About Lucas Farms Planned Development District is an approximately 1,200-acre stretch of untouched landscape near the southern end of the city limits. Originally owned by Faithon P. Lucas, today, the Lucas Family desires to develop the historic property by creating a master planned community that will provide homes for residents of all ages and incomes, provide business opportunities, and promote a unique lifestyle.
October 2014 A 3 day Charette Workshop was held to brainstorm ideas to create new designs for the Development. The workshop was hosted by TBG Partners, and was a collaboration between the Lucas Family, Centurion America and the City of Mesquite. The 3 day event began by exploring the history of the Lucas Family and Lucas Farms, assessing the existing terrain, and identifying key features that should be preserved, as well as concerns that should be addressed. Verbal Ideas from all of the parties involved were brought together to create visual interpretations that could potentially lead to an appropriate design that will honor the Lucas Family legacy, complement the existing landscape, and create a unique community with a strong identity.
