CallisonRTKL designs a European-inspired village in rural Texas.
Westlake Vallecito will represent the true spirit of an open-air European village, envisioned in a rural Texan valley. This $500 million Spanish-inspired mixed-use development will be the first of its kind in the small town of Westlake and become a unique destination north of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. A vibrant village covering 85 acres will provide a pedestrian-friendly experience where visitors can stroll the quaint streets to retail shops and explore courtyards filled with outdoor markets. The scenery is accented by a pond branching into channels throughout the development. Other attractions include a 3,000-seat amphitheater, chapel, signature bell tower, town hall, government buildings, boutique hotel, villa style homes, townhomes and more.
