More than 450 acres of open space will mix with about 4,200 homes at build-out in Trinity Falls, a master-planned development along the East Fork of the Trinity River. Photo complements of

Rooftops, rooftops, rooftops: it’s a development cry for any city. Build the homes, and they – corporations and retail – will come.

That’s especially true when talking about McKinney’s mostly undeveloped northwest sector. Trinity Falls is answering the cry, and quickly.

The 1,700-acre master-planned community this week announced two new builders for its second phase. Highland Homes and MHI’s Plantation Homes expect to open their models and phase II by early next year.

Castle Hill Partners, which is overseeing the community, anticipates phase II home sellout by mid- to late-2017. “Both builders will greatly complement the development and current builder program,” said Leisha Ehlert, Castle Hill’s vice president of asset management and development.

Phase I, which kicked off last August, features 527 lots and currently four builders for 238 single-family homes, a clubhouse, events lawn, pool and even a tricycle race track. More than 200 homes have sold for a $329,000 average price, and developers anticipate full sellout by the end of 2016.

Ashton Woods, Beazer Homes, Emerald Homes and Gehan Homes offer product variety for the first phase, with prices ranging from the mid-$200,000s to upper-$400,000s.



The master plan for this development, just north of McKinney on Central Expressway (aka Sam Johnson Freeway and Hwy 75), has planned a community that could have 5,000 homes when complete.  Be sure to be represented by a Realtor to get the best value out of your new home.
