Frisco's plan commission gives approval for massive shopping mall and mixed-use project

 

1530063623-lessooffice.jpg?auto=format%2

 

Project Location

 

Frisco's planning commission has given Chinese developers the go ahead to build a huge shopping and mixed-use development on the north side of the city.



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."

Buildings as tall as 25 floors could be built in the project.

"Because the mall sits up on top of the garage, it will be a promontory that is unique to the area," Pobiner said. "You won't walk through a sea of parking to get there."

A street through the heart of the project will be lined with retail and restaurants.

"This being on the city's northern edge, we thought a different type of architecture would help define Frisco's north side," said city planner Anthony Satarino. "The developers stated they wanted a more modern type of architecture."



About 1,200 apartments or condominiums are planned mostly on the south side of the project in buildings ranging in height from seven to 18 stories. The developers would have to build the first-phase shopping mall before starting any residential.

The project still must get final approval from Frisco's city council.

Architects for the project said Lesso America is also planning a headquarters office on U.S. 380 as part of the development.



"That building might be 10 stories," Pobiner said. "It might be taller."

Project Location

 

The 240-plus-acre project at the southwest corner of Rayburn Turnpike and U.S. 75 in Allen is being planned for everything from high-rise office buildings to hotels, retail and apartments.



Called Monarch City, the ambitious development is a project of Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corp, which has owned the land for almost a decade.

"We are creating a community and an amenity-rich environment organized around a great park," said Howard Hughes' senior vice president Mark Bulmash. "People will be excited about this.

"It's not going to be a typical office park."

The developer has been working on the project with Dallas architect Omniplan for more than a year.

Bulmash said that the Monarch City property can accommodate more than 8 million square feet of construction.

"We want to have a walkable urban project."

"We wanted a big bold vision that companies coming to the Dallas area could embrace," he said.

"We show more than 4 million square feet of office on the land," Bulmash said. 



"We are planning to have a very dynamic main street where retail and restaurants will be situated.

The project name Monarch City comes from the butterflies.



"The area was known for butterflies when the settlers first came here" in the 1800s, Bowman said.

TEXRail-layout.jpg

Project Location

 

At its meeting July 3, the Grapevine City Council unanimously acted to designate $895,000 to purchase decorative art for its new community plaza.



The art, called the Peace Circle, will serve as the focal point of the plaza, which will be developed alongside the Grapevine Main TEXRail train station, the boutique Hotel Vin and parking garage.

The Peace Circle will be comprised of 11, life-size bronze figures placed in a walkable circle to reflect on the historic peace treaty meeting held at Grapevine Springs with General Sam Houston



The general will be one scultpture, and the 10 Native American nations will comprise the other sculptures in the circle. The width of the circle itself will stretch more than 40 feet across and will be designed for observers to interact and study the sculptures.

Funding for the Peace Circle comes from the Public Art Fund and the Convention and Visitors Bureau Fund. Chief Financial Officer Greg Jordan specified that the Public Art Fund is not taxpayer dollars and comes from city agreements with cell companies.

McCallum told city staff the installation will be thoroughly researched to be fully accurate in its design. The city will also seek approval by the Native American nations for the depiction, or leading national sources such as the National Museum of the American Indian, the Texas Historical Commission and the Oklahoma Historical Society, or a combination of these options.

Grapevine Artist in Residence Linda Lewis will be the lead sculptor and several other sculptors will be engaged to assist in the completion of individual statues.

Members of the American Indian Nations will also be invited to participate in the process.

The project has an estimated completion date of May 2020.

Plano’s city council on Monday authorized a lease agreement with developer Tirgo LLC for five acres adjacent to the event center, where a Radisson Hotel will be constructed. A preliminary estimate for the hotel's cost is $32 million.

The lodging will connect to the event center and include 175 rooms, a full-service restaurant, a business center, exercise facilities, meeting space and the latest in hotel technology, the city said in a prepared statement.

Plano City Council noted that the hotel will be constructed at no cost to taxpayers, as it will not grant any tax incentives for the development. That will allow the city to keep all hotel occupancy and sales tax revenues.

Project Location

 

The $46 million building will be called Thrive and will be built on the property where the Senior Activity Center and Memorial Park Recreation Center currently sit—1950 S. Valley Parkway—replacing both buildings.



Construction is expected to begin in August and the facility is expected to open in 2020.

The 87,000-square-foot facility is a part of the 2015 bond package and is the largest capital improvement project in the city’s history.

A new recreation center was a top recommendation in the Lewisville 2025 vision plan, and one of the main components of a bond package passed by Lewisville voters in November 2015. 



It will include an indoor natatorium, a gymnasium, an indoor walking track, an expanded fitness area, community rooms, and an indoor playground for children. 

The facility also will feature a public art component being created by Andrew Dufford.

D-FW is the nation's undisputed king of home construction in the latest ranking

 

1533828280-2q18ushomestarts.jpg?auto=for

 

With 36,264 home starts in the 12 months ending with the second quarter, D-FW far surpassed other big American housing markets for total production, according to a new report by housing analyst Metrostudy Inc.



D-FW builders are starting about 40 percent more homes than in the Atlanta and Phoenix metro areas and almost 70 percent more than in Denver.

D-FW home starts rose 12.7 percent annually in the just-released second-quarter housing comparison.

North Texas has been a leading U.S. housing market since the end of the Great Recession.

"We will continue to secure the top position for the next few years," said Metrostudy's regional director Paige Shipp. 

"During the past 12 months, we started 6,300 more new homes than Houston [the No. 2 U.S. market], and our growth pace is twice that of Houston.

What i just love about this data, is that Houston alone is almost on par with Dallas, Ft Worth, and Arlington combined. If 'DFW' was split into D, and FW, then we would be the clear winner.

 

I find it very Dallas for the report to exclaim that Dallas' growth is twice Houston's... However the city of Houston is growing and is truly the top city in Texas. Our centralized downtown and inner-loop area will be the most urban splash of land in Texas, and for that, I am happy.

The study compares metropolitan areas, not city limits.

Why must any news between both cities become such a massive d*ck swinging contest? It’s really childish. I’m a lifelong Houstonian and I believe both cities are equally great! Both offer and do things better than the other one. Both could learn a thing or two from each other. I find it very “Houston” to appear so insecure as to think a comparison of Dallas’ top ranking in growth to the next placed ranking, which just so happens to be Houston, as being so Dallas. The comparison to the second place ranking in the article would have likely been made regardless of whichever city it was.

Really, when it comes to insecurity, I find it very "Dallas". Besides why do think this thread even exist? It exist so that Sicky can brag about Dallas. It's not like he rushes to Haif to notify anyone of any of Dallas' many MANY short comings. When oil fully recovers and Houston tops Dallas on this list (AGAIN), just wait and see how long it gets posted on this thread.
