LITTLE ELM, DENTON COUNTY - After eight months of planning, Dallas-based Hillwood Communities has kicked off its massive $600 million master-planned community along the US 380 corridor that will bring 2,400 homes to North Texas.

The 787-acre community — named Union Park — will include a 30-acre park with ponds, trails and woods.

"Our first phase will include 400 home lots, which is a big phase," Fred Balda, president of Hillwood Communities. "I think the bar has been raised for master-planned communities in this area. There's an incredible amount of options for buyers right now and there's a lot of tours hitting this corridor."

Plans for the project include an amenity center and an amphitheater, which will serve as a central gathering place for the community's residents.

And a food truck area, ball fields, camping areas, hike-and-bike trails and other programming to give this project a neighborhood environment.

Hillwood also wanted more than twice the required green space at Union Park to give residents a small-town community feel and to encourage socializing.
