Towne Lake is a master-planned community surrounding a 300-acre man-made lake, the 4th largest recreational lake in the Greater Houston area. Connected trails, waterways and scenic coves allow residents easy access to the lake and the many amenities and destinations throughout, bonding the community together and creating a unique living experience. Comprised of primarily single family residences, Towne Lake also inlcudes mutli-family residences, commercial properties, parks, open space, marinas, an ampitheater and a recreational center.
Rialto Studio developed the community “look and feel” based on the Texas Hill Country vernacular. The land has been shaped to create hills and valleys uncommon to Houston but which serves to distinguish Towne Lake from its competitors. Native Texas plantings also serve to differentiate the community from those with high maintenance formal landscapes.
