Allen has launched a new online map that allows residents to keep track of the new businesses and developments coming to their neighborhood. A look at the lineup of projects on the map now shows, among other projects, the city’s new recreation center, HTeaO and a 17,291-square-foot retail development.

The map separates projects based on how far along they are in development: proposed, approved, in construction and completed. Each individual project can be selected for further details.
