Following a year of robust home sales that placed Sienna Plantation among the nation’s top-selling master-planned communities, the Fort Bend development has been ranked No. 4 on a list of the Houston area’s most active residential developments.
Sienna ranked No. 4 on the list, published recently by the Houston Business Journal and based on 2016 construction starts. Builders started 364 homes in Sienna Plantation last year. The community was one of four Johnson Development projects including among the top 10.
In January, Sienna Plantation was named among the nation’s 30 top-selling developments by two independent research firms, John Burns Real Estate Consulting and Robert Charles Lesser & Co. It was Sienna’s seventh consecutive year to rank among the 30 best-selling communities.
“We are celebrating 20 years of home sales this year and still remain one of the area’s — and nation’s — top developments,” said Alvin San Miguel, General Manager of Sienna Plantation. “Beyond our beautiful homes, Fort Bend location, on-site schools and retail, we offer a vibrant lifestyle that is unmatched elsewhere. People want to be a Sienna resident and have all that goes along with that.”
Sienna Plantation currently has three recreation complexes with a fourth — the Sawmill Lake Club — opening this year. Other amenities include resort-style waterparks, the 160-acre Camp Sienna sports park, the Sienna Plantation Golf Club, hiking and biking trails and numerous neighborhood parks.
Also under construction in the community are two Fort Bend Independent School District schools — Leonetti Elementary opening in August and Thornton Middle School slated to open in 2018. Builders offer new homes priced from the $280,000s.
