Located near the Chisholm Trail Parkway, the Pate Ranch area is increasingly attracting people looking to relocate to this area, and the council is helping make room for them.
The Fort Worth City Council on Oct. 16 approved a zoning change that will allow a detached multi-family/cottage community in Pate Ranch. The change, requested by Pate Single Family, Commercial & Ranch Land LPS, covers the 7300-7500 blocks of Chisholm Trail Parkway. The zoning change is from one-family and planned development for all uses in high-intensity, mixed use to planned development for all uses in low-density multi-family with development standards plus cottage community.
The property is south of Altamesa Boulevard and west of Chisholm Trail Parkway on the west side of the future Harris Parkway.
The zoning change was requested to create a “cottage community” that would include multiple separate structures on one lot, shared community space and a leasing office on site. The proposed development would consist of 185 detached dwelling units in five different types, mostly one- and two-bedroom units.
The site will use the single-family parking ratio of two spaces per unit.
The proposed developer, Ladera, has built and operates similar communities in Mansfield, Highland Village and Rockwall.
Since the multi-family development exceeds 100 units, a second point of access is required. This property is a deep lot in a developing area. Harris Parkway is under construction and when completed will connect Altamesa Boulevard to Bryant Irvin Road.
