Hi!

I have read news in dallas business journal about a plan to build Premier Studios at NW corner of DNT & Warren. Is City has any information or any plans to attract film studios to this region? The link of the news as given below. I appreciate your response.

The Frisco Economic Development Corporationís (FEDC) Strategic Plan includes seven industry focus groups, which includes computers & electronics, medical devices, telecommunications, software & media, financial services, entertainment & recreation and renewable energy. The FEDC implements the Strategic Plan programs and activities to attract, retain and expand businesses to generate new jobs and expand the tax base of our community.

While the development of a movie studio complex is not specifically named in the FEDCís Strategic Plan, such a project would be considered a part of the software & media and entertainment industry focus groups. A movie studio complex in Frisco would also be another unique destination venue that would bring many visitors and guest to our community that would generate new business for our hotels, restaurants and retail establishments.

The City is aware of the article that was published in the Dallas Business Journal. A representative of the project has met with the city and discussed their ideas and plans for the project. A project representative is working to purchase a site in Frisco. However, at this time it is unknown if the project has the funds to develop the project. Time will tell.


Thanks,
Jim Gandy
