Joe Southern Editor

Entering its 10th year, Cross Creek Ranch has much to offer

W

hen I first moved to Rosenberg at the end of 2008, it was to take a job working for the newspaper in Hempstead. I had an hour-long commute each way through a bunch of country back roads. Twice a day I would pass through the tiny town of Fulshear and then quickly disappear into wide expanses of crop land and open fields. You can’t do that anymore. For the three years that I made that drive I watched as the empty field east of Fulshear was transformed into Cross Creek Ranch – one of the most unique and fastest-growing communities in the region. Annexed by Fulshear, Cross Creek Ranch has helped transform the sleepy little hamlet into a bustling, thriving community. The master planned community by Johnson Development has helped push Fulshear’s population from 1,100 residents in 2010 to more than 6,000 now, and it continues to explode as Fulshear becomes one of the fastest growing and more desirable places to live in Fort Bend County. Utilizing the landscape architectural design firm SWA Group, Johnson Development created a natural, healthy habitat for wildlife through reforestation and the creation of “living edges” along the banks of a restored Flewellen Creek. “Ten years ago, the centerpiece amenity of a master-planned community was usually a golf course,” said Rob Bamford, general manager of Cross Creek Ranch. “The idea that natural elements such as a beautiful creek and wetlands area could be developed and attract buyers was unheard of.”

Today residents have abundant opportunities to interact with nature, whether it’s hiking and biking nearly 30 miles of wildflower-dotted trails or observing birds and other wildlife from the boardwalks surrounding the 50-acre polishing pond and wildlife habitat. It’s all part of the 3,200-acre community that is currently home to about 2,700 families with room to more than double that. The community features a growing roster of resort-inspired amenities that cater to every age and stage of life. One of our most popular is the Adventure Island Water Park and its 140foot water slide that starts on top of The Hill and ends in the swimming pool. Another summer favorite is Flewellen Creek Pool. A third complex, Greenthread Park, opens early next year. The complex will have interactive water features, sunbathing shelves, a pavilion, event lawn, trails and a playground. Residents can enjoy a vigorous workout at the 6,000-squarefoot on-site fitness center. Served by Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated ISD, Cross Creek Ranch has some of the newest and finest educational opportunities for children. To learn more about Cross Creek Ranch and its many offerings, please see the story inside this edition.

MD Anderson Cancer Center celebrates five years of Moon Shots

T

he University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center celebrates the five-year anniversary of its Moon Shots Program, a collaborative effort to accelerate the development of scientific discoveries into clinical advances that save patients’ lives. Launched in the fall of 2012, the program already has yielded notable discoveries across the spectrum of cancer care, including prevention, early detection and treatment, and has inspired philanthropic support totaling more than $451 million. “With its unique infrastructure and team-science approach, the Moon Shots Program is well-positioned to continue translating discoveries into the patient care setting for many years to come,” said Marshall E. Hicks, M.D., president ad interim. “We have only begun to realize the successes of the program.” First inspired by MD Anderson’s fourth full-time president Ronald A. DePinho, M.D., the program established focused, multidisciplinary teams of clinicians and researchers tasked with developing comprehensive approaches to improving the lives of patients and reducing cancer mortality. Each component of the program undergoes regular internal and external peerreview to prioritize and direct ongoing efforts, focusing on those most likely to have significant, rapid impact for patients. Beginning with six Moon Shots, the program was expanded in 2015 for a total of 13 disease-focused initiatives. The Moon Shots Program also established

10 platforms, which provide unique expertise, technical support and novel infrastructure to support the program’s team science approach and accelerate the translation of data and discoveries for patients’ benefit. Philanthropic funding goes directly to support these areas of priority research and program infrastructure. MD Anderson’s Moon Shots Program also served as an inspiration for the national Cancer Moonshot, which works toward the same goal, combining innovation and collaboration to make therapies available to more patients on a national scale. Two MD Anderson faculty serve on the Blue Ribbon Advisory panel to the national Cancer Moonshot, providing guidance and recommendations to the national effort.

