Nack Development submitted plans for The Patios at The Rail, which is under design for the southeast corner of S. County Road and Main Street, which is the former location of Double Dip Frozen Custard and the adjacent car wash that is still in operation.
The development is planned to include a parking garage.
Nack Development President Donny Churchman said he is excited about the project and it is time for the revitalization of downtown Frisco.
“We’re trying to create the rebirth of downtown, where people can go eat, shop and stay,” Churchman said.
Churchman said his focus on this project is to maintain historic downtown Frisco.
“With the bigger projects happening along the Dallas North Tollway, sometimes we forget what started this city and [what started it is] right here in old downtown Frisco,” he said.
Churchman said he has been working with the city since last year to bring this project forward.
He is set to present the downtown project to the Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission on April 11 and ask the commission to rezone the property to Old Town Commercial.
If P&Z and the City Council approve the project, Churchman said, then he expects to break ground in the fall.
Nack Development is working on developing other properties in downtown Frisco but has not finalized any plans.

2. New plans afoot for 356-acre mixed-use project at crossroads of US 380 and Dallas North Tollway
Developers are in the planning stages of a 356-acre, mixed-use project for the southwest corner of US 380 and the Dallas North Tollway.
The proposed development includes retail space, hotels, urban-living complexes, office space and a Cinemark Theatres movie house. The Cinemark theater has been planned since 2013 and is expected to open next year.
The land had been slated for another mixed-use development called Frisco North until the original developer pulled out of the project.
The current project plans have not gone before Frisco City Council or Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission for approval.
The plan for the development includes up to 7 million square feet of office space, 4 million square feet of retail space, 1,000 hotel rooms and 4,000 apartment units.
In 2012, the city of Frisco approved a public-private partnership agreement with Forest City Texas—a subsidiary of Cleveland-based Forest City Enterprises—for the mixed-use development called Frisco North at US 380 and the Dallas North Tollway. The development project was expected to include retail, residential, office, entertainment and hospitality components.
Forest City wrote off its $15 million investment in the project in 2013 because Frisco North was no longer an economically viable project for the company, according to J.B. Linton, Forest City senior vice president of corporate communications.
