West Dallas community would include a centerpiece lagoon
An urban housing development in the West Dallas Works is planned around an artificial lagoon.
The project proposed by Megatel Homes on Singleton Boulevard would be the first of the popular lagoon communities planned in Dallas.
Developers use the water features to attract companies to large suburban housing developments.
Megatel Homes also announced this week plans for a new home project north of McKinney that will include a “Venice Lagoon”.
Now the developer is working on an apartment building project that will include five-story buildings around a lagoon.
“It will be a very impressive and unique project for the city of Dallas,” said Megatel founder Zach Ipour. “We have a front on Singleton and the location extends to the railroad.”
The proposed development will be adjacent to Megatel’s SoHo Square townhome community near Singleton and Borger Streets.
Megatel Homes launched SoHo Square in 2018 with plans for more than 200 units. Townhouses on the project sell for prices starting at $ 434,000. The community includes an amentity center with a resort-style pool, fitness center, and bowling alley.

With the proposed lagoon and four apartment buildings, the project will total more than 50 acres, making it one of the largest residential communities in West Dallas.
“It will be one of the most successful projects,” said Ipour.
He said Megatel hopes to start construction next year “as soon as we have completed our claim”.
The SoHo Square project is adjacent to the $ 400 million Trinity Green project, which so far includes two shared apartments, single-family homes and a 1-acre park.
Megatel Homes has just announced plans to develop its Venetian Lagoon in Collin County off US Highway 75 north of McKinney. The residential project with 1,200 apartments is planned around a lagoon and an equipment center.
The 2,000 acre Windsong Ranch community in Prosper opened its own water feature in the Crystal Lagoon last year.
A crystal lagoon is under construction in the Sapphire Bay development on Lake Ray Hubbard in Rowlett.