Novel therapeutic approaches highlight program achievements

“Our singular vision of improving patient care has catalyzed our teams toward novel discoveries that, quite simply, would not have occurred without such focus,” said Giulio Draetta, M.D., Ph.D., co-leader of the Moon Shots Program, senior vice president, Discovery and Platforms and chief academic officer ad interim. “In five years, we have made notable advances for patients – most of which would not have been possible without the Moon Shots Program.” Some of those accomplishments include: The Institute for Applied Cancer Science (IACS), a Moon Shots platform, has advanced a novel drug

from discovery to clinical trials for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in collaboration with the Myelodysplastic Syndromes and Acute Myeloid Leukemia Moon Shot™. The drug, which disrupts energy production in cancer cells, will soon advance to clinical trials in patients with solid tumors. The entire development pipeline, from laboratory discovery through clinical trials, has been managed exclusively by the Moon Shots Program, which made possible the accelerated translation to the patient care setting in fewer than five years. The Lung Cancer Moon Shot has identified and resurrected an abandoned targeted therapy, poziotinib, for treating a rare group of lung cancer patients with specific treatment-resistant mutations. These patients, who previously had no effective treatment options, are seeing significant response rates in current phase II clinical trials. The pre-clinical discovery, testing, and current clinical trials were catalyzed by multidisciplinary efforts and platform support with the goal of meeting this unmet need in lung cancer patients. The Melanoma Moon Shot has opened clinical trials to evaluate neoadjuvant, or pre-surgical, treatment for high-risk patients with melanoma who would otherwise undergo surgery. Neoadjuvant therapy is a standard practice in other cancers, such as breast, but this approach was not previously feasible in melanoma CONTINUED PAGE 7

Homebuyers can find joy in Aliana

ew sections in fast-selling Aliana are now open for presales as the community moves into an expected busy holiday season. With the latest demand for homes in Aliana, a 2,000acre development that is ranked the No. 2 top-selling community in the Houston area by housing research firm Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO), the pace has been stepped up to release more than 200 new homesites for the 2017 holiday season. The new homesites will accommodate a variety of homes and appeal to families of all sizes. Pricing will start in the $270,000s. Aliana, a Richmond community now has 18 models open daily for touring and a wide selection of underconstruction and move-in ready homes available. “Our award-winning builders are ready to answer the needs of homebuyers, whatever they may be,” said Linda Kilgore, Marketing Director with Aliana Development Company. “We have one- and two-story homes available with up to six bedrooms and a four-car garage. The homes include today’s must-have design features such as expansive common areas, substantial kitchen islands, courtyards, covered outdoor living spaces and current color palettes.” A dozen national and regional builders offer home designs priced from the $270,000s in Aliana: Ashton Woods, CalAtlantic Homes, Coventry Homes, Highland Homes, J. Patrick Homes, Meritage Homes, Partners in Building, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Sitterle Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Village Builders. Residents of Aliana enjoy a generous amenity package, including a second community recreation center that opened this year, The Westmoor Club at Aliana. The facility offers a second on-site 24-hour fitness center, rental

spaces, a game room with ping pong, arcade basketball and foosball — along with additional tennis courts, an event lawn, community pool and splash pad — and a dynamic play area with a cargo net and other climbing features. The new recreation center complements the Club at Aliana, which offers an expansive swim center that includes a lap pool, resort pool, a twisting water slide, splash pad and lounging areas. Parks and trails can be found throughout the community. Aliana residents also will enjoy proximity to the nation’s first fully reimagined Target slated to be open for

this holiday season. The 124,000-square foot store will feature upgraded décor, an enhanced grocery department, a wine and beer shop and easy on-site delivery of online orders. The H-E-B Aliana Market also is open within the community. “The mix of well-crafted homes and world-class amenities create an inviting combination that is hard to resist,” Kilgore said. “Add in our location along the Grand Parkway just north of Highway 59, and it’s obvious why so many people have made their home in Aliana.” Learn more at www.AlianaHouston.com.

Now celebrating 20 years, Sienna Plantation was named Master-Planned Community of the Year during the recent Houston’s Best PRISM Awards hosted by the Greater Houston Builders Association.

Sienna Plantation wins Community of the Year

S

ienna Plantation edged out its younger competitors at the Oct. 7 Greater Houston Business Association’s (GHBA) Houston’s Best PRISM Awards to take home the coveted Master-Planned Community of the Year award. Established 20 years ago by Johnson Development Corp., the top-selling Fort Bend community has never rested on its laurels, consistently attracting homebuyers with an everincreasing list of amenities, on-site schools and innovative additions. “Sienna Plantation is, in many ways, the blueprint for all of the master-planned communities that followed it,” said Alvin San Miguel, General Manager of Sienna Plantation. “Being recognized with this prestigious award indicates that we are doing something right. Twenty years down the road, Sienna is still Houston’s premier lifestyle community.” That lifestyle includes three water parks, six on-site schools, more than 35 miles of trails, resident-only events and more than 100 acres of parks and playgrounds.

