Frisco Approves Plans For First Highrise A New 17story Residential Tower At Cowboys The Star

Image titleThe Frisco City Council has given preliminary approval for the construction of a luxury high-rise  tower at the Dallas Cowboys' Star mixed-use project.

The planned tower would be the first residential building in the 100-acre development at the northwest corner of Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway. It also would be the first such high-rise in Frisco.

The developers must still submit detailed plans to the city before they get final approvals to build the tower.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, legendary Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach and developer Robert Shaw propose building the rental condos.

"It will be a joint venture with the Jones family, Roger Staubach and myself," Shaw told the council. "We are going to build a 17-story condo.

"The average unit size will be 1,200 square feet," he said. "These will be very large."

Shaw said the building is in the planning stages.

"Roger and Jerry will each have a unit on the top floor. We are basically building a place for Jerry and Roger to hang out," Shaw joked.

He said the 150 to 160 residential units also will be aimed at empty nesters and "probably a few sponsors, a few players, a few coaches."

"We are trying to get started in January, right after football season," Shaw said. 

Along with the Cowboys' headquarters and practice facility, the $1.5 billion Star in Frisco development includes the 12,000-seat Ford Center athletic and event venue, a multi-tenant office building, a high-rise Omni Hotel, a sports medical center, shops and restaurants.

The Star condo tower would be one of several high-rise residential buildings in the pipeline along the tollway in Plano and Frisco. Two high-rise apartment buildings are going up in Plano.

The 29-story LVL 29 tower is being built in Legacy West. On the other side of the tollway near Legacy Drive, High Street Residential is building the 25-floor Residences at Legacy apartment project.

Next door to The Star in Frisco, developers of the Frisco Station mixed-use development also have filed preliminary plans for a 25-story residential tower.

Shaw is one of North Texas' most experienced multifamily housing developers, building apartments from Uptown to McKinney. His Columbus Realty is building more than 1,000 apartments in the $3 billion Legacy West development in Plano.

He's partnered with Staubach on many of his deals, including a 350-unit apartment project in West Dallas' Trinity Groves project on Singleton Boulevard.

More than a dozen high-rise residential buildings are under construction in the Dallas area.
