The new 230-acre mixed-use development at the corner of Dallas North Tollway and Highway 380 is scheduled to break ground next year. Firefly Park will include 4.75 million square feet of commercial office space and 2,200 luxury residential mid- and high-rise buildings. About 380,000 square feet of retail space will include a music hall and outdoor amphitheater. The master plan includes a creek park and nature preserve with miles of hike-and-bike trails and multiple water features.
The first anchor announced for the destination will be a Dream Hotel. It will include a rooftop pool and bar, fitness center and four different food and beverage offerings. Developer Kyle Wilks says the Frisco Dream will set the standard for the project, saying it…”will provide a hospitality experience unlike any other in the market today and will bring the vibrancy and entertainment of Firefly Park to a whole new level.”
