On the Horizon
Frisco, Texas is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. 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.
PGA of America & Omni Resort
The PGA of America is moving its headquarters from Palm Beach County, Florida to Frisco, Texas, the ‘2018 Best Place to Live in America,’* where it will anchor a 600-acre, mixed-use development with an initial investment worth more than half a billion dollars. This groundbreaking agreement is estimated to have an economic impact of more than $2.5 billion over the next 20 years based on a city commissioned tourism feasibility study.** The study considered the economics of golf course activities, including tournaments, plus the additional impact from the new conference center.
Two championship golf courses, a short course, and practice areas totaling 45 holes; a clubhouse; Class AA office space; a 500-room Omni resort and 127,000-square-foot conference center; a technologically advanced retail village; parks and open space plus several miles of trails, will complement this unique, signature development.
The 77-acre Lesso America development on U.S. Highway 380 will include a half million-square-foot shopping mall, a wholesale trade mart and high-rise office, hotel and some 1,200 apartments just west of the Dallas North Tollway.
"The mall itself we are anticipating will be two levels. There might be a cinema on top or offices," said Joseph Pobiner with architect Gensler. "This is going to be a destination. There are only two others being built by Lesso in the U.S."
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 Ford Center at The Star and will have a daytime employment population of just over 14,000 people.
