Huffines Communities has released new details about the Lakesong community previously reported by the Dallas Business Journal

The development will span over 2,000 acres and total about 3,000 single-family homes by the time the dust clears. Eventually, about 10,000 people will call the community home. 

Those 2,000 acres include both Grand Prairie and Midlothian and represent an enormous swath of undeveloped land near the urban cores of DFW.  

Construction will kick off in 2024, according to a news release.

Located near the southern tip of Joe Pool Lake, fronting Hwy 287 & near Hwy 67, Lakesong will encompass various residential and mixed-use elements. 

“We have been working with the wonderful staff at the City of Grand Prairie for almost two years to design a truly unique and magnificent community that will delight future residents. Each master-planned community we construct always surpasses the last, and Lakesong will be unbelievable,” said Phillip Huffines, owner of Huffines Communities, in a prepared statement.

The project will also include 330 acres of open spaces and parks, a connected 20-mile trail system, 3,000 single-family lots, about 2,000 multifamily units and about 37 acres of mixed-use development. 

The site will also feature the 100-acre Padera Lake. 

On Tuesday, the Grand Prairie City Council approved a development agreement for Lakesong. 

“This development represents a valuable new addition to our city’s progressive vision,” said Grand Prairie City Manager Bill Hills, in a prepared statement. “We are excited to move forward with a project that will provide current and future Grand Prairie residents with new residential and recreational options.”

The residential aspects of Lakesong will feature a variety of housing types and densities, including apartments, townhomes, 40′, 55′, 60′, 75′, 80′ and 1/3 acre lots.
