Lewisville City Council unanimously approved changes to the development of Fronterra, which is within the Northern Gate Plan area.

The changes came after groundwater contaminants were found on-site from an off-site source, planning director Richard Luedke said at a council meeting on Dec. 20.

The developer, according to a city memo, has changed several things with the site due to the contaminants, including the following.

  • Townhouses south of Moccasin Trail are now expected to be rented due to environmental contaminants that create the need for vapor barriers and mitigation measures as required by the Environmental Impact Statement.
  • Multi-family development along I-35E has evolved from a garage and hotel parking structure to above-ground and hidden multi-family parking with no hotel planned.
  • The total number of multi-family units increased from 773 to 794 units.
  • Commercial development has been reduced from 40,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet.

The developer also changed the name to Lakeside Crossing due to the location’s proximity to the lake.

The development will still consist of three sub-districts, including townhouses, city living and mixed-use, according to the city’s memo. There will be 201 townhouse units, multi-family units and commercial space on the ground floor along I-35E. Paths connect the property’s open spaces with surrounding neighborhoods.

“This creates a very exciting mixed-use pedestrian zone,” Luedke said. “It really becomes a place where people can live, work and play. “

The board approved the original plan in April, but re-approval was required due to the changes.
