The Star in Frisco
The Star in Frisco is a $1.5 billion, multi-use development located on 91 acres of the $5 Billion Mile along the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco, Texas. The project includes office space, restaurants, shops, a hotel, a medical center, and more. The centerpiece of this development is a 25-acre complex featuring The Ford Center at The Star, a 12,000-seat indoor multipurpose events center, and the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters.
Designed to be the most comprehensive NFL training facility and headquarters, The Star in Frisco was developed via a public-private partnership between the Dallas Cowboys, the City of Frisco, and Frisco Independent School District. The Ford Center is shared by the Dallas Cowboys and Frisco ISD’s eight high schools, hosting a multitude of events including Cowboys’ practice, high school football games, soccer matches, marching band competitions, and much more.
Kimley-Horn has been involved with The Star since initial project planning. To date, the Kimley-Horn team has worked with the project architect, the City of Frisco, and the Owner to provide civil design on each phase of the project along with the design of more than 12,000 linear feet of roadway and associated infrastructure. Additional services provided by the Kimley-Horn team included survey, preliminary engineering, drainage studies, traffic studies, shared parking analyses, franchise utility coordination, landscape architecture, and construction administration.
