Families seeking homes west of Fort Worth have more options on the horizon.
While Walsh Ranch promises thousands of new residences in coming years, another nearby residential development is expected to add more than 2,000 single-family options of its own.
“It’s a great property, a great opportunity,” said Kim Gill, who is joining fellow Fort Worth developer Tim Fleet in building Morningstar, a 737-acre development just north of Interstate 20 off Farm Road 3325 in Fort Worth’s extraterritorial jurisdiction in Parker County. That’s west of the larger and more publicized Walsh Ranch development, also along I-20, but Gill and Fleet foresee no competition.
“From reports I’ve seen, theirs is more expensive than our product and they will do much larger lots,” said Kim Gill, president of Fort Worth-based Sable Development LLC. He pointed to Walsh Ranch’s housing prices as expected to be higher than those of Morningstar, whose first homes will start construction late next March.
