History

In the 1970s developer Larry Johnson found 10,500 acres (4,200 ha) of partially wooded land in eastern Fort Bend County and envisioned a master planned community there. At the time few businesses existed on Texas State Highway 6 between Alvin and Sugar Land. Zen T. C. Zheng of the Houston Chronicle said that the region was "not an inviting environment for a community." Johnson founded the Johnson Development Corp in 1975, bought the land, and began development of the project. The project stalled during the economic meltdown of the 1980s. The developer refocused his efforts in 1994.[3] The development of Sienna Plantation was organized by Tan Yu, a billionaire developer from the Philippines who, in 1997, was based in Taiwan.[4] In 2009 5,000 of the 5,200 houses in Sienna Plantation were occupied.[3]
