Frisco: Fields Ranch development

Postby itsjrd1964 » 07 Aug 2018 20:30

The large tract (outlined in red) has just sold to Hunt Realty Investments and is planned for a proposed mixed-use development. The article mentions the possible relocation of the PGA as a potential part of the project. The total area spans over 2500 acres in size, and is billed as the largest undeveloped tract in Frisco.

They've certainly got the backing of the regions big money and big planners.

Yeah and Frisco is not about to let the chance of scoring the PGA HQ and most likely take the Byron Nelson away from Dallas eventually because of it. At least the Trinity Golf Course could become a park for public access instead of a private golf course like it is now.

So many ideas and thoughts whirring in my head for this place, I'll throw them out just for the sake of discussion:

- I think what excites me most about this project is that Fehmi Karahan is going to be involved... Plus at this point, I could say with certainty that PGA will be moving its headquarters somewhere in here.
Also hearing that they are doing something "Big and Exciting" by such big names has me on the edge of my seat for this one... Hope they mean it. Although the only mentions of zoning are common terms such as "commercial buildings, offices, retail, single-family and multifamily homes" I really hope they push the boundaries on these and try things that have never been done before especially with all that space. As for Education? Did they mean the UNT Frisco Satellite Campus or is that somewhere else?

- Hopefully, the single-family neighborhood is more modern and up-to-date in architecture to match the new Lesso Mall which is being built nearby.

- Creating a major destination is mentioned too, Perhaps in the tract somewhere, a rival much bigger and one that solves all the problems of Plano's Legacy West will rise from these rolling hills and farmland.

- Also I know this is a long shot but I hope they try a more touristy/international destination/one of a kind type of thing, with all that space it would be a shame if they just put a giant single-family neighborhood and then packed an urban center somewhere... I want something like what Grandscape is doing! a small residential neighborhood and a HUGE one of a kind shopping/retail destination that you can't find anywhere else in the U.S. or (if they're really bold) the world.

-Also everything better be walkable. All 2,500+ acres of it. Give us programmed parks in the middle of a giant urban center, Give us an urban center with absolutely no roads, only autonomous shuttles and a giant Uber/hyperloop Beehive in the center to travel in and out of it, Give us the reason to leave our car at home and be able to take a walk reasonably around all of it. Oh and Give us engaging nightclubs and a reason to stay up till past 1am on any day of the week...

lets discuss,

I doubt all of that. They will make the area 5G ready with AT&T and maybe some bike share around a suburban park trail they would likely integrate into the project. Probably some sculpture too.

Yeah I'm pretty skeptical that it will be anything that's too earth shattering. We shall see, but I'd think it will likely be much of the same of what's up there now.

And that 'engaging nightclubs' thing? Won't happen till Frisco quits having the no-more-drinking-and-clubs-after-midnight mentality every time there is an election. They keep giving 2 hours of potential revenue away every night to Plano and other cities. It's almost as bad as Arlington's anti-transit irritation, but oh well. But, surely, there's some good potential in some way or another, with 2500 acres to work with. Turning it all into a pretentious urban heat island won't do anyone any good.

Personally, I think alcohol serving businesses should be allowed to stay open 24-7-365 if they have customers and want to.... but the turn-in early sentimentality always seems to go hand-in-hand with the exurban edge and deep into the suburban body. Let it go as slow as it wants, whatever, it's not for me, but it surely is for the majority in Dallas' northern burbs.

I haven't gone drinking in Frisco in so long its embarrassing (that I'm old) but according to online most places stay open until 1-2:00am, so they either allow it or must be granting variances like they are candy.

perhaps. I wish they would try something new and out of the box though. It'd be a great place to try something different up there with all that space.

PGA of America gives updated timeline on forthcoming Frisco HQ move

https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... -move.html

Unless another act of god like COVID-19 occurs, the PGA of America’s new headquarters could deliver ahead of schedule, PGA COO Darrell Crall told the Dallas Business Journal Tuesday. However, not everything on the project will deliver on time.

