Lennar buys more land for homes in Bear Creek Riverwalk in Euless

Also, a Houston-area logistics firm has purchased vacant land in the Railhead Industrial Park in north Fort Worth.

The national home builder Lennar Corp. has bought 13 more acres in the Bear Creek Riverwalk development in Euless.

Last year, Lennar bought 55 acres in Bear Creek Riverwalk, at the northwest corner of Airport Freeway and Texas 360. Lennar is building 200 homes there and calling the development Dominion at Bear Creek.

The company said it will build about 60 homes on the newly acquired land. Construction won’t begin until 2015, the company said.

“We are very pleased with the positive response to our Dominion at Bear Creek Development, and we are happy to expand our commitment to this community,” Greg Urech, Lennar’s vice president of land and acquisitions, said in a statement.

Lennar bought the land from Stratford Land, which started Bear Creek Riverwalk, a residential and commercial development, in 2011 when it bought 194 acres from a California group that had owned the land since 1993. Stratford said it will begin the commercial development when more homes are built.

About 70 acres are set aside for commercial development of shops and restaurants. When completed, Riverwalk will have about 480 single-family homes, 250 town homes and about 500 apartments.

Andrew Prine of Stratford Group and Tim Coltart of Realty Capital Management brokered the latest deal.

Lennar is based in Miami.
