Forney's Walden Pond Development Soars With Over 2,000 New Homes in North Texas Growth SpurtSource: Google Street View

A sprawling residential project is gaining momentum in Forney, Texas, where the Walden Pond community is swiftly moving from blueprints to a burgeoning neighborhood. According to The Dallas Express, the Centurion American Development Group has its sights set on sculpting a sizable 2,055 single-family home sites sprawled across 214 acres.

With its ambitious pace, this North Texas development is nothing if not a nod to Forney's rapid growth. Offering a variety of lot options, eager house hunters can select from 40-, 45-, or 50-foot parcels of land for the erection of their homes—amidst pre-sales that have reportedly been climbing. As it emerges to the east and west of FM 548, the community earmarks spaces for parks and trails which underscore a commitment to green living. The homes that have been already built by Brightland Homes and Lennar dwell in Walden Pond East, while UnionMain Homes, reported by the Dallas Business Journal, is setting the stage by opening up their model home on June 10, earlier before rolling out the welcome mat for their future planned 200 domiciles in Walden Pond West.

It's not just the rolling green and promise of community amenity centers that's drawing attention. Forney Independent School District's quality education is a magnet for families. Centrally located, the Walden Pond development offers a slice of suburban tranquility a mere 12 minutes from downtown Forney and a manageable 40-minute commute to the heart of Dallas.

So far, UnionMain Homes has made quick work of their contributions. The Dallas-based constructor, having planted its roots in 2017, has unveiled 50 lots in their section encroaching diligently on their 200-home target. Their floor plans are as diverse as their lot sizes, ranging from 1,511 to a substantial 3,276 square feet, UnionMain scored a spot as the first developer dispensing homes in Walden Pond West, with prices starting at a tempting $309,990. "We are so pleased to add to our unique collection of affordable communities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area that offer the ideal blend of suburban living and modern conveniences,” UnionMain CEO Tim Gehan said, per The Dallas Express.

Beyond Walden Pond, UnionMain has spread its wings over North Texas through its past projects. Including the Brookville Estates with homes priced from $374,990, and Edgewater—a 161-acre development planning around 650 homes, signaling aggressive expansion in an area recognized for its unprecedented population influx. This also marks the continued transformation of Forney, a city that swelled to the ranks of the 10th fastest-growing metropolis in the U.S. last year.
