I think I heard somewhere that they filled that space with companies that all had some association with the Cowboys or with Jones.

East Hampton is a bit surprising too, considering there is one just down the Tollway at Shops at Legacy.

Frisco approves plans for first high-rise, a new 17-story condo tower at Cowboys' The Star

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/rea ... ury-condos

Any bets on how fast this sells out? And this is the fourth high-rise residential project going up in that area?

Could be some of that but probably mostly fans, anything Cowboy related seems to a sure sell. I'm surprised Jones hasn't tried that concept in Arlington.

Mayor: Frisco to focus on quality over quantity development, performing arts center

http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/ ... ntity.html
Frisco will redouble its efforts to lure corporate headquarters and other large projects to the city and focus on quality development over quantity, new Mayor Jeff Cheney said at a luncheon today.

The city also will work with the private sector to construct a performing arts center, likely in Hall Office Park, Cheney said in outlining his goals for his first 100 days in office.

The Plano ISD school board is talking about adjusting the start/end dates of school years so that graduations can take place in The Star without any conflicts. How ever did people manage to graduate in the past without it?

Little surprised that Plano wants to hold graduation in Frisco.

Totally! Why hasn't Plano shared focus on the old downtown area?

The old downtown is still growing - there's an apartment building under construction now that replaced some small city buildings and some of the old places have closed (unfortunate) to be replaced by living space. But the city hasn't done anything else, like lure a fancy hotel (all along E/W sides of US75) or any kind of special attraction. I guess they are content to add local population for now.

Blue Star Land has filed plans with Frisco — three more office buildings at The Star, say DBJ and DMN, 7 to 12 stories tall.
Believe it or not, they’re not for Amazon.

Well Frisco (and Plano or any of the burbs but Plano makes slightly a smidgen more sense) was never in the running for Amazon to begin with, especially not after embarrassing themselves with their half assed proposal they sent in. Never met any of the requirements Amazon set forth for HQ2 and Amazon last week was touring the potential sites in downtown Dallas.

In the days of EDS and Frito-Lay and blue wool suits, I guess Plano could get away with being a fresh but somewhat boring brand. Lately with infrastructure beginning to age, more stylish housing stock further north, a growing airport owned by county seat McKinney, and a municipal name that resembles most closely, uh, "Plain," "Plain old," "Drāno," and "Bland," it will take more than Legacy West to stay in any national conversation.
