Friendswood Development Company is a major real estate developer in Greater Houston. It is headquartered at 681 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]

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. [5]

In 1995 Exxon announced plans to sell the Friendswood Development Company.[6] The company is now owned by Lennar, one of the nation's largest home building companies.
