HOUSTON – August 26, 2016 - Pulte Homes is opening a community in the heart of Houston, giving millennials an alternative to high density city living with new single family homes. Hollister Oaks by Pulte Homes meets the growing demand for urban infill new homes with unique suburban features like covered patios, balconies and livable backyards.
“It is rare to find new homes for young families and millennials located just minutes from downtown, yet offer community features not typical in high density city living,” says Tanya Rizzo, vice president of sales for PulteGroup’s Houston Division. She said Hollister Oaks represents the first of several communities Pulte Homes plans to open near downtown Houston, specially designed for millennials.

Pre-sales are underway for Hollister Oaks, which is located in the Spring Branch area just outside the 610 inner loop, between I-10 and 290. The infill site includes 55 two-story single family homes. Pulte is currently hosting “hard hat tours” by appointment prior to opening fully-furnished model homes for viewing later this year.
Rizzo said the location provides easy access to major transportation corridors within the city, and is close to suburban town centers just inside the beltway such as Memorial and City Centre. The three and four bedroom homes range in size from 1,640 to 2,133 square feet, and start in the low $300s. For more information, go to www.pulte.com
