Through carefully planned architectural building practices and carefully curated policies across each of his projects, Marcus Hiles has given back to Texans as well as to the environment, rewarding both personal and global perspectives. His selection of premiere plots of land, near the state’s best school districts, is furthered by 100s of acres given to the creation of green spaces and ongoing conservation easements, offering residents sound education for children along with ample outdoor activities for everyone. Hiles’ mission to increase the tree canopy in each development has birthed a movement that has installed more than 30,000 trees and removes more than 75 tons of carbon dioxide from the environment annually. As covered by a Fortune article on developing residential trends, “Zero Energy Ready (ZER) is today’s gold standard for efficient home design. Created by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2008, the program boasts over 14,000 energy-efficient homes resulting in millions of dollars in energy savings.” Hiles’ builds his neighborhoods with this program in mind, and because of his focus on high quality construction, choosing double tall dual pane windows, radiant barrier sheathing, Energy Star appliances, cellulose sound insulation, along with water-saving irrigation, more than $500,000 in utility savings have been ensured for residents, as well as lowered carbon emissions of 32,000 tons. The beauty created by his communities, in addition to nurturing social interaction between friends and family with recreation, fitness, five-star hotel amenities, and chic architectural design, have earned numerous awards from Satisfacts recognizing residents’ approval four years in a row.
