Frisco project will include huge fitness center, offices and retail
A new mixed-use development on the works for Frisco will bring a huge fitness center plus office and retail buildings on the Dallas North Tollway.
The 36-acre property located north of Main Street on the west side of the tollway was originally planned for a data center, said Lee McCormick with owner Patronus Land Development.
"We've owned it for several years but never moved ahead with the project," McCormick said. "Lifetime wants to do a large project there."
Along with a 124,000-square-foot fitness center, the fitness chain is seeking zoning to build three office buildings and two restaurant and retail buildings, according to plans filed with Frisco.
McCormick said Lifetime Fitness would sell the office and retail sites to other builders.
The planned fitness complex would include a 50,000-square-foot swimming center with two pools plus a dozen tennis courts and a soccer field. Show Full Story
A park area with walking trails would be built on the northwest corner of the property.
The planned fitness facility would be one of the largest in North Texas for the Minnesota-based company which has nine locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Lifetime Fitness has 135 locations across the U.S. and Canada.
The company this week is opening a 123,000-square-foot fitness center in Fort Worth.
"That club is our first built in the Dallas market since 2010 and is similar to our plans for Frisco," said Lifetime Fitness' Natalie Bushaw. "It has eight outdoor tennis courts with a huge outdoor aquatic oasis.
"Dallas is one of our company's largest markets for clubs and we're certainly making news for elevating the experience in athletic lifestyle resorts."
