“This concept is new and unique. By blending placemaking within the context of Wellness Living we are creating a special place for our residents and for Sherman. The City of Sherman quickly recognized the distinct nature of the concept and was a pleasure to work with to obtain permits.”

Sherman is located along the rapidly growing I‐75 corridor, 65 miles north of downtown Dallas. Over the last ten years, the city has experienced cumulative population growth of 20.0%, poised to continue with the announcement of several public and private sector investments. Sherman is home to the Texoma Medical Center, a 414 bed, Level III trauma center employing 3,500 individuals. Furthermore, in May 2022, Texas Instruments broke ground on a $30B semiconductor fabrication plant which will be completed in 2025 and create 3,000 direct new jobs in Sherman.

Zeal plans to break ground in January of 2023 and deliver homes at Hickory Hill at Sherman in 2024. The project is being funded internally without the use of a construction lender.
