Groundbreaking for new David Weekley subdivision, Lake Highlands Town Center

Example of bungalow style Weekley home

Enclave at Lake Highlands Town Center in Dallas, a Central Living by David Weekley Homes development offering single-family homes on the southeast corner of Walnut Hill Lane and Skillman Street, hosts its groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday, July 18 at 1:30 p.m. Whew — wear you sweat-wicking fabrics, attendees, because it sounds hot.

Adam McGough Dallas Council rep for District 10; Tracy Brown, Division President, David Weekley Homes; TJ Moore, Land Development Project Manager, David Weekley Homes; Wes Homeyer, Land Acquisition Manager, David Weekley Homes; and Doug Woodard, Central Living Project Manager, David Weekley Homes all are expected to be on hand. If you have any questions you’d like me to ask about the particular project, put them in the comments section. 

As most of us around here know, the Town Center is a long-time-coming 70-acre mixed-use, transit oriented development. One of our more comprehensive reports can be found here. Several residential constructs are in business or underway. Publicists for the Enclave project expound on their plan, “Enclave at Lake Highlands Town Center will offer two series of homes: Bungalow and Park, which will include seven open-concept floor plans ranging in size from 1,800-2,800 square feet. Homebuyers will enjoy walkability to shops at Lake Highlands at Town Center, including a Sprouts Farmers Market. The community is also in close proximity to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, the Lake Highlands DART station with convenient access to the Dallas area via I-635 and U.S. 75. There are also extensive green spaces and miles of trails at nearby White Rock Creek Greenbelt.”

David Weekley Homes, founded in 1976, is headquartered in Houston and operates in 23 cities across the United States. Currently the company has three Lake Highlands projects: One is underway kitty corner across Skillman from the Town Center, next to Fields Cemetery (though a moderate fortress should wholly separate the new above-ground residents from those buried next door).

Another occupies a 7-acre spot, once part of a defunct eyesore of abandoned apartment complexes, behind Kroger at Plano north of Northwest.
