With an update to Richardson’s zoning map and comprehensive zoning ordinance, a new townhome development is moving forward.

Richardson City Council approved the two amendments to the zoning map and ordinance for an 89-unit townhome community, Park Hollow, during its June 10 meeting.

Two-minute impact

The approval is the second part of council’s approval for zoning changes within the city. Richardson council members previously voted to approve a rezoning request to create a planned development district for Park Hollow during the June 3 meeting.

To the north of the gated townhomes, a detention pond for excess stormwater will be developed and will include a perimeter walking trail, park benches and around 15 new trees. The 6.5-acre townhome community will occupy property previously used by Sting Soccer Club.

What’s next?

Neil Stenberg, vice president of acquisitions at the Skorburg Company, the Dallas-based developer for the project, previously told council a contract with Mattamy Homes to construct the townhomes was nearly complete. No timeline has been established for when the homes will be ready to sell.
