Urban mixed-use project will anchor north end of Frisco’s huge Fields development
The North Fields urban village complex is planned on the south side of U.S. Highway 380.
Frisco’s huge new Fields community will have 5,000 single-family homes and thousands of apartments.
But there’s more to the big Denton County development than just residential.
On U.S. Highway 380 at the north end of the 2,500-acre project, there are plans for an urban-style mixed-use project with office, retail, commercial and high-density housing. Called North Fields, the development on the south side of U.S. 380 will be more than 175 acres.
“There isn’t anything like it along 380,” said developer Fehmi Karahan, one of the partners in the $10 billion Fields project. “We’ll build a real village feel.”
Designs for the project by architect Gensler show more than a dozen buildings in the project, which will be just north of the PGA of America’s new headquarters.
The low and mid-rise buildings will be constructed around a small lake.
“It’s the equivalent in size to Legacy Town Center” in Plano, Karahan said.
Karahan was the developer of the Legacy Town Center mixed-use project on the Dallas North Tollway and the even larger more than $3 billion Legacy West development across the tollway.
The North Fields mixed-use project is one of several commercial districts planned in the Frisco community.
The largest and tallest of the commercial buildings are to be constructed in the heart of the project along the tollway.
But Karahan Cos. is moving ahead on the North Fields tract because it’s next to the new PGA complex.
“We think we can target some PGA-related businesses,” Karahan said. “This is far more advanced because of the 380 frontage.”
The Fields development is one of North Texas’ largest and most elaborate new communities. It’s a project of Hunt Realty Investments and Karahan Cos.
The development surrounds the PGA of America’s new headquarters and two golf courses.
Hunt Realty and Karahan bought the land for the Fields development in 2018, partnered with investors Chief Capital and Crosstie Partners.
Arizona-based homebuilder Taylor Morrison just bought land in the Fields community to build almost 500 houses. Taylor Morrison is the first builder to stake a claim in the project with its purchase in the Brookside area along Panther Creek Parkway.
