Land Development


Our experienced Land Development team has helped clients across Texas realize their visions since our founding in 1945. Some of our major completed or nearly completed projects include South Shore Harbour, a 2,000-acre mixed-use development in League City; the 3,200-acre Commons of Lake Houston near Kingwood; and Valley Ranch, a 1,400-acre, master-planned community north of Houston. 


Our land development clients benefit from DEC’s comprehensive experience in transportation, water resources and public infrastructure. Our project managers are big-picture thinkers who focus on design details and our clients’ financial success. We also understand the advantages of maximizing reimbursements from municipal utility districts (MUDs), improvement districts and tax increment reinvest zones (TIRZs).
