Frisco developer breaks ground on second downtown building | Real Estate | Dallas News
A developer who’s building a series of small projects in Frisco’s historic downtown area has broken ground on a second building.
Tenants that have signed up for the building include Honour Espresso, a café from Australia opening its first U.S. location, Texana design company, Tumbleweed TexStyles creative craft workshop, Brookielynn’s Bungalow, J&K Children’s Supply and a luxury boutique gift shop.
Makers Gym, a creative coworking space, will also locate in the project.
Nack Development has already started work on its first downtown Frisco project, a residential and commercial building called the Tower at the Rail.
“The vision for the Rail District redevelopment is now here and coming to life in a way that is all part of enhancing the downtown with a brand-new mix of live, work and play projects,” Churchman said in a statement. “It is so fulfilling to not only see the progress that is happening, but to know that we have so many people, from investors, to the mayor, current merchants and fellow Frisco residents, who are sharing in the support and excitement.”
Nack Development’s investors in the Frisco projects include former Major League Baseball All-Star Torii Hunter and his wife Katrina as well as current Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp.
The developer is still working on plans in downtown for the North Texas Performing Arts’ Frisco Youth Theater, called The Nack
Theater. Another planned building called the Calaboose will include townhomes and more office space.
“Mr. Churchman and Nack Development have the right vision for our historic downtown,” Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney said in a statement. “I am specifically looking forward to The Patios completion.
“It is innovative in its design and will be one of the premier properties in Frisco’s downtown.”
