The Telfair development is located to the north and south of U.S. 59
near University Boulevard. The 2,020 acres of vacant land were annexed
into the City in July of 2004 in accordance with an executed development
agreement between Newland Communities and the City of Sugar Land. Under
the Telfair General Plan, approximately 950 acres are a mix of
residential living units including traditional single-family homes,
waterfront lots, and multi-family living units.
This development also includes a neighborhood civic center, elementary
school, extensive trail and lake/detention system, retail and commercial
space, office development, the Houston Museum of Natural Science at
Sugar Land, and the City’s Fire Station No. 7.
In 2012, City Council approved the purchase of approximately 63 acres of land within the development for a future community park.
