The venue, called Eventi, will have two areas: The Loft, which will have 4,000 square feet of indoor space with a contemporary industrial feel, as well as The Patios, a 22,000-square-foot landscaped rooftop outdoor space with custom tent options, Young said.
Donny Churchman is the president and CEO of Nack Development, the developer of The Patios At The Rail. He said The Patios were designed with event space, knowing there was a high demand for these venues in Frisco.
“This entire time we were looking to see if we were going to run it ourselves or if we were going to find a group out there that maybe wanted to run it,” Churchman said.
Nack Development was familiar with Verona Villa and Young, so it made sense to partner together to manage the event spaces, Churchman said.
“I think we had a mutual respect for what each other was doing, and it made sense for us to come together and take over operations of that venue space as well as that rooftop park area,” Young said.
Eventi will be part of the Verona Villa Venues family and is the third venue location for the business, joining Verona Villa in Frisco and Alora in Plano, Young said.
In addition to private events, the space will also hold community events for people to purchase tickets and participate in, such as Oktoberfest or Movies in the Park, Young said.
“We are hoping to bring an awesome event space in downtown Frisco for people to celebrate important life events as well as producing community events for people to come hang out and have some family fun in The Rail District,” Young said.
A website for Eventi is under development, but it does have a Facebook page, and events can be booked now, Young said. More information can be found at [email protected] or by calling 972-837-8034.
