Weekend Recap- October 26 Edition

“PRINCETON, TX—Princeton’s population has nearly doubled in the last years, resulting in significant single-family residential development. This residential demand is due to its location on US Highway 380, its close proximity to the US Highway 75 corridor and its commuting proximity to notable DFW employers. Additionally, residential lot sales in Princeton have increased more than 30% in the last year.

To remedy some of that immense demand, a new development, Princeton Crossroads, will be one of the largest mixed-use projects in Collin County at 297 acres. It will include the new Princeton City Hall, a retail center, a multifamily project, 333 single-family homes, 166 townhomes and a city park. The site for this project is the largest undeveloped commercial tract in Princeton on the north and south sides of US Highway 380.”
