(Dallas, Texas) October 16, 2014 – Encore Retail, LLC, a subsidiary of Dallas-based Encore Enterprises, Inc., acquired land to develop a 20-acre Class A neighborhood retail development in the master planned community of Craig Ranch, a 2,200 acre master-planned business, retail, and residential community. The development will be located at the city limit lines of McKinney and Frisco, Texas, at the northeast intersection of Custer and Stacy Roads.
The project will be known as Marketplace at Craig Ranch and will be anchored by a grocer with inline retail space, as well as five outparcel pad sites along Custer and Stacy Roads.

With the excellent access, quality of the design, and strong trade area, the development will appeal to a wide array of retailers looking to expand into the growing submarket,” said Nicholas Barber, President of Encore Retail.
McKinney, Texas was ranked as the number one best place to live in America and is ranked as one of the fastest growing communities in the United States according to Money Magazine. The award-winning Craig Ranch is a high profile, regional point of destination, with its open space and ambiance serving as a natural setting for outdoor concerts, water-inspired events, art fairs, and exhibits.
