Frisco STYLE Magazine Article: Moving On Up!
In a recent Frisco STYLE Magazine article, Frisco Chamber of Commerce President/CEO had the opportunity to share his views on the new verticle landscape of Frisco and what it will mean in attracting a diversified residential base and workforce.
To say the landscape of Frisco has changed over the years would be an understatement of epic proportions. While Frisco continues to be one of the top destination cities in the country, we are not only expanding outward, but we are also moving residents upward!
A quick drive down the Dallas North Tollway (DNT) illuminates the development of the most recent structural additions to our area – high-rise residential buildings. These new living areas are bringing an entirely new dynamic to Frisco, which is already home to a variety of families of all shapes and sizes who live in single-family homes, apartments and townhomes. With the addition of these new high-rise residential buildings, families and singles alike have a dynamic living area to consider. Frisco residents might not immediately feel the impact from this innovative change, but there are many things to consider, like the impact on property taxes, the Frisco ISD and traffic. City leadership is preparing for such residential additions and first responders are excited and welcoming of the challenge of conquering new heights (literally)! Twelve Cowboys Way, SkyHouse Frisco Station and LVL29 are new local residential high-rise living developments planting roots in our area. With the help of residents, city leadership and emergency response personnel, this vertical expansion will undoubtedly be an additional catalyst for change and growth.
Tony Felker, the president and CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, says, “These new residential developments help take Frisco to the next level in terms of providing our residents, as well as people moving to the area, additional options and choices in where and how they live. Many today (both young and old), want less maintenance, more convenience and to be located in the ‘hub’ of things. As the community develops, we want a broad and diversified residential base and workforce, and these new developments provide an alternative for those that prefer this sort of housing option.” Read more.
