Lantana's rolling topography, exceptional landscaping, Hill Country architecture and masterfully carried out development theming has re-created Austin's famous laid back Hill Country lifestyle. The monumental entrance is characterized by the iconic windmill, low stone walls and tree grids.
For Lantana, we created wide curving boulevards, meticulously landscaped greenbelts, and a wide variety of neighborhoods, price ranges and lot sizes. All major amenities were placed in close proximity to each neighborhood for easy accessibility. The Forstar Group has created and executed a unique community concept that distinguishes Lantana from other developments.
The wide variety of lots sizes, home builders and lifestyle opportunities all make Lantana a multi-generational community. Lantana provides an environment where grandparents, singles, and young and growing families can live in nearby neighborhoods and be surrounded by friends and family.
Lantana gives an immediate impression of a welcoming community with its stone and natural elements and architecture that is implemented in every community building, including the impressive Amenity Centers and other support buildings—all enhanced by Hill Country flowers, landscaping and stone walls.
Lantana is characterized by its beautiful streetscapes and front yards, well maintained common areas and amenities, and a Lantana Owners Association (LOA) staff that ensures your community keeps an immaculate and fresh exterior.

Education is Lantana’s highest priority. Lantana has joined with the visionary DISD leadership to provide the finest education available for Lantana students. Lantana is home to four highly prestigious schools. E.P. Rayzor Elementary, our first on-site school, opened in August 2002, Annie Webb Blanton Elementary School and Tom Harpool Middle School opened in 2008, Dorthy P. Adkins Elelmentary opened in August 2014. The on-site schools allow for the ideals of riding your bike and walking to school to become your children’s reality. In Lantana, the assurance of education and safety are our primary focus.
Lantana Education Foundation
Our greatest commitment to education is the Lantana Education/Charitable Foundation. This organization was created to fund projects such as advanced educational programs for Lantana students, as well as religious, scientific, literary or other charitable endeavors. The Foundation committed $1 million to the Denton Independent School District in 2000, enabling an elementary school to be built for Lantana students. One-half of one percent of the sale of all real estate sold or transferred within Lantana both current and future will go into this permanent foundation. To date almost $6 million has been granted through the Foundation to DISD. This unprecedented commitment is helping to build Lantana's reputation as one of the country's most "education-friendly" communities.
North Star Academy is an on-site Daycare and education center located in the heart of Lantana. North Star provides excellent care and early-childhood education for infants through kindergarteners as well as after-school daycare programs for school-aged children. They offer extended hours to accommodate the busy schedules of Lantana parents as well as Parent’s Night Out twice monthly and summer camps.
The Lantana Owners Association offers year round events for residents to enhance the sense of community and bring families together. From Music on the Green concerts in May to the Monster Mile on Halloween, the activities enhance the quality of life for our residents and unite the entire community.
