This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
Sam Moon Group first made a name for itself in Frisco as a wholesaler of women’s accessories and handbags. Now, the company's first luxury hotel in Frisco is capturing headlines in the North Dallas suburb.
Sam Moon Group has announced that its Hyatt Regency Stonebriar hotel development reached the halfway point of construction. The building is celebrating its topping out on April 12.
The 18-story, 303-room hotel is the brainchild of developer Sam Moon Group and architect HKS. Brasfield & Gorrie is serving as the contractor, while Looney & Associates is handling interior design.
The hotel will bring a 54K SF conference center online in Frisco plus a grand ballroom and additional junior ballrooms to accommodate conventions, conferences and special occasions.
The development also includes an 800-space parking garage and a 3K SF Frisco Public Library that can be used by hotel visitors and city residents. The library will essentially connect the hotel to Stonebriar Centre Mall.
“The topping out celebration marks a significant milestone for the construction of the Hyatt Regency Stonebriar,” Sam Moon Group Vice President Daniel Moon said. “We are looking forward to seeing the positive effect the Hyatt Regency Stonebriar has on the surrounding community and city of Frisco once the project is completed.”
The project is expected to complete in spring 2020.
Before this hotel, Sam Moon Group developed the Renaissance Legacy Plano hotel in Plano, Hyatt Place Alliance in Fort Worth and Metropark Square in The Woodlands, Texas.
