New Tower at Cowboys' Star in Frisco Will Have Luxury Condos

Frisco's city council has given preliminary approval for the construction of a luxury high-rise condo tower at the Dallas Cowboys' Star mixed-use project.The planned tower would be the first residential building in the 100-acre development at the northwest corner of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway. It would also be the first such high-rise in Frisco.Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones, former Cowboys' star quarterback Roger Staubach and developer Robert Shaw propose to build the condos."It will be a joint venture with the Jones family, Roger Staubach and myself," Shaw told the council "We are going to build a 17-story condo."The average unit size will be 1,200 square feet," he said. "These will be very large."Shaw said the building is still in the planning stage."Roger and Jerry will each have a unit on the top floor. We are basically building a place for Jerry and Roger to hang out," Shaw joked.He said the 150 to 160 residential units will also be aimed at empty nesters and "probably a few sponsors, a few players, a few coaches.""It will be a stunningly beautiful project," Shaw said. "We are trying to get started in January right after football season."Along with the Dallas Cowboys football team's headquarters and practice facility, the $1.5 billion Star in Frisco development project includes the 12,000-seat Ford Center athletic and event venue, a multi-tenant office building, a high-rise Omni Hotel, sports medical center, shops and restaurants.The Star condo tower would be one of several high-rise residential buildings in the pipeline along the tollway in Plano and Frisco.Currently there are two high-rise apartment buildings going up in Plano.The 29-story LVL29 tower is being built in Legacy West.
