On the Horizon
Frisco, Texas is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. In 2016, Frisco celebrated the opening of the National Videogame Museum, The Ford Center at the Star and Hyatt House Hotel.
Looking ahead, there are numerous projects currently under construction and in the works including new hotels, attractions, as well as shopping and dining options for residents and visitors. View details for these projects below.
National Soccer Hall of Fame
Scheduled to open fall 2018, the National Soccer Hall of Fame is currently under construction at the south end of Toyota Stadium, making it the first national sports hall of fame to be attached to a stadium. The $39-million project will feature more than 100,000 square feet of renovated space, including new locker rooms, additional premium seats, a private club and the hall of fame.
The 24,000-square- foot National Soccer Hall of Fame will be set on the top level of the three- level stadium addition. It will house an array of U.S. Soccer memorabilia and trophies, including the Women's World Cup, Gold Cup and Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup trophies. It will also be the permanent site for the annual National Soccer Hall of Fame induction ceremony. A new 5,000- seat amphitheater will also allow the stadium to host some smaller events, such as small concerts or corporate events.
Currently under construction, Frisco’s newest 175-acre mixed-use development, Wade Park, will redefine upscale elegance in a contemporary, eclectic setting. Anchored by Whole Foods, iPic Theaters and Pinstripes Inc., a total of 600,000 square feet of specialty retail will include national fashion retailers along with best-in- class restaurants all in a village format. This retail space will mingle alongside six million square feet of office space, in both over-retail and office tower formats.
A boutique hotel and a luxury hotel will serve up a total of 500 rooms, ideal for visiting business travelers or upscale staycations. These residences, offices and hotels will be mere steps from entertainment options including bowling, a movie theater, and nightlife.
Langham Hotel at Wade Park
Texas's first Langham Hotels & Resorts hotel is currently under construction in Frisco. Langham Hotels & Resorts is a top-rated international luxury hotel brand, known for sophisticated and gracious hospitality and elegance in design. Slated to open in early 2018, the new hotel will be prominently located along the Dallas North Tollway at Lebanon Road.
The project's progressive high-rise architectural design, by 5G Studio Collaborative in Dallas, will be sleek and modern with a total of up to 35 floors, including up to 25 hotel floors and 10 floors of planned residential. Plans for the Langham Hotels & Resorts luxury hotel at Wade Park include 250 guest rooms, more than 25,000 square-feet of meeting and convention space, rooftop pool deck, a full-service Chuan Spa and much more.
Frisco Station will be a new-urban development designed from top to bottom to enhance the well-being of all who visit, live and work there. The community is built around an innovative wellness program that brings together fitness amenities, medical facilities and wellness programming in a brand new way. The entire project covers over 242 acres, anticipates a future resident population of just over 3,400 people, will offer 9 acres of green and open space, will be next door to The Ford Center at The Star and will have a daytime employment population of just over 14,000 people.

NewcrestImage to Develop "Lifestyle Hotel Campus" at Frisco Station
NewcrestImage is launching an ambitious and innovative 4-brand, 600-room “lifestyle hotel campus” at Frisco Station, a 242-acre, mixed-use development located in the northwest quadrant of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway in Frisco, Texas. The campus will include a dual- brand AC Hotel and Residence Inn, both by Marriott, featuring about 300 rooms plus a Canopy by Hilton and a Hyatt Place, each featuring about 150 rooms. AC and Canopy are chic lifestyle brands, while Residence is an upscale extended-stay brand and Hyatt Place is a select-service brand. Construction on the hotels will take place in two phases, with three hotels -- the AC, Residence, and Canopy -- scheduled to break ground in January of 2017 and the first openings anticipated in June of 2018. Construction of the Hyatt Place is expected to begin during 2017.

The proposal calls for the hotel to be done no later than December 2019.
