Hillwood Communities underway with 2,500-home community called Treeline

Dallas-based Hillwood Communities plans to bring a 2,500-home development to the City of Justin, a community that stands to double its population within the next decade. 

Located on a 800-acre property along FM 407 in Denton County, the forthcoming development will also include an elementary school, community parks and amenities as well as  retaill. Called “Treeline,” the project will deliver its first homes by mid-2025, according to a news release. 

Hillwood Communities has partnered with builders such as American Legend Homes, Beazer Homes, David Weekley Homes, D.R. Horton, Highland Homes, HistoryMaker Homes, Pulte Homes, and Tri Pointe Homes for the first phase. The first phase has begun. 

“At Treeline, we’ve curated an idyllic environment where families will feel a true sense of belonging,” said Fred Balda, president of Hillwood Communities, in a prepared statement. “Residents can forge a profound connection with nature and their neighbors through a lifestyle program that activates an array of amenities, including park spaces with themed treehouses.”

The first phase will include 40-foot, 45-foot and 50-foot lots. Phase 1 amenities in design include an expansive amenity center, a library treehouse, a cloud spotting and stargazing treehouse, an orchard park and an observation deck. The main amenity center is planned to have an indoor event space, HOA offices, an amphitheater lawn, an event lawn, pickleball courts, a food truck area, a resort-style pool, a gaming treehouse and an adventure park.

“Treeline stands as an exciting upcoming master-planned community. The community will offer a blend of high-quality builders, exceptional land planning and desirable amenities. Its strategic location near AllianceTexas and within the esteemed Northwest ISD school system will make it a coveted choice for prospective homeowners,” said Ted Wilson, principal at Residential Strategies, in a prepared statement.

Last year, Hillwood Communities partnered with BB Living on a single-family-rental neighborhood in the Harvest community. BB Living is building 191 rental homes in Harvest that range from three to four bedrooms and 1,800 square feet to 2,500 square feet. Harvest is located in Northlake and Argyle at I-35W and FM 407, just north of State Highway 114. 

The company also recently made moves to put together its third Houston-area master-planned community. The H. Ross Perot Jr.-owned company purchased 540 acres in western League City just south of West Ranch, a Friendswood Development Co. community. The developer plans to extend West Boulevard south toward the proposed Section B of the Grand Parkway, Russell Bynum, Hillwood Communities’ Houston general manager, told the Houston Business Journal.

When complete, the community will include 1,250 single-family lots, with homes ranging from $400,000 to $700,000.
