The construction of key infrastructure is scheduled to begin in May for the Ascension Seton Medical development, Wolf Lakes LP President Iva Wolf McLachlan said Jan. 6. This includes work on streets, utilities, landscaping, monumentation and water quality lakes, she added. Work will also be done in preparation for another major commercial development that has yet to be announced.

"In addition to the Ascension Seton Medical project, we are currently working with three commercial companies and hope to announce more details when they close in the second or third quarter of 2021," Wolf McLachlan said.

The 12-acre site purchased by Ascension Seton is located in the southwest section of the Wolf Lakes Village site at the intersection of I-35 and Hwy. 29.

According to a 2020 news release, the 40,000- to 60,000-square-foot medical office building will encompass a wide range of specialties and services, including orthopedics and full outpatient imaging services—X-Ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, mammography and bone density testing—with more specialties expected in the future.

Other planned amenities for Wolf Lakes Village include up to 2,400 residential units, restaurants, an outdoor amphitheater, parks, lakes, a sports court, an ice skating rink, a wedding chapel, an event center and more.

For comparison, Wolf Lakes will be nearly double the size of Wolf Ranch Town Center, which sits on 83 acres, Wolf McLachlan said.