Committed to sustainability, Sienna’s developers have spent money and care in the preservation of century-old oaks and forested areas throughout the development. Trails feature crushed granite pathways, glimpses of wildlife and a stop at a scenic overlook as well as lakes for fishing and an amphitheater ensconced on a large hill. The result has been strong buyer demand, prompting the recent opening of three new neighborhoods in the community’s Village of Sawmill Lake — which welcomed the opening Sienna’s fourth recreation complex, Sawmill Lake Club, this month. Leonetti Elementary, the development’s fourth on-site elementary opened in August. It will be joined by Thornton Middle School next year. “We are constantly looking for new ways to better serve our residents,” San Miguel said. “It’s why we are considered one of the top-selling communities in the nation and contributed to our winning this award.” December 2017 ★ Fort Bend / Katy Business Journal

PRISM Awards are presented annually by the GHBA as part of its recognition of the industry’s top performers in sales, marketing and development. Learn more at www.siennaplantation.com.

due to a lack of active therapies. These trials will advance insights on the best approaches to treating patients after surgery. Additionally, using Moon Shot platforms, deep analyses of patient samples from these trials are being carried out to better understand why treatments do or do not work for all melanoma patients and guide new trial development.

Primed for increasing impact

“We have made great strides in five years, but perhaps the most important achievement is the foundation upon which current and future program discoveries will be made and lives saved,” said Andy Futreal, Ph.D., chair of Genomic Medicine and co-leader of the Moon Shots Program. “With this infrastructure, our tremendous teams of scientists, together with collaborators here and abroad, are learning more each day from the very individuals we remain committed to helping – our patients.” The research platforms, which work across the Moon Shots, continue to advance therapies to the clinic and evaluate patient data to refine clinical strategies, ensuring patients receive the best care specific to their cancer. The APOLLO platform is performing large-scale analysis of patient samples over time, generating novel data to better understand how tumors evolve resistance to certain treatments, making cancers more predictable and easier to treat. This platform is harnessing the power of big data and sharing across disciplines to inform better care of patients with all cancer types.

IACS is advancing multiple novel drugs toward the clinic, with the next expected to enter clinical trials in 2018. Additionally, the Immunotherapy platform will continue advancing immune-based therapies to make this game-changing treatment available to more patients. Currently, there are more than 150 clinical studies at MD Anderson that are being accelerated as a result of the Moon Shots Program, investigating both novel drug compounds as well as new approaches to improve the effectiveness of existing drugs. The Moon Shots Program also is committed to advancing evidence-based cancer prevention and control practices, which have the potential to prevent up to 50 percent of cancers in future generations. The Cancer Prevention and Control platform has established a range of targeted initiatives designed to advance early detection approaches, spread the use of actions known to reduce cancer risk, and improve access to screening and prevention services. Moon Shots experts also have served as educational resources for legislators across the country on policies related to cancer prevention and control. “The Moon Shots Program is an extraordinary platform for team-based science that has inspired donor support for transformative research that otherwise may not have been funded,” said Peter WT Pisters, M.D., incoming president of MD Anderson. “We have an obligation to lead in cancer prevention and control while working to accelerate improvements in patient outcomes – all of which is possible through the Moon Shots Program and MD Anderson’s commitment to Making Cancer History.”

A decade later, Johnson Development has delivered one of the most sought-after master-planned communities in the nation. Currently home to more than 2,700 families, Cross Creek Ranch has not only redefined what a master-planned community can be, it has contributed substantially to the exponential growth of the Fulshear area and its position as one of the fastest-growing and most desirable places to live in Fort Bend County.

DEVELOPING NATURALLY The story of Cross Creek Ranch begins, as most stories do, with a vision — in this case inspired by the possibilities of an unremarkable, muddy creek running through worn-down pastureland slated for development. “Ten years ago, the centerpiece amenity of a master-planned community was usually a golf course,” said Rob Bamford, general manager of Cross Creek Ranch. “The idea that natural elements such as a beautiful creek and wetlands area could be developed

and attract buyers was unheard of.” But that was precisely what landscape architectural design firm SWA Group proposed. They suggested restoring Flewellen Creek to its former splendor creating “living edges” — a natural, healthy habitat where wildlife could flourish. The developers agreed, and today residents have abundant opportunities to interact with nature, whether it’s hiking and biking nearly 30 miles of wildflower-dotted trails or observing birds and wildlife from the boardwalks surrounding the 50-acre polishing pond and wildlife habitat.

