Georgia-based Davis Development will construct 600 apartment units at Painted Tree in McKinney, making the master-planned community one of the most diverse in North Texas when it comes to housing options.

“The inclusion of multifamily housing at Painted Tree allows us to offer a broad range of home options that best accommodate what our residents are looking for in North Texas,” Tom Woliver, co-president and founder of Oxland Group said.

One of Collin County’s biggest new residential communities, the 1,100-acre Painted Tree development in McKinney, is getting a major apartment project.

Painted Tree developer Oxland Group has done a deal with Atlanta-based builder Davis Development for a 600-unit luxury rental community planned to open in phases starting next year. Plans for the new rental community include a clubhouse featuring lounge areas, a two-story fitness center, a golf simulator, a pet spa, a movie theater and a conference room and private offices.

The team from Avid Trails were recently onsite, boots on the ground, charting each step of Painted Tree’s trail experience. Jay Hoeschler and Justin Lax are founding partners of Avid Trails, a nationally-recognized leader in trail planning, design and build. They trudged through the woods and over the creek searching out those truly special opportunities to engage with nature along the 25 miles of planned trails.

The city of McKinney has purchased a large tract of land in one of its biggest new developments for a public park. The 230 acres just acquired in Painted Tree is planned to include athletic fields, recreational facilities, and future community and economic development projects.

“Collaborating with the city of McKinney in creating a mix of amenities only adds to the variety of options ‘in nature’ for residents of this outdoor-centric community,” Tom Woliver, co-president and founder of Oxland Group, said.


Developers of one of Collin County’s newest residential communities plan to build sites for 1,200 homes in the first phase. The 1,100-acre Painted Tree community is under construction north of U.S. Highway 380 in McKinney.

Oxland Group has already contracted to sell home sites to builders including Trophy Signature Homes, Normandy Homes, CB Jeni Homes, Tri Pointe Homes, David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes and Drees Custom Homes.

“This is the largest first phase delivery of lots in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” Tom Woliver, co-president and founder of Oxland Group, said in a statement. “This delivery will help provide a solution when demand is outpacing supply at record levels in North Texas. It will also serve as a valuable stepping stone for further development north.”

Recently at Painted Tree, a herd of 100 goats was released onto 11.5 acres of the 1,100 acre community to clear thick underbrush, in an environmentally sensitive manner. By using the goats, it allowed the natural beauty of the tree stands and creek that runs through a 200 acre greenbelt within Painted Tree to be maintained which was vital to the community vision. Releasing the goats served as a fitting “groundbreaking” for this nature-centric community.



Oxland Advisors, the Dallas-based developers of the huge Painted Tree residential community in McKinney, is banking on the desire of homebuyers to take a hike. Or a bike ride. Or a run.

Some 69 percent of potential homebuyers in Dallas-Fort Worth and 54 percent nationwide rank walking and bike trails as the most desired outdoor amenity in a residential community, according to survey data collected by housing research firm Zonda.

Oxland Advisors is taking those statistics to heart with plans for 25 miles of looped paths and trails and outdoor-centric amenities in the development, plus pools and playgrounds.

Developers of a huge new McKinney community are adding to plans for the project with a ground breaking set for early next year. Called Painted Tree, the 1,100-acre development north of U.S. 380 is a project of Dallas-based Oxland Advisors and New York-based JEN Partners. The new community is planned to include 3,400 homes.

Painted Tree’s developers have updated their designs for the new community to include 25 miles of paths and trails plus pools and playgrounds. The community will also an 11.5-acre open-air trailhead and amenity center, a 20-acre lake and parks.

Oxland Advisors beefed up the outdoor features planned for Painted Tree after surveying potential new home community residents. Almost 70% percent of potential homebuyers rated walking trails as the most desired feature of a new community.

McKinney’s Planning and Zoning Commissioners unanimously recommended the rezoning request of 620 acres within the Painted Tree development, at the meeting on December 8th. This will allow for single-family residential, multifamily residential and commercial uses to be built on the property.  These 620 acres are part of the total 1,100 acres that make up the master plan.

“I think this is one of the better presentations that we’ve seen on a development in some time,” Commissioner Brian Mantzey said. “I think it shows a lot of consideration that went in; it’s great to hear the notes of bringing nature into the subdivisions.”
