Frisco: Stonebriar Centre mall

Postby jrd1964 » 09 May 2018 19:17

The latest addition to Frisco's major mall will be a Hyatt Regency hotel. It will be 15 stories tall with 295 rooms and 50,000 square feet of meeting space, and connect directly to the mall between Nordstrom and Dillard's. No construction or completion timeline was given.

It looks great! I vaguely remember some early articles about this hotel was that it was supposed to be completed in 2019... Not sure about that now. Maybe 2020?

Some notes: Broke ground today May 9th, 2018 and Is expected to be complete in the first quarter 2020.

That hotel will be the best looking piece of that mall. Stonebriar looks awful.

I KNOW! Stonebriar is LONG overdue for an exterior and interior makeover... The entire look and feel is so tacky and awful, for being one of the best performing malls in the country Im surprised they havent modernized or updated it by now... a shame.

So, what is their incentive to make updates when you are one of the best performing malls in the country?

It doesn't matter to me I will just go to NorthPark anyway cause its walkways are cleaner and the design is much more classic vs Stonebriar which tends to be just like any other mall with ads on every surface and the corridors are very mall like. I think this Hotel is a great addition though and wish NorthPark was doing the same already.

That's kind of the problem because they don't feel like they need to make any changes since business is booming. I just wish they would give Stonebriar a more timeless look, as someone who lives by Stonebriar mall, I don't have an incentive to stay there longer than I need to be due to the crowds and because it's not really visually interesting or appealing to walk around and observe. I always find myself spending much more time in Northpark because of how beautiful and serene the atmosphere is...

Agreed, I have wondered about a hotel at NP as well. Seems long overdue and would be a nice addition to the center.

Man, that south-facing facade at Stonebriar looks like it's straight out of Looney Tunes.

Glad to see the hotel is going up. I wonder if the next evolution for malls like this one and Willow Bend (and others that won't just be torn down) is some Frankenstein-ian move of bolting on different amenities and destinations. Obviously Willow Bend has their Victory Plaza-esque thing going in, so that could be the way they try to keep up with the likes of Legacy West.

It's probably like cars, homes, office buildings ... somebody in an ivory tower somewhere thinks it looks good then, so let's throw it together already, without thinking of how it will look later. Some stuff ages well, others, not so much.

I didn't understand it myself. It was kind of "look at me, look at me, I have more signs than the other malls". With most malls, you see signs for the anchors and the mall itself, and that's it. I guess the addition of the Hyatt will make it stand out in a different way now.

I think it just looks like a mall, but then again I've never understood what people see in Northpark architecturally. So I may be an outlier.

According to this hotel-industry magazine article, the Hyatt Regency at the mall is still set to open next year. The construction/skeleton has topped out, and will still be 18 stories tall.

In the article, was this unrelated (but interesting) note: there will be a 3000 square foot branch of Frisco's Public Library at Stonebriar, accessible from both the hotel and the mall.

This is somewhat surprising considering the fact their Legacy West store is less than 5 minutes away and is always packed.

If they wanted to have two stores in such a close radius of each other, they should have kept the Shops at Legacy store open instead of relocating.

They probably figure they'll get better foot traffic in Stonebriar.

They need to. Stonebriar literally feels like walking into a giant Walmart.

These came out a couple of years ago, maybe even 3 now... I think one tiny part of the mall has had some work done (that appears to be part of this plan, at least based on me tying the renovations to these plans based on the materials/style used)... Maybe a test..?

Anyways, could be wrong, but I feel like they're gonna sit on the reno plans for a hot minute, especially since a recession will lessen spending and affect business. However, it is Frisco, so...

I could also see them waiting and using this as a "trick up their sleeve" depending on how successful retail in the 1.42M new developments in/around Fields (PGA HQ). The Lesso mall is no longer happening, but I could see somebody coming in, grabbing some land up there, and pitching a "mixed-use" mall similar to those plans. Definitely think it'd be on the higher end though considering Frisco/Prosper border.

Yep, and opened its doors in June 2020. Think they had some sort of grand opening in 2021, but been open for over 2 years now.

Oh wow, I had no idea Victoria's Secret closed its Legacy West location... When did that happen? And maybe I'm just dumb, but that's incredibly surprising.

Their Willow Bend store closed around the same time, too. I wonder if they’re generally consolidating stores or if something else is going on.

Did a bit of research on Stonebriar store sizes, and it appears that Anthropologie took over part of the former Abercrombie & Fitch space. According to their TDLR permit, the store's size is 10,114 Sq. Feet, so about 6,000 square feet of store space is in the Nordstrom wing, and the additional 4,000 is from the old Abercrombie. This means the 4,500 sq. feet needed for the new Lululemon will probably be from the remainder of the A&F space. They also have wallboarded the old Michael Kors which might mean a new tenant coming soon, as Stonebriar rarely covers up vacant spots unless their under construction.
