McKinney’s Denizen Hotel eyes summer groundbreaking

Developers working for more than a year on a new McKinney hotel hope to break ground on the project in the coming months.

The Denizon Hotel is planned on State Highway 121 at Alma Road in the huge Craig Ranch development.

Archstreet Hotel Partners will build the more than 100-room hotel as part of the mixed-use District 121 project. The almost 20-acre development also includes a new office building plus restaurant and retail space. The four-story hotel building is expected to cost about $20 million.

“We hope to start work this summer and open in the fall of 2024,” Archstreet founder Michael Mueller said. He previously founded Nylo Hotels, which built properties in Las Colinas and Plano.

Dallas architect 5G Studio Collaborative is designing the luxury hotel.

The Denizen Hotel will be the latest addition to the hospitality market along SH 121 between Frisco and McKinney – a corridor that’s seen dramatic growth.

The Craig Ranch development includes thousands of homes plus commercial and retail construction.

Dallas-Fort Worth is the country’s fastest growing hotel market with more than 170 projects in the development pipeline.
