Hillwood Communities Celebrates Grand Opening of Amenity Center in Celina

CELINA, Texas [March 22, 2018] — Hillwood Communities, a Perot company, will celebrate the opening today of its new amenity center in the master-planned development Lilyana. 

With a resort-style pool, an outdoor kitchen and a pavilion, the amenity center will allow residents to connect with each other and act as the center of the community. 

Opening in time for summer, the 5,400-square-foot pool is the company’s largest in the DFW area and features shaded cabanas and tanning ledges. 

“This new amenity center takes full advantage of the stunning natural space that Lilyana has to offer,” said Elaine Ford, senior vice president of Hillwood Communities. “These amenities were designed to enhance the 50 acres of green space at Lilyana and we believe that it will become the heart of this community.”

With landscape design by the renowned Garthoff Designs and architecture by Larson & Pedigo, the structure will be surrounded by trails, a rolling lawn, a playground and pocket parks shaded by sculptural structures. 

An ideal location, Lilyana is in the booming town of Celina, 10 miles north of the shopping, dining and entertainment of Frisco and the “$5 Billion Mile.” Prominent builders, American Legend Homes, Village Builders, David Weekley Homes and Highland Homes, offer a variety of new home designs priced from the $300,000s to the $500,000s.

With 300 new homes in Phase 1 and 1,250 homes planned at build out, the 400-acre development boasts 50-acres of green space, including several community parks and miles of hike and bike trails. 

Lilyana is served by the highly acclaimed Prosper ISD schools, ranked among the best school districts in Texas, including Cockrell Elementary School, Reynolds

Middle School and Prosper High School. A future Prosper ISD elementary school is planned onsite within the community.
