SouthStar Communities' WoodCreek named to list of top masterplans


The list of the “Top 50 Master Planned communities in the Unites States” for 2019 is out, and SouthStar Communities’ WoodCreek in Dallas has made its first—but certainly not its last—appearance. This popular community, located in the fast-growing city of Fate, just up the highway from downtown Dallas, ranks at No. 41 after a year of exceptionally strong sales under the SouthStar Communities umbrella. It was the only community in the Dallas area to make the prestigious list, which is compiled every year by John Burns Real Estate Consulting.

Texas had the second-highest share of top masterplans in 2019 at 27%, according to the report, which is based on sales, design, landscaping, amenities and land planning; The only other North Texas community named was in Fort Worth. Several Austin and Houston communities also made the list.

Fate is a straight shot to downtown Dallas via I-30 but ensconced in a desirable, family-friendly setting with highly rated schools and a welcoming atmosphere. Owners enjoy abundant local shopping, dining, entertainment, and recreation at Lake Ray Hubbard and The Harbor at Rockwall Town Center.

WoodCreek offers an array of single-family homes from some of the most notable builders in the state and the nation, including Lennar, D.R. Horton, Pulte Homes, Bloomfield Homes, and Meritage Homes, as well as two amenity centers, a swim center with splash park and tide pool, a fully-outfitted fitness center, and a playground. There are also miles of nature trails and parks, including a dog park, an on-site elementary school, and a year-round schedule of events, activities, and social clubs.
