What has been your favorite project to work on during your career?
The Marketplace at Highland Village, an 80-acre mixed-use project with retail, and office. The project was complex and required very political zoning approval, the hearing started at 8 p.m. and end at 4 a.m. The project required negotiations with several local and federal agencies, Upper Trinity Regional Water District, Federal404 permits with wetland mitigation, detention, and negotiations between the City of Highland Village and City of Flower Mound. With all the possible pitfalls it was a highly successful and profitable project for Dunaway.
