It used to be that 635 was considered the Dallas "cutoff," with many people famously claiming everything they needed was located south of that border.
Then North Dallas took off, with big-name companies positioning their headquarters in Frisco, Plano, and McKinney. Trendy new restaurants and shopping centers opened in the area, and a home-building boom created neighborhoods where everyone is now flocking to live.
One such development is Trinity Falls, a master-planned community just northwest of McKinney. It's ideally positioned next to everything hot and happening, and offers a lifestyle of convenience and recreation (an onsite Director of Fun, anyone?).
Trinity Falls is built on 2,000 green acres along the Trinity River, with 1,000 homes currently completed and the goal of adding 4,000 more. They range in price from the $200s to the $700s, with six esteemed builders from which to choose.
But the homes become even more attractive when you consider where they are located. You're just minutes away from Historic Downtown McKinney, with its boutiques, upscale restaurants, and locally owned eateries.
The steals and deals of Allen Premium Outlets — along with Fairview Town Center — can be found less than 20 minutes away. The charming Watters Creek in Allen is just a few more exits down US-75, where you can partake of outdoor music nights and other community gatherings when you're not strolling the outdoor shopping center.
Head west and you'll find two of North Texas' premier entertainment destinations: Legacy West and The Star District in Frisco. New brands are opening all the time, and sporty residents can work out at the Dallas Cowboys' official training center and practice facility.
Among the major companies that are now headquartering in Plano and Frisco are Toyota, Ericsson, Chase, McAfee, Liberty Mutual, Frito-Lay, Boeing, Keurig Dr Pepper, and many others. Down the road in Richardson are several established tech companies, from Fujitsu to Texas Instruments.
Trinity Falls offers a have-it-all experience, with employment, see-and-be-seen restaurants, and a shopaholic's retail dream within easy distance of your comfortable home nestled in nature.
