Developers will have the first homes ready in a few months in a 2,000-acre mixed-use community in Forney.

The Gateway Parks project south of U.S. Highway 80 will have 439 single-family home sites in the first phase.

Builders David Weekley Homes, Gehan Homes and Horizon Homes will sell new houses starting in the mid-$200,000s.

“We’ve brought in a slate of quality builders at an affordable price point that buyers want,” Alan Bain, Gateway’s Vice President of Real Estate Development, said in a statement. “The first builder models will be open in early 2017 and since the number of new, affordable homes available in D-FW is at an all-time low, this inventory should help ease that buyer demand.”

The 2-story homes will range from 1,800 to 3,500 square feet in the Gateway Parks community.

Gateway Parks also includes a resort-style amenity center with a clubhouse, three swimming pools and an event lawn with an outdoor entertainment stage. Read More >
