Frisco is in for a huge development after Dream Hotel Group set its sights in building Firefly Park with a luxury hotel according to a WFAA article from May 23 which reports,
“A developer today announced plans for a new 200-room hotel set to be the centerpiece of a 230-acre mixed-use development in Frisco.
The hotel, being developed by Dream Hotel Group, will be known as Dream Frisco and will be part of Firefly Park. Dream Frisco will include a rooftop pool deck and bar, a fitness center, as well as a nightclub, two bars and a restaurant. It will be located near US Highway 380 and the Dallas North Tollway.
“When we started thinking about what the northern part of Frisco was going to look like, we knew it needed to be a different experience from the southern part of our city. Now, with the announcement of the Dream Hotel coming to Firefly Park, it adds a significantly different, cool vibe to Frisco,” said Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney. “Dream will be a destination for the region and is an impressive beginning for Firefly Park.”
The new mixed-use development, expected to open in 2026, will include 4.75 million square feet of office space, 2,200 apartment units and townhomes, 380,000 square feet of retail space, and a music hall and outdoor amphitheater.”
The company who will be bringing Firefly Park to Frisco, Dream Hotel Group, brings an extensive and amazing portfolio and they couldn’t be any more excited with their latest project according to a CultureMap Dallas article from May 24. They say,
“Dream Hotel Group is a hotel brand and management company founded by Sant Singh Chatwal, also a restaurateur who built businesses in Ethiopia and Canada before coming to New York in 1981. The company’s hotel brands include Dream Hotels, Time Hotels, The Chatwal, and Unscripted Hotels.
They currently have 15 hotels and 25 more in development, including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Bangkok, and Nashville.
Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein says in a statement that Frisco is the ideal destination to expand the Dream brand as it’s one of the fastest-growing markets in Texas.
“We are fortunate to collaborate with visionary developers like Wilks Development who share our same big dreams and bold ambitions to grow and develop our brand in new and emerging markets across the country,” Stein says. “Firefly Park is the future of North Dallas, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”
Firefly will be breaking ground in 2023 and the hotel is expected to open in 2026. But the entire development will take longer since it will include different amenities such as ponds, playgrounds, trails and parks.
