Brand New Apartments in Plano, TX for 2020

June 2, 2020 by Ted Bauer

Both Collin and Denton counties tripled their population in the last two decades. As a logical result, development was ramped up in those areas, especially in Plano, which was aiming to become a true “city of excellence” designed with residents in mind. Since about 2015, each year we saw a tremendous amount of brand new apartments in the Plano area; here’s an example of some brand new properties in Central Plano (built since 2016). West Plano also has a share of brand new properties.

So, then 2020 happened, and COVID/corona. Construction was deemed an essential job, and while there was a slowdown, hammers did keep swinging. Now there is broadly a sense that people are beginning to move again, so it begs the question: are there any really brand new apartments for Plano in 2020?
