A former soccer complex in Richardson is set to be torn down and replaced with a gated townhome community.

A rezoning request to create a planned development district for an 89-unit townhome development was approved by Richardson City Council during its June 3 meeting.

The overview

Dallas-based developer Skorburg Company is overseeing the Park Hollow project, which will be located at the former Sting Soccer Club facility on Buckingham Road. Eighty-nine townhomes are planned for the parcel, which occupies 6.5 acres, said Neil Stenberg, vice president of acquisitions at the Skorburg Company.

In addition to the townhomes, the developer is also planning to purchase 2 acres north of the property, which will be used for a detention pond. Stenberg said there are plans to decorate the area surrounding the detention pond with around 15 trees, a 4-foot perimeter walking trail, lighting, a bicycle rack and two park benches.

“It’s important to us that the open space looks nice and is something that is usable,” said John Arnold, a development partner for the project.

Digging deeper

Stenberg said units are planned to be at least 1,600 square feet and will be priced starting at $500,000.

According to city documents, a homeowners association is required for the property and will be responsible for maintenance of several areas, including:
  • The detention pond area
  • All sidewalks and green spaces within the gated community
  • Paved alleys within the gated community
The Richardson City Plan Commission previously recommended approval of the project during its May 7 meeting.

What’s next?

Stenberg said the Skorburg Company is working on finalizing a builder contract for the development with Mattamy Homes. No timeline was given for when homes would be completed.
