A planned development along North Hwy. 34 in Terrell received a zoning change as well as rave reviews from the City Council on Tuesday.
The roughly nine-acre planned development calls for 41 single-family homes resting on minimum lots sizes of 6,000 square feet. The development will be situated between Rose Street and East McCoulskey Street, north of Callie Street (State Hwy. 34).
The council approved changing the zoning from single-family to planned single-family.
Houses in the development are designed to be a minimum of 1,800 square feet. Amenities include landscaping, a small park and playground equipment, walking trails, a pond and a fountain. A sound barrier along Hwy. 34 will be erected. The property will be maintained by a homeowners association.
A conceptual site plan shows a variety of architectural designs for both single and two story homes.
The developer, Bilad Mashood of Frisco, said he chooses to do projects in Metroplex satellite communities like Terrell so houses can be kept in an affordable range.
Architect Shahnaz Talukder of Plano called the project a model development for Terrell.
Councilman Grady Simpson described the planned development as a “dream project.”
“This is the reason why people will come to Terrell, for projects like this.”
