A planned residential development will add townhomes and multifamily to a site that was recently approved to be annexed into city limits, according to city documents.

McKinney City Council members approved a request to annex a site in north McKinney into the city’s limits and rezone the property at an April 2 council meeting.

The details

The approved request included the annexation of about 74 acres in the northwest sector of the city. The request was approved unanimously, with council members Patrick Cloutier and Rick Franklin absent.

The approval included zoning for the site, which was divided into two land tracts as well as a roughly 7 acre dedication of parkland. The annexation and rezoning of the property follows the approval of a preannexation agreement that was approved by the council in November.

The annexed site is located on FM 1461, just east of FM 2478 and adjacent to the site of Aster Park, a master-planned community. The land is also located at the future intersection of FM 1461 and Stonebridge Drive, according to city documents.

A residential development including both multifamily and townhomes is planned for the site. The rezoning request approved by council members would allow for the development of up to 140 townhomes and 600 multifamily units, according to city documents.

The city will provide water and wastewater services, as well as fire and police protection, to the annexed area, according to city documents. The preannexation agreement also states that the developer, listed in city documents as Hijo LTD and Sutton Fields Investments LLC, will lead the construction of the portion of Stonebridge Drive that runs through the property.
