Waxahachie Development

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones makes a property play south of Dallas
The Jones family’s Blue Star Land has bought land in Waxahachie for a major mixed-use development.

The Jones family’s Blue Star Land has quietly purchased more than 120 acres on Interstate 35E in Waxahachie. Blue Star and Dallas developer Lincoln Property — the same team that built the Dallas Cowboys’ $1.5 billion Star in Frisco project — are planning to build on the high-traffic Ellis County corner.

Real estate broker Rex Glendenning, who handled the Blue Star property buys, said the land was purchased for “a mixed-use project consisting of urban residential, industrial and e-commerce, as well as some retail and commercial.

They're calling it a mixed used development, but it seems to mostly be a warehouse farm surrounded by a thin veil of retail and apartments. No doubt, it's definitely to take advantage of the I-35E widening/improvements.

None the less, it's still nice to see that Waxahachie could get some new-to-market retail and restaurants soon. With all of the growth taking place down there (and the growth that's expected), it was only a matter of time.

It looks like 2,800 acre Emory Lakes finally has the green light to proceed. It seems to have been reduced in scope slightly, now just 9K new homes instead of 10K.

Details about the project's scope are in the City Council's agenda packet:

More growth is coming to the region and Waxahachie. Is the city ready?
