McKinney Planning and Zoning Commission approves site plan for new Wheelhouse restaurant


The McKinney Planning and Zoning Commission approved a site plan Tuesday night for Wheelhouse, a new restaurant located at the southwest corner of US 380 and Hardin Boulevard.

The nearly 6,000-square-foot restaurant will include four overhead doors between the main dining area and an outdoor patio, which will face US 380.

“We believe the north elevation of the restaurant (facing [US] 380) should be the most engaging of the elevations,” according to a letter of intent submitted to the city of McKinney. “… In order to create the connection between interior and exterior—a concept paramount to the Wheelhouse brand—we have included [four]glass overhead doors.”

A facade plan for the restaurant was approved by planning and zoning during an April 24 meeting.

“Our vision for the design is to create an engaging and dynamic environment that is cool, interesting and thought-provoking,” according to a letter of intent submitted by architecture firm Hoefer Wysocki to the city prior to the facade plan approval.

The goal of the McKinney Wheelhouse location is to mimic the style of the original Dallas Wheelhouse location, which offers a variety of indoor and outdoor seating, according to the letter of intent.

The Dallas Wheelhouse, 1617 Hi Line Drive, Ste. 390, Dallas, serves brunch, lunch and dinner along with cocktails, beer and wine. Menu items at the Dallas location include avocado toast, fried green tomato Benedict, tacos, fish and chips, green chile pork grilled salmon and more.
