Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission approves permit for a new 17-story residential building at The Star in Frisco


The Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission approved a specific-use permit for one high-rise residential building at The Star in Frisco.

On June 20, Frisco City Council made an amendment to allow the development to have the high-rise building with the approval of an SUP upon meeting several conditions.

Requirements include a maximum of 160 urban living units in the building, a minimum building height of 17 stories and required parking for the building will need to be provided in a podium parking structure under the building.

The building will be located on southeast corner of Gaylord Parkway and Cowboys Way.

Commissioner Jon Kendall asked the applicant, a representative of Blue Star Retail, if there was any way to add a water feature to the building.

“That corner is just a cement block and it really is unfortunate, I don’t want it to be four corners of cement and I would love to see some type of water feature,” Kendall said.

The Blue Star representative said he would bring back the suggestion to his team but said he could not commit to placing a water feature without discussing it with his team.

The building will be one of several high-rises in the pipeline for Frisco.
