A 5-Acre Crystal Clear LAGOON announced at Prospers Windsong Ranch Development!


Windsong Ranch in Prosper will have the first of its kind in a residential community in North Texas, a Crystal Clear 5-acre Lagoon!

And no, this is not a marketing ploy, this is happening!

Craig Martin with Terra Verde Group purchased the 2,000 acres in 2012. I heard about it and I personally thought they were nuts and it was going to be a huge disappointment because there was literally nothing around the acreage but more farmland in West Prosper. Boy was I wrong.

Fast forward 6 years and they have made moves with the City of Prosper that no developer would even think to make at the beginning of a development.

They donated 50 acres to the city for a city park and land for a high school, middle school and two elementary schools. A total of approximately 6 million dollars!

What exactly is a Crystal Lagoon?

Crystal Lagoons is a multi-national company that creates man-made lagoons with crystal clear water and white sandy beaches in places far away from the ocean. Plans are to include a wide variety of recreational activities such as swimming, kayaking remote control boat races, paddle boarding and wind surfing!

I had to take a drive and see it for myself and of course there is a platform with stairs that overlooks the entire lagoon. (Wouldn’t expect anything less from this incredible developer.)

I was curious about how they can keep it clear and clean and was told there is technology that monitors the water and the filtration and is controlled remotely via an internet cloud! Very cool! 😎

Plans are for the lagoon to be open for year round and will have access for food truck vendors. This will be the second of four planned amenity centers for Windsong Ranch.

Below are actual real Crystal Lagoons built in different countries. They look amazing!

At buildout, Windsong Ranch is slated for 3,500 single family homes and will have over 600 acres of green space, parks, creeks, trails and amenities! Wow.

Huntington Homes and Toll Brothers have started Pre-selling on the 86 wide by 130 deep lots directly across from the Lagoon.

If you are interested in living in a development with a LAGOON and 4 amenity centers in West Prosper, text or call Brad Holden today at (469)733-2723 for more info on the 10 Builders!

Edgestone at Legacy in Frisco Announced by Developer Hines for 2016


  After Toll Brothers Development decided not to purchase this prime 311-acre property off of Stonebrook and Legacy to develop in Frisco about 9 months ago, I knew it was only time! 
Edgestone at Legacy in Frisco will be developed by Hines Development and Canadian partner Trez Capital L.P.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Real Estate is about location and The Edgestone at Legacy in Frisco will be the second best location in Frisco in my opinion. Second only to Starwood. 

There is too much commercial development being developed within a mile from this location for it to fail. And more importantly, Stonebrook Parkway plans to FINALLY be complete to the North Dallas Tollroad which will allow residents of Edgestone about a 3 minute drive to the main North/South thoroughfare in Frisco!   I have driven by this piece of land hundreds of times wondering, “What is the deal? Why is this not being developed?” After hearing that Toll Brothers placed it under contract a couple reasons were finally pointed out to me on why it took so long. 

#1 Bert Fields Jr. the Owner

  

Bert Fields was and still is a Frisco ICON! He was a very savvy Texas oilman, banker and rancher. Bert knew business! 

At only 23, he took over the family business of Oil and Banking and basically built it into an empire! In 2011, his North Dallas Bank & Trust celebrated its 50th anniversary with assets over 1 Billion Dollars! Not to mention the other thousand acres he also owns in Frisco. 

So clearly, there was NO REASON to sell the property off for development. 

Bert unfortunately passed away in January of 2015 but already had plans to sell the property to Toll Brothers prior. 

So Bert was just being Bert by holding the property for the absolute best time to sell, and it’s unfortunate he will not get to know how incredible his decision was! 

#2. Massive Flood Plain

 
Developers try their best to make communities beautiful, but more importantly they try to make money. That caused a very big concern for Edgestone at Legacy with the acerage of the natural 100 year floodplain. 

My best guess is 30 to 40% of this piece of land is in the floodplain. For the developer to make this site work they will have to either chop the lots up into very small lots or way over charge the builders on their lot cost. Which obviously means the prices of homes here will not be cheap! 

From the plat map, the current lot sizes look to me as 50 foot wide patio homes and 65 foot single families on the North side of Stonebrook. And 65,75,85+ foot wide lots on the Southern side of the property. 

Hines is very early in this but from my experience with developers and what is currently taking place in Frisco with the high lot costs, my best guess for the the smaller 65 foot wide lots would be around $140,000 and maybe $150,000! 

And that is EXPENSIVE! 

If that is the case when they most likely open towards the end 2016, my best guess that prices would start in the $600’s up to the Millions. So to be in this incredible new community it is going to cost you. 

They do have around 10-15% of the land highlighted senior housing and office to help offset the floodplain location.  

 
Current plans show a beautiful entry, large amenity center, a proposed city park in the floodplain, a long hike and bike trail by the mature trees and a man made pond. 

Builders 

  

Current plans are for Coventry Homes, Darling Homes, Highland Homes, Huntington Homes, Key Life Homes, Shaddock Homes and Village Builders to start initially in the new Edgestone at Legacy project in Frisco. 

  
These builders better bring their A-Game to be successful, and I know most of them for sure will! It’s a great mix of builders announced and with the Dallas Cowboys coming and Grand Park, I don’t see why it won’t be an absolutely amazing community in the future! 

“If you are interested or looking to make a move in the next year or so and you think Edgestone at Legacy in Frisco looks like a good fit, text or call me today at (469) 733-2723 and I can keep you in the loop when the builders plans and pricing come out!”
