Tuesday afternoon, the city, along with the developers held a groundbreaking for the newest development.
It will be named Residence Papillon, which is French for butterfly, and located in the 400 block of South Doctor M Roper Parkway, just passed Farm-to-Market Road 344.
Located on almost 35 acres of land, there will be almost 300 units and a little more than five acres of commercial space, centered at the road front of the property.
Officials anticipate the entire project to take about 10 years.

The development is intended to provide vast amounts of common areas and green space with larger, resort style common areas.
