Phillips Creek Ranch View

Phillips Creek Ranch in Frisco plans to Pre-sell in July 2012.

The Phillips Creek Ranch Development in Frisco, Texas is ahead of schedule.

The 950 acre community has had plans to open in the Fall of 2012 and from the way things are going now, it looks like pre-selling will begin in mid July.  This almost never happens with developments, especially ones with over 3,700 homes at build-out, but the Republic Property Group seems to have things going pretty smoothly.

Phillips Creek will 9 of DFW’s finest builders: Darling Homes, Highland Homes, K Hovnanian Homes, Huntington Homes, Shaddock Homes, Standard Pacific Homes, LionsGate Homes, Belclaire Homes and Drees Homes.  If you are looking for a community with a variety of home builders, Phillips Creek Ranch in Frisco is your place!

Within Phase one all of the builders will have lots ranging from 55 feet wide up to 83 feet wide ranging from prices of the high $300′s up to 2 Million dollar estate homes.  Quite a significant difference in product and quality, but it looks like it can and will work soundly.  Phase one has 314 lots and I am sure that if anyone with small children are planning to live in Phillips Creek Ranch, Phase one will be the only phase that residents will attend the Blue Ribbon Elementary School Bledsoe.  The school is very well known in Frisco ISD to be the top of its class when it comes to teaching and number of outstanding achievements.

RICHWOODS Frisco – RELEASE OF NEW LOTS, Richwoods Place’s New Incentive and Corn

Posted by    |    May 4th, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Richwoods in FriscoBusy, busy, busy out at Richwoods Development in Frisco. Every time I pull up to one of the two Landon models there are 5-8 cars, I mean every time!

Landon has just released their next section of lots. The picture to the left  is completely up to date on the 64′s with the lot premiums, and which lots KHOV has. Also in the 64′s, Wood Floors are standards now is specific areas!

The 74′s are not complete because I tried two times today to talk to the salespeople and every time they were with people. I will find it all out tomorrow.

I had a question about Newcastle, here you go: Newcastle will be in their trailer tomorrow for the first time this weekend with all of their plans and pricing. Remember, they can do Stucco and they can also build a one-story model around 3,200 square feet.

I had another question about Corn, here you go: The Corn is being leased out to a farmer until the community nears the West side by Coit. They do not have a time frame if and when the corn will be not growing on the land. They also do not have restrictions on what can grow on the land, so there might be other crops.Khov Frisco

Also the picture below is the progress of KHOVs model. It is amazing how quick they can get the models up!

Call me this weekend if you would like for me to show you the standards vs. upgrades in either of the Landon model homes.

And don’t forget about Lawler Park in Frisco coming right behind Richwoods and directly North of Richwoods.  Darling and Highland Homes plan to start pre-selling in the summer of 2012.

Richwoods Development in Frisco plans to build $10 Million dollar amenity center

Posted by    |    April 29th, 2012 at 2:51 am

It never happens in new construction in North Texas, but in June of 2012 in Frisco . . . jaws will drop.

The hottest community in DFW, Richwoods in Frisco, plans to build an amenity center before they start the second set of homes! This is another reason that explains the pent up demand for the location and record breaking sales for Landon Homes in 2012.

The community is located north of 121 in Frisco between Coit and Independence. Roger Lawler, former owner of the Lawler Tract that consists of over 800 total acrea, decided that after he handled his dispute in the courts over a contract gone bad to let it go. And John Landon was the fortunate man to take on the project with his development company Landon Development.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with John, lets just say Meritage Homes. He was responsible for taking the company public and in the past couple years went out on his own and started Landon Homes. (more…)

Lawler Park in Frisco to offer residents easy access to city park

Posted by    |    April 5th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Lawler Park in Frisco will connect community over white rock creek and extend path to Harold Bacchus Park in Frisco.

One of the most anticipated new home communities in Frisco Lawler Park, plans to start models in October of 2012.  The two builders Darling Homes and Highland Homes are just as excited about this community as all of the calls that I am receiving for more information.

A highlight of the community is the connecting path to Harold Bacchus Community Park on Main and Independence.  Phase I is complete, with the grand opening of a youth baseball/softball five-plex, including the Rusty Greer/Texas Rangers Championship Field and the Frisco Miracle League Field, a concession and restroom facility, and several football/soccer multipurpose fields, landscaping, parking and adjacent thoroughfare improvements. Phase II is complete and features the ‘On Deck Circle’ which includes batting cages and tunnels, twelve acres for football/soccer multipurpose fields, two restroom & concession facilities, a signature playground with a picnic pavilion, three additional playgrounds, a two-acre lake and approximately one mile of hike & bike trails.

This will be an unbelievable opportunity for  Lawler Park residents to have such easy access to all of the sports fields.

But remember about the new West Frisco development Phillips Creek Ranch, it will also be one community to put in the mix!

