Jefferson Rockhill, a new 354-unit apartment complex is under construction in McKinney off of Rockhill Road between Wilson Creek Parkway and Graves Street.


The 16-acre development will feature amenities such as a resort-style pool, putting green and seating area, enclosed dog park, beer garden, fitness center, yoga studio, coffee bar, concierge service and more, according to the project's website. A trail system will also connect the community to the public Towne Lake Recreation Area and community center.

Inside, units will include hardwood-style flooring, kitchens with islands, 10-foot ceilings and full-sized washers and dryers in all units. On the outside of the building there will be balconies and patios with ground-floor private yards.

The complex, located at 1703 Rockhill Road, is expected to open in summer 2021.

This project comes from JPI, a national multifamily developer, builder and investment manager.

“McKinney is in the heart of the growing DFW economic boom, and Jefferson Rockhill will put residents just a short drive away from the top employment centers in McKinney, Allen, Plano, Frisco and Richardson, while still offering convenient access to other parts of the Metroplex,” JPI’s senior vice president and Central Region development partner, Miller Sylvan, said in a press release.


For the Jefferson Rockhill project, JPI said it will retain partnerships with many of the top consultants within the multifamily industry, including Womack + Hampton, Kimley-Horn, RTM Engineering Consultants, Viewtech, Inc., and Keaton Interiors.



JPI is also partnering with First United Bank, who is providing financing for the project.
