Residential development planned for north Fort Worth

Sandlin Homes plans a $43 million master planned residential development in north Fort Worth the company announced today.
Located near the intersection of North Beach Street and North Tarrant Parkway, just north of Thompson Road, Pine Meadows is scheduled to break ground in June. Home prices will begin about $150,000.


“We chose this location because of the opportunity for our residents to live in the exceptional Keller ISD,” said Scott Sandlin. “This fantastic location combined with our reputation as a quality builder will create a high demand from families looking for first time and move-up homes in this area.”


Approximately 185 single-family homes with an average lot size of 50 feet wide are planned for the community. North Richland Hills-based Sandlin will be building its Cornerstone Series on half of the lots and has sold the remaining lots to Holiday Homes. Amenities include a large feature pond, brick perimeter walls and professional landscaping.
Earlier this month Sandlin announced a $50 million development in North Richland Hills. The master planned development, called Cambridge, is also scheduled to break ground in June and will offer homes from the $200s, adding a combined 377 lots to the area housing market.
