George Washington Carver once said that “education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.” Texas-based real estate developer and Chairman of Western Rim, Marcus Hiles furthers these sentiments, believing that education forms the basis for one’s success in all aspects of life. Hiles strongly encourages suburban living for anyone in pursuit of the top educational opportunities available. Each year, suburban school districts continue to outpace the performance of urban counterparts, especially in regards to test scores and graduation rates. A study performed by America’s Promise and cited by the New York Times pointed to “the average high school graduation rate in the nation’s 50 largest cities was 53 percent, compared with 71 percent in the suburbs.”
Marcus Hiles is extremely concerned about his company’s carbon footprint, and this impacts the decision making with every project they take on. He believes their tree planting initiatives can make a significant impact on that footprint. “Trees and vegetation play a key role in every Western Rim development,” Hiles notes. “We give our renters the lowest housing density with the greatest amount of green spaces. This strategy extends beyond improving air quality and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. These plants can also minimize pollutants in storm water and reduce overall neighborhood noise. One healthy tree is equal to 10 standard room-sized air conditioners running up to 20 hours a day. Our trees provide much needed shade from the Texas heat and can help our renters reduce cooling needs by up to 30%.”

In Texas, bigger is better – especially when it describes living space. With the increasing popularity and necessity of urban life, renters subsequently suffer from a decrease of square footage in the average apartment– which is what makes the spacious living arrangements of Marcus Hiles’ Western Rim properties so incredibly attractive. Each and every property is solicitously created to meet the modern renter’s need for ample living space, ensuring an oasis to come home to in the midst of today’s bustling crowded society.
