Newland named Green Builder’s Developer of the Year
Green Home Builder Magazine has named Newland, the developer of Hollyhock, as its Developer of the Year for 2019, acknowledging over five decades of placemaking and integration of sustainability practices in building mixed-use communities throughout the nation.
The article points out the partnerships Newland forms with North American Sekisui House, builders, architects, local officials, and many others to envision and build communities that works with how people live now and well into the future.
“We believe that sustainability is an evolving path, and if we do our jobs correctly, our communities will be a better place 50, 100 years from today; that’s what sustainability really means,” said Newland Chief Executive Officer Ted Nelson, in an interview with Green Home Builder.
“Our placemaking is a sustainable, holistic approach, creating communities that respect the individual, the land, the natural environment, and the unique influence of the local marketplace,” Nelson said. “Newland’s sustainability mission and principles are integral to the future of place—serving as our ‘true north’ in envisioning and creating communities that conserve resources, preserve open space, and educate the community at large on sustainability practices.”
Newland’s commitment to placemaking and sustainable development is evident throughout Hollyhock, which devotes more than 20 acres to parks, trails and natural open spaces. Fields House and Fields Park were designed as places where residents come together all year long for event and activities. Welcoming residents with a giant gleaming sculpture, Dandelion Park is a favorite place for playground playdates. And several miles of trails meander throughout the community.
Recognizing the importance of quality schools to residents, Newland worked closely with the highly regarded Frisco Independent School District to identify two school sites at Hollyhock. A new Frisco ISD elementary school will open at Hollyhock in 2021, and the district plans to open a new high school campus in 2022.
