Frisco Texas Music City
The Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission approved a specific-use permit for a 7-acre entertainment venue called Music City on the east side of the Dallas North Tollway.
The project will have a 1,002-seat indoor theater, 390-seat outdoor stage, and a restaurant. According to city documents, the facility will host concerts, movies, wine festivals and theater productions.
The property is currently located on the east side of the DNT just north of McCandless Way and is just south of the $2 billion Wade Park mixed-use development, which is now facing foreclosure.
City staff recommended approval of the request pointing out that the facility would be an appropriate use for this location and is compatible with the city’s future land use plan. City staff also said the facility would not negatively affect the surrounding uses.
Overall, commissioners said they liked the design of the project and believe it complements what Frisco has to offer.
Commission Chairman pointed out in a meeting that this venue does not replace the plans for a potential performing arts center.
Request for a permit will go before City Council for final approval.
