Friendswood Development Company is a major real estate developer in Greater Houston. It is headquartered at 550 Greens Parkway, a building in the Greenspoint area of Houston.[2][3]

Major master-planned communities that have been developed by Friendswood Development include: Fairfield, Clear Lake City and Kingwood.[4] The company also developed the Barbours Cut shipping terminal at Morgan's Point in conjunction with the Port of Houston authority, and the Bayport Industrial Complex in La Porte/Pasadena.[5]

Friendswood Development was originally owned by Exxon. Around December 1992 there were plans to move Friendswood Development Company's offices from Three Greenspoint to the Anadarko Tower, a facility built in a two-year period prior to December 1992. [6]

In 1995 Exxon announced plans to sell the Friendswood Development Company.[7]
