The Westlake community is building an eye-popping town center right at the corner of state Highway 114 and Davis Boulevard.
The plans are impressive – a $500 million mixed-use development built on 85 acres of prime real estate in Westlake.
“We’re hoping to develop a synergy for the town," said Eddie Edwards, Westlake’s director of planning and development.
Built to resemble a 400-year-old village along the Spanish coast, Westlake Entrada will feature a 3,500-seat performance hall, three hotels and more than 100 townhomes and villas along with retail, restaurant and office space.
“We’re looking at it as almost a town center-type development where people could come to dine, visit with their neighbors. Its within walking distance of some of the neighborhoods," Edwards said.
The developer, Jeffory Blackard, also built Adriatica Village in McKinney, inspired by a seaside fishing village in Croatia.
Westlake hopes to break ground on Entrada before the end of summer 2014.
