A new Frisco residential development that's planning more than 3,000 homes and apartments will open its first phase this summer. The 735-acre Grove community, on Main Street west of Custer Road, is being built in partnership with Newland Communities and North America Sekisui House LLC, a Japanese builder. The companies bought the land in 2016. Home will be priced from the $400,000s to the $700,000s. American Legend Homes, Drees Custom Homes, Highland Homes and Southgate Homes are building in The Grove. The community also includes a farmhouse with a café and bakery, a fitness center, pools, 4.5 miles of nature and neighborhood trails, and a dog park. The Grove property is planned to have 1,800 homes and 1,400 apartments, plus retail and office space. Newland is based in San Diego and has more than 140 developments in 13 states completed or under construction. The company has developed portions of the Stonebridge Ranch community in McKinney since 2003.
