Master Planned Communities
Master Planned Communities, typically involving the development of more than 1,000 acres, present unique legal, political, and financial challenges. ABHR attorneys possess a breadth of experience, developed over the last 40 years, working on the development of master planned communities.
ABHR attorneys have been associated with many of the most highly regarded and successful master planned communities in the greater Houston area, including Cinco Ranch, First Colony, New Territory, Shadow Creek Ranch, Sienna Plantation, Telfair, Towne Lake, and Cross Creek Ranch. In the Austin area, ABHR represents districts in the master planned communities of Teravista, Falcon Pointe, Rocky Creek, Sweetwater, Tavisso, Water Oak, and Wolf Ranch.
ABHR attorneys provide consultation on these developments from initial conceptualization of financing mechanisms to governmental approvals, municipal and inter-local contract negotiations, and creation of special districts. ABHR also provides ongoing representation of the special districts as the neighborhoods are fully developed. A well-considered legal structure crafted at the initiation of a large scale development project establishes a strong foundation for sound development financing and adds to the overall value of the community during development and long afterwards.
