The Village at Carillon Parc receives approval at first reading in Southlake

The Village at Carillon Parc went before the Southlake City Council for a first reading on June 5.

The Village at Carillon Parc went before the Southlake City Council for a first reading on June 5.

At the June 5 Southlake City Council meeting, council members approved a zoning change and development plan for The Village at Carillon Parc.

The development will take place on 42.51 acres and is part of the Carillon residential community that sits on 285 acres of land between North White Chapel Boulevard and Carroll Avenue on SH 114. The Planning and Zoning Commission approved its recommendations for the project unanimously in May.

At the meeting, former Southlake mayor and The Village at Carillon Parc developer John Terrell shared the vision for the development, which would include components such as chef-driven restaurants, incubator restaurants, specialty retail, residential lofts, and boutique and unique hotels. The development would also support health and wellness, office and civic components, including the new performing hall and location for the Southlake Library.

"We’re looking to become kind of a gathering place for the community, a place that allows you to spend more than just a couple of hours, to spend the entire day," Principal Developer Laird Fairchild said. "It has something for everyone. ... We hope to attract many of the festivals and events that occur throughout the year in and around Southlake."

Terrell told Community Impact Newspaper there's a number of ways in which this project is different than iterations brought to the council previously. The two primary differences are the increased acreage of parkland that will be saved and used and the inward-facing development concept, which will limit vehicular access so that the area will be entirely open and walkable.

At the meeting, Terrell said The Village at Carillon Parc would be divided into eight primary districts: an office district, the Boulevard, the Piazza, the Library, the Parc, the Terrace, the Grand Hotel and a residential district. Together, these districts would create an intimate environment with several senses of places, Fairchild said.

"It's kind of like a throwback to the old days of shopping," he said. "It's the small, quaint town where you get to know the proprietors and you get to feel like you're back in the day going into the shops, and people greet you as you walk in. That's what we're really trying to focus on attracting to the development."

He said there are several tenants lined up to come to Carillon Parc, including a chef from Las Vegas who plans to open two unique restaurant concepts for Carillon Parc. There will also be a small, boutique hotel and a second, larger hotel, temporarily called the Grand Hotel. Fairchild said he and his partners are also looking to attract dine-in movie operators.

"It's an emerging concept of merging entertainment and experiences together," he said. "We're talking to a lot of natural tenants that are engaged in that kind of thing as well."

Council member Randy Williamson commented on the project's dramatic architecture in the renderings, and asked how much of that would be brought into reality.

Terrell replied that that architects have noted some minor changes that would probably have to occur within the project, but the scope of the project would be satisfactory.

"I will say that you’ll be pleased at the end of the day, that the reality is going to look better than what you see in the picture," Terrell said.

Terrell noted that before a specific building within the project is constructed it would have to come before council to be approved for its specific use, and as those plans are brought forward more details regarding those buildings would come with them.

The project was approved unanimously, with council member Chad Patton recusing himself from the discussion. Carillon Parc's development will go before the Southlake City Council for a second reading June 19.
