Four projects of premier residential developer Johnson Development Corp. — the most of any developer — have been listed on Houston Business Journal’s tally of the most active master-planned communities in the Houston area.

Johnson Development’s Riverstone community took the No. 1 spot on the annual list, which is based on the number of homes builders started in 2016. Another Johnson Development project — Woodforest in South Montgomery County — landed at No. 2 on the list. Two of Johnson Development’s Fort Bend projects also made the top 10 list — Sienna Plantation at No. 4 and Cross Creek Ranch at No. 6.

“In a Johnson development, homebuyers find a prime location, excellent schools and quality homebuilders, plus a few things that further set us apart — an abundant amenity mix and community lifestyle that isn’t replicated elsewhere,” said Doug Goff, Chief Operating Officer for Johnson Development. “Last year’s impressive number of home starts is simply builders trying to keep up with demand.”

This most recent ranking follows two reports earlier this year that saw the same four Johnson communities included on lists of the nation’s best-selling master-planned communities. Johnson Development again had the most projects on the list than any other developer.

In its 42nd year of development, Johnson Development has 17 active communities — 14 in the Houston area, two in Dallas-Fort Worth and one in Atlanta. For more information, visit
