TOWN OF NORTHLAKE
WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR
Mayor David Rettig
Town of Northlake
It is my privilege to welcome you to Northlake, North Texas’s fastest growing small town due to our amazing quality of life. Here you can still get to the city without too much trouble and enjoy the countryside at the same time. Our neighborhoods are winning awards for their amenities and design and are being noticed by new movers from around DFW, Texas and the country.
We want you to feel welcome and secure knowing we have a safe, economical and friendly town that is focused on delivering great value and quality of life for you, our residents.
Northlake is located 17 miles west of DFW International Airport and three miles north of Alliance Airport between the cities of Fort Worth and Denton along IH 35W.
In the heart of North Texas, one of the fastest-growing regions in the country, sits the flourishing Town of Northlake. Against the idyllic backdrop of wide-open spaces, oak trees and cows is a dynamic Texas Town with its beautifully appointed master-planned communities, 1-to-5-acre homesites, large-acre rural living, highly rated schools, and booming commercial and industrial developments.
Northlake, located on prime real estate along the I-35W corridor between Denton and Fort Worth, is just minutes from Dallas, the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Alliance Airport, a world-class industrial airport boasting one of the strongest foreign-trade zones in the country. Northlake is committed to attracting high quality commercial and industrial development through targeted incentive programs in addition to maintaining a low tax rate which benefits all businesses.
With its low taxes and exceptional quality of life, Northlake attracts new residents to its wide variety of living environments from luxury apartments to multi-acre ranches and estate homes. To keep up with the demand, some of the region’s largest master-planned communities have been developed in Northlake: Harvest, Canyon Falls, Pecan Square, and The Ridge at Northlake. These developments will add nearly 10,000 homes to the market over this decade. Yet approximately 75% of Northlake’s ultimate land area remains undeveloped with plans to preserve half the land area as open space, 1+ acre lots and multi-acre ranches. Among Northlake’s open spaces is the 193-acre Northwest ISD Outdoor Learning Center.
Commercial development is rapidly expanding to serve the growing residential population of the Town and surrounding region. Each of Northlake’s master-planned communities include a commercial component to serve the needs of their residents as well as the surrounding community. Northlake Commons is a commercial component of the Harvest master-planned development on FM 407. It is centered around a square and features a variety of retail and services including restaurants, shops, salon and fitness services, medical and veterinary offerings, and municipal offices. The initial commercial development within the Town started near the intersection of I-35W and State Highway 114 adjacent to the Texas Motor Speedway. Prime commercial sites are still available along these high traffic, high growth highway corridors.
Northlake benefits from a prosperous and thriving industrial base. The Town’s Comprehensive Plan identifies three distinct areas for industrial and business park development. Northlake boasts nearly 5 million square feet of industrial warehouse space with another 7 million under development, with more than 30 million square feet ultimately planned. Some of the corporations that call Northlake home are Farmer Brothers, Schluter Systems, Stanley Black and Decker, Crown Lift Trucks, 3M, Clorox, Incora, Walgreen’s Microfill Center and Oldcastle Infrastructure.
