Highland Homes will build townhomes in new Walsh neighborhood “The Village.”


The far west Fort Worth development Walsh is continuing to expand its residential offerings with a walkable neighborhood.

The 7,200-acre mixed use development 12 minutes from downtown Fort Worth is adding 138 new homes in a neighborhood phase called “The Village.”

The new neighborhood is unique because it will be adjacent to future retail, including restaurants and shops.

“They can walk everywhere,” said Jim Henry, senior vice president of community operations at Republic Property Group, the lead Walsh developer.

“The Village” will include 35- and 50-foot lots as well as townhomes with enclosed front courtyards. It will feature offerings from builders including David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, High Street Homes and Village Homes.

Townhomes are expected to start in the mid-$400,000s, and homes on larger lots will start in the mid-$500,000s. The new architectural style of this phase will be slightly more urban, Henry said.

“I could see first-time homebuyers. I could see young singles and young couples, maybe with one child. But I can also see empty-nesters being in that sort of small ‘urban’ core,” he said.

Henry expects construction will begin within 90 days.

The new neighborhood’s homes will be near the Village Market, Athletic Club, resort-style pools and multiple neighborhood parks. The development also includes parks, lakes, pools, community gardens and miles of bike trails. In the future.

These new homes will be in the Aledo school district.
