In 1988, Ross Perot, Jr. founded Hillwood based on the core values of character, courage and integrity. Rooted in a strong entrepreneurial vision, Hillwood is committed to bringing long-term value to our customers and partners through real estate development, investments and public-private partnerships.


Based in Dallas, Texas, Hillwood is ranked today as one of the top industrial, commercial and residential real estate developers in the country. Our large, signature projects have become premier environments for residents and customers to live and work. We actively develop and buy industrial land and buildings across the U.S. This makes Hillwood somewhat unique as an investor and developer. In addition to being a leader in commercial and residential developments as well as specialized projects such as sporting arenas, industrial airports and museums, our work has been consistently recognized as best in class.


Our founding project, AllianceTexas, has been hailed as one of the best mixed-use developments in the world. The 27,000-acre master-planned community envelops the world’s first industrial airport and has generated approximately $92 billion in economic impact, creating 63,000 jobs and 53 million square feet of new development in the process.


We strive to make an impact on the communities we serve by incorporating insightful master-planning development, innovation and creativity, and focusing on long-term sustainability. Our handiwork can be seen in more than 32,000 residential lots, in more than 90 locations across the United States and Costa Rica.


Whether generating new jobs, improving infrastructure or volunteering in our communities, Hillwood remains dedicated to building a brighter future.
