NBC 5 Denton Country Reporter Brian Scott told viewers Friday of the traveling tree farm at Lakeside DFW. (Click here to view the story.)
The Lakeside DFW tree farm located at the north side of the northwestern corner of Lakeside Parkway and International Parkway (FM 2499), Scott reported, was originally created to save and re-use hundreds of live oaks that had been planted along Lakeside 14 years ago.
Officials at Realty Capital, master developer of Lakeside DFW, expected the mature trees could be preserved in this location until they were transplanted to beautify The Shops at Lakeside, which is projected for completion in the fall.
Plans for a 14-story luxury condominium tower at Lakeside DFW were released today.
“We have been listening carefully to the market for a condo tower at Lakeside,” said Richard Myers, managing parter of Realty Capital Management, master developer of Lakeside DFW. “We hope these plans demonstrate how seriously we value that input.
“Naturally, views ranked high on everyone’s wish list,” Myers said. “So each unit will feature a large balcony with outstanding views of Lake Grapevine.” [Click to read the entire story]
Officials of Austin-based Moviehouse & Eatery have selected The Shops at Lakeside, the highly anticipated retail component of Lakeside DFW, for their third location. They expect to begin construction in May.
“Lakeside offers a special environment,” said Leslie Sloan, co-owner of Moviehouse & Eatery, “while Flower Mound plus the surrounding communities provide the perfect location for our business.”
“Moviehouse & Eatery offers an upscale movie and dining experience that sets the tone for The Shops at Lakeside,” said Jimmy Archie, managing director of Realty Capital Management, master developer of Lakeside DFW.
“Yeah, we can do that.”
That’s the motto of BNSF Logistics, which recently announced the move of its worldwide headquarters (and 50 employees) from Grapevine to Flower Mound.
“This move,” emphasized Jimmy Stathatos, town manager of Flower Mound, “is just the start.”
“There is a lot of pent-up demand and we expect many more announcements of companies moving to Flower Mound.”
The concrete began pouring early this morning on Sandy Lane at Lakeside DFW.
It won’t stop for approximately 4 weeks.
“We expect to have all the streets paved in about 2 weeks,” said Scot Whitwer, manager of the single-family home construction site.
Once all the streets have been paved, concrete will be poured for the sidewalks, back fill, and trails.
Cannongate Drive (just north of Lakeside DFW) is expected to re-open in time for the morning commute on Thursday (July 11).
Confusion over the identity and location of an existing water utility caused the delay. Please accept our apologies.
The first steps toward the paving of streets in Phase I of the single-family residential section will be taken late this week and during the coming week.
