Pomona by Hillwood - Reflecting on a Year of Achievements

Posted on 12/18/2023 by Steven Crocker

We’re thrilled to announce that Pomona has taken home the Master Planned Community of the Year award for second consecutive year! The Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) Prism Awards 2023 have bestowed upon Pomona not one, but two prestigious honors—Master Planned Community of the Year and Best Master Planned Community Amenity for The Backyard.

Back-to-Back GHBA Triumphs: A Testament to Excellence

For the second year in a row, Pomona has taken home the title of Master Planned Community of the Year at the GHBA Prism Awards - this recognition underscores our commitment to creating a truly unique and inviting community for its residents. The dedication to thoughtful planning, innovative design, and a commitment to quality living has truly set Pomona apart.

The Backyard: An Enchanting Amenity for the Whole Family

This year, Pomona was also recognized for The Backyard, a family-friendly amenity that serves as a whimsical escape from everyday life. The Backyard invites residents to rediscover their inner child with enchanting features like tree climbing, hidden tree houses, and even a thrilling zip line crossing imaginary shark-infested waters. It's a nostalgic nod to the requests many of us made to our parents, and we couldn’t be happier to bring those childhood dreams to life inside of our community.

While the little ones play, parents can mingle with their neighbors and share fire-side chats among century-old trees in The Mantel, the perfect place to relax and unwind on those long summer nights. The Backyard isn’t just a place to play - it's a communal heartbeat, fostering connections and creating lasting memories.

Quality Planned Development Recognition: Setting the Bar

In 2023, Pomona achieved a remarkable milestone by being recognized as the newest Quality Planned Development in the Greater Houston region, granted to communities that display “design and amenity qualities commonly found in superior master-planned communities, commercial centers and mixed-use developments” that “blend seamlessly into the fabric of a development, creating a place where people want to live, want to work and want to play.”

This prestigious acknowledgment underscores our commitment to maintaining the highest standards in community planning and development.
