This project was Woodbine’s first venture into large master-planned communities. The concept grew from an early site sale of Hunt-owned land to Motorola, then was transformed into a 425-acre business park. With growing interest in the area, Woodbine master-planned the 725-acre multiuse community to the north of the business park and launched marketing of sites in Fossil Creek in 1987 with the opening of The Golf Club at Fossil Creek. Woodbine also transformed a 1937 stone barn into the community’s marketing and information center.
Fossil Creek has fueled the explosive growth of north Fort Worth. Its business park is home to Bank of America, Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Haggar Clothing Company, Precision Rx, Courtyard by Marriott, Fairfield Inn by Marriott, State Farm, Allstate and Summit National Bank.
Residents of neighborhoods in Fossil Creek North enjoy Stoneglen Lane, a 2.5-mile hike and bike trail; Stoneglen Park; and a fishing pier on 20-acre Fossil Lake.
Lesson Learned - One big deal can launch an entire community.
