One of the primary entryways into Trophy Club could be about to undergo a growth spurt. Commercial and residential projects are being planned for Texas Highway 114 and Trophy Wood Drive, and this potential wave of activity could be underway soon.

For example, the town’s community development department is reviewing plans for a Holiday Inn. April Reiling, Trophy Club’s marketing manager, said town staffers believe the plans for the hotel will soon come before the Planning & Zoning Commission for consideration.

That’s not the only hotel and retail project in the works in that area. The Town Council recently approved a rezoning request for four lots at 114 and Trophy Wood between Hampton Inn and the Trophy Club Medical Center. That proposed development would feature a hotel, restaurants and retail.

Reiling said the hotel would be the first building constructed on the site and brokers are marketing the other lots to high-end restaurants. The planned development calls for a 40-foot buffer between the parking lot and the fence. Current fencing will also be replaced with a six-foot brick wall. The city is also requiring the developers to plant evergreen trees in the buffer area.

The council also recently gave its approval to a 5.5-acre rezoning request to change a property on Trophy Wood from hospital use to single family residential use. The developer of this proposed Hillside Point subdivision plans 35 lots inside a gated community with private streets. Tree mitigation will be required on the site and drainage will be addressed during platting, Reiling said.

On this project, the council made several changes to the earlier planned development document. The council is now calling for offset garages and certain requirements for variations in house plans. The average price per unit in the neighborhood is expected to be about $325,000.
