New residential community coming north of Fort Worth will bring 1,000 homes

A new residential community on the way north of Fort Worth will bring more than 1,000 homes.

The Ridge at Northlake is on Robson Ranch Road near the town of Northlake in Denton County. Its first phase will include 267 home sites and a four-acre community center with a swimming pool and splash park.

Houses in the development will be priced from the $300,000s.

Future plans include an adventure park for young children and teens, a second amenity campus with a pool, outdoor game areas and lawns and an extensive community trail system.

McKinney's new Painted Tree community is planned to have more than 3,000 homes.

“When planning The Ridge, we knew we wanted to push the notion of what an active neighborhood could mean for families,” said a statement from Ryan Huey, vice president for corporate land investment for builder Taylor Morrison Homes and managing partner for The Ridge. “We wanted to create a place where you and your family could thrive, laugh and play together whether you are young or young at heart.”

Along with Taylor Morrison, other homebuilders in the community are Coventry Homes, Highland Homes and Meritage Homes.

The Ridge at Northlake is one of a growing number of new residential communities in the I-35W corridor between Fort Worth and Denton.

Taylor Morrison is based in Arizona and also builds under the Darling Homes brand.

In North Texas, the company builds in almost a dozen locations with prices starting at less than $250,000.

With home sales surging, builders are scrambling to locate new residential sites in North Texas. New home starts in the area were up almost 18% year over year in the most recent quarter.

The Ridge at Northlake will eventually have 1,000 homes.
