Lazy Dog

Southern California-based Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar has opened its second Texas location in Plano at Village 121 on 8401 Preston Road. The restaurant opened Nov. 23 and will mark the family-run company’s 21st location, bringing more than 200 new jobs to the area. Lazy Dog opened its first Texas restaurant in Addison at Village On The Parkway, and a third location is scheduled to open in the Euless at Glade Parks early next year.

“As we continue expansion of Lazy Dog in Texas, we are thrilled to be joining the Plano community,” said Chris Simms, founder and CEO of Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar. “Plano is a vibrant city with neighborhoods filled with families and growing business centers. With our strong commitment to providing innovative scratch cooking and genuine hospitality, we believe the Lazy Dog concept will fit perfectly with the residents and daytime workers of these neighborhoods.”

Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar’s 9,356 square-foot interior will be designed to feel like a Rocky Mountain Wyoming escape, featuring grand lodge-inspired furnishings such as cozy fireplaces, ledge stone, a chandelier crafted from Aspen logs, as well as artwork reminiscent of the Cowboy State. Additionally, a 1,300 square-foot dog-friendly patio will offer a dog menu, featuring grilled meats and brown rice. Multiple flat screen TVs will be installed throughout the bar and patio areas for guests to cheer on their favorite sports teams. The restaurant’s interior will accommodate 252 guests, while the outdoor patio will seat 68.

Executive chef is Gabriel (Gabe) Caliendo. To complement the scratch-kitchen dishes, diners can choose from handcrafted cocktails like the Coconut Mojito or the Mango Chile Margarita, as well as a thoughtful selection of craft beers from local breweries like Deep Ellum Brewing Co. and Revolver Brewing.

Homebuilders announced for Forney residential community

David Weekley Homes, Gehan Homes and Horizon Homes have been chosen as homebuilders for Gateway Parks, a 2,000-acre master-planned community in the Kaufman County town of Forney east of Dallas.

The newly announced builders will kick off the first phase with 439 homes, priced from the mid-$200s. All three firms are building on 50-foot and 60-foot lot sizes.

“We’ve brought in a slate of quality builders at an affordable price point that buyers want,” said Alan Bain, vice president-real estate development with project developer Gateway Holdings LP, commenting in a news release.

The first models will be open in early 2017.

One- and two-story homes are available from 1,800 square feet to 3,500 square feet with several floor plans. Residents can expect a 9,000-square-foot resort-style amenity center featuring a clubhouse, a three-pool complex and an event lawn with an outdoor entertainment stage.

Gateway Parks will be in the Forney public school system, with amenities including jogging trails, playground areas and several planned parks that will have room for soccer and baseball fields.

Developers have set aside land for an elementary school site within the community to accommodate future growth and provide residents with a Forney Independent School District school within walking distance.

Gateway Parks eventually will offer 1,840 single-family homes. Additional plans for the community consists of a 40-acre retail center and over 1,300 acres for commercial/office, medical, retail, hotel and some additional residential.
