Charles Hicks Buys 3.85 Acres on Forest Lane From Unity Church of Dallas Campus For 18-Home Planned Development

Eliza Solender and Gary Scott

Unity Church of Dallas has sold almost 4 acres of its 11 acre campus on Forest Lane to Charles Hicks. Hicks plans to build 18 custom homes on the site, called 6600 Forest Estates. This is huge news because unless you plan a teardown, this area of North Dallas is almost completely built out. Until now …

This just in from Solender/Hall Real Estate Brokerage:

Representing the Unity Church of Dallas, Eliza Solender and Gary Scott of Solender/Hall announced that they have completed the sale of a 3.8537-acre site on Forest Lane to CADG Forest Lane 18, LLC, under a contract with Charles Hicks of Hicks III Investments. Unity Church of Dallas plans to stay at its current location at 6525 Forest Lane, but it decided to sell part of its 11-acre site in order to upgrade its property.

Eliza Solender of Solender Hall said, “This sale was a very thoughtful process that we worked on with the church for more than four years. We believe the church and the new residential development will be great neighbors.”

The buyer had to have the property rezoned for planned development, which it did. According to Charles Hicks, who lives in the neighborhood, the property will be developed into 18 custom home sites in a gated community called 6600 Forest Estates. Hicks said, “This development will provide a new housing community to an area where new homes can be built only by acquiring and removing older homes.” Hicks’ company has pre-sold all the lots to a custom homebuilder.

No word on who the builder is, but we will find out and report back!
