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.”
