its LEED for Neighborhood Development certification, becoming one of only two projects in Texas, and among only 80 in the U.S. at the time, to receive the top designation.
Rooted in a strong entrepreneurial vision, Hillwood founded Independence Water, a separate water system that utilizes harvested rainwater stored in upland ponds, scaled to large business use applications, benefiting both AllianceTexas customers and adjacent municipalities. The program continues to grow as focus turns to water treatment plant reuse, targeting data center users as a cooling mechanism alternative and corporate campus users with large-scale irrigation needs.
Truly integrating Live Smart principles, Harvest, a modern single-family agrihood at AllianceTexas, hosts a six-acre community farm, which includes a demonstration garden, community garden and greenhouse. The gardens play a significant role in Harvest’s ongoing partnership with the North Texas Food Bank.