RECIPE FOR A FIRST-CLASS LIFESTYLE Lush, natural open spaces, winding waterways, tall grass zones and reforestation areas are just the start of the Cross Creek Ranch appeal. The community also boasts a growing roster of resort-inspired amenities that cater to every age and stage of life. “One of our most popular amenities is Adventure Island Water Park,” Bamford said. “Kids and adults love the 140-foot water slide that starts on top of ‘The Hill,’ with its amazing lake view, and ends in the resort-style pool. Another summer favorite

is Flewellen Creek Pool, our second family amenity complex. It features a competition pool that is home to the Krakens, the community’s swim team.” A third complex, Greenthread Park, opens early next year in response to the addition of several neighborhoods in the northern section of Cross Creek Ranch. The amenity complex will feature highly interactive water features, sunbathing shelves, a pavilion, event lawn, trails and a playground. Residents can enjoy a vigorous workout at the 6,000-square-foot on-site fitness center, managed by Risher Companies. The facility features free weights, cardio and strength equipment, personal trainers, group classes and locker rooms. An especially tasty perk for not only Cross Creek Ranch residents, but neighboring areas as well, is Italian Maid

Cafe. The charming on-site bistro serves Italian-American cuisine, breakfast, lunch, dinner and carry-out, and features seasonal special entertainment. Other recreational options in Cross Creek Ranch include Canine Commons dog park, Arbor Sports and Tennis Center, and The Links at Flewellen Creek, an 18hole disc golf course. Water is a serene focal point throughout the community, with more than 400 acres of lakes providing opportunities for kayaking and fishing. A professional lifestyle director plans and hosts nearly 80 events each year exclusively for Cross Creek Ranch residents. It’s a full and varied calendar, with numerous creative family events; sports and entertainment Fort Bend / Katy Business Journal ★ December 2017

outings for adults; arts and crafts workshops; holiday extravaganzas including a July 4th celebration, Christmas tree lighting and Easter Egg hunt; summer “Movies on the Hill;” a casino night; pool parties; and more. Cross Creek Ranch also is the site of anticipated Fulshear-area events, including the annual Scarecrow Festival — awarded the 2017 “Event of the Year” by the Greater Houston Builders Association — as well as annual sporting competitions such as triathlons, bike races and more.

Residents in Cross Creek Ranch have ample opportunity to stay fit, with an array of group exercise classes and access to a well-equipped fitness center.

AND THEN THERE ARE THE SCHOOLS In addition to the amenities, one of the community’s most outstanding features is access to highly rated schools. “For home buyers with children, a deciding factor for buying a home in Cross Creek Ranch has always been the quality of our schools,” Bamford said. “We are fortunate to be served by two excellent school districts — Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated ISD. Several of the schools have been built within the last five years, and all offer an exceptional educational experience.” Young residents attend Randolph Elementary School, located within the community. A second on-site elementary school is under construction and will open in August 2018. Students zoned to Lamar Consolidated ISD attend award-winning Huggins Elementary before heading off to newly constructed, state-of-the-art Leaman Junior High and Fulshear High School. “The recent passage of the Katy ISD bond package will bring a new junior and senior high school campus to Cross Creek Ranch in the near future,” Bamford said. “That will mean students can complete their primary and secondary education right here in the community. We’re excited about that.”

Wide pathways and flowing waterways invite residents to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle in Cross Creek Ranch.

Prospective homebuyers can explore a record number of new model homes clustered in the community, with homes priced from the $220,000s to more than $1 million. Award-winning builders include Chesmar Homes, Darling Homes, Highland Homes, Lennar Homes, Newmark Homes, Perry Homes, Sitterle Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Village Builders. Luxury builders include Darling Homes, Avanti Homes and Partners in Building. Two additional neighborhoods will be added to Bonterra at Cross Creek Ranch, a gated village for residents age 55 and up. The development’s 10,000-square-foot clubhouse with resort style pool opened in November. Residents enjoy a dedicated lifestyle director, numerous social events and access to a healthy, vibrant Cross Creek Ranch quality of life.

STILL GROWING STRONG

SPURRING GROWTH IN FULSHEAR

From the beginning, home buyers and homebuilders have flocked to Cross Creek Ranch — planned for 5,000-plus families. “The success of Cross Creek Ranch is attributable not only to the lifestyle residents enjoy, but to the range and quality of the homes offered here,” Bamford said. “Whether you’re a young professional looking for a townhome, a family looking to move into a larger home, or 55-plus and ready to downsize, we have something for you.” New neighborhoods are sprouting up throughout Cross Creek Ranch offering a variety of lot sizes and life-friendly floor plans.

