Last week’s announcement that The Charles Schwab Corp. plans to build a 1,200-employee corporate campus on the former Circle T Ranch was apparently just the beginning for the fast-growing area of northern Tarrant and southern Denton County.
Hillwood, one of the region’s largest real estate developers, and The Howard Hughes Corp. announced plans Wednesday to move forward with a 130-acre mixed-use development that includes the $100 million Schwab campus at the intersection of Texas 114 and Texas 170 near the Westlake-Roanoke border.
The project will include restaurants, retail shops, day care and a fitness center, said Mike Berry, president of Hillwood Properties, known for creating Alliance. It will also include residential areas and a 200-room hotel. Work at the site is expected to begin this fall and continue for several years, roughly following Schwab’s plan to open its campus by early 2019.
