The long-awaited development known as Carillon Parc is slated to break ground late in the first quarter of 2022, after an 18-month delay for the mixed-use project.

The 42.5-acre, European-style development located at the northeast corner of Hwy. 114 and White Chapel Boulevard has been revised to include more single-family residential units, reducing the number of lofts planned. The amended development will also include more green and open park space—from a previously approved 10.2 acres to more than 12 acres, according to John Terrell, a former Southlake mayor and one of Carillon Parc's developers.

A portion of the park will be dedicated to the city, as well, and is projected to add around $10 million in value to Southlake’s parks.

Carillon Parc will still include three mixed-use buildings, ranging from four stories to eight stories; two single-story restaurant sites; three two-story office buildings; and a three-story library and entertainment building.

Cynthia Pfledderer, city librarian for Southlake, said the city is conducting a community survey to obtain feedback on what citizens would like to see from their library for the future. Once the survey results are available, those will be shared with City Council.

"We look forward to having that conversation later this fall," she said.

There will also be a hotel inside the development. However, Terrell said the council will have the option to change the planned hotel out for another office building, depending on market demands.

“With the Delta open and the Westin coming, we've got to just make sure that there is a market for another hotel in Southlake,” he said.

Terrell attributed Carillon Parc's delay mostly to the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally planned to begin construction in the spring of 2020, the downturn in the retail and dining business forced the project to be placed on hold due to a lack of interest from potential tenants. Now, he said, that has changed.

“There's quite a bit of interest in coming back into Carillon Parc,” Terrell told Community Impact Newspaper. “We're thrilled that we can be bringing this project back to the city.”

Carillon Parc was first approved in June 2018 and has since been revised twice, with the most recent proposed amendments being discussed. The development is estimated to cost near $290 million.

Residents in the area are also looking forward to the project picking back up, said Terrell.

“We held a meeting [with Carillon residents] and we had zero opposition,” he said. “In fact, what we had was relief and excitement that the plan was kind of back on the table. And they were very excited that we actually took it off the market ... so that was a big indicator to the neighborhood. It was a relief [to them] that we weren't just going to sell the property and wait for some other developer to come up with another plan.”

Terrell said the developers are looking to present updated site plans to a joint meeting of Southlake's Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council in October for final approval.