The 2006 annexation of Cross Creek Ranch into the City of Fulshear spurred tremendous growth and changes. On-site and nearby commercial development has accelerated, including an Aldi opening this year and an H-E-B slated for early 2018. Road projects will increase mobility with the ongoing expansion of the Westpark Tollway and the proposed Texas Heritage Parkway. The presence of the community also has contributed to Fulshear being ranked by Niche.com as one of the top suburbs to raise a family. Learn more about Cross Creek Ranch at www.crosscreektexas.com.

hen I first moved to Rosenberg at the end of 2008, it was to take a job working for the newspaper in Hempstead. I had an hour-long commute each way through a bunch of country back roads. Twice a day I would pass through the tiny town of Fulshear and then quickly disappear into wide expanses of crop land and open fields. You can’t do that anymore. For the three years that I made that drive I watched as the empty field east of Fulshear was transformed into Cross Creek Ranch – one of the most unique and fastest-growing communities in the region. Annexed by Fulshear, Cross Creek Ranch has helped transform the sleepy little hamlet into a bustling, thriving community. The master planned community by Johnson Development has helped push Fulshear’s population from 1,100 residents in 2010 to more than 6,000 now, and it continues to explode as Fulshear becomes one of the fastest growing and more desirable places to live in Fort Bend County. Utilizing the landscape architectural design firm SWA Group, Johnson Development created a natural, healthy habitat for wildlife through reforestation and the creation of “living edges” along the banks of a restored Flewellen Creek. “Ten years ago, the centerpiece amenity of a master-planned community was usually a golf course,” said Rob Bamford, general manager of Cross Creek Ranch. “The idea that natural elements such as a beautiful creek and wetlands area could be developed and attract buyers was unheard of.”

Today residents have abundant opportunities to interact with nature, whether it’s hiking and biking nearly 30 miles of wildflower-dotted trails or observing birds and other wildlife from the boardwalks surrounding the 50-acre polishing pond and wildlife habitat. It’s all part of the 3,200-acre community that is currently home to about 2,700 families with room to more than double that. The community features a growing roster of resort-inspired amenities that cater to every age and stage of life. One of our most popular is the Adventure Island Water Park and its 140foot water slide that starts on top of The Hill and ends in the swimming pool. Another summer favorite is Flewellen Creek Pool. A third complex, Greenthread Park, opens early next year. The complex will have interactive water features, sunbathing shelves, a pavilion, event lawn, trails and a playground. Residents can enjoy a vigorous workout at the 6,000-squarefoot on-site fitness center. Served by Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated ISD, Cross Creek Ranch has some of the newest and finest educational opportunities for children. To learn more about Cross Creek Ranch and its many offerings, please see the story inside this edition.

MD Anderson Cancer Center celebrates five years of Moon Shots

T

he University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center celebrates the five-year anniversary of its Moon Shots Program, a collaborative effort to accelerate the development of scientific discoveries into clinical advances that save patients’ lives. Launched in the fall of 2012, the program already has yielded notable discoveries across the spectrum of cancer care, including prevention, early detection and treatment, and has inspired philanthropic support totaling more than $451 million. “With its unique infrastructure and team-science approach, the Moon Shots Program is well-positioned to continue translating discoveries into the patient care setting for many years to come,” said Marshall E. Hicks, M.D., president ad interim. “We have only begun to realize the successes of the program.” First inspired by MD Anderson’s fourth full-time president Ronald A. DePinho, M.D., the program established focused, multidisciplinary teams of clinicians and researchers tasked with developing comprehensive approaches to improving the lives of patients and reducing cancer mortality. Each component of the program undergoes regular internal and external peerreview to prioritize and direct ongoing efforts, focusing on those most likely to have significant, rapid impact for patients. Beginning with six Moon Shots, the program was expanded in 2015 for a total of 13 disease-focused initiatives. The Moon Shots Program also established

10 platforms, which provide unique expertise, technical support and novel infrastructure to support the program’s team science approach and accelerate the translation of data and discoveries for patients’ benefit. Philanthropic funding goes directly to support these areas of priority research and program infrastructure. MD Anderson’s Moon Shots Program also served as an inspiration for the national Cancer Moonshot, which works toward the same goal, combining innovation and collaboration to make therapies available to more patients on a national scale. Two MD Anderson faculty serve on the Blue Ribbon Advisory panel to the national Cancer Moonshot, providing guidance and recommendations to the national effort.

Novel therapeutic approaches highlight program achievements

“Our singular vision of improving patient care has catalyzed our teams toward novel discoveries that, quite simply, would not have occurred without such focus,” said Giulio Draetta, M.D., Ph.D., co-leader of the Moon Shots Program, senior vice president, Discovery and Platforms and chief academic officer ad interim. “In five years, we have made notable advances for patients – most of which would not have been possible without the Moon Shots Program.” Some of those accomplishments include: The Institute for Applied Cancer Science (IACS), a Moon Shots platform, has advanced a novel drug

