(July 27, 2016) Today, executives from Omni Hotels & Resorts, the Dallas Cowboys, along with Frisco Mayor Maher Maso, commemorated the ceremonial construction milestone of the topping out of the 16-floor, 300-room Omni Frisco Hotel.
Representatives from the City of Frisco, the Frisco Independent School District (FISD), the Frisco Economic Development Committee, Frisco Chamber of Commerce and Frisco Convention & Visitors Bureau were also on-hand for the event where a Leyland Cypress tree was hoisted to the top floor of the property – a longtime construction tradition symbolizing appreciation and good fortune.
Set to open in summer 2017, the Omni Frisco Hotel will serve as a cornerstone of The Star development, which is anchored by the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters and the Ford Center.
The Cowboys new headquarters will be home to the entire football operations, including administrative offices, coaches’ offices as well as the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
The Ford Center seats 12,000 and will serve as both the home venue for FISD for events and activities, and the practice and training facility for the Cowboys. The Star is set to open Aug. 27, 2016.
