A McKinney developer is moving ahead with plans for a large mixed-use development in Allen that would include a 15,000-seat cricket stadium.
The plan involves some of the same people who last year said they planned to build eight cricket stadiums across the country, including in Dallas.
A news conference is set for Tuesday afternoon at the Allen Event Center to discuss the planned Allen Sports Village. Thakkar Developers and Global Sports Ventures of Philadelphia "are collaborating to build a cricket stadium to be located within a unique mixed-use development in Allen, Texas," according to an email announcing next week's news conference.
Poorvesh Thakkar of Thakkar Developers said he was certain the development would happen.
