On Tuesday night the Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission approved a new mixed-use development that will bring a large fitness center and office and retail buildings.

The 36-acre property is located north of Main Street and west of Dallas Parkway. The property was originally zoned to allow for a data center in 2014; however the property was never developed.

Frisco Development Services Director John Lettelleir said since 2014 three different data center developers have looked at the site and said it was not large enough for their needs. Now the property owner is looking to sell the property.

The property owner requested that the property now be zoned to accommodate a retail, restaurant and office development focused around a 124,000-square-foot Lifetime Fitness. The plans include three office buildings and two retail/restaurant buildings. Residential was not proposed.

According to city documents, the building within the development will be designed according to the city’s Original Town Commercial design standards similar to the nearby development The Rail to the north and Frisco Market Center to the south.

Within the request two sub districts were proposed—Tollway District and Legacy District.

The Tollway District will be the central location for retail and restaurant uses fronting a central open space feature, according to city staff. The commission amended the request to include a 25-story height limitation.

The Legacy District will include the Lifetime Fitness facility, which will include two pools and 12 tennis courts, according to plans submitted to the city. The sub district will have an amenitized detention pond that also serves as a portion of the development’s open space.
