Frisco’s planned Wade Park development has landed another hotel. Langham Hotels & Resorts has agreed to open its first Texas hotel in the project in 2018.

The proposed hotel will be at the Dallas North Tollway and Lebanon Road. The international hotel chain plans to operate a 250-room hotel in a 35-story high-rise that will also include residential units, according to Wade Park builder Thomas Land & Development of Atlanta.

Wade Park is a 175-acre mixed-use development that is projected to cost $1.6 billion when it’s completed. Hotel ZaZa, Whole Foods Market, iPic Theaters, Pinstripes Bowling and a variety of restaurants have also been announced for the project, which was started a year ago.

 

“We are thrilled to partner with Langham Hospitality Group to introduce the prestigious five-star Langham Hotels & Resorts brand to North Texas,” Stan Thomas, president and CEO of Thomas Land and Development, said in a statement. “This hotel will be a centerpiece for Wade Park, surrounded by high-end restaurants, retail, entertainment, offices and residential.”

Dallas architect 5G Studio Collaborative has been hired to design the hotel, which will have up to 25 hotel floors, and 10 floors of planned residential.

A pedestrian bridge will like the hotel to a planned office tower and the iPic theater.
