McKinney residents and stakeholders will have the opportunity to offer input on a downtown redevelopment project during a Nov. 28 event, according to a news release from the city of McKinney.

The event will include presentations from three development teams that submitted proposals to partner with the city in the redevelopment of city-owned property in Historic Downtown McKinney.

The context

City Council members declared their intention to pursue a public-private partnership for the redevelopment of four city-owned properties in downtown McKinney at a January 2023 meeting.

A request for qualifications for the project was issued in June, and 15 responses were received, according to a presentation at an Oct. 24 meeting. City staff members evaluated and scored the responses using a scoring rubric included in the request for qualification, and interviewed the top five scoring respondents.

The properties total about 4.6 acres and have a total assessed value of about $3.2 million, according to city documents. Affected properties include the current McKinney City Hall, the city’s Development Services building and two adjacent parking lots.

The buildings will be vacated following the completion of the new McKinney City Hall, which is currently under construction and is expected to open in early 2025, according to the release.

Get involved

The event will be held from 5:30-8:45 p.m., Nov. 28 at McKinney City Hall, located at 222 N. Tennessee St.

The development teams will present “preliminary development concepts” that will convey how the properties could be redeveloped, according to the release. A survey will be conducted to collect feedback, and attendees will be able to ask questions of the development teams following the presentations, according to the release.

City Council members will decide whether or not to pursue one of the submissions following the presentations and public engagement opportunity, according to city staff.

Quote of note

“The redevelopment of these properties will be very impactful, and we want to make sure the public has a chance to weigh in on the development teams and their visions,” City Manager Paul Grimes said in the release. “Because the redevelopment of these properties will help shape the future of our downtown, it’s important to the city’s leadership to hear from the public as we select our development partner.”
