Replica Croatian Island Village in Texas Almost Complete

SUPETARAfter visiting the picturesque little seaside village of Supetar on the Croatian island of Brac almost a decade ago, American developer Jeff Blackard was so impressed with what he saw that he decided to build a replica village in a Texas suburb. Almost 8 years later his project is almost complete.

Work started on Adriatica Village in 2005 in McKinney, Texas, and a quarter is now complete, including single-family homes, businesses and shops such as a day spa, an Italian restaurant, a wine bistro, a real estate office, a florist and a Starbucks. Next year 54 family homes will be ready to complete the ‘American Supertar’.

“Imagine yourself walking the cobblestone streets in the quaint village of Supetar, nestled on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. From the architecture of the buildings and landmark Bell Tower to the secluded island chapel and unique shops and flats, Adriatica embodies the spirit and lifestyle of Supetar. Designed to be a true working village, Adriatica brings all facets of life together and enhances our living experience. Adriatica is a 45-acre (18.2-hectares) development situated at Virginia Parkway and Stonebridge Dr, in one of the fastest growing cities in America, McKinney, Texas.” is how Adriatica Village describes itself to its potential tenants. Around 25% of Adriatica’s luxury condos are now occupied.
