    Frisco city council members approved a zoning change Tuesday night that will allow for a housing development unlike anything ever built before in North Texas.

    Total Environment, a developer from India, has plans to build a community of high-end homes that feature roofs covered with grass and native plants.

    Plans for the development, located on 55 acres of vacant land along Independence Parkway just north of Rolator Road, include 122 houses and a series of walking trails. Only 23 of the 55 acres – less than half – will be built upon.

    The houses would be expensive, with price points starting at $900,000.

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    The land had previously been zoned as agricultural.
