For hard-working medical professionals seeking convenience, community, and a balanced lifestyle near their place of employment, finding the perfect home can be a challenge. Fortunately, Pomona by Hillwood offers an exceptional living experience that is perfectly suited to the unique needs of Texas Medical Center workers and others working in downtown Houston.

Ideally located in the fast-growing city of Manvel, Pomona is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but close enough to provide easy access to everything Houston has to offer.

Location and Accessibility

Situated in the Highway 288 corridor, just 15 miles away from the Texas Medical Center, Pomona offers convenient access to one of the largest and top-ranked healthcare facilities in the state. Medical professionals can bid farewell to long and tiring commutes, gaining valuable time to relax and unwind. Additionally, Pomona is only minutes away from the Pearland Town Center and the upcoming Manvel Town Center, giving residents plenty of choices when it comes to dining, shopping, and entertainment.

That same thoughtfulness extends to our slate of award-winning builders, each hand-selected to ensure that you receive the very best in quality and customer service. With a curated variety of timeless designs to choose from, you can be sure that your home perfectly suits your needs and your own unique style.
