The Frisco City Council on Tuesday approved a zoning ordinance amendment and a rezoning request for Frisco Station.
Frisco Station is a mixed-use development located on the southwest intersection of John Hickman Parkway and Dallas Parkway and north of Warren Parkway.
The applicant was requesting to modify the design standards to define street section standards for Warren Parkway, Dallas Parkway and Lebanon Road, as well as a comprehensive sign package, for the next buildings.
Project officials and members of the Stonebriar Park homeowners association, who live south of Warren Parkway, met multiple times over the last few weeks to discuss resident concerns, such as lighting on an existing building, setback concerns and screening along Warren Parkway.
Mayor Pro Tem Will Sowell thanked the development team for working with the homeowners.
“That's very much appreciated and certainly within the spirit of the partnership we're looking for in the city of Frisco,” Sowell said.
Mike Strand, a member of the Stonebriar Park Board of Directors, praised the development team for working with the residents. He said going forward, the city needs to be mindful of future buildings where residents are in close proximity. He noted the vacant land owned by Baylor Scott & White Medical-Frisco near Stonebriar Park. He said that land is zoned for a building up to 12 stories.
“We ask that the city be very careful in adhering to the comprehensive plan,” Strand said. “I know there are a lot of rules and regulations here, but this area we're going to be watching as a homeowner group very closely.”
Once complete, the 242-acre Frisco Station is expected to include corporate office towers, office space, campus commercial, hotels, parks and trails, a mix of residential options and health and wellness options. Those will all be attached to The Hub, which will include dining, shopping, entertainment and events.
West End Trails
The council approved the rezoning of 35 acres on the southwest corner of Teel Parkway and Lebanon Road to single-family 8.5 (minimum lot size of 8,500 square feet) for West End Trails residential project.
The rezoning will allow for approximately 75 lots.
Previously, the project had come before the city with more dense residential options, including patio homes and single-family 8.5. But residents in the nearby Lone Star Ranch neighborhood were concerned with the density, and the Planning and Zoning Commission denied the request.
