From Dallas/Fort Worth to Houston, clients include the Dallas and Houston district offices of TxDOT, Haltom City, O.R. Colan Associates and Halff Associates.

HLP works with the lead appraisers, staff engineers, consulting appraisers and consulting engineers to evaluate the existing use of the property and establish appropriate solutions for remainder tracts.

HLP is also on the team of consultants engaged by the Houston-Galveston Area Council to evaluate the SH 6 corridor northwest of Houston. HLP is charged with analyzing the potential for location and design of livable centers throughout the project scope and the final design of a livable center to determine the development impact of vertical mixed use within a transportation corridor. HLP also assisted in the property and accessibility analysis of the corridor; reviewing the impacts of future rights-of-way and accessibility.
