McKinney, TX – Over 75 guests joined the celebration on Wednesday, June 29, as Southern Land Company CEO Tim Downey, President Brian Sewell and other project leaders officially broke ground for Tucker Hill’s new Residents’ Club.

Construction has commenced on the building designed by local architect Hudson Lockett.  The Dutch Colonial inspired design includes approximately 4,000 square feet of air conditioned and covered outdoor living space.  The main indoor area consists of a large community room with reception area for neighborhood events and a multi-purpose room for smaller gatherings.  Complimenting these areas are a small café for food service and close to 1,500 square feet of covered outdoor space with views of the lawn facing the resort-style pool. The club will open in late 2016 or early 2017. 

“We are thrilled to be under construction on this exciting addition to Tucker Hill and providing to residents this latest amenity, which will actually be the first of two buildings to be constructed.  Our next project will be to add a fitness center that will contain work-out equipment and classroom space for fitness classes,” said Tim Downey, Southern Land Company CEO.

As one of McKinney’s most unique new home communities known for its traditional neighborhood design and front-porch lifestyle, Tucker Hill currently has over 214 completed homes with plans with a total of 625 homes upon completion.  Besides this Residents’ Club, Community Pool, and proposed Fitness Center, other amenities include a central park with a majestic wrought iron fountain, a dog park, two playgrounds, fire pit, planned community events, and a future paved hike/bike path planned in conjunction with the City of McKinney's master plan.  In addition, construction will soon commence on an approximately 35,000 square foot commercial development located at the community’s entrance.  

Tucker Hill partners with both Darling Homes and David Weekley Homes, who are both currently offering new home opportunities in Phase 3 from the high $300,000s to the mid $500,000s.  Tim Jackson Custom Homes also has one last home still available in Phase 1 that will be ready in August.  For more information about the Tucker Hill community, please visit