from discovery to clinical trials for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in collaboration with the Myelodysplastic Syndromes and Acute Myeloid Leukemia Moon Shot™. The drug, which disrupts energy production in cancer cells, will soon advance to clinical trials in patients with solid tumors. The entire development pipeline, from laboratory discovery through clinical trials, has been managed exclusively by the Moon Shots Program, which made possible the accelerated translation to the patient care setting in fewer than five years. The Lung Cancer Moon Shot has identified and resurrected an abandoned targeted therapy, poziotinib, for treating a rare group of lung cancer patients with specific treatment-resistant mutations. These patients, who previously had no effective treatment options, are seeing significant response rates in current phase II clinical trials. The pre-clinical discovery, testing, and current clinical trials were catalyzed by multidisciplinary efforts and platform support with the goal of meeting this unmet need in lung cancer patients. The Melanoma Moon Shot has opened clinical trials to evaluate neoadjuvant, or pre-surgical, treatment for high-risk patients with melanoma who would otherwise undergo surgery. Neoadjuvant therapy is a standard practice in other cancers, such as breast, but this approach was not previously feasible in melanoma CONTINUED PAGE 7

Homebuyers can find joy in Aliana

ew sections in fast-selling Aliana are now open for presales as the community moves into an expected busy holiday season. With the latest demand for homes in Aliana, a 2,000acre development that is ranked the No. 2 top-selling community in the Houston area by housing research firm Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO), the pace has been stepped up to release more than 200 new homesites for the 2017 holiday season. The new homesites will accommodate a variety of homes and appeal to families of all sizes. Pricing will start in the $270,000s. Aliana, a Richmond community now has 18 models open daily for touring and a wide selection of underconstruction and move-in ready homes available. “Our award-winning builders are ready to answer the needs of homebuyers, whatever they may be,” said Linda Kilgore, Marketing Director with Aliana Development Company. “We have one- and two-story homes available with up to six bedrooms and a four-car garage. The homes include today’s must-have design features such as expansive common areas, substantial kitchen islands, courtyards, covered outdoor living spaces and current color palettes.” A dozen national and regional builders offer home designs priced from the $270,000s in Aliana: Ashton Woods, CalAtlantic Homes, Coventry Homes, Highland Homes, J. Patrick Homes, Meritage Homes, Partners in Building, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Sitterle Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Village Builders. Residents of Aliana enjoy a generous amenity package, including a second community recreation center that opened this year, The Westmoor Club at Aliana. The facility offers a second on-site 24-hour fitness center, rental

spaces, a game room with ping pong, arcade basketball and foosball — along with additional tennis courts, an event lawn, community pool and splash pad — and a dynamic play area with a cargo net and other climbing features. The new recreation center complements the Club at Aliana, which offers an expansive swim center that includes a lap pool, resort pool, a twisting water slide, splash pad and lounging areas. Parks and trails can be found throughout the community. Aliana residents also will enjoy proximity to the nation’s first fully reimagined Target slated to be open for

this holiday season. The 124,000-square foot store will feature upgraded décor, an enhanced grocery department, a wine and beer shop and easy on-site delivery of online orders. The H-E-B Aliana Market also is open within the community. “The mix of well-crafted homes and world-class amenities create an inviting combination that is hard to resist,” Kilgore said. “Add in our location along the Grand Parkway just north of Highway 59, and it’s obvious why so many people have made their home in Aliana.” Learn more at www.AlianaHouston.com.

Now celebrating 20 years, Sienna Plantation was named Master-Planned Community of the Year during the recent Houston’s Best PRISM Awards hosted by the Greater Houston Builders Association.

Sienna Plantation wins Community of the Year

S

ienna Plantation edged out its younger competitors at the Oct. 7 Greater Houston Business Association’s (GHBA) Houston’s Best PRISM Awards to take home the coveted Master-Planned Community of the Year award. Established 20 years ago by Johnson Development Corp., the top-selling Fort Bend community has never rested on its laurels, consistently attracting homebuyers with an everincreasing list of amenities, on-site schools and innovative additions. “Sienna Plantation is, in many ways, the blueprint for all of the master-planned communities that followed it,” said Alvin San Miguel, General Manager of Sienna Plantation. “Being recognized with this prestigious award indicates that we are doing something right. Twenty years down the road, Sienna is still Houston’s premier lifestyle community.” That lifestyle includes three water parks, six on-site schools, more than 35 miles of trails, resident-only events and more than 100 acres of parks and playgrounds.

