Trendmaker Homes, Village Builders and Perry Homesare among the first builders to be named in West Ranch, Friendswood Development Company's newest mater-planned community in Friendswood.
A ground-breaking was recently held at the 766-acre community that spans both sides of FM 518 between Bay Area Boulevard and FM 528.
West Ranch, which is located on the last large tract of land within the city of Friendswood, will comprise 1,500 homes priced from the $220,000s to the $600,000s.
A 20-acre town center and space for 43 retail sites is also part of the community's master plan. A total of 63 acres has been designated in West Ranch for commercial development.
West Ranch is also the location of a new proposed elementary school site, which has been selected by the Friendswood ISD.
A grand opening for the community is planned for early 2007.
