The McKinney Planning & Zoning Commission agreed to rezone about 24 acres from a planned development district to a local commercial district to allow for the use of a clinic at the northwest corner of Eldorado Parkway and the west side of Central Expressway. This is the same shopping center where Trader Joe’s is located. Carter BloodCare plans to occupy the space next to Home Consignment Center in this area.
The rezoning was needed because, under the current zone, clinic uses were not permitted with retail uses.
Carter BloodCare has seen an uptick in demand, partially due to its offerings of COVID-19 antibody tests, said David C. Spagnolo, division director for Whitestone Reit real estate, on behalf of the clinic. If Carter BloodCare gets the approval it needs, it is expected to open before the end of the year, he said.
The item will be sent to the McKinney City Council’s Oct. 19 meeting with a favorable recommendation from commissioners.