6

Committed to sustainability, Sienna’s developers have spent money and care in the preservation of century-old oaks and forested areas throughout the development. Trails feature crushed granite pathways, glimpses of wildlife and a stop at a scenic overlook as well as lakes for fishing and an amphitheater ensconced on a large hill. The result has been strong buyer demand, prompting the recent opening of three new neighborhoods in the community’s Village of Sawmill Lake — which welcomed the opening Sienna’s fourth recreation complex, Sawmill Lake Club, this month. Leonetti Elementary, the development’s fourth on-site elementary opened in August. It will be joined by Thornton Middle School next year. “We are constantly looking for new ways to better serve our residents,” San Miguel said. “It’s why we are considered one of the top-selling communities in the nation and contributed to our winning this award.” December 2017 ★ Fort Bend / Katy Business Journal

due to a lack of active therapies. These trials will advance insights on the best approaches to treating patients after surgery. Additionally, using Moon Shot platforms, deep analyses of patient samples from these trials are being carried out to better understand why treatments do or do not work for all melanoma patients and guide new trial development.

Primed for increasing impact

“We have made great strides in five years, but perhaps the most important achievement is the foundation upon which current and future program discoveries will be made and lives saved,” said Andy Futreal, Ph.D., chair of Genomic Medicine and co-leader of the Moon Shots Program. “With this infrastructure, our tremendous teams of scientists, together with collaborators here and abroad, are learning more each day from the very individuals we remain committed to helping – our patients.” The research platforms, which work across the Moon Shots, continue to advance therapies to the clinic and evaluate patient data to refine clinical strategies, ensuring patients receive the best care specific to their cancer. The APOLLO platform is performing large-scale analysis of patient samples over time, generating novel data to better understand how tumors evolve resistance to certain treatments, making cancers more predictable and easier to treat. This platform is harnessing the power of big data and sharing across disciplines to inform better care of patients with all cancer types.

IACS is advancing multiple novel drugs toward the clinic, with the next expected to enter clinical trials in 2018. Additionally, the Immunotherapy platform will continue advancing immune-based therapies to make this game-changing treatment available to more patients. Currently, there are more than 150 clinical studies at MD Anderson that are being accelerated as a result of the Moon Shots Program, investigating both novel drug compounds as well as new approaches to improve the effectiveness of existing drugs. The Moon Shots Program also is committed to advancing evidence-based cancer prevention and control practices, which have the potential to prevent up to 50 percent of cancers in future generations. The Cancer Prevention and Control platform has established a range of targeted initiatives designed to advance early detection approaches, spread the use of actions known to reduce cancer risk, and improve access to screening and prevention services. Moon Shots experts also have served as educational resources for legislators across the country on policies related to cancer prevention and control. “The Moon Shots Program is an extraordinary platform for team-based science that has inspired donor support for transformative research that otherwise may not have been funded,” said Peter WT Pisters, M.D., incoming president of MD Anderson. “We have an obligation to lead in cancer prevention and control while working to accelerate improvements in patient outcomes – all of which is possible through the Moon Shots Program and MD Anderson’s commitment to Making Cancer History.”

COVER STORY

elebrating a decade of be

I

n 2008, Cross Creek Ranch opened in Fulshear with the promise of something different — a thriving, 3,200-acre community where beautiful, natural elements and superior amenities combined to create an idyllic, active lifestyle. A decade later, Johnson Development has delivered one of the most sought-after master-planned communities in the nation. Currently home to more than 2,700 families, Cross Creek Ranch has not only redefined what a master-planned community can be, it has contributed substantially to the exponential growth of the Fulshear area and its position as one of the fastest-growing and most desirable places to live in Fort Bend County.

DEVELOPING NATURALLY The story of Cross Creek Ranch begins, as most stories do, with a vision — in this case inspired by the possibilities of an unremarkable, muddy creek running through worn-down pastureland slated for development. “Ten years ago, the centerpiece amenity of a master-planned community was usually a golf course,” said Rob Bamford, general manager of Cross Creek Ranch. “The idea that natural elements such as a beautiful creek and wetlands area could be developed

Beautifully restored Flewellen Creek is a signature feature of Cross Creek Ranch. A wildlife habitat, it is also popular with residents.

and attract buyers was unheard of.” But that was precisely what landscape architectural design firm SWA Group proposed. They suggested restoring Flewellen Creek to its former splendor creating “living edges” — a natural, healthy habitat where wildlife could flourish. The developers agreed, and today residents have abundant opportunities to interact with nature, whether it’s hiking and biking nearly 30 miles of wildflower-dotted trails or observing birds and wildlife from the boardwalks surrounding the 50-acre polishing pond and wildlife habitat.

