Welcome to North Texas! Major Companies Continue to Flock to the Area

 

 

Global powerhouses with household names and large workforces continue to flock to North Texas. Companies like Toyota, Pizza Hut, Keurig Dr Pepper, Frito Lay & JCPenney have all left their longtime headquarters and set up new ones right here. 

The latest of these is the PGA of America. who announced in December it would be making its new home in North Texas. 

"There's an ecosystem of companies there now and they're in very innovative cities," says Bryan Daniel, executive director for economic development and tourism in Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's office.

The corporate buzz about North Texas is focused on suburban communities, particularly in Plano and Frisco. But other communities – Allen, McKinney and Prosper – are waiting in the wings. Talk to anyone in the North Texas business community, and they tout a good cost of living, excellent schools, housing that's affordable with lots of price points, safe neighborhoods, access to arts and sports, racial and ethnic diversity and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The new PGA headquarters will span over 600 acres in Frisco. It will include two golf courses, a clubhouse, resort, conference center, retail stores, parks, trails and open space. With the golf courses expected to open in 2022, the hotel, convention center and other facilities will soon follow. The PGA headquarters is expected to bring 1,000 new jobs starting this summer.

PGA of America is Heading to Frisco!

The PGA of America is moving its headquarters from Palm Beach County, Florida to Frisco, Texas, the 2018 Best Place to Live in America,’ where it will anchor a 600-acre, mixed-use development with an initial investment worth more than half a billion dollars. This groundbreaking agreement is estimated to have an economic impact of more than $2.5 billion over the next 20 years.

The PGA of America is teaming with Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), a joint venture led by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater Capital and Woods Capital; the City of Frisco, as well as its Economic and Community Development Corporations; and the Frisco Independent School District.

“Our move to Frisco will be transcendent for the PGA of America,” said Seth Waugh, CEO, PGA of America.  “Everything great starts with a dream.  This is the beginning of a bold, new journey as we bring together world-class partners in a world-class location – to deliver innovative and differentiated experiences for our nearly 29,000 PGA Golf Professionals, golfers of all abilities and our staff.”

Two championship golf courses, a short course, and practice areas totaling 45 holes; a clubhouse; Class AA office space; a 500-room Omni resort and 127,000-square-foot conference center; a technologically advanced retail village; parks and open space plus several miles of trails, will complement this unique, signature development.

A welcoming gateway at Frisco’s northern border, the upscale development will be located at Rockhill Parkway and Legacy Drive, approximately one-third of a mile south of U.S. 380.  The 600 acres are primarily situated within 2,500 acres being master planned by Hunt Realty Investments. The development will be open to the public, as well as golfers.The entire project will have an initial, estimated public-private investment totaling more than $520 million. 

The PGA of America will invest $30 million to build its 100,000-square-foot global headquarters and education facility.  OSW will invest $455 million to purchase the land, construct the hotel, conference center, retail space, parking facilities, and golf courses.  The golf course, club house, practice areas and associated public facilities will be owned by the city. More than 300 FISD high school golfers will practice at the facility on a weekly basis.

The golf courses are expected to open in summer 2022. The hotel, convention center, and other facilities are expected to open within six months of that date. The development will host the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in 2023.
