Central components of open green areas in any neighborhood are sustainability, environmental stewardship, and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. As a developer of affordable luxury residential communities in Texas, the Founder of Western Rim Property Services, Marcus Hiles is honored to be able to donate land for community parks and provide the much-needed property for natural recreation spaces. Trees, plants and wildlife are essential for life and allow families, couples and individuals a place for relaxation. These spots can only thrive through the generous work and dedication of people and businesses, such as Hiles, devoted to environmentally friendly efforts.

 

Understanding the importance of public space for leisure and enjoyment of nature, Marcus Hiles has contributed to the transformation of multiple Texas cities with his generous gift.  Inspired to create amazing places to live, these community parks are an essential part of his vision. His mandate for eco-friendly business extends to his company, which annually plants trees by the thousands.

The benefits of urban wildernesses enhance the local eco-system in many positive ways. According to American Forests, an organization that studies municipal forests and the repercussions of declining natural areas in cities, two trees can make enough oxygen for one person and can absorb twenty pounds of air pollution every year. Parks also provide shade, cooling down a significant area and reducing heat retention. Air-conditioning requirements are lower in a community with ample canopy coverage. A car that is placed in the shade stays fifty degrees cooler than one parked in the sun.

Marcus Hiles is a Texas-based real estate entrepreneur and investor. As Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, he is a visionary developer, committed to designing and expanding high-quality communities with executive residential rentals available throughout the region. One of Hiles' personal goals is to increase the tree canopy in Texas substantially. His passion to help others extends to philanthropic activities and his association with different state boards.