Richwoods and Lawler Park are now Zoned for Curtsinger Elementary

Posted by    |    January 31st, 2012 at 12:09 am

 Frisco ISD has had it in its plans for years, and they have definately stuck with it.

The City and School has always voiced that even with the tremendous growth of Frisco and the ongoing future growth, they have always said that they will do everything they can to stay small.  And boy are they.

The latest change has been changing the “never in stone” zones that each neighborhood will attend.  Currently, even before opening, Richwoods and Lawler Park students were slated to attend Isbell.  Scratch that!  Now they will both feed into Curtsinger.  Richwoods plans to have around 1,600 homes and Lawler Park around 643 homes.

Now lets continue to Middle School.  Both developments originally zoned for Scoggins, but now will attend Vandeventer.

Lastly High School.  Here is where it gets pretty wild.  Centennial High faces East and across the street is Richwoods.  Common sense says Centennial is it, WRONG!  Both Richwoods and Lawler Park students will attend Liberty High, less than one mile East of both developments.

That’s not it.  In 2014, yet again, both Richwoods and Lawler Park students will again change High schools to Frisco’s 7th high school yet to be named on Independence between Main and Eldorado.

Now that’s a lot of kids!

Who Has the best Burger in Frisco?

I woke up this morning with a hankering for a really good burger. Who do you think has the best burger in town?

FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas

Posted by    |    December 24th, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Pizza Hut will no longer be a name-in-title sponsor of Pizza Hut Park at the end of the year. Name-in-title sponsorships are important revenue generators for venues such as this one, and so we suspect FC Dallas’ move to name their venue FC Dallas Stadium is a temporary measure.

Pizza Hut is seeking larger venues and other professional sports to sponsor, but most venues associated with the major sports are taken. So is this about a shift in strategy or simply a matter of cost? The new FC Dallas Stadium is part of the fabric that is Frisco, so we anticipate an organization that is interested in serving Frisco and other nearby communities will come forward.

Before the name comes off, Pizza Hut will enjoy having its name associated with a sell out crowd expected to attend the NCAA Football Championship Game between Sam Houston State University and North Dakota State University. Sam Houston State,14-0, will face the North Dakota State Bearkats,13-1, on Saturday, January 7, 2012, at 1 p.m.

Richwoods in Frisco breaks ground for Opening in January 2012

Richwoods Groundbreaking

Leaders in Frisco break ground in new community Richwoods

The mayor joined representatives from the developer, Landon Development, and builder representatives to kick off the most exciting community to be underway since Lone Star Ranch in 2001. The builders Toll Brothers, K Hovnanian, Newcastle and Landon Homes are all getting conceptuals and marketing materials ready in a hurry due to the tremendous response for information about the community.

I have a total of over 400 inquiries since the development has been announced from the builder and realtor community and it doesn’t stop there. Since my recent video and blogs about Richwoods in Frisco, I have been called or e-mailed in the 20′s in only 2 weeks! There has been a tremendous response for a couple reasons.

One, Location. Where can you find a new home community that is building quality homes in a location like Richwoods? No where! (more…)

Lawler Park in Frisco: Timing is Ideal

Posted by    |    December 15th, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Lawler Park in Frisco is on an exceptional timeline to be extremely successful and profitable in 2012. I am not surprised at all though.

The developer Warren Clark Development is very well known in North Texas real estate. The owners are Warren and Dale Clark. They have created numerous, beautiful new home communities in the past 50 years that the pickiest of buyers couldn’t say no.

Does Cobb Hill in Frisco, Coventry Manor in Southlake or Whitley Place in Prosper ring a bell? They are all the end result of a Warren Clark Development. (more…)

Vandeventer coming to Richwoods in Frisco

Posted by    |    November 28th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

Vandeventer FriscoThe 13th middle school in Frisco ISD will be named for Billy Vandeventer and is scheduled to be completed in May of 2012 and open for the fall. He was the valedictorian of the Frisco High School Class of 1961 who taught in Frisco ISD for 26 years before retiring in 2003.

Vandeventer will be located on Independence on the East side of Richwoods. Under the current proposal, there will be an estimated 759 students. The following communities/neighborhoods proposed to attend Vanderventer are: Bella Vida Apartments, Castlebrook at Ridgeview, Courtney Manor Apartments, Estancia at Ridgeview Ranch, Fairway Villas at Ridgeview, Fairways of Ridgeview, Hunters Creek, Legends at Ridgeview Ranch, Ridgeview Ranch, Ridgeview Ranch Estates, Turnbridge Manor and Villas at Ridgeview Ranch.

One of the most interesting concepts that the school district and Richwoods are discussing is an entry gate towards the back of the school that would allow Richwoods students to enter and leave directly into the community.

Not to mention there is also another Frisco ISD Elementary School planned near the other new home development to the North of Richwoods called Lawler Park.

Sounds very convenient if you ask me!
