From blank slate to economic hub
Since its founding in 1994, the Signorelli Company has focused on creating communities in special places throughout the greater Houston area, like Montgomery County. CEO Danny Signorelli, a life-long resident of Montgomery County, noticed the opportunity and need for quality development north of Kingwood. In 1999, the vision to create a vibrant mixed-use community was born when the Signorelli Company acquired the first of eight parcels, creating what we now know as Valley Ranch. The real estate firm’s long-term investment philosophy and patience for quality has enabled the 1,400-acre master-planned community to become 'the hub' of growth for the northeast Houston corridor. Today, the Valley Ranch success story offers true live, work, play dynamics within a community Full of Life. Valley Ranch has become a highly desirable location for residents and businesses alike.
When PRISM started working with the Signorelli Company in 2014, the first round of renderings helped them to kick off their marketing campaign to start the commercial projects once the single-family component of the master-planned community was well underway. Our most recent work together has been updating renderings for the Entertainment District, Commerce District, Medical District, and Valley Ranch Marketplace. PRISM also worked on renderings for the last Valley Ranch Town Center Anchor opportunity. Located at the high growth and highly visible intersection of the Grand Parkway and Interstate 69 North, Valley Ranch is comprised of six walkable districts, interconnected by over 240-acres of greenspace, lakes and linear parks. Valley Ranch Town Center offers 1M square-feet of super-regional and grocery-anchored retail and multi-family opportunities. The Residential District includes nearly 2,000 single-family homes, over 700 multi-family units and neighborhood retail surrounded by key civic components. The new 60-acre Entertainment District will be built around a large outdoor pedestrian plaza and feature a 16,000-seat amphitheater, retail, office, hospitality, multi-family and dining options. The Commerce District is planned to be anchored by Class-A office space and include a convention center, full service hotel with walkable ground floor retail opportunities. The Medical District fills a critical shortage of healthcare services for Montgomery County and is designed to have an acute care hospital facility, medical office buildings, along with various dining and retail pads. The Marketplace will round out Valley Ranch with 1.5M square feet of mixed-use space. When construction started at Valley Ranch, the Montgomery County population was 455,746. Today it is just over 630k and estimated to be 1.2 million by 2030. Thanks to Danny’s great foresight and belief, the Signorelli Company is creating the type of community that attracts families and people of all ages, and makes a positive impact on quality living, today, tomorrow and for the foreseeable future. “Valley Ranch Town Center is significant for this Interstate 69 corridor, particularly for Montgomery County and the residents who live here from Kingwood extending north, and with the expansion of the Grand Parkway, the reach goes even further east and west. The reality of putting over 1.5 million square feet of retail and mixed-use services here is that it will impact everybody from the county to the local New Caney Independent School District, because it will push hundreds of millions of dollars into the tax base. We’re talking new schools, job creation and the trickle-down economic impact that this all creates. But most importantly, this is important to the residents in the area. They’re looking for a quality of life where they can eat at a Chili’s before a high school football game at the New Caney Football Stadium. After the game, they can go grab ice cream at an ice cream parlor. Corporate offices can have that same convenience, with the ability to walk to and from work, and travel on the least congested freeways to get anywhere in Houston quickly. This enables families to have a whole different experience in this expanding corridor.” -Danny Signorelli, President & CEO
