Hundreds of homes are on the way in an urban-style Mesquite community.
Centurion American Development Group is building the Iron Horse Village project near Military Parkway and Interstate 635.
Centurion American has been working on the 52-acre project for more than two years on land near the Mesquite Championship Rodeo arena, which Centurion American owns.
The mixed-use home community will have 336 houses built by D.R. Horton, Gehan Homes and Mattamy Homes. There also will be a retail and restaurant center and 4.5 acres of green space.
Plans call for 30 residential villas, 51 bungalows, 57 urban row houses and 198 townhouses. Homes will start in the $250,000s and range from over 1,400 square feet to almost 2,300 square feet.
Bush Architects designed the community.
Along with Iron Horse Village, Centurion American is spending more than $2 million to redo the rodeo arena, which is home to the Mesquite Championship Rodeo and a new soccer team, the Mesquite Outlaws. The current building dates to 1985, but the rodeo goes back to the 1940s.
Centurion American is a Farmers Branch-based developer and one of North Texas’ largest residential land developers.
