A master-planned community featuring 3,300 single-family homes and a resort-style “lazy river” pool is coming to a booming area of Fort Worth.

A 1,100-acre neighborhood called Wildflower Ranch, near the Texas Motor Speedway at State Highway 114 and I-35W in far north Fort Worth, was unveiled August 6 by Houston-based real estate developer and investor Hines LP.

Aside from the 3,300 homes and the massive figure-eight-shaped pool, the community will offer trails, playgrounds, a community pavilion, and a site for a Northwest ISD school. Homes will be priced affordably, from the mid-$200s to the $400s.

The first phase of Wildflower Ranch will consist of 400 single-family homes built by Beazer Homes, Bloomfield Homes, Gehan Homes, Highland Homes, and Lennar Homes. These homes are scheduled to be ready for move-in early next year.

Hines has tapped Goodwin & Marshall and Cody John Studios for design work, and Conatser Construction and RPM X Construction for construction work.

“The area is flourishing with growth, and we hope Wildflower Ranch will serve as a magnetic addition to the area,” Dustin Davidson, managing director of Hines, says in a release.

Likewise, on the Wildflower site, the developer touts location, location, location as a major draw to the neighborhood.

"Just north of Fort Worth, where Texas heritage meets artful sophistication, Wildflower Ranch is for those looking forward to life outside the big city. It’s a welcomed change of pace that’s open and free," they say. "You can let the kids explore idyllic acreage of native landscape, splash in the lazy river, rock hop Harriet Creek, play ball, then call them home when dinner’s ready."

Other than the Texas Motor Speedway, major developments in the area include the AllianceTexas project and the headquarters of financial services giant Charles Schwab.

"A booming job market, Top-15 school district, and family-friendly amenities welcome you with open arms and make you proud to call Wildflower Ranch home," the developers say.
