This 242-acre mixed-use development will be located along the Dallas North Tollway, north of Warren Parkway. It will surround the Star, the headquarters and training facilities for the Dallas Cowboys.
The development package outlines plans for 4 million square feet of office space, 2,400 multifamily residences, restaurants, entertainment venues, medical and wellness facilities, industrial space, and public parks and open spaces. The initial phase of development is expected to start in 2015.
“The city of Frisco continues to be a major center of growth in the North Texas region,” said Ross Perot, Jr., chairman of Hillwood and The Perot Companies. “We’re proud to be partnering with The Rudman Partnership and VanTrust Real Estate to develop this dynamic project in such an exciting regional corridor. Frisco Station will exemplify each of our best practices, including innovative urban design and long-term sustainability within the community.”
The Rudman Partnership and Rudman family affiliates have owned this land for more than half a century. They are behind quite a few office, medical, and residential real estate projects in Frisco.
Hillwood Properties will be the master developer of Frisco Station, which will include coordinating land planning and infrastructure development, and building the multifamily residential and non-office parts of the project. They are well known for their work as developers of the 18,000-acre AllianceTexas project in North Fort Worth, one of the most successful public-private partnerships in the country.
VanTrust Real Estate will develop Frisco Station’s office projects.
Frisco Station is designed to be “an intelligent and efficient destination…the innovative, entrepreneurial corporate community leader in Frisco with modern amenities, flexible workspaces, and a vibrant economic climate,” according to master plans.
Frisco Station is part of what Mayor Maher Maso is calling the “$5 billion mile.” Other components of that area will include:
