McKinney says no to developer who wanted tax credit to help fund apartments for low-income housing

An 84-unit apartment complex won’t be the new neighbor on a piece of land zoned for multi-family housing after the McKinney City Council voted to deny a low-income housing tax credit.

The property is situated off Ridge Road and Virginia Parkway.

The real estate developer asked for the tax credit to bring in affordable housing apartments near McKinney’s Dowell Middle School, a retirement community and the Trinity Presbyterian Church.

McKinney city council members voted, 4-3, to deny the tax credit.

Look for the land close to Chateau retirement community, the church and the school to come before planning and zoning again west of U.S. 75.

The McKinney YMCA is near where the apartments would have gone up west of Ridge Road in this area that’s south of Virginia Parkway.

Plano TX adding to its Legacy lineup of corporate headquarters as Boeing Global Services announces move

Boeing has selected a site in Plano, Texas, for the headquarters of its new Global Services business unit, which will be operational in July.

Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere said, “On behalf of the city of Plano, we are thrilled to welcome an iconic 100-year- innovative company like Boeing. Through the partnership with our city and the many amenities of Legacy West, we look forward to helping Boeing Global Services deliver on its mission.”

Boeing Global Services headquarters will be located in the Legacy West mixed- use development in northwest Plano, the company announced on PRNewswire on Wednesday afternoon.

Boeing Global Services President and CEO Stan Deal, several of his leadership team members and some support staff will be situated at the site, which will serve as a central hub for approximately 20,000 employees located around the globe.

Texas continues to be a global powerhouse in business expansion and relocation because of our economic policies that encourage industry leaders, like Boeing, to expand their operations here,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “As governor, I will continue to promote a low-tax and reasonable regulatory environment that removes barriers to entry and provides certainty for developing industries. I am proud to welcome Boeing’s new Global Services unit to Texas and look forward to working with them further to continue their expansion in the Lone Star State.”

Boeing selected the greater Dallas area because it’s centrally located within Boeing’s U.S. footprint, has good proximity to major operations for commercial customers and defense partners, and serves as a transportation hub that will allow the company to reach customers quickly and efficiently.

Deal, a veteran Boeing exec, said, “We are excited to establish the Global Services headquarters in Plano. We have a fixed focus on serving our customers worldwide, and this location assists in our mission of providing uncompromising service worldwide.”

Boeing will host an opening ceremony at the new location once Boeing Global Services is operational in July.

In November 2016, Boeing announced the Deal would be leading Global Services, which will be formed by integrating the services capabilities of the defense, space and commercial sectors into a single, customer-focused business. Operating as a third business unit of Boeing, Global Services will provide agile, cost-competitive services to commercial and defense customers worldwide.
