New Music Project in the Works for Frisco’s $5 Billion Mile
Frisco is hoping to add some music to its $5 billion mile.
The city’s economic development corporation and planning commission are working on details for an almost 7-acre entertainment and retail project on the east side of the Dallas North Tollway. The project, called Music City, would include a more than 1,000-seat indoor theater, a 390-seat outdoor stage and a restaurant.
“The applicant proposes that the facility will host concerts, movie and wine festivals, and theater,” Frisco planners say in city filings.
The property is currently owned by the Frisco Economic Development Corp. which is shepherding the project. It’s across the tollway from the Dallas Cowboy’s Star complex which includes a variety of restaurants, retail, hotel and sports facilities. The planned Music City project is just south of the $2 billion Wade Park mixed-use development, which is facing foreclosure.
Dallas design firm Hodges Architecture has done preliminary plans for the entertainment project. If the development goes ahead, Frisco will join a growing list of North Texas communities that are adding performance venues.
One of the largest is Irving’s new Music Factory development which includes a performance theater, retail, restaurant and office space.
