Located just west of Pheasant Run, this development is named for the pioneer Bacon Family that ran cattle on this land from around 1930. Their old family mansion is still located on Broadway near Avenue Q.
There are about 540 acres in the project. When completed, it will contain about 1,000 single family homes, a number of
multi-family dwellings, a city park, and numerous businesses. Lubbock National Bank, American State Bank, City Bank and Lone Star Bank have all bought land here and will be building branches on 82nd Street or Milwaukee in the future. Cascada Office Park is being developed by Scott Collier with Teinert Construction; many prestigious medical offices are located there, or under construction, and it is selling rapidly. Physical Therapy Today and O'Reillys Auto Parts are just west of Cascada. Walgreens has opened a new store on the north east corner of 82nd and Milwaukee and Comet Cleaners and the Sleep Shop have purchased land north of Walgreens on Milwaukee. Milwaukee opened in the spring of 2006 and ties the entire western part of Lubbock together with a north-south corridor. This project was an innovative concept spearheaded by former Councilman Tom Martin in which the City of Lubbock got ahead of the curve and built this street in advance of the need. Most people familiar with this area feel that Milwaukee will immediately become the route of choice for north-south access.
These first two phases of this development contain 141 lots. Most have been purchased by local builders but a few do remain available for purchase. Many homes have been completed and are occupied and several more are under construction. The third phase, lying just west of the first phase, is complete, along with a luxury large lot area called the "Villas at Bacon Crest". This is one of the most sought after areas of Lubbock because of the Frenship School District and it's proximity to 82nd street, the Marsha Sharp Freeway, and Loop 289.
