Houston seems to be KB Home’s go-to multifamily market, seeing as the company just acquired a new tract of land in Spring Branch for the development of Hollister Commons, a residential community consisting of 44 single-family units.

With pricing expected to begin in the low $300,000s, the project will be developed inside the Beltway near the I-10 and Highway 290 and has been slated to open in the summer of 2015.

Consistent with KB Home’s homebuilding approach, residents will be able to customize almost everything about their future homes: lot location, floor plans, structural features, décor, technology and sustainability-focused components. This process will be facilitated by design consultants, who will work one-on-one with the buyers.

“Location is one of the most important factors buyers consider when deciding to purchase a home, and Hollister Commons presents an ideal opportunity to live in an established area that offers short commutes to thriving business and employment centers, well-regarded schools and shopping, entertainment and other metropolitan conveniences,” said Jim Harrison, president of KB Home’s Houston division. “KB homeowners at Hollister Commons will be able to take advantage of everything this vibrant area has to offer from the comfort of a smartly designed home personalized for the way they want to live.”

Founded in 1957, KB Home has developed more than half a million homes since its foundation. Because of the emphasis it puts on sustainable features, the company has received the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for four consecutive years.
