Frisco officials approved of a partnership to bring a new performing arts center to Hall park according to a Community Impact article from June 1st. In it they say:
“Frisco officials on June 1 entered into an agreement between fellow public entities and developer Craig Hall for the construction of several facilities at Hall Park, including a performing arts center, a parking garage and a roughly 5-acre park.
Fellow public partners of the city include Frisco ISD, the Frisco Community Development Corporation and the Frisco Economic Development Corporation. Development from this agreement includes a $66 million performing arts center with at least 1,250 seats in a main performance hall, and at least 250 seats in a community venue, according to a memo prepared for Frisco City Council by city staff.”
More than the cost of the center, periphery structures will also add to the overall cost of the project according to another Community Impact article from June 1st. In it they say:
“In addition, a $33 million, 1,100-stall parking garage would support the performing arts center and a $30 million, roughly 5-acre public park similar to Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, the memo stated.
Funds for these projects would come from already-approved municipal bonds and Craig Hall.
Frisco City Council will reconvene in open session at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers at George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd.”
There’s no official timeline yet as to when the project will officially break ground and be completed.
