Over 3,500 people attended the Sept. 9 grand opening of Painted Tree, an 1,100-acre master planned community in north McKinney, according to a news release.

The setup

Painted Tree, a project by Dallas-Fort Worth-based residential development firm Oxland Group, features three districts and 25 miles of trails. The community will include 3,400 total residences once completed, including single-family homes and multifamily units.

Homes in the development range in cost from high $400,000s to over $800,000, and include options from nine homebuilders. Additional homebuilders are expected to be announced in 2024, according to the release.

The details

The grand opening event included tours of nine model homes along with live music, food trucks and a ribbon-eating ceremony with a goat. The event also included comments from McKinney Mayor George Fuller as well as the co-president and founder of Oxland Group, Tom Woliver.

“We are proud to create a welcoming and vibrant community for the people of North Texas and to see residents and future homeowners enjoy the experience that is Painted Tree,” Woliver said in the release.

The event was held in the community’s Village District at the Village Trailhead and Pool. The Village Trailhead also includes The Outpost, a community space featuring a pavilion, a lookout tower, a park and more. Construction on The Outpost is underway and is expected to be complete in 2024.

Also of note

The development was included on RCLCO’s list of the 50 top-selling communities nationwide in July. Over 220 homes have been sold in the Painted Tree community since the beginning of the year, according to the release.

“It’s nearly unprecedented to make this list prior to a grand opening,” Woliver said in the release. “This is a great testament to the health of the housing market in McKinney and North Texas.”
