(HOUSTON—February 5, 2020) Aliana®, a 2,000-acre master-planned community located in Richmond, TX announced today it has been ranked in the Top 35 in sales nationally for the seventh year in a row. Results are from a survey conducted by real estate consulting firms RCLCo and John Burns which identifies top-selling master-planned communities (MPCs). Aliana® sold 413 new homes in 2019.
“We are honored to have been ranked in the Top 35 in this highly-regarded survey for the seventh year in a row,” said Travis Stone, President of AIRIA Development® Company, the developer for Aliana®. “Aliana® has consistently earned national recognition for its performance and growth because homebuyers are attracted to its prime location, diverse selection of new-home styles and amenities, and our premier Houston builders.”
The ranking of RCLCo’s and John Burns’ top-selling communities is based on total net new home sales as reported by each individual community. To be included, MPCs must be developed with a strong vision and comprehensive plan that guide development and unify the community. This is accomplished through distinctive signage, wayfinding, entry features, landscaping, and architectural/design standards that foster an environment of community.
Aliana® is one of the largest master-planned communities in Fort Bend County. The award-winning community features new homes priced from the $280s to more than $1 million, with homes for first-time buyers, low-maintenance luxury homes and semi-custom homes. Aliana® is home to more than 3,500 households with approximately 4,200 planned at build-out.
Builders in Aliana® include Ashton Woods, Coventry Homes, Highland Homes, J. Patrick Homes, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Partners in Building, Perry Homes, Plantation Homes, Sitterle Homes and Village Builders.

Just minutes from home, Aliana® residents enjoy on-site retail including the Market Center at Aliana® which features the H-E-B Aliana® Market and the nation’s first Next Generation Target store. The new Grand at Aliana®, which is currently under development, will bring even more sought-after retail and services to the area.
