"As we add Tapestry to our portfolio of projects, we are excited to continue to offer lot positions to incredible builder teams which we have worked with for years," said Craig Martin, CEO and founding partner for Tellus Group. "There is a lot of growth happening in Forney. Tapestry will be perfectly positioned as a truly great family community with easy access to the major employment hubs in the greater Dallas area."

The $1.5 billion dollar master-planned community will be the first signature Tellus Group community on the east side of the Metroplex. While designs for the community are in their early stages, current plans suggest multiple lakes and fishing piers, extensive hike and bike trail systems, small and large neighborhood parks, dynamic lifestyle amenity centers and significant preserved open spaces.

"Tapestry will be a community for families to enjoy for generations," said David Blom, President and COO. "This ‘lifelong’ community will be where young families and couples can purchase their first home, then as their family grows, build their forever home. At Tellus, we pride ourselves on developing residential communities of the highest quality and using thoughtful land planning that ‘wow’ families and create close-knit neighborhoods with a true sense of community. We want anyone living in a Tellus Community to know they live somewhere very special, and their lives will be richer for it."

The initial property release is planned for the Summer of 2024 and will include an array of homesites ranging from 40- to 70-foot lots with homes from some of the area’s top builders. Home prices are expected to start in the high $200s for townhomes and low $300s for single family homes.
