A redevelopment of an existing lumber yard and commercial structure into new apartments is set to get underway, according to a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

Dallas-based developer Trinsic Residential Group is set to invest around $50 million, per an estimate filed with the state, to construct a 325-unit apartment complex, parking structure and open space. The project, called Aura Northline, is taking place in southern Plano, near the Richardson border along the President George Bush Turnpike.

The overview

The new apartment complex will be near the future 12th Street Station, which is one of the stops along Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s nearly $2.1 billion Silver Line project. Apartments will be housed in two five-story buildings that will be built around a five-story parking garage, per the filing.

Plano City Council previously approved the rezoning for the apartment complex last April.

Based on the requirements approved in 2023, 10%-20% of the development must be dedication to open space, which includes dog parks, playgrounds and other amenities.

What’s next?

Construction is expected to start this April and be complete in April 2026, according to the filing.
