On this day that ground will officially be broken at Lakeside DFW, it makes sense to reflect on the ground already broken.
Let’s start with breaking the top-down model of development, governed by town officials and/or developers.
Officials with Realty Capital, master developer of Lakeside DFW, began their efforts on the project by meeting with and surveying Flower Mound residents and stakeholders. Over 450 completed surveys (in person or on-line).
When an initial concept plan was completed, Flower Mound residents saw it first. Their feedback shaped revisions to the plan and recommended a Mediterranean theme. Only then was the plan presented to town officials.
