Land Development
Dallas/Fort Worth and Greater Austin

James R. Harris Partners in Dallas/Fort Worth and its affiliated firm in Austin, Harris & Straub, focus on land development. Combining four decades of local experience with an exceptional team of professionals, committed financial partners and relationships with local governments, our staffs have proven experience and expertise to take on the challenging development process. Rooted with a sense of integrity and focused on the details, we create developments whose quality not only meets the demands of the market but also stands the test of time.


A Proven Process

JRHP and H&S follow a proven process with each land development. Prior to developing a property, we assess a site’s characteristics individually with the goal to optimize its natural aesthetics and integrate them into the built environment. Relying on input from stakeholders and the help of our team of professionals including engineers, biologists, landscape architects and land planners, we create a design that complements the landscape. We seek to provide a unique sense of place not only for the residents but also in harmony with the surrounding community.

Each residential development is more than a series of streets: we build communities—each offering space for people to come together with friends, family and neighbors. Whether it be an evening stroll through our trails and connected walkways, gathering at our parks or enjoying a sunny day poolside, our neighborhoods are designed to bring people together. 

With well thought-out neighborhoods in great school districts, we partner with award-winning homebuilders and deliver great amenities. As a result, our thriving communities remain popular, lively and attractive long after construction ends.

Each is a place residents are proud to call home.