The PGA is setting its sights on an August groundbreaking for its new 100,000-square-foot headquarters building, which is set to bring at least 100 jobs from Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., to Frisco. It could even deliver ahead of its June 2022 timeline, said Crall.

“We're all dealing with a brave new world in so many different ways, and the PGA of America is certainly among those that are. However, (we) remain incredibly bullish about PGA Frisco, and while we have been modestly delayed with the beginning of construction, we are now forecasted to break ground in mid-August and complete the project well in advance of June 2022,” Crall said.

Progress photo from the Fields IG account of the Omni Resort & the PGA courses. Going to try to go by again this weekend to fly the drone and take some more photos myself because the land truly is beautiful. If y'all want to see let me know.

1M-SF office campus? Developer of The Link in Frisco discusses corporate activity, planned amenities of $1 billion project

https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... pital.html

Next year could be a particularly exciting one for Frisco. The delivery of PGA of America's new headquarters? Check. The opening of two new championship golf courses? Check. The announcement of a 1 million-square-foot corporate relocation? To be determined.

Last week, Dallas-based Stillwater Capital announced The Link, a 240-acre, $1 billion mixed-use project located next to the future PGA Frisco development, of which Stillwater is also a partner. The Link will include 2.5 million square feet of office space; 400,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space; more than 2,000 residential units including both condos and apartments; and a boutique hotel. Among the planned office space will be room for a 1 million-square-foot campus, Stillwater says.

So this looks to be one of the first parts of Fields to break ground aside from the PGA HQ. This project, "North Fields," will be a roughly 175-acre mixed-use chunk built around a lake. Fehmi Karahan, who I'm sure you all know is behind Legacy & now this project, compared this to Legacy Town Center.

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/real-estate/2021/07/29/urban-mixed-use-project-will-anchor-north-end-of-friscos-huge-fields-development/

This is directly south of 380, north of the PGA HQ (as you can see in the render. What's interesting to me (and maybe I'm reading too deeply into this, so let me know if I am) is the lack of any of the previous "Fields City Center" towers/core in this render. It definitely shows "The Preserve," which is the neighborhood where the high-end homes overlooking the golf course will be. But at least according to the plans/renders for the main chunk of Fields in the past, the city center would be just on the other side of that (where the highest density office/resi would be).

Maybe I'm reading too deeply into this as I said, but I think it's interesting that none of that is shown here.

There are actually several developments planned for this area, you have The Fields as mentioned above, and also The Links which has already received approval.

If this area can attract a couple of corporate clients, perhaps even a Fortune 500 company, look out!

Ideally from out of state (or specifically outside of DFW) and not just from another part of the Metroplex.

Oh yeah, I'm familiar with The Link and many of the other developments/developers that are scrambling to grab any land in the area lol. Actually used to work with some people who're part of Stillwater Capital. Just find it odd how the core of Fields isn't shown in this render considering you're looking essentially due south. Also, North Fields is really just a subdistrict/section of the entire Fields project if I remember correctly, and being that this is all Karahan/KDC/Hunt, that's why I'm so surprised.

Frisco is getting a Ritz...
And the first portion of the "core" of Fields is set to break ground with this project.
Legacy West developer Fehmi Karahan is teaming up with Hunt Realty Investments to build a 180-acre mixed-use project on the Dallas North Tollway near PGA of America’s new headquarters. It will be part of Frisco’s more than 2,500-acre Fields development.

Called Fields West, the project at Panther Creek Parkway and tollway will include 325,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space, 2,800 apartments, more than 4 million square feet of offices and three hotels.

The Fields West developers have just inked an agreement with Marriott International Inc. for a Ritz-Carton Hotel.

The developers hope to open the first phase of the project in late 2024.

“We are now going in full speed with this development,” Karahan said.

The just-completed agreement with Marriott is a major accomplishment, he said. “The Ritz-Carlton will be the first five-star hotel in the northern section of D-FW.”

Why can't we get a different 5-star flagship hotel for once? :x
