Frisco Planning & Zoning Commission recommended approval of The Mix, a 112-acre development slated for Dallas Parkway and Lebanon Road.

Phase 1 comprises 100K SF of retail, including a 40K SF grocer and a 120K SF, Class-A medical office building. It would also include some apartments and is slated to take approximately three years to complete.

The site was supposed to house the $2B Wade Park development, but those plans were abandoned after lenders seized the property in 2019. A year later, Georgia-based owner Wade Park Land declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Dallas-based StreetLights Residential is partnering with JVP Management on the development. Frisco City Council is expected to vote on the project in September.