December 2017 ★ Fort Bend / Katy Business Journal

RECIPE FOR A FIRST-CLASS LIFESTYLE Lush, natural open spaces, winding waterways, tall grass zones and reforestation areas are just the start of the Cross Creek Ranch appeal. The community also boasts a growing roster of resort-inspired amenities that cater to every age and stage of life. “One of our most popular amenities is Adventure Island Water Park,” Bamford said. “Kids and adults love the 140-foot water slide that starts on top of ‘The Hill,’ with its amazing lake view, and ends in the resort-style pool. Another summer favorite


beautiful development

is Flewellen Creek Pool, our second family amenity complex. It features a competition pool that is home to the Krakens, the community’s swim team.” A third complex, Greenthread Park, opens early next year in response to the addition of several neighborhoods in the northern section of Cross Creek Ranch. The amenity complex will feature highly interactive water features, sunbathing shelves, a pavilion, event lawn, trails and a playground. Residents can enjoy a vigorous workout at the 6,000-square-foot on-site fitness center, managed by Risher Companies. The facility features free weights, cardio and strength equipment, personal trainers, group classes and locker rooms. An especially tasty perk for not only Cross Creek Ranch residents, but neighboring areas as well, is Italian Maid

Cafe. The charming on-site bistro serves Italian-American cuisine, breakfast, lunch, dinner and carry-out, and features seasonal special entertainment. Other recreational options in Cross Creek Ranch include Canine Commons dog park, Arbor Sports and Tennis Center, and The Links at Flewellen Creek, an 18hole disc golf course. Water is a serene focal point throughout the community, with more than 400 acres of lakes providing opportunities for kayaking and fishing. A professional lifestyle director plans and hosts nearly 80 events each year exclusively for Cross Creek Ranch residents. It’s a full and varied calendar, with numerous creative family events; sports and entertainment Fort Bend / Katy Business Journal ★ December 2017

outings for adults; arts and crafts workshops; holiday extravaganzas including a July 4th celebration, Christmas tree lighting and Easter Egg hunt; summer “Movies on the Hill;” a casino night; pool parties; and more. Cross Creek Ranch also is the site of anticipated Fulshear-area events, including the annual Scarecrow Festival — awarded the 2017 “Event of the Year” by the Greater Houston Builders Association — as well as annual sporting competitions such as triathlons, bike races and more.

Residents in Cross Creek Ranch have ample opportunity to stay fit, with an array of group exercise classes and access to a well-equipped fitness center.

AND THEN THERE ARE THE SCHOOLS In addition to the amenities, one of the community’s most outstanding features is access to highly rated schools. “For home buyers with children, a deciding factor for buying a home in Cross Creek Ranch has always been the quality of our schools,” Bamford said. “We are fortunate to be served by two excellent school districts — Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated ISD. Several of the schools have been built within the last five years, and all offer an exceptional educational experience.” Young residents attend Randolph Elementary School, located within the community. A second on-site elementary school is under construction and will open in August 2018. Students zoned to Lamar Consolidated ISD attend award-winning Huggins Elementary before heading off to newly constructed, state-of-the-art Leaman Junior High and Fulshear High School. “The recent passage of the Katy ISD bond package will bring a new junior and senior high school campus to Cross Creek Ranch in the near future,” Bamford said. “That will mean students can complete their primary and secondary education right here in the community. We’re excited about that.”

Wide pathways and flowing waterways invite residents to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle in Cross Creek Ranch.

Prospective homebuyers can explore a record number of new model homes clustered in the community, with homes priced from the $220,000s to more than $1 million. Award-winning builders include Chesmar Homes, Darling Homes, Highland Homes, Lennar Homes, Newmark Homes, Perry Homes, Sitterle Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Village Builders. Luxury builders include Darling Homes, Avanti Homes and Partners in Building. Two additional neighborhoods will be added to Bonterra at Cross Creek Ranch, a gated village for residents age 55 and up. The development’s 10,000-square-foot clubhouse with resort style pool opened in November. Residents enjoy a dedicated lifestyle director, numerous social events and access to a healthy, vibrant Cross Creek Ranch quality of life.

STILL GROWING STRONG

SPURRING GROWTH IN FULSHEAR

From the beginning, home buyers and homebuilders have flocked to Cross Creek Ranch — planned for 5,000-plus families. “The success of Cross Creek Ranch is attributable not only to the lifestyle residents enjoy, but to the range and quality of the homes offered here,” Bamford said. “Whether you’re a young professional looking for a townhome, a family looking to move into a larger home, or 55-plus and ready to downsize, we have something for you.” New neighborhoods are sprouting up throughout Cross Creek Ranch offering a variety of lot sizes and life-friendly floor plans.

The 2006 annexation of Cross Creek Ranch into the City of Fulshear spurred tremendous growth and changes. On-site and nearby commercial development has accelerated, including an Aldi opening this year and an H-E-B slated for early 2018. Road projects will increase mobility with the ongoing expansion of the Westpark Tollway and the proposed Texas Heritage Parkway. The presence of the community also has contributed to Fulshear being ranked by Niche.com as one of the top suburbs to raise a family. Learn more about Cross Creek Ranch at www.crosscreektexas.com.
