The Celina City Council has approved a planned 641-acre development that will bring 300 rental “tiny homes” and 1,300 multifamily units to the city, amenitized by 13 acres of park land with trails surrounding a pond.
That’s according to a report by the Dallas Morning News, which notes that the Rainwater Crossing development will now feature additional green space and amenity centers compared to an earlier proposal approved in 2016.
Philip Thompson, president of HFI Celina Realty, agreed to complete construction on G.A. Moore Parkway in the first phase of the project, the DMN noted, quoting him as saying of the green space around the pond (shown above), “We want to make nice trails. It’s definitely a feature and something great to have so those worried about trees going away and us bulldozing, that’s not happening.”
One resident impacted by the revised plan had positive things to say about it, according to Community Impact.
“If you look at the differences in the development plan from what was proposed and approved back in 2016 to where we are today, I think a lot of the changes that they’re making are actually going to benefit the community,” Lynn Bender said, according to Community Impact.
