New renderings were released last week for The Star in Frisco, the multiuse Dallas Cowboys development on the northwest corner of Warren Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway.
The renderings show retail spaces surrounding two five-story parking garages. A main road that leads to the Cowboys world headquarters and events center separates the garages.
Street level parking is also included in the renderings.
Architect Sean O'Brien said he wanted the development to have a timeless look.
"We don't want to do any sort of time stamping, meaning any sort of elements that are going to be outdated 10 years from now, 15 years from now," he said. "A lot of those retail developments you see nowadays have kind of catchy designs to them."
The exterior of the buildings will have smooth limestone with wood and metal accents, O'Brien said. Much of the design was focused on the pedestrian level of the development.
"We really wanted to be a nice framework for tenants to exist within [the development] so that they can express their brand without going overboard," O'Brien said.
O'Brien said he wanted to bring a fresh look to the city.
"It's a little bit of a departure from Frisco's town square," he said. "Frisco's town square is very traditional and timeless, but this is just another version of architecture that's timeless."
The 91-acre development includes the publicly funded events center and more than 178,000 square feet of retail space. It is expected to open by late 2016.
