Since the launch of Professional Builder’s Daily Feed newsletter on June 4, 2014, I have scanned thousands upon thousands of news stories about or related to home building in some way.

Sandlin Homes announced today a $43 million master planned residential development in Fort Worth, Texas, located near the intersection of North Beach Street and North Tarrant Parkway, just north of Thompson Road. The community, called Pine Meadows, is scheduled to break ground in June and will offer homes from the $150s.
“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. 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.
Keller is located in the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, with easy access to major business and activity centers. The city’s quality of life include parks, miles of hike and bike trails along meandering creeks, and in-line hockey, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and baseball fields. Money magazine named the city of Keller 7th in its top 100 “Best Places to Live” ranking of small U.S. towns in 2013, citing the city’s energy industry that has bolstered the region, as well as major offices just outside the city for FedEx, Fidelity Investments, and Sabre Holdings.
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 DFW housing market.
