A three-pronged zoning request for a planned commercial development along the northeast corner of SH 121 and Business 121 received approval from Coppell City Council.

The request approved during the Nov. 14 meeting would allow for the development of Lovett Business Park, which will include buildings with various office, retail and warehouse uses on a property straddling both Coppell and Lewisville. A detention pond and walking trail are also planned for the property.

What you need to know

The proposed first phase of development will be the construction of a building for office and warehouse uses with an area of 257,600 square feet, according to city documents. The building will be constructed to allow for a single or multiple tenants, per city documents.

Another 14,100-square-foot two-story office building and an 18,200-square-foot two-story building for office and retail uses will bookend the detention pond with a fountain in the southern portion of the property. Development Services Administrator Matt Steer said no tenants had been identified for the additional office and retail buildings.

The city had not received a formal application to develop the location until the Lovett Business Park proposal, per city documents.

Dig deeper

The northern portion of the lot is bordered by a vacant light industrial building, which is partially located in Lewisville, according to city documents. A concrete batch plant borders the proposed office and warehouse building to the east along with additional vacant land, while more vacant land is located to the west.

Also included in the request is an amendment to the city’s 2030 Comprehensive Master Plan from a freeway commercial designation to an industrial special district classification. After the business park is developed, there will still be around 4.5 acres within the freeway special district originally designated in the 2030 comprehensive plan.
