Progress continues at Parmer Ranch in Georgetown as builders work to fill out the 454-acre master-planned community, which will eventually include 1,000 single-family homes.

In addition to the 100 residents already living in Parmer Ranch, 60 more homes have been sold in the community, as developers are continuing construction with build-out in the next three to five years.

Four builders are working in the area, including Gehan Homes, GFO Homes, Sitterle Homes and Empire Communities, while a fifth, Westin Homes, is set to take on a portion of the 131 lots to be delivered to the development in March. This would be an addition to the 375 lots already on site.

Of those lots, 150 homes have been completed or are nearing completion. Another 50 have been under construction since August, and builders broke ground on 84 on Feb. 13.

“There are other communities where builders have lots, but aren’t starting homes, because the market has moved against them,” said developer Joe Owen, of Owen Holdings Inc. “I think it’s a real good sign for our community that the builders continue to start homes, because they believe they’ll sell them once they start them.”

Situated on 10 acres in the middle of the development, Parmer Park includes a zip line, a dino dig and a community pond with trails connecting it to the surrounding homes.

Work on the Parmer Ranch amenity center—which will feature a pool, covered patios, pickleball and basketball courts, and a playground—is set to begin by May.
