Rowlett is the place to be!

This city is on the brinks of a great future. With being centrally located in DFW, and on the lake, a commercial development boom is about to occur in this great city. Bayside, a $1 billion property, is currently being constructed. Rowlett will be home to the first crystal lagoon in the State of Texas which will span nearly eight acres including two acres of beach frontage. There is also a planned one acre show fountain which is 300' long with 250 water nozzles and two video mist screens. Located in the development will be a trolley system, marina, shows and concerts, convention center, luxury hotel resort, two condo towers, and luxury apartments. This development would be called "Bayside". Bayside is located in the southernmost portion in the City of Rowlett surrounded by Lake Ray Hubbard. The property, once known as "Elgin B. Robertson Park" was acquired from the City of Dallas in late 2015 when the City of Rowlett and Donahue Development began planning this luxury resort known as "Bayside". Construction on this project is in progress and is expected to be completed in 2023. What once was a bedroom community, is now a community set for success in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Also in Rowlett, there is a variety of housing options for either families, couples, singles, or seniors. For transportation in Rowlett, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is located in Downtown Rowlett. Also main roadways are Interstate 30, President George Bush Turnpike, as well as State Highway 66 (Lakeview Pkwy). Rowlett is the place to be!
