Mercer Crossing is at the heart of the Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex, located near the junction between interstates 635, 35E, George Bush Tollway, and Sam Rayburn Tollway. Fifty companies currently call Mercer Crossing home and 1,000 residential lots are under completion; all under contract with national builders. The first phase of a 1,200 unit apartment complex is also nearing completion. This 370-acre mixed use development will be home to 174 acres of residential single-family homes and 93 acres of retail, shopping and office space. With bike trails and shaded structures throughout, as well as several parks and open spaces, Mercer Crossing will provide a warm and inviting atmosphere not typically seen in an urban setting. The community will be comprised of six distinct and separate residential neighborhoods whose Texas Tudor style architecture is inspired by 17th century England and meant to evoke feelings of the English countryside. Mercer Crossing will also boast a state-of-the-art amenity center and is close to numerous business districts.

Windmill Farms is a gorgeous master-planned community east of Dallas, in Forney, Texas. Located just past I-635, off Hwy 80, this family-friendly setting is conveniently located near all the fine dining, shopping, and entertainment that the heart of Dallas has to offer. This neighborhood also rewards homeowners with endless amenities including expansive swimming pools, playgrounds, ponds, picnic areas, and highly acclaimed schools. Windmill Farms combines the excitement of Dallas and the small-town, relaxed feel of Forney.

The next Windmill Farms subdivision is currently being completed by two national home builders purchasing all 250 lots. The next three subdivisions will be completed this summer with national home builders purchasing all 591 lots. Final designs are being reviewed for a significant new amenity center for the new subdivisions. Planning is also underway for two retail projects, and an apartment complex is also planned in the area.

“Windmill Farms remains the top new home community in the top Metroplex relocation areas, and Mercer Crossing is the newest dynamic development in the area,” commented Daniel J. Moos, TCI & Southern Properties’ CEO. “These developments are a perfect example of our organization’s strategic vision, coupled with our development capabilities.”
