The McKinney Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously voted Jan. 14 to rezone 12.64 acres that would allow a multifamily housing development to be built at 3521 James M. Pitts Drive, McKinney, near Scott Johnson Middle School.

The property is currently zoned for agriculture and would be rezoned for planned development to allow for apartments.

The rezoning would allow for a 24-unit per acre development with a maximum height of three stories, said Bob Roeder, speaking on behalf of the property owner and the applicant, the NRP Group.

“You’re seeing a very high-quality developer for this project,” Roeder said.

Roeder noted the project plan would modify the city’s standards for enclosed parking and would allow for more carports instead.

With Commissioner Christopher Haeckler abstaining, the commissioners unanimously approved the rezoning. The project will be presented to McKinney City Council at its Feb. 4 meeting.
