A new master-planned community with 1,376 homes is coming to 450 acres in McKinney.

Taylor Morrison, in partnership with Pulte Homes, announced March 30 that it had purchased the first two phases of the joint development. The community, called Highland Lakes, is located on the north side of Bloomdale Road and south of FM 1461. Homes in Highland Lakes will start in the low $300,000s, a news release stated.

“Highland Lakes will be a flagship development for Taylor Morrison on the east side of DFW,” Keith Hurand, president of Taylor Morrison’s Dallas division, said in the release. “It is an ideal location in northern McKinney that has extensive open space including a beautiful lake and scenic views.”

Construction on the community is slated to start in April and will consist of multiple phases. The first will consist of 229 one- and two-story homes. These will be divided into 50-by-120-foot lots and 60-by-120-foot lots. Homes in Highland Lakes will be in Prosper ISD and “will attract buyers at various life stages,” Hurand said in the release.

Taylor Morrison and Pulte Homes will evenly split the amount of homes they will build in the community. Taylor Morrison will offer 15 floor plans with square footage ranging from 1,650 to 3,450, and Pulte Homes will offer 11 floor plans ranging from 1,690 to 3,600 square feet.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Highland Lakes in McKinney,” said Bryan Swindell, division president for PulteGroup in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, in the release. “It has everything a new homebuyer is looking for—the right location, amazing amenities and great schools.”

Additionally, Highland Lakes will have an amenity center that will offer a pool, fitness center and park. A trail system will also link the community with the on-site lake.

Model homes are expected to be open by fall 2022.
