The Forum at Wade Park Will Give Frisco Its First “Live-Work-Play” Community

By September 24, 2015February 22nd, 2021Judi's Blog

As a local realtor, I am proud to market residential properties in the city of Frisco, Texas. I realize that I am not just selling a home to each family. I am actually showcasing an entire community that provides turnkey conveniences and amenities to families with a variety of retail and mixed use outlets, all within a short drive of your front door.

I am pleased to apprise you of the exciting commercial and residential real estate developments that are opening or are planned for the not-too-distant future. These creatively planned and built locations could significantly enhance your quality of life here in Frisco.

Homebuyers and residents in central Frisco – bordered by Preston Road and the Dallas North Tollway, and State Highway 121 and Main Street — have the distinction of being within just a few miles of the Dallas Cowboys’ soon-to-be-completed 91-acre headquarters, The Star in Frisco at the northwest corner of Warren Parkway and The Tollway. The Star, which has passed the halfway pole in its construction plan, is part of the city’s well-publicized $5 Billion Mile.


For example, Frisco Station will include a combination of corporate office towers, shopping and entertainment plazas, mid-rise apartments, medical facilities and other buildings that will surround the Cowboys’ new Star project on three sides. Frisco Station is planned as a dense, urban-style development similar to the State Farm Insurance CityLine complex under construction in Richardson and the Legacy West complex planned for Plano.


Another major attraction within Frisco’s $5 Billion Mile will be The Forum at Wade Park, located at the southeast corner of The Tollway and Lebanon Road. This 175-acre mixed-use creation from Georgia-based developer Thomas Land & Development LLC provides Frisco with its first “live-work-play” center. The development will be anchored by a 45,000 square foot Whole Foods Market retail store, which offers a large selection of natural and organic products.


The Forum will be one of the area’s foremost developments, merging approximately 600,000 square feet of high end retail space with up to three million square feet of commercial office space. The development will also offer more than 1,300 multi-family residential units and 127 Charleston-style single family homes that include luxury amenities and elite-level concierge services.

The local skyline will take on a striking look with the 35-story Langham Hotels & Resorts property. The hotelier’s first Texas location will open in 2018 at The Tollway and Lebanon Road. Plans call for 250 rooms in a 35-story high rise that will also include residential units. A pedestrian bridge will link the hotel to a planned office tower and an iPic theater.


In addition, Hotel ZaZa has committed its second property to north Texas at The Forum, offering 175 luxury guest rooms, including 10 signature one-of-a-kind suites. The hotel will offer 10,000 square feet of meeting and function space, a pool with bars and cabanas, a restaurant, a 1,000-square foot fitness center, and a ZaSpa location. The hotel will be located along the main street of The Forum’s retail village. A third hotel, offering upscale limited services, will be introduced in the near-future.

Restaurants that have committed to The Forum include The Rustic outdoor patio, bar and restaurant, Torchy’s Tacos, Steel City Pops gourmet popsicle shop, Bread Zepplin featuring a salad-in-baguette style menu, and Thirteen Pies wood-fired pizza.

In addition, Arhaus Furniture is planning a 15,000-square foot store, and beauty shop tenants will include MiniLuxe, Aveda Salon, Elle & K Boutique, and The Lash Lounge. Pinstripe Bowling and iPic Theaters will provide entertainment venues.
