A new 128-unit multifamily development being planned for the southeast corner of Rockhill Road and North Brook Street in McKinney will move ahead after City Council approved a Planned Development District ordinance June 16.

Legacy Builders McKinney will construct the development on 13.207 acres, and it will include single units and duplex units in a gated residential community, according to meeting documents.

The zoning ties down the plan to inhibit the developer from creating an apartment-type community.

“The multifamily is limited to what would look like and feel more like duplexes and single-family structures,” Director of Planning Jennifer Arnold said.

Legacy Builders has provided a reduction in the number of units it could develop in order to ease overall traffic on Rockhill Road when the project is built out, according to meeting documents.

In exchange for the Planned Development District zoning, Legacy Builders plans to develop the project beyond the minimum amount of required amenities. The development will include a community pool, jacuzzi, a child’s play area, a dog park, a bocce ball court and a fitness center.

In addition, more than half of the units will have attached, private garages.

The development was approved 4-3, with council members Rainey Rogers, Charlie Philips and Frederick Frazier voting against it.
