FRISCO – Called the Railhead, the 80-acre building tract is just south of Frisco's Wakeland High School.
Development plans for the property on the west side of the tollway show almost two dozen buildings constructed around a central park.
Office buildings, a hotel and retail would occupy most of the land closest to the tollway.
Urban residential buildings and smaller office buildings are planned for the west side of the project, according to details provided Frisco's planning department.
The planned central greenspace would be twice the size of downtown Dallas' Klyde Warren Park.
A 250,000-sf, ten-story office building is being designed at the tollway entry into the project.
A 50,000-sf wellness center has been designed to share the parking garage featuring several tennis court on the top floor.
More than 1,200 urban residential units are proposed for the Railhead project.
The Railhead development site is just north of Frisco's much touted $5 billion mile—a stretch of major developments including the Dallas Cowboys' Star complex, Frisco Station, the Gate and Wade Park.
