According to the Dallas Morning News, a division of the Pulte Group is building a 127-acre, 537-home addition to the Trinity Falls community in McKinney which is just north of Dallas. The community is being designed for the 55 and up demographic and will include 12 acres of amenities featuring a clubhouse, pool, and fitness center. "Today, age-restricted communities make up a sizable segment of the housing market," said Robert Ditthardt, general manager of Trinity Falls.

The 2,000-acre Trinity Falls community has houses priced from the low $300,000s to more than $600,000. Builders in the development include Ashton Woods, Gehan Homes, Highland Homes, Meritage Homes, Perry Homes and Plantation Homes. Del Webb is one of the country's oldest and largest builders of homes aimed at mature buyers. It already has North Texas communities in Frisco and Little Elm.

Trinity Falls is one of the Dallas area's biggest residential developments and is owned by Houston-based Johnson Development. The community located west of U.S. Highway 74 opened in 2014 with plans for 4,000 homes and commercial space.
