Frisco Set to Add Thousands of Homes
The Fields 2,500-acre development along the tollway is the city’s biggest pending project. The property stretches from Preston Road across the tollway and all the way north to U.S. Highway 380.
After months of planning, Frisco City Council has gotten its first look at plans for the $12.7 billion project which includes 10,000 homes and up to 18 million square feet of commercial space.
A 480-acre section of the project has already been sold for the PGA of America’s new headquarters, two golf courses, and an Omni resort hotel.
The developers named the enormous mixed-use project after the land’s previous owners. The Fields family began buying up property in Collin County north of the sleepy farm town of Frisco in the 1950s and 1960s. For decades, it was used for a cattle ranch.
Now it’s the most extensive undeveloped section of Frisco, one of the country’s fastest-growing communities.
The new owners hired New York and San Francisco-based land planning firm Hart Howerton to do a plan for the Fields project.
Last week the developers previewed the work for Frisco government leaders.
