A huge community in western Fort Worth is growing again.

The Walsh development, which sprawls across the border of Tarrant County into Parker County, is planned for as many as 4,000 homes. The community is a project of Dallas’ Republic Property Group.

Developers have just kicked off the newest neighborhood — a 138-home addition called The Village.

The new subdivision will have houses constructed by homebuilders David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, High Street Homes and Village Homes. Homes in the neighborhood will start in the mid-$400,000s.

“The Village at Walsh marks a significant milestone in our commitment to creating the ultimate living experience for families in North Texas,” Jim Henry, senior vice president of community operations at Republic Property Group, said in a statement. “We believe that the new expansion of Walsh, with its diverse range of product types from our esteemed homebuilders, will only add to the already thriving and growing Walsh community and solidify our position as the premier destination for families in the Fort Worth area.”

The Village is the second new neighborhood at Walsh this year.

In January, Republic Property Group started offering properties in a 224-home subdivision called Brook Hollow.

Walsh has grown to about 2,500 residents. The community is located near the intersection of Interstates 20 and 30, about 12 minutes west of downtown Fort Worth.

The Walsh development opened its doors in 2017 and has been one of the fastest-growing new home communities in North Texas. Ultimately the development value could top $5 billion.

Construction started on the project in 2015. The former 7,200-acre ranch land was owned by the F. Howard Walsh family since the 1930s and has been the headquarters of their cattle ranching operations.

Republic Properties is currently developing 1,600 acres of the ranch in partnership with the Walsh Cos.
