The City of McKinney is seeking master development proposals from qualified development teams for the redevelopment of a City-owned primary site (approximately nine acres) and/or any combination of nine City-owned secondary sites located in the City’s historic downtown.

Consistent with the City’s adopted Master Plan for the historic downtown area, redevelopment of the primary site and/or any combination of the secondary sites is expected to include new residential uses and/or new commercial/office/retail/educational uses (single use and/or mixed use building improvements) within a compact and pedestrian-friendly design.

The City is committed to facilitating the redevelopment of the primary site and/or any of the secondary sites by any reasonable means, including the full range of economic development tools available under state law.

Offered incentives will aim to be mutually beneficial and will be based on negotiations with the selected development team and the merits of the proposed project.

The City’s ownership of the primary site and of the secondary sites offers several options for property control/acquisition by the selected development team. The land conveyance process for any included sites will be undertaken in accordance with applicable state laws governing disposition of public property.
