The project will be the centerpiece of a 91-acre mixed use development at the northwest corner of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway. It will feature a 12,000-seat indoor stadium and two outdoor fields that the Frisco Independent School District will use to host football and soccer games, as well as other athletic, academic, fine arts and entertainment events, and competitions. The Cowboys will hold training camp at least one week per year at the facility. The development will also include corporate offices, retail, restaurants and a luxury hotel.
The deal calls for the Cowboys to manage the facilities, any additional upgrades and pay for operating costs, which are estimated at $1.5 million a year. The project is expected to generate 4,500 new jobs at full development, with tax revenues of $1.26 billion. The estimated economic impact to the city of Frisco over the next 30 years is $23.4 billion.
Cowboys Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones was impressed with Frisco’s commitment to youth sports and noted the positive impact that professional facilities can have on a student’s confidence level. FISD Athletic Director David Kuykendall agreed, saying, “The memories that our students will make and take with them will last forever. It may motivate them to move on to the next level.”
This type of private-public partnership is just one reason why Frisco is a great place to live. When you buy a new home in Richwoods, your children will be able to attend Frisco schools, and take advantage of this new stadium, upon its completion in 2016. At that time, Frisco ISD will become the only school district in Texas to boast an indoor stadium.
Frisco schools are top-performers in the district, with small classes that focus on the individual academic needs of each student. The new state-of-the-art Vandeventer Middle School is adjacent to Landon Homes’ brand-new Richwoods Hollow community. The middle school serves grades six through eight, and features a curriculum that includes rigorous Pre-AP courses in science, geometry and integrated language arts.
Richwoods Hollow offers the best in gated master planned living. You can choose from homes of varying sizes on rear entry homesites. Current plans call for amenities such as trails, a clubhouse with fitness center, a resort-style pool, parks and playgrounds.
