JVP has been given a thumbs-up from the Frisco Planning & Zoning Commission to move forward on The Mix. The 112-acre project will be in place of what used to be Wade Park, a failed development.
The Dallas Business Journal reports the new design plans for The Mix call for approximately 2 million square feet of office space, 375,000 square feet of retail, two hotels, for-sale townhomes, and urban living units. The Mix will be built around a 9-acre central park and include more than 16 acres of green open space.
The first phase of The Mix includes 28 acres, roughly 100,000 total square feet of retail space including a 40,000-square-foot-grocer, a 120,000-square-foot medical office building, urban living units, and part of the central park. Construction for phase one is expected to be completed in about three years.
The construction site is on the southeast corner of Dallas Parkway and Lebanon Road. The City Council still has to give final approval.
