A new mixed-use development in McKinney called Hub 121 is expected to start seeing restaurants open in spring 2021.

Hub 121, located near the northwest corner of Alma Road and SH 121, is expected to be home to six or seven restaurants, a coworking space, a music pavilion, a brewery, an apartment complex and more.

While the coronavirus has stalled a few plans that were proposed in the space, such as a new hotel, developer Shane Jordan with Jordan Realty Advisors said the buildings fronting Alma will be completed and open in late November or early December.

The rest of the project, including the restaurants, should be open in late March or early April, he said.

The development will offer a 6,500-square-foot music pavilion, which will include a performance stage and a turf field with a concession stand. Many of the restaurants at Hub 121 will have rooftop patios overlooking the pavilion, Jordan said.


Guests will be able to visit Cedar Creek Brewery; Black Rock Coffee; a wine bar; and the Elwood, a bar featuring more than 40 beers, hand-crafted cocktails and small plates.

“We were looking at non-chain, different restaurants that were maybe a little more chef-driven or a little more interesting rather than going down Custer and seeing that same restaurant a couple miles down that direction,” Jordan said at a McKinney Chamber of Commerce event in September 2019.

In addition to restaurants, the development will house a 286-unit apartment complex with a dog park, a fitness center, a resort-style infinity pool and a bocce ball court.

As of late August, the project had about 20,000 square feet, or 25% of the space, remaining to lease, Jordan said.
