Ballantyne is a 2,000+ acre mixed-use project, nationally recognized as one of the most successful, well-conceived and executed master planned communities in the country. ESP has been involved in Ballantyne since the beginning in every aspect of this development in one way or another. All of the services that ESP provides – from planning to civil engineering, geotechnical engineering and land surveying, have contributed to the development of Ballantyne. We are proud to be associated with the success of this amazing community.
With the established original principles of live, work, play, stay as the focus, Ballantyne is home to multiple global, national and local headquarters operations, four hotel properties including a Starwood Luxury Collection hotel, a top ranked golf course associated with the nationally prominent Dana Rader Golf School, a huge array of restaurant and retail options, parks, schools and, true to its original intent, a wide variety of housing choices available to all income levels.
The original approved master plan provided for the following:
- 5,000,000 square feet of office
- 4,600 residential units
- 500,000 square feet of retail
- 1,000 hotel rooms
- Two public school sites
- Bike paths, sidewalks and parks
- Environmentally supportive open storm detention areas
Key infrastructure development for roads, water, sewer, power, landscaping, sidewalks and more all began in the early to mid-1990’s culminating with the construction of the first houses and office buildings in 1996.
