FROM MY PERSPECTIVE
Frisco is on the go.
There is a lot of exciting news coming out of one of the most beloved cities in North Texas — a place where our agents have long been known as the experts on homes, neighborhoods and lifestyles. Here are just some of the recent big reveals:
The new home of modern golf: Set to open in May, the Omni PGA Frisco Resort will be the new place for golfers of all ages and skill levels. It features two 18-hole championship courses, a 10-hole short course and a putting course, plus retail and dining. The resort will offer 500 rooms, 10 four-bedroom ranch houses to rent, four pools and a full-service spa.
The future home of family fun: Universal Parks & Resorts has announced a theme park [pictured at top of post] specifically designed for families with young children, with themed lands, interactive shows, character meet-and-greets and food-and-beverage venues. Part of 97 acres of land recently purchased by the company — east of the Tollway and north of Panther Creek Parkway — the park also has plans for an adjacent themed hotel.
A new home for a legendary university: The University of North Texas has opened at Frisco Landing, the first building on the UNT at Frisco campus. The state-of-the-art building has been designed to promote collaboration and open communication between the faculty and students.
A new home for you? We have a busy office in Plano that also serves Frisco, McKinney and all the great areas around them. Come explore them all at briggsfreeman.com and on our blog, at briggsfreeman.com/blog.
There has never been a better time to live in the north of North Texas — and I know just the people who can help make it happen for you.
