In our latest development update, we’re excited to share the recent progress on The Sylvan, a distinctive Build-To-Rent development nestled in The Woodlands, Texas. The Sylvan aims to redefine community living by blending single-family homes, townhomes, and low-rise apartments to create a neighborhood atmosphere enriched with shared amenities.
Committed to sustainability, our team has incorporated the land’s natural beauty which includes rolling hills, old-growth trees, and lush vegetation into the design, offering a living experience unlike anything currently in the market.
Tree Preservation as a Cornerstone:
We recognize the importance of preserving the natural beauty of the land we are developing in The Woodlands, TX. Because of this, we view tree preservation not just as a goal, but as a differentiator in an era where many developments lack a focus on community design and natural elements. To achieve this, we’ve partnered with local experts like SavATree and Helmwood.
SavATree, a leader in landscape stewardship, has been collaborating with us to assess the feasibility of tree preservation. Their expertise ensures a thoughtful integration of nature into the project, fostering an environment where residents can connect with the outdoors.
Teaming up with Helmwood, a Houston-based custom woodworking artisan firm, reflects our commitment to resourceful practices. Helmwood’s passion for wood’s beauty aligns with our vision. Their mission to give trees a second life harmonizes perfectly with our goal of preserving oak trees.
Repurposing with Purpose:
Our investment in saving on-site oak trees showcases our dedication to sustainability. Those unable to be preserved will find a new purpose within The Sylvan. Carefully harvested, their heavy and dense wood undergoes meticulous processing to become furniture, bar tops, and artistic pieces in community spaces, including the office, clubhouse, and amenities.
A Fusion of Function and Aesthetics:
In the end, The Sylvan promises not just functional spaces but visually appealing enhancements. Marquette’s collaboration with SavATree and Helmwood stands as a testament to the coexistence of progress and conservation, setting a positive example for sustainable development in harmony with nature.
We don’t want The Sylvan to be just another development; it’s a blueprint for a thriving community where progress and preservation walk hand in hand. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to shape a sustainable haven in The Woodlands.
