FORT WORTH - A 7,200-acre master-planned community that will bring 15,000 homes to West Fort Worth is expected to get underway in late 2015.

The $6 billion community called Walsh will be developed east of I-20 and I-30 by the Walsh family and Dallas-based Republic Property group.

Plans for the master-planned community will also include a variety of projects, including millions of sf of office, retail, restaurant and medical facilities. The development could include a business park, or could include a corporate campus on a particular 194-acre triangular piece of land for a corporate campus.

The land totals 11.4 square miles and has been the location of the F. Howard Walsh Family ranching operations for the last 70 years.

About two-thirds of the master-planned community sits in Aledo ISD. An overpass — Walsh Ranch Parkway — is being put in to access the community. The development group plans to start on 1,700 acres initially, which will bring about 3,000 homes to the region in the next decade.

The first homes are set to be finished by the end of 2016.
