Former Cowboys team up: Staubach, Shaw plan Frisco’s first residential high-rise at The Star

Former Cowboys team up

Staubach, Shaw plan Frisco’s first residential high-rise at The Star

Two former Dallas Cowboys are teaming up to develop the first high-rise residential building in Frisco.

The apartment tower would be in the Cowboys’ Star in Frisco development on the Dallas North Tollway.

“Jerry Jones, Roger Staubach and I are planning a highrise at The Star,” said Dallas apartment builder and former Cowboys center Robert Shaw. “We’re working on it.”

The Star has filed plans with the city for a residential building with a “minimum 17 sto-
ries.” It’s too early in the planning process for details about the project.

Along with the Cowboys’ team headquarters and practice facility, the $1.5 billion Star project includes the 12,000seat Ford Center athletic and event venue; a multi-tenant office building; a high-rise Omni hotel; a sports medical center; and shops and restaurants.
At 16 floors, the Omni is the tallest building in Frisco.

Shaw and Staubach are building a 350-unit apartment project in West Dallas’ Trinity Groves on Singleton Boulevard. Also, Shaw’s Columbus Realty is building more than 1,000 apartments in the $3 billion Legacy West development in Plano.

Shaw was at Legacy West on Thursday morning to look at the next phase of his rental units in the Legacy West Urban Village.

“The leasing is going great,” he said.
