Kent described where he is, and where he's going in converting Robertson Park into a development called Bayside.
Folks, I've been around some pretty fancy real estate development over the past 50 years. Nothing I have been around equals the grandeur of what Kent Donahue is planning for Bayside. It includes an 8 acre clear water pool, magnificent water fountain displays, very upscale housing, resort hotel, apartments, marina, upscale and casual restaurants, offices, and a spectacular bridge and entrance to the development. There are probably many things too numerous to mention.
If reality and dreams come together, and I think they will, Bayside will completely "re-brand" Rowlett. Rowlett will no longer be a backwater of Dallas area suburbs. Maybe a little different than Frisco and Plano, but not less noticeable. I have high hopes for Rowlett, and I think it just might be possible.
Kent Donahue is the perfect developer for this endeavor. He is not flashy or showy. He's down to earth and quietly confident. There's a huge difference between confident and "showy." Showy gets the headlines. Confidence gets the job done. I like the ones that know how to make something work.
