Yeah Frisco is a pretty boring place. Nothing there but a mall and an IKEA. Same with McKinney but McKinney has no mall. With the Parks Mall, Arlington would still have Six Flags and Wet 'n Wild. It is real close to Fort Worth, too. There is prairie in between Frisco and McKinney.

Frisco has Dr. Pepper stadium and host soccer games. I believe a minor league baseball team also plays there. They are also building the Grand Park, which will emulate central park in NYC. And I don't think you can call Stonebriar a 'mall'. It's one of the nicest malls I've seen and I get around.

Frisco is an excellent safe/clean (and now expensive) family friendly spot.

Stonebriar is mall. Just like Northpark is a mall, and Houston's Galleria is a mall. Those malls may not be like Grapevine or Katy Mills Mall, nor may they be like the dump they call Six Flags Mall, but they are malls.

I forgot about FC Dallas' stadium. Bad location for a pro-team, though.

"sounds neat, where is it located?"

Go to the Frisco Online forums, then look under the areas, pick "Pearson Farms"

It is east of Legacy and goes up to main st.

The map is located in the forum I mentioned above.

Frisco is an excellent safe/clean (and now expensive) family friendly spot.
Frisco is home to the Texas Tornado (minor league ice hockey), the Texas Roughriders (minor league baseball w/ a STRONG following), and the Dallas Burn (MLS soccer), along w/ the nice outdoor bike track. Lots of big name artists (music) come in to play at the Pizza Hut stadium in Frisco. The Dallas Stars also practice at the Dr Pepper Stars Center in Frisco (NHL hockey). So there is A LOT more to Frisco than just "a mall".

As for the crime in Frisco. You also have to consider how much of these crimes (thefts most likely) occur on construction sites. That is a HUGE problem no matter where. While the large mall does attract a criminal element if it is a popular mall that always has a ton of cars in the parking lot.

Hey I just found this thread! Yes unfortunatly the realtor was murdered over off of Custer by some construction crew man. It is so sad!

I know a lady who was robbed over at Sam Moon in front of the Stonebriar Centre. She had went into Sam Moon and had left all her Creative Memories scrap booking materials out and they broke in and took them all. They took over 600 dollars worth. She was just sick.

I can see why crooks like Stonebriar, it is a great mall with tons of upscale shopping which attracts many people. Just sad to me why we have to live in a world where people don't care about who they hurt or take away from them.

Frisco is pretty progressive with regards to control (building, architecture, HOA, Parks, green space, school standings, corporate incentives, etc.) . I believe this will not be a problem for long. They cannot allow this to become a high crime area and tarnish their image before the build out is done.

I wonder how many car damage there would be if all the homes were front entry?
