Fields Frisco is a city unto itself transforming the rolling terrain of the coveted Fields family ranch into one of the most desirable communities the Metroplex has to offer. The 2,500-acre development is more than three times the size of Plano’s Legacy West development and is destined to become Frisco’s new urban core. The ambitious project will include Collin County’s tallest office tower and its first five-star hotel, while also featuring pocket parks, tree-lined promenades, and niche retail spaces.

The Fields development will feature several neighborhood segments which focus on a range of commercial office development opportunities, as well as a mixture of residential product types, retail, and industrial uses. The project will deliver over 500 acres of commercial office development sites with opportunities for low-rise campus developments to mid- and high-rise urban office towers.

Scenic corporate campuses and luxury residential towers seamlessly connect with high-energy streetscapes that bustle from restaurant patios, hotel rooftops, and destination retail. The distinct downtown feel of Fields Frisco will redefine the entire Dallas North Tollway corridor with its balance of urban density and wide-open spaces.

An almost 500-acre section of the project is dedicated to the headquarters of PGA of America with two golf courses and the Omni PGA Frisco Resort. This pocket of Fields features nearly a mile of frontage along Highway 380. The entire project stretches from Preston Road west past the Dallas North Tollway and all the way north to US 380 and offers the perfect opportunity to explore Frisco’s final frontier yet remain completely connected to the greater metro area.

Fields Frisco is created in partnership with Hunt Realty Investments and The Karahan Companies. KDC will also work alongside Republic Property Group, Chief Partners LP and CrossTie Capital Ltd.

President / CEO - Dallas CASA

What is your best childhood memory?

On Sunday afternoons, our family would drive out to what we then called “the country” to Seibel’s ice cream store in Burtonsville, Maryland. Seibel’s closed last year after 82 years, but I continue to order mint chocolate chip in fond memory of a favorite family tradition.

What are you most proud of professionally?

When I joined as a board member 20 years ago, Dallas CASA was serving fewer than one out of five children in foster care. Thanks to the efforts of our board, volunteer advocates, and staff, Dallas CASA now accepts court appointments to all Dallas County child welfare cases and serves more child victims of abuse and neglect than any of the more than 900 CASA programs nationwide.

What’s the best vacation you’ve taken?

The day after law school graduation, my husband Mike and I began a two-week driving tour of Ireland, staying at bed & breakfasts, meeting the most amazing people (who were obsessed with the TV show Dallas), and taking in the most gorgeous shades of green.

What’s your favorite book and why?

T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. Each time I pick it up, I find a verse that holds new meaning and significance.

What gives you hope?

Last year more than 1,500 members of our community were court-appointed as Dallas CASA volunteer advocates to represent the best interests of children in child welfare cases. It’s extraordinarily hopeful that so many individuals are willing to step out of their comfort zone and into the life of a child during a frightening and uncertain time.

What phrase do you say most frequently?

“I’m only [fill in the blank] % kidding.” I say it when sharing a new and potentially disruptive idea that our team likely hopes I am not entirely serious about pursuing.


KDC Leads Parade of Playhouses as Grand Marshal

KDC is back supporting the Dallas CASA Parade of Playhouses, which presents one-of-a-kind imaginative children’s playhouses raffled as a fundraiser to benefit abused and neglected children. The 27th annual event is scheduled for July 15-31 at NorthPark Center.

KDC serves as a matchmaker of sorts in the Grand Marshal role. With 30 years of experience working with top-notch architects, construction companies, designers and more, KDC works directly with these experts across the Metroplex to coordinate scheduling and planning of the playhouses for the event. Since joining the project, KDC has helped increase the number of playhouses offered in the fundraising event, making it a true success story.

Participating business leaders design, build and donate incredible children’s playhouses to raise funds so that Dallas CASA can provide more volunteer advocates to help children who have been abused or neglected have safe, permanent homes where they can thrive. During the 17-day event, raffle tickets are sold for the opportunity to win a playhouse. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales and sponsorships benefit the children served by Dallas CASA.

“With years of experience developing homes for Corporate America, it was a natural opportunity for KDC to step in and provide expertise and support for Dallas CASA playhouse project,” said Toby Grove, KDC. “This wonderful partnership produces more opportunities for volunteers in the commercial real estate industry to support the mission of safe, loving homes for children.”

KDC has a long history of supporting the local community including working with the 24 Hour Club, The Magdalen House, Carry The Load, and many more. Collaborating with other members of the DFW commercial real estate industry allows all of us the chance to give back to our wonderful community.

Traveling Ancient Paths: KDC’s Mike Rosamond in Israel

EVP Mike Rosamond finally took the bucket list trip he’s been planning for years as he walked the same paths he heard about in Bible stories throughout his life.

In June, Mike and his wife, Donna, joined a group tour of the Holy Land as they traveled to Tel Aviv, Israel on the Mediterranean Coast. Among the sites visited: the Galilee District in and around the Sea of Galilee, the cities of Capernaum and Caesarea Philippi and Jerusalem. They also traveled to the mountain fortress of Masada, the Dead Sea, Bethlehem and Sephora, the Garden of Gethsemane and the Old City of Jerusalem.

“We’ve heard the biblical stories all our lives and have imagined the places, the climate and the people who actually lived in this area, and we had heard from others that it was a life changing experience for them,” Mike says. “In the Galilee District, we walked where 70% of Jesus’ ministry took place. In Galilee we visited where Jesus stayed in Simon Peter’s house as he traveled about the Galilee area. We found it to be everything we had heard and more.”

Mike says visiting the actual places where Jesus encountered people from the Bible stories he’s heard for decades was a remarkable feeling. “Visiting Caesarea Philippi, where He questioned His apostles … to the city of Capernaum, where His closest friendships were formed and He staged his ministry, delivering the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes. Simply being in these places, and of course Jerusalem itself, were the most interesting aspects of the trip,” he explains.

“On several occasions, it was humbling to stand in a particular spot, such as Capernaum in Galilee or at Caesarea Philippi and to hear the words spoken by Jesus as He stood in the same place on earth. Time seemed to shrink from 2000 years ago to yesterday as we attempted to take it all in,” Mike says. “It was an overwhelming emotional experience. There was a strong sense of place and the special relationship that Israel and Jerusalem hold for Christians around the world.”

The trip was originally planned for October 2020 and postponed multiple times, Mike says. But the wait was worth it. He and his wife hope to maintain the awe they felt in Israel with their family as they start a new tradition beginning next Spring with the acquisition of about two dozen small olive wood cups to use around the Easter table with their children and grandchildren to celebrate the Lord’s Supper.


CityLine has more than 100 live events each year on the plaza. Recently, KDC closed the office early so everyone could go home and gather their families for an evening at CityLine. We listened to live music, shopped at the night market, and enjoyed lots of food and fun.
