More than 62 acres in McKinney have been given an initial nod of approval for new uses through rezoning.

On Oct. 13 the McKinney Planning and Zoning Commission voted in favor of allowing a tract of land at the northeast corner of Henneman Way and Weiskopf Parkway to be rezoned to a new planned development, with a base of office uses as well as some additional allowed uses.

The commission gave a favorable recommendation to reshuffle the zoning in the area to keep with the office and retail elements at the site, but to place them into specific tracts. The proposed rezoning provides for seven tracts, ranging from regional office and residential uses, with the potential residential areas facing the other residential areas currently in existence off Van Tuyl Parkway.

“I think this is one of the most complex cases that you have probably had,” said Bob Roeder, speaking on behalf of the applicant, to commissioners.

The modified regulations and additional allowed uses would permit some type of grocery or food store, drug store, florist, office supply store, fitness club, restaurant or retail store to be developed inside 3.77 acres allotted to Tract A, at the corner of Weiskopf and Van Tuyl, per meeting documents. It could also be office, should there be an interest in that, Roeder said.


“This layout generally complements all the surrounding neighborhoods; it seems to fit the site nicely,” Commissioner Christopher Haeckler said.

Commissioners unanimously gave the rezoning a favorable recommendation. The project will be presented to McKinney City Council at its Nov. 3 meeting for approval.
