All kinds of homes are coming around PGA Frisco. Here’s where you could live

Mitchell Parton

The first of thousands of homes in the 2,500-acre community are under construction now.

There, Karahan will develop Fields West as part of the much larger 2,500-acre Fields development underway by Hunt Realty Investments.

Both developments lie just west of the Dallas North Tollway in their respective cities. Legacy West has an urban mixed-use village developed by Karahan at its core, and so will Fields West.

The Fields West project in Frisco will look a whole lot like Legacy West in Plano, Karahan said. Only bigger.

How much bigger? The Dallas Business Journal asked Karahan in a recent interview to compare the size and scope of Legacy West and Fields West.

This is what he said:

The answer is yes. Fields West is bigger than Legacy West. So what does that mean?

Legacy West covers, in general, 240 acres. That includes Toyota’s headquarters, the JP Morgan Chase regional campus, Liberty Mutual, the mixed-use, the hotel, the multiple residential components, Windrose condo tower and all of that.

Most people refer to Legacy West’s mixed-use component where you go to Del Frisco’s (steakhouse), the Food Hall, and all that. When you look at the Legacy West mixed-use village, with Renaissance Hotel and the Food Hall, that is a total of 34 acres.

The Fields West project – talking about specifically the mixed-use village just to make apple-to-apple comparisons – is 55 acres. And it encompasses two hotels instead of one of them. Legacy West has Renaissance (hotel), and Fields West has two hotels. So that’s the acreage comparison.

Now, if you look at the entire Fields development, we have 2,500 acres. So in summary, Fields West is 55 acres in the heart — in the center — of the entire 2,500-acre Fields project.

Between golf courses, a resort, and a theme park, Frisco’s 2,500-acre Fields development is sure to draw sports fans and families from across the nation. It’s home to the new PGA of America headquarters and golf resort and is also the site of the recently announced Universal Parks and Resorts theme park.

But many others will call the monumental project home.

Fields, which stretches between Preston Road and U.S. Highway 380, could include as many as 14,000 homes, from apartments and townhomes to million-dollar homes, in addition to its commercial space and tourism attractions.

The development team includes Dallas-based Hunt Realty and developer Fehmi Karahan, who was behind Legacy West in Plano. The developers purchased the site in 2018 ahead of the reveal that PGA would be coming to town.

Other nearby projects will provide even more housing. Dallas-based Stillwater Capital is developing The Link, a $1 billion development across PGA Parkway from the resort that will include apartments and other rental homes.

Here is a look at what is on the way for the community.

Brookside South

Construction has kicked off on the first homes in Fields. Huntington Homes, a brand of Plano-based Highland Homes, formally broke ground in February in Fields’ Brookside South neighborhood, where it plans to build 42 homes.

Huntington hasn’t finalized pricing for the community, but Highland president Aaron Graham said the average price will likely be just over $2 million.

More than 500 potential buyers have expressed interest in the project since last year, he said in February, adding that the model home will be open for tours in June.

Other builders in Brookside South include Britton Homes, Darling Homes, Olivia Clarke Homes, Shaddock Homes and Toll Brothers, according to the Fields website, which has contact information for each company.

Brookside North and East Village

In December, entities tied to North Texas homebuilder and developer John Landon of Landon Homes bought 278 acres in two residential subdivisions of Fields: Brookside North and East Village.

On Dec. 5, Landon completed his purchase of 363 lots across 104 acres in Fields’ Brookside North subdivision southwest of Fields Parkway and Legacy Drive to build homes under his luxury brand. In a separate deal that closed Dec. 22, Landon acquired 870 lots on 174 acres in East Village on the other side of the Dallas North Tollway. That site has smaller lots, some of which will include townhomes.

“They’ll be smaller homes but still very high-quality, high-design houses,” Landon said in December.

The Preserve

The crown jewel of Fields’ residences is The Preserve, a roughly 270-acre neighborhood between the PGA’s golf courses and Legacy Drive that’s likely to showcase some of the most expensive homes in North Texas.

The developers expect construction of homes costing up to $15 million to start in fall 2024. While commitments for home sites are being signed, buyers are yet to close on their homes.

The first phase of The Preserve is on about 175 acres, with 233 high-end homes from 10 custom homebuilders.

Jeff Cheney, Frisco’s mayor and a real estate broker, is in on the action. He estimated his firm has committed about 30 clients to lots. The additional 95 acres will have roughly an additional 150 homes.

Just the land under each home will range in price from $450,000 to $2.5 million, Hunt vice president Todd Watson told The Dallas Morning News. Even with the steep price tag, buyers are clamoring to get into a neighborhood that will offer a bird’s eye view of pro golf tournaments.
