TSW was retained by Forestar Real Estate Group to conduct a visioning charrette and develop a master plan and architectural direction for the Burt Creek community of approximately 1,000 acres, including a long-term vision for Southern Catholic College as its focal point.

The visioning charrette included an image preference survey to determine the character of different plan components, as well as break-out sessions, concept reviews, and presentations. The resulting conceptual plan is organized around an educational/retail node with surrounding residential neighborhoods, villages, and conservation areas.

The Southern Catholic College node features a traditional campus with academic quadrangles, sports fields, administration buildings, and student dormitories. Adjacent to the campus area, is The Village, which will serve the campus and surrounding neighborhoods with retail, office, civic, and higher density residential. The surrounding residential focused neighborhoods offer a variety of single-family lot types, townhomes, independent living, community farming/gardening areas, trails, and parks.
