The first steps toward a new retail development in McKinney are underway.
During a June 4 McKinney City Council meeting, council members approved rezoning a 2-acre parcel of land on the northeast corner of US 380 and Custer Road west of Walnut Grove Road, where Brackeen Travel Sales and Auto Fleet Remarketing facilities are located.
According to applicant Kevin MacIntosh, existing structures will be demolished, and the new development, referred to as Shops at Walnut Grove Road in city presentations, will include a Valvoline, Jason’s Deli and various other retail stores in newly constructed strip centers.
A traffic signal will also be installed at the intersection of Walnut Grove Road and US 380 as part the first phase of this project.
Once Phase 1 is complete, Phase 2 will include building out property east of the newly rezoned plat.
