Major real estate projects well-positioned for future

TOLL ON TOUR I SM

With stay-at-home orders in April, most regular events were canceled or postponed. Restaurants and retail also saw restrictions. But the large number of day-trippers to Frisco oers some hope for recovery, city leaders said.

Construction presses forward

73% of visitors were day-trippers. In 2018, Frisco had 6.6 MILLION visitors.

While the coronavirus has shut down hundreds of Frisco businesses and has left even more people out of work, construction on many of the city’s biggest developments is moving forward with few delays.

FriscoOKs zoning to allownewalcohol operations

BY WILLIAM C. WADSACK

CITY ZONING CHANGES NOW ALLOW:

FRISCO More than 18 months after allowing brewpubs to open in the city, Frisco could soon see residents visiting local breweries, distilleries and wineries. Frisco City Council approved a zoning ordinance amendment during its April 7 meeting that will allow those operations in the Original Town Commercial Dis- trict, the Highway District and Industrial District zonings. Mayor Je Cheney noted that residents have said they want those experience-type destinations in the city, accord- ing to a study commissioned by Visit Frisco last year. “The brewpub was one of the top things on the list that was identied, as people [were] going to McKinney and surrounding cities looking for this type of experience,” Cheney said. “Those types [of businesses] were not allowed before this ordinance was crafted. So this will allow us to go out and recruit those types of things.” A city committee with sta from the planning; building inspections; health and food safety; and re departments toured breweries in Allen and McKinney late last year to help amend the ordinance. That committee reviewed operations, safety standards, building design, Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and building permitting standards as well as parking requirements. Frisco Planning Manager Anthony Satarino told council that conditional standards are similar to what the city has

for brewpubs, with the same distance requirements from churches and schools. Applicants looking to open a brewery, distillery or winery will be required to obtain a specic use permit to operate in the OTC District or Highway District but not in industrial zoned areas of the city. That change led council to ask whether zoning standards would still apply in the city’s industrial areas as some of these businesses could operate out of a warehouse solely for manufacturing. “All of the zoning ordinance standards for design and setbacks and everything like that—all those would apply just as they would to any business operating under the zoning ordinance,” Satarino said.

Frisco-based bakery Just Cake It! has postponed as many as 15 wed- ding cakes since March, co-owner Jamie Terry said. “This has aected all of our clients, but especially weddings,” Terry said. “It’s been hard.” From conversations with brides, Terry said many are looking at this month to make a decision on whether to postpone their weddings. Just Cake It! has started oering no-contact deliveries and pickups and is looking at other creative ways to keep going, Terry said.

At least six couples have had to reschedule their sessions. “I’ve worked for the last 10 years to build the business and this brand,” Roberson said. “Just to see it come to a halt [for] something that’s out of our control is just panicking.” Roberson said it is best for cou- ples to reschedule through at least the middle of the summer. Terry said it is important for couples expecting to reschedule to notify their vendors as soon as possible. Just Cake It! also allows its clients to transfer funds to a dierent day, she said. Verona Villa is allowing couples to postpone their date at no cost. “We put a banner up in front of our building that says, ‘Love will prevail,’” he said, “and we just really believe that to be true.”

Local vendors have lost much of their business related to weddings since the virus made its way into Frisco in March. Venue Verona Villa rescheduled about 30 weddings that had been on the calendar between March and May, owner Jason Young said. “It caused everything to be put on hold,” Young said. Each wedding has at least eight vendors involved, Young said. Teams have spent hours reschedul- ing with each vendor while working through each couple’s emotional disappointment, he said. Young said it is dicult to tell when a new date can be set due to the rapidly changing nature of the

about 73% of them are day-trippers within a 75-mile radius,” she said during the April 21 Frisco City Coun- cil meeting. “We feel like that’s going to be really positive because the sen- timent to travel right now that we’re seeing is that people aren’t going to get on a plane as quickly as they would take a short staycation.” Jeff Smith, area managing direc- tor at the Omni Frisco Hotel, said the pandemic has created “unprece- dented challenges” for the hospitality industry. “I’ve been in the hotel business 37 years, and I could never have imag- ined to face this kind of challenge, with essentially the entire industry at a standstill,” Smith said. He said he expects the hotel’s sum- mer business to be down as people scale back leisure travel but could see the fall being busier for the Omni. “We’re not going to be able to recap- ture all this business for 2020, but we still have some groups that are sign- ing contracts for 2021 and beyond,” Roe said. “That’s a hopeful sign, that we all feel like we’re going to get back to business next year.” With six professional sports teams headquartered in Frisco, the

“I don’t think people have a true comprehension of the rip- ple effect that this is having, from hotels to restaurants [to] enter- tainment venues,” Felker said. In 2018, an estimated 6.6 million visitors spent $2.1 billion in the city, according to Visit Frisco. Of that, more than $930 million was spent at retail, including at the Stonebriar Centre, which had less than 15% of its tenants open heading into the last weekend in April. A quarter of visitor spend- ing went to the purchase of food and beverages, and just under 10% was spent on recreation and entertain- ment. Visitors also spent more than $220 million on lodging in the city. Local officials said it is likelygoing to be a slow build before Frisco gets back to that level of visitors and spending. Visit Frisco Executive Director Marla Roe said Frisco’s 21 hotels had averages of 67% occupancy and a $141 nightly rate during the first week of March. Six weeks later, a half-dozen of those hotels were temporarily closed, while the remaining ones had aver- ages of 9% occupancy and a nightly rate of $83. Despite that, Roe said there is hope for the future. “There is a silver lining at the end of all of this: Out of our 6million visitors,
