HOUSTON CHRONICLE--MAY 5, 2009
Home sales in master-planned communities (MPCs) across the country may be sliding, but evidently that news hasn’t reached Houston yet.
The Bayou City dominated RCLCO’s list of the nation’s top-selling MPCs for 2008, with five local housing developments landing in the top ten.
Cinco Ranch, Telfair and Eagle Springs — all Newland Communities developments — each sold more homes last year than in the previous year.
Reported by Jennifer Dawson of the Houston Business Journal on April 3, Pathfinder Energy Services, Inc., an operating unit of Smith International, Inc. (a Fortune 500 Company), announced the construction of the Pathfinder Technology Center on a 34 acre site in Katy Texas. PathFinder’s core business lies in Logging-while-drilling and Measurement-while-drilling Services, Directional Drilling Services and Down-hole Drilling Motors.
Manhattan Construction, Trammell Crow Company and HOK Architects announce that the Energy Center I office development has received the 2008 Excellence Award by the Houston Chapter of the Association of Business Contractors (ABC).
