Jones|Carter partnered with Hillwood Development to provide civil engineering services for the Harvest Development. Harvest is a 1,170-acre master planned community in Denton County within the cities of Northlake and Argyle. The Harvest development keeps with its strong agrarian roots and boasts a community farm, greenbelts, and parks ringed with trails. The development also boasts resort-style amenities, a 15-acre lake, family event spaces, and ball fields.
The J|C team actively engages with all 13 governmental entities involved in the Harvest development. The team negotiated agreements between several of the governmental entities and the towns of Northlake and Argyle. The J|C team helped to create two fresh water supply districts, negotiated a multi-city deal for trunk sanitary sewer service with the Trinity River Authority, and created a tri-party agreement with Upper Trinity Regional Water District, Argyle Water Supply Corporation, and the city of Northlake to provide water supply to the development.
Additionally, J|C assisted Denton County in abandoning old rights-of-way, allowing the development of new roadways. After multiple agreements were in place, J|C developed a plan to accommodate design and construction for the Harvest Development, incorporating the requirements of each agreement. J|C, alongside Hillwood, successfully navigated obstacles that typically stall projects for years, and completed the first two phases of the development.
J|C serves as the district, design, and construction engineer for the development. The J|C team has both designed and overseen projects, including water distribution and supply facilities, sanitary sewer collection facilities, drainage facilities (including storm sewer, detention, and lakes), paving facilities, walls, trails, and street lights.
Harvest was the recipient of the Urban Land Institute North Texas 2015 Innovation Award. Harvest is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
