Architect predicts building boom for $1.3bn home in suburban Dallas
Architect Joe Stearns is predicting a $1bn home for a suburban Dallas neighborhood that he has long dreamed of.
Stearns, who is overseeing construction on the $4.5bn house, said he has a few weeks left to raise money to build the house, which is being built on about 30 acres of land that sits on the outskirts of downtown Dallas.
Stears is in the process of building a home on a parcel that sits near a train station and nearby parking lot, he said.
“The city of Dallas is a great place to start.””
He said he will have to pay for the construction of the house himself, which will cost about $1m. “

Stearnes said he wants the project to be a “mini-me” so the community has something to feel proud of.
The house is a project that has been on Stears’ bucket list for some time, he added.
Stokes was born in Dallas in 1961 and has lived in the Dallas area for more than 40 years.
He and his wife, Mary, have four children and two grandchildren.
The family owns a home in Dallas, which Stearys described as his dream home.
The project is a part of the larger $8.5 billion plan to transform and modernize the city.
Stokes said it will include the construction and renovation of apartments, restaurants and shops.
The Stokes family also owns several other properties in the city, including a vacant, 2,000-square-foot lot on the north side of the city that is being turned into apartments.
Stakes said the home will have a large courtyard and will have open access to the rest of the neighborhood, as well as to the river.
“The river is very important to me,” he said of the riverfront area.
“We are moving toward a city that will be more urban than suburban, with an emphasis on walking, biking, and transit,” he added, citing plans to add sidewalks and more parking along the riverbank.
The property will include a kitchen and living room that will feature a wood-burning fireplace, he promised.
Stays plans to expand the community, with plans for the home to include about 200 apartments and a public plaza with restaurants and other services.
Stares plans to work with the city to develop a master plan that includes an overview of the site, the city’s plan for the area, and how the property will be used.
Starks said he expects to get approval from the city by mid-January to begin construction.
