Fort Bend Communities Win Trophies During Recent Awards Program

Three Fort Bend communities were awarded top prizes in the recent Houston’s Best PRISM Awards hosted by the Greater Houston Builders Association.

Fort Bend County was well represented in the recent Houston’s Best PRISMS Awards hosted by the Greater Houston Builders Association, with three Johnson Development communities taking home numerous awards.

Jordan Ranch in Fulshear was named Community of the Year and also won Community Amenity Center of the Year – Developer for its 1.5-acre Sunset Farm. Jordan Ranch is currently ranked among the nation’s 50 top-selling master-planned communities.

Cross Creek Ranch — another Fulshear community — was awarded Charitable Project of the Year for last year’s “Give Back, Build Hope” campaign. Through the initiative, Cross Creek Ranch donated nearly $20,000 to six Fort Bend charities: Abigail’s Place, Brookwood Community, Family Hope, Fort Bend PAWS, Rainbow Room and Texana Center.

The Cottage House amenity complex in Veranda won Community Recreation Center of the Year – Developer.

“We strive to give each Johnson community a distinct character that guides development, determining what kind of amenities we offer, lifestyle programming in the community and how the community is marketed,” said Michael Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson Development. “That kind of focused development often translates into awards such as these. But what is most important is our residents being happy where they live.”

Johnson Development — which also won the Grand Award for Developer of the Year — has six other Fort Bend communities, including Candela, the new Cross Creek West, Harvest Green, Imperial, Riverstone and Sienna. Cross Creek Ranch, Jordan Ranch and Veranda were the only Fort Bend communities entered into the Houston’s Best PRISM Awards.
