4,000-Home Development Planned For Celina, Texas

The first phase is expected to be complete by late 2025

Another major development is planned for Celina as the boomtown continues to grow. 

The 1,380-acre community, called Ramble by Hillwood, stretches from Preston Road to Custer Road and is located two miles north of downtown Celina. The initial phase is set to unveil 700 homes crafted by North Texas builders, including American Legend Homes, Coventry Homes, Drees Custom Homes, Highland Homes and Perry Homes.

The projected total investment surpasses $2 billion, with an average home price anticipated to be around $600,000.

The natural rolling hills, water features and extensive groves of mature trees found on the land will be integrated into a planned four-mile greenbelt. This greenbelt boasts activated parks, open spaces and lakes, offering ideal settings for outdoor recreation and leisure. 

The community will break ground in late 2024 with a projected grand opening in late 2025. Hillwood has not yet announced plans for the other phases of the development. 

Ramble won't be the only project in the pipeline for Hillwood. They're set to unveil the Hunter Ranch neighborhood in Denton, Treeline in Justin and Legacy neighborhood in southeast Houston by 2025. The company is also expanding three master-planned communities in North Texas: Pecan Square in Northlake, Union Park in Little Elm and Harvest in Argyle.

But Ramble isn’t the only major development planned for Celina in 2024. As Local Profile previously reported, construction for Uptown Celina is planned to begin in September. The community is set to feature four distinct single-family neighborhoods spanning over 675 acres. The $35 million development is set to hold approximately 1,340 homes throughout the four areas. 

“People are drawn to Celina for its sense of community — and the historic downtown square is a huge part of that,” previously said Ryan Griffin, principal at Rockhill Capital & Investments.

Part of Celina’s advantage is its strategic location: it’s only a 15-minute drive away from Frisco. The Collin County town is near major commercial centers connected thanks to Preston Road running through the city. Griffen explained, “Uptown Celina will be an extension of downtown, offering ‘backyard’ access via its trails.”
