Meet Johnson Development

Kresston developer Johnson Development is no stranger to residential development — it’s something the company has been doing since 1975.

In fact, Johnson Development has shaped residential development throughout the area, concentrating on building communities that embrace a meaningful lifestyle for its residents. Bountiful amenities, an active resident event calendar, onsite schools, nearby conveniences — all are trademarks of a Johnson community.

Communities by Johnson Development can be found in Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin, but most are situated in the Houston area. In fact, several of these communities — Sienna, Riverstone, Cross Creek Ranch, Woodforest — are nationally known, earning a spot time and again on the list of the nation’s top-selling master-planned communities. Pointing to the popularity of Johnson’s communities, the company holds the honor of having more top-selling communities than any other developer in the nation over the past 10 years.

The success of Johnson communities has been a benefit to the surrounding areas, with Johnson’s commercial and residential development creating more than $25 billion in taxable revenue. But that’s only the starting point when it comes to service to the greater community; Johnson has donated millions of dollars over the years to schools, local charities and national institutions. Johnson employees volunteer numerous hours, often serving in leadership positions. The company’s enduring spirit of service earned it the “Humanitarian of the Year” award by the Greater Houston Builders Association.

Johnson Development’s caring reputation can also be seen within its own halls. The company has been listed as one of the “Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in the Nation” several times and in 2022 was named a “Best Place for Working Parents.” Later that year, the Houston Chronicle ranked Johnson Development among the top places to work for in Houston.

Building community — within its company, within its developments and within the greater area — that is the heart of Johnson Development.
