Ground has been broken on the 303-room Hyatt Regency Stonebriar in Frisco, Texas, which will open in 2020. The property, which is being developed by the Sam Moon Group, will be attached to the Stonebriar Centre mall on the second floor.
The project features a 54,585-square-foot conference center including a grand ballroom, a junior ballroom and additional breakout spaces; an 800-space parking garage, of which 200 spaces will be available for game-day parking at the nearby Dr Pepper ballpark, home of Minor League Baseball's Frisco Roughriders; and a 3,000-square-foot outlet of the Frisco Public Library for use by all comers.
"We're fortunate to partner with Sam Moon Group, which is bringing quality and creativity to this state-of-the-art development," said Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney. "This public-private partnership represents Frisco's commitment to reinvest in Stonebriar Centre, long considered Frisco's first economic engine dating back to 2000... We're confident our residents, visitors and conventioneers will enjoy the convenience of having a high-end Hyatt Regency Stonebriar, a conference center and library space connected to our mall. Lifestyles are changing, and this project promotes a new way of living, visiting and doing business in Frisco." 
The hotel's design will draw from the locale, using warm colors and natural materials. The rooms will offer views of the city, and the property will be close by such activities as the iFly Dallas indoor skydiving facility and the new National Videogame Museum.
