Houston Market

The vibrancy of Telfair is testament to its focus on connectivity, education, culture, and its Sugar Land, Texas, location in southwest Houston, one of the most ethnically diverse areas in the US. Inspired by the city squares and classic architecture of the low country, the community is rich in architecture and detail. Signaled by several historically inspired suspension bridges, Telfair’s landscape and community architecture palette embraces fine details like wrought iron, brick detailing, and colorful azaleas.
Telfair’s active lifestyle comes to life through several hundred acres of open space, walking, and biking trails surrounding a 70-acre lake, a 9,000 SF community center, two swimming pool complexes, and many distinct neighborhood parks. With an eye towards adaptive reuse, Newland donated the historic Central State Farm Prison building for the new home of the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land.
Offering the last commercial sites in Sugar Land with freeway frontage, Telfair attracted prestigious, high‐profile users, including the Smart Financial Centre performing arts venue and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
