Master-Planned Communities

The term Master-Planned Community (MPC) describes many of the larger residential neighborhoods that skirt the perimeters of Houston and generally provide a comprehensive package of residential amenities, shopping areas, schools and at least a secondary center of employment. Often the housing options will span from apartment units to single-family homes, all within the boundaries of the MPC. It is conceivable that a family residing in a large, established MPC could take care of all its desires and needs, seldom venturing away from the neighborhood. Following is a list of some of Houston's larger master-planned communities. Your relocation specialist can direct you to more such communities throughout the Houston area.
