Laying the Foundation for Frisco, Texas
Our team recognized the market trends at work in the North Dallas area. As the Plano suburbs were developed, we recognized that additional development would proceed north and explode in the North Texas community of Frisco. SouthStar developed the Trails of West Frisco, a 1700-home community which became the foundation for Frisco’s phenomenal growth, and followed that with two additional communities. In all, over 3,000 families live in SouthStar communities in Texas.
