Hillwood Properties has another big project in the works in northeast Tarrant County.

A five-phase mixed-use development consisting of offices, apartments, retail and a hotel are part of a 128 acre project in Westlake. Hillwood presented the plans to Westlake’s Planning and Zoning Commission on Nov. 9. The commission is expected to vote on the zoning changes required for the project at its Dec. 1 meeting.

Hillwood is asking for approvals to build a corporate office campus with more than 2 million square feet of space in several buildings, 750 apartments, a 200-room hotel, a 350,000 square foot mid-rise office and 80,000 square feet featuring retail and entertainment, including a movie theater. The first phase of the project would include a 286,000-square-foot office project, the hotel, retail space and 250 residential units.

Called the Circle T project after the ranch that was located at the intersection of Highway 377 and State Highway 114, Hillwood is partnering with Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corp. on the development. Howard Hughes Corp. was also involved in developing The Woodlands near Houston, Summerlin in Las Vegas, the Seaport District in Lower Manhattan and Ward Village in Honolulu. Hillwood acquired the Circle T property in 1993.

Renderings and photos from the site indicate they plan an urban village concept along with native grasses, green space and a prairie landscape.

Other participants in the project include architecture, design, planning and consulting firm Gensler; architect Corgan Associates of Dallas; engineering and consulting firm Peloton Land Solutions; and engineering, architecture and consulting firm Burns & McDonnell. Hillwood officials have not commented on the project.
