Perot Family Honored with Inaugural ULI North Texas Vision Award

On Thursday evening, the Urban Land Institute (ULI) North Texas District Council presented Ross Perot and Ross Perot, Jr. with its 2015 Vision Award for the significant impact they have made on the region through real estate developments and philanthropic efforts.

The Perots were selected as the first recipients of the Vision Award, which was established to honor real estate professionals who have made outstanding, positive lifetime contributions to the region and demonstrated innovation, creativity and a commitment to service.

Approximately 500 guests attended the ULI Impact Awards ceremony at Union Station in Dallas, where the Perots were recognized for building successful projects such as Legacy Business Park, AllianceTexas and Victory Park, along with their current efforts to develop Frisco Station and the new Turtle Creek campus. ULI also acknowledged the Perots’ unwavering commitment to giving back, particularly through the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

Following the award presentation, Clyde Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Wynne/Jackson, led a Q&A discussion with Mr. Perot and Ross about their unique family dynamic and the opportunistic vision that has helped them carry out large-scale projects that greatly benefit the community.

A tribute video showcasing the Perot family’s entrepreneurial history aired at the event, featuring interviews with Mort Meyerson, Congresswoman Kay Granger, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, Frisco Mayor Maher Maho, Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, Former Texas Senator and Plano Mayor Florence Shapiro and EDS Legacy Project Director Robbie Robinson.

Hillwood Communities was also honored at the event, receiving ULI’s Innovation Award for its LiveSmart principles and environmentally friendly elements at Harvest.

Congratulations to both the Perot family and the Hillwood Communities team for receiving these important business accolades, and for your tremendous leadership, innovation and continued success!


Home To Be Gifted To Wounded Warrior

Army veteran Randy Nantz, with children Ashley and Joshua, soon will receive a mortgage-free house in the Harvest development. Nantz, 47, was a Special Operations communications sergeant when a roadside bomb hit his Humvee in Iraq in 2006.

In 2006, Randy Nantz lay in an emergency room in Baghdad with his legs badly burned and a large portion of his rear end blown off by an explosive.

The Green Beret communications sergeant had just survived a blast from a roadside bomb. Deployed with the 5th Special Forces Group, Nantz’s unit had been on its way to check out a “bad neighborhood” in Baghdad when the explosive struck his Humvee and left his leg engulfed in flames.

“It went through the fuel tank,” he said. “The fuel ignited and sprayed across my leg. It was like going from not on fire to lighting a matchstick.”

His injuries were severe, and after a grueling rehabilitation process, Nantz now has a prosthetic lower left leg. Ten years later, the retired soldier and his family have been selected by the nonprofit Building Homes for Heroes to receive a mortgage-free, 2,600-square-foot home in the Harvest development west of Argyle.

“I don’t have the adequate words to describe how I feel,” said Nantz, a 47-year-old Fort Worth resident. “It’s just something that’s still even hard for me to believe. It’s almost like it’s still not real.”

Building Homes for Heroes typically doesn’t partner with developers, according to president and founder Andy Pujol. But Hillwood Communities, a commercial and residential real estate developer, wanted to celebrate the Fourth of July by donating land in Harvest.

The homebuilders started construction last month, and the house is expected to be completed in January, according to a news release from the developer. The house will be designed to meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards, offering widened door frames, handlebars in the shower and a spacious living area.

“There will be times when he’s wheelchair-bound,” Pujol said. “We’re going to make sure if and when that time does occur, he’ll be able to access everything.”

The backyard will include soothing running water elements, which are proven to help veterans who suffer from some form of post-traumatic stress disorder, he said.

“Anyone who’s gone through the type of injury that Randy has, just about anyone will experience it,” Pujol said.

While Nantz is receiving a tremendous amount of support from these organizations, he is no stranger to supporting fellow veterans himself. In 2007, he was part of the U.S. Special Operations Command Care Coalition, which works with nongovernment agencies to assist wounded, ill and injured Special Operations service members.

Nantz, who enlisted in the Army just weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, is now the programs and services director at the Green Beret Foundation. And he has left lasting impressions on Pujol and on the senior vice president at Hillwood, Angie Mastrocola.

“Just being in his presence and seeing his demeanor and his pride was just an honor,” Mastrocola said. “It blew my mind to be around someone who was that brave and gave so much of their life.”
