Plans for hundreds of home lots and a network of trails were unveiled during a sneak peak of the Fields development in Frisco.

Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney presented an update on the Fields development Nov. 2, complete with lot plans and a list of builders for two village subdivisions during the update presentation held at the Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco.

The Fields development will feature more than 2,500 acres of master-planned development. Frisco City Council approved rezoning of more than 2,100 acres of the Fields land in 2020, while another 400 acres were sold for the PGA headquarters.

More than 230 home lots are planned for the first phase of construction in The Preserve village and each home will be custom-built, Cheney said. A ridge runs through the middle of the neighborhood with sites set about 25 to 35 feet above the homes below.

Keeping the natural topography in a custom neighborhood is rewarding and adds a unique feature to the village, Cheney said.

“It’s going to feel very California-esque,” he said. “You’ve got the hillside homes that have these 30-mile views.”

About 490 lots in the Brookside village will be delivered to builders in early 2023 as part of the first phase, Cheney said. The neighborhood will feature a variety of lot sizes with several small pocket parks throughout. Smaller parks are a new standard when designing neighborhoods, Cheney said, because those can be spread out in the neighborhood.

Cheney also touched on the Fields West village, presenting the master plan for the 180-acre subdivision that will be built east of Brookside. The village is the next version of Legacy West, a “Legacy West 2.0,” Cheney said.

“If you ask the people of Legacy West if they had one thing to do over again, the thing that they would say is, ‘We wish we would have put open space into Legacy West,’” Cheney said.

Legacy West is a mixed-use development in Plano. It was developed by Karahan Cos., which is also developing Fields Frisco.

The entire Fields development will feature a network of more than 25 miles of trails throughout. Residents will be able to walk or bike from one village to another with the trail system, Cheney said.

“You can have it both ways,” he said. “You can have the benefits of having a walkable community, that urban feel; be able to go to shopping, restaurants, all those different types of things; walk back home; and then have your suburban-filled neighborhoods.”
