New aerial video footage shows that construction has been moving forward at breakneck speed following the long-delayed groundbreaking for The River Walk at Central Park in August 2013. The 158-acre mixed use development in Flower Mound, Texas first received zoning ordinance approval in 2008, but the economic crash drove the original developer into foreclosure, and the project came to a halt until Centurion American Development Group took over late last summer. Six months later, stunning aerial video proves the rapid progress that has been made on the development, which will encompass commercial, medical, retail, dining, civic and residential uses.
Located five miles north of DFW Airport and bordered by three major highways, The River Walk at Central Park is intended to establish a vibrant downtown area for Flower Mound, with nearly 50 acres of parks and open spaces in or adjacent to the property, and will include an amphitheater, public art, and family entertainment areas. The focal feature of the development will be the river walk amenity, including enhanced landscaping, speakers along the pedestrian path, naturalistic rock edges, and two waterfalls with LED lights. G&A Consultants is providing the land surveying and civil design services.
Using a radio-controlled quadcopter with gimbal mounted camera, GlobalVideoHQ captured stunning HD aerial video of the construction in progress, including the installation of approximately 6,000 feet of vertical walls to create the river channel. For land planners and development companies, using UAVs to document construction is a far more cost effective solution than traditional airplane or helicopter video and can help ensure that work is progressing according to plan. The soaring camera shots of the expansive River Walk development also provide local residents with a better understanding of how villas, restaurants, senior living and medical facilities, and other structures will take shape along the landscape. The breathtaking bird’s eye footage is nothing short of remarkable.
