Parkway Villages TX History

Prior to the early 1990s, the land where Parkway Villages now sit was part of the Barnhart tract, a vacant lot that was previously a cattle ranch.

Sueba USA, in partnership with Hypo Bank of Munich, acquired the tract in 1993, originally intending to develop an office park on the 500+ acre land. Instead, the company opted to develop two residential communities Parkway Villages and Lakes of Parkway (a gated community) along with a commercial area at the corner of Briar Forest Drive and Eldridge Parkway.

Parkway Villages, Sueba USA’s first single-family home development, was built out in 2003.

Today, Parkway Villages is a popular community, thanks to its great schools, central location, and high accessibility.
