A zoning change request that would mark the start of a redevelopment project for Plano Market Square Mall is expected to be discussed by Plano City Council members Dec. 14.

The proposed redevelopment plans would bring another roughly 325 apartment and townhome units to Plano, as well as up to 16,500 square feet of restaurant and retail space. Portions of the abandoned mall would also be repurposed for roughly 178,000 square feet of office space along K Avenue.


The mall sits within one of the areas identified as a village concept in the Envision Oak Point Plan, a broad development guide for the city’s eastern Oak Point area adopted in 2018. Houston-based Triten Real Estate Partners expressed their interest in leaning into the idea of a village concept through the architecture of the development at a Nov. 16 Plano Planning and Zoning Commission meeting.

The City Council meeting will be livestreamed on the Plano TV webpage as well as on Facebook. A public hearing will be held for the item, according to the meeting's agenda.
