Davis Boulevard development gets Southlake officials' approval

A new development is coming to Davis Boulevard near Union Church Road.

Southlake City Council has approved a zoning change and site plan for a development that includes an office showroom with auto sales. The plan includes construction of five new one-story buildings and use of one existing building, according to the site plan. The approximately six-acre tract can be found at 880-950 Davis Blvd., Southlake.

The development, named The WheelHouse, will be used for automobile and motorcycle sales and service as well as auto storage.

The existing building on the north side of the property will be converted into garage and storage space for the maintenance of personal vehicles and for a personal hobby shop, Ken Baker, Southlake senior director of planning and development, said in an email. Its facade will be updated as part of renovations.

On the west side of the proposed development, there is a residential neighborhood, but an open lot and an existing fence will separate the two areas, according to the site plan. A presentation indicates outside automobile and motorcycle sales or service will not be a permitted use of the space.

The site plan and zoning change was approved with a 6-0 vote. Council Member John Huffman recused himself from discussions and the vote because he owns a piece of property next to the proposed development.

“Although the changes have no effect on his property, he chose to recuse himself out of an abundance of caution,” Pilar Schank, deputy director of public relations, said in an email.
