2,500-plus home Madero development to add ‘value-oriented’ housing in Fort Worth



PLANO, TX – Plano-based residential developer and builder Green Brick Partners is partnering with an Arizona-based homebuilder on a more than 2,500-home project north of Sendera Ranch in Fort Worth.

Green Brick (Nasdaq: GRBK) and Scottsdale-based Taylor Morrison (NYSE: TMHC)  have closed on the purchase of nearly 900 acres near U.S. Highway 287 for the development, the companies announced.

Development of the community, called Madero, is projected to start in the first quarter of 2021 and will include 50-, 60-, and 77-foot wide homesites in multiple phases. Construction of the homes is slated to begin by early 2022.

At full buildout, Madero will have more than 2,500 “value-oriented” homes, according to a news release from the companies.

The development plan includes two amenity centers with resort-style pools, expansive green spaces with walking trails, parks and a neighborhood retail area.

The homes will be in Fort Worth’s Northwest Independent School District and are less than a 30-minute commute from downtown Fort Worth.

Green Brick Partners will sell about 1,250 homes through its Trophy Signature Homes brand. Homes will range from 1,500 to 3,500 square feet and have three or four bedrooms and two or three bathrooms with prices starting from the high $200,000s.

As part of the Trophy Signature Homes package, all upgrades, including engineered wood floors, Smart Home automation packages and horizontal modern fireplaces, will come standard with each home, said Jed Dolson, chief operating officer for Green Brick Partners.

“We are thrilled to continue expanding our presence in Fort Worth and to provide homebuyers a fantastic opportunity to live in such close proximity to attractive amenities including Eagle Mountain Lake while maintaining easy access to major employment centers,” Dolson said.

Taylor Morrison plans to build 1,250 single-family homes in the community, offering buyers 12 one- and two-story floorplans to choose from ranging in size from 1,400 to 3,000 square feet. The homes will have three or four bedrooms and two or three bathrooms. Pricing for those houses is also expected to start in the high $200s, said Keith Hurand, Taylor Morrison’s division president for DFW.

Taylor Morrison will offer designs inspired by its homeowners with options such as offices to work from home, flex space for home gyms or spaces that facilitate virtual learning, Hurand said.

“North Fort Worth is one of the fastest growing areas of DFW,” he said. “The trend of spending more time at home will not go away any time soon, and homebuyers are seeking master-planned communities like Madero with quality amenities in their neighborhood.”
