Marcus Hiles’ green efforts go beyond the communities he develops. Marcus Hiles sees environmental conservation as a win for both community individuals and the planet. His company’s continued tree-planting events have increased the volume of trees even more than the pre-development levels. “Each of the 3,000 trees we planted in the previous year takes care of more than 45 pounds of carbon dioxide and contaminations while also releasing oxygen,” he says. In the meantime, Hiles tries to ensure existing natural treasures, for example, the many 100-year-old oak trees that thrive in a park beside one Western Rim site. “Our objective is to cut carbon emissions by more than 500,000 metric tons throughout the following ten years,” he remarks. “Also, we’ll be able to provide energy savings for our occupants and make practical, thriving communities.”
Planned cities, such as the colonial-era developments of Jamestown, Philadelphia, and Charleston, have shaped the United States since the 16th century. In today’s America, CEO of Western Rim Property Services Marcus Hiles believes that designed communities are not only beneficial to residents, but play an integral role in the country’s real estate market. The Dallas real estate investor has been constructing stunning luxurious developments for over thirty years, witnessing firsthand the transformative impact they’ve had on Texas’ citizens and economy.
Environmental commitments extend well beyond just residences for Marcus Hiles. Outside, Western Rim follows a bold tree-planting initiative, increasing the volume of a community’s tree canopy above pre-development levels. “Each of the 3,000 trees we planted last year sequesters over 45 pounds of carbon dioxide and pollutants while releasing oxygen,” he notes. Hiles is also working to protect thriving arboreal treasures, including hundreds of 100-year-old oak trees living in a designed park adjacent to a Western Rim site. According to Marcus Hiles, environmental responsibility is a win for both community members and the planet. “Our bold goal is to lessen carbon emissions by more than 500,000 metric tons over the next decade,” he says. “In the process, we’ll deliver energy savings to our residents and create sustainable, livable communities.”
