A collaborative effort will result in six new single-story medical office buildings and helped provide initial approval for seven new homes at the intersection of SH 114 and Shady Lane in Southlake.

Curtis Young, representing the Next Century Health Care Plaza, called the development a cooperative effort between Next Century for the medical office buildings and Hat Creek Development for the residential homes at the Dec. 3 Southlake City Council meeting.

Connecting the two developments is Shady Lane, which will provide access easement into the properties, with the office buildings to the south and the homes to the north.

With the approval, Shady will be built with 19 feet of paved road to help preserve trees. The public and emergency vehicles alike will have access to the street.

The health care plaza will have 351 parking spaces for the six buildings, which will total 50,000 square feet. A pond will be developed for drainage purposes and to add to the landscaping of the development, Young said.


He said it was not guaranteed that all the tenants would be medical, but most of them would be.

The residential development, called The Canopy, passed its first test with City Council. The neighborhood would consist of seven residential lots on 8.22 acres. Most of the lots would exceed 43,500 feet. The entrance into the neighborhood would feature the canopy trees overhanging the entrance and framed by a pond on either side of the entrance road, developer Kosse Maykus said.

The Southlake City Council approved the first reading for the residential development, and it will return for council consideration next month.

"We’ve seen some poor applications for this piece of property, and this is probably the best we’ve seen," Mayor Pro Tem Shawn McCaskill said. "Sticking with the low-density residential is appropriate, and I’m glad we’re finally there after many years of seeing noncompliant requests."
