Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Dallas Real Estate - New Frisco Development

Dallas Real Estate - New Frisco Development

A new development is slated to start next month in Frisco, Crosswinds.  This will be 1000 acres of Residential and parks off Lebanon and west of the Tollway.  It looks as though the lot sizes might be a bit larger than what we're used to seeing these days.  The original plot was for 5100 houses and now it's only going to have 3228 houses.  The reason for this was to have some larger green, open areas, but hopefully this means it won't be a normal track-home neighborhood.

So many of my buyers are sick of the neighborhoods where you can reach out and touch your neighbor.  They're always counting the number of windows that overlook a backyard of a potential new home.

There is also a survey conducted on whether or not Frisco is building too much. Results, thus far, are:

71.65% say Yes, the small town feeling is fading fast.

25.98% say NO, the more people and retail centers, the better.

Me?  I voted in the NO category. If you're going to be part of the Dallas Metroplex, you're not going to be able t hold your small-town way of life!

Kinda, not completely... the Tollway ends right there, but they're working on it to go about 10 more miles north.  Within a mile or so, you have tons of shopping, office buildings, Frisco's minor leaque baseball team, Pizza Hut Park which is where all the soccer clubs play, and so much more.  At this time, traffic would be a headache, but in about 2 years, it might be nice to live over there.  More traffic, but more lanes to handle it all.
