Bayside Land Partners to Develop $1B Mixed-Use Project in Rowlett, Texas
ROWLETT, TEXAS — Bayside Land Partners, a partnership between Kent Donahue and Wilks Development, is developing Bayside, a $1 billion master-planned project encompassing 262 acres and featuring a variety of retail, restaurants, residential units and a resort hotel in the Lake Ray Hubbard area of Rowlett.
Designed as a pedestrian-friendly, open-air resort, Bayside will feature more than 1.5 million square feet of commercial space, 3,000 residential units, a 1,000-slip marina and 700 hotel rooms.
Lifescapes International will provide landscape design services for the project, including the development of the first-ever Crystal Lagoon in Texas. A Crystal Lagoon is a new technology that creates man-made lagoons with crystal-clear, turquoise waters in order to create a beachfront property. Additionally, Lifescapes will design a 116-acre peninsula, including 25 acres of parks, a variety of retail rooftop gardens and beach zones and the perimeter of the eight-acre Crystal Lagoon.
Construction on the lagoon is slated to start this March and the project is scheduled to open by spring 2019.
