Most of the building in Frisco have the exterior stone. This really looks nice across the city. The new Cinemark, Main Event and Ihop have normal brick and stand out. Is the city not requiring new buildings to have it?

The City of Frisco has a requirement for 100% masonry for non-residential building materials. This may include any combination of brick, stone, stucco, synthetic stucco, concrete, etc. The only area that has a requirement for stone is the Preston Road Overlay District. Many developers, however, choose to do stone just because of its visual appeal. With regards to development around the Main Street/DNT area, this area is intended to replicate the historic center of the city as an extension of the historic downtown. Typical architecture for early 1900ís Texas towns consisted mainly of brick. Stone as a building material was not common during that period. As the Main Street area continues to build out, the theme will start to pull together more consistently. Should you have any further questions, please let me know.
