Chisholm Trail Ranch development underway
The Walton Group of Companies has broken ground on Chisholm Trail Ranch, a 600-acre master-planned community of residential and commercial properties in far south Fort Worth.
Walton, a privately held, multinational real estate investment and development group, announced the project earlier this year and broke ground in October.
The Arizona-based firm, with offices in Texas, touts the development as the first such project along the $1.4 billion Chisholm Trail Parkway, which opened in May 2014.
Construction financing is provided by Southwest Bank of Fort Worth.
Chisholm Trail Ranch, at Chisholm Trail Parkway and McPherson Boulevard, is located in the Crowley Independent School District and will be served by a new elementary school, which will be part of the first phase of the development. Chisholm Trail Ranch will include about 1,100 single-family homes.
Chisholm Trail Ranch will be part of a hike-and-bike trail system linking existing parks and school sites throughout the area. It also features Fort Worth’s new 75-acre Chisholm Trail Park, anchored by the new Chisholm Trail Community Center, all adjacent to existing and new development along McPherson Boulevard.
“The groundbreaking marks the beginning of an important new community at Chisholm Trail Ranch,” said District 6 Councilman Jungus Jordan, commenting in a news release.
“Having worked closely with Walton on this project, I believe it’s a strong step in the right direction toward spurring economic development and growth in this part of Fort Worth,” Jordan said.
Walton will oversee the horizontal infrastructure improvements serving the single-family lots. The land was purchased from Stratford Land and the real estate investment firm Legacy Capital, who will be executing the commercial component of the project.

Southlake Glen offers Northeast Tarrant County a new upscale option when the residential community on more than 9.7 acres is complete.

Prices start in the mid-$600,000s. The homes will be within walking distance of Carroll Middle School in Southlake. The development will feature hiking and biking trails, mature trees, common park areas, three ponds and a boardwalk.

BASSETT FURNITURE PLANS
GRAND PRAIRIE FACILITY
Bassett Furniture has announced plans for a 80,000-square-foot upholstery manufacturing facility in Grand Prairie.
Set to open in early 2016, the facility will be located in Wildlife Park and will produce sofas, loveseats, sectionals and chairs. It will also house a home-delivery hub for Zenith Global Logistics.
“Our upholstery sales have experienced double digit growth for the last several years,” said Robert H. Spilman Jr., president and CEO of Bassett Furniture, commenting in a news release.
Bassett plans to open the facility in February, with employment reaching 70 or more within 20 months, according to the company.
News of the Grand Prairie facility follows two years of deep investments by the firm in its U.S. domestic manufacturing facilities. Last year, it opened a new wood facility in its hometown of Bassett, Va., to produce handmade dining furniture. The company also expanded its table plant in Martinsville, Va., and made capital improvements to its upholstery manufacturing complex in Newton, N.C.
Dollar General, a 9,014-square-foot, net-leased property in the town of Aubrey, has been sold, according to Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services. Terms of the sale were not released.
Blake Burnett of Marcus & Millichap’s Dallas office marketed the property on behalf of the seller, an out-of-state individual/personal trust. The buyer, a local limited liability company, also was procured by Burnett. The transaction closed in fewer than 45 days.
“Once I exposed the asset to Marcus & Millichap’s nationwide network of investors, we received multiple offers from across the country, Texas and the local area,” Burnett said in a news release.
“The sale of the Dollar General in Aubrey exemplifies the strength of the market and the demand for product in these outlying, growing areas,” Burnett said.
