Another New Development in Farmers Branch!

Progress continues at a fast pace in Farmers Branch! At the city council meeting this past Tuesday night, we approved the final plat for the "W-Lofts Addition," a new four-story multi-family residential development, which will consist of approximately 328 apartment units and a parking garage on a site just behind the Sheraton Hotel that is currently a bumpy, abandoned parking lot. You probably have driven through this parking lot on your way to the Galleria if you've ever used the McEwen shortcut.

This is a great addition to the other exciting developments currently underway, and beyond providing another outstanding housing opportunity, it will increase the revenue to the city through additional property taxes.

I want to stress this point: the more developments we have across town and the more new construction that occurs, the greater the property taxes the city receives. The more property taxes the city received, the more outstanding programs we can offer our citizens (like the Dallas Symphony in the Park, programs at the Senior Center, Youth Sports Leagues), and the more beautification projects and parks we can build. Also, we can explore a tax cut to our residents.

This current council and staff are maximizing our current opportunities for new development across the city. We can't stop this momentum! This is a big reason why it's important that you elect Tim O'Hare Mayor of Farmers Branch and Harold Froehlich to the city council. I am confident that Harold Froehlich share our vision for where our city is going, and Tim has been instrumental in bringing major developments to our city. A vote against Tim O’Hare is a vote to slow down our progress.
