Through a long-standing public-private partnership with the City of Lewisville along with the direction and coordination of countless design professionals and home builders, the Bright family has transformed what once was the family farm into a majestic, walkable and inviting community.

Most notably, the 324-acre, mixed-use development in the northern portion/section of Castle Hills on the Sam Rayburn Tollway/121 Corridor, The Realm at Castle Hills. The Realm consists of Class A office, retail and multi-family and is scheduled to deliver its first phase in fall 2019.
