Homebuilder heads west for over 175-person office in Fort Worth

Highland Homes plans to open a Fort Worth office that could house more than 175 employees as it continues to build on D-FW’s west side.

The employee-owned homebuilder currently has projects in 14 communities on over 30 lot positions in the Fort Worth area, such as Walsh in Aledo and M3 Ranch in Mansfield.

Highland Homes has leased space within Hillwood Commons II at Alliance Town Center, a four-story, 135,000-square-foot building located along Hillwood Parkway. Employees from multiple departments will utilize the office space once it has been completed this spring.

The homebuilder will be the first tenant in the Class A office building developed within the 900-acre mixed-use development AllianceTexas from Dallas-based Hillwood.

“In 2008, we had 180 sales in six Fort Worth communities compared to more than 900 in 2023,” Aaron Graham, Highland Homes’ president, said in a statement. “We’ve been fortunate to work with incredible developers over the years and helped build out master-planned communities like Lantana, Heritage, Hidden Lakes, Mira Lagos and Grand Peninsula, just to name a few.”

Plano-based Highland Homes was founded by siblings Rod Sanders and Jean Ann Brock in 1985. The company builds nearly 4,000 single-family houses in Texas each year with an emphasis on master-planned projects. Beyond Plano and Fort Worth, it also has offices in Austin, Houston and San Antonio. Its brands include Huntington Homes, HHS Residential and Highland HomeLoans.
