Google “City of Frisco” and go to Images. You’ll see aerial pictures of The Star in Frisco, the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center (especially when it’s lit up for the holidays), and some of the top of the line hospitals available to the community.
But you can’t scroll through all of those images without seeing the iconic Frisco water tower a handful of times. The Old Water Tower, as it’s lovingly called, was placed at the corner of 7th and Elm by the Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel Company in 1924, and it served as Frisco’s only elevated storage tank until 1985.
The Old Water Tower is a well-known staple of Frisco’s Rail District and downtown skyline. It can also be a staple of your own rooftop terrace view because why not, right? There’s a pun in here along the lines of, “It’s not a bad thing to have this watered-down view,” but it’s not a great pun. I’ll still use it, but it’s not great.
Nack Development, in addition to their other revitalizing developments in the Rail District, is proud to introduce The Tower at The Rail which will offer 8,000 square feet of boutique retail space on the street level and restaurant space with al fresco terrace dining on the upper level.
The Downtown Brownstone Life…
Wrapping a comfy, cozy arm around this future community anchor are eight brownstones uniquely designed by Nack for Nack and really for Frisco residents who want the look, feel, and vibrance of downtown living.
In addition to having the history of the downtown Frisco skyline from your windows, if you can go to your own private rooftop terrace to watch the awesome annual Frisco Freedom Fest, you’re winning. And also invite me. I’ll bring a charcuterie and make it worth your while.
Now, picture your very own downtown, 1,850 square foot, three-bedroom, three and a half-bath, four-story brownstone. Each brownstone has a private 550 square foot rooftop terrace for all of your entertaining and tower-gazing enjoyment. Gas and water lines are supplied for whatever outdoor kitchen/grill master setup you desire to soak in the incredible 360°-degree views of Frisco.
Enough about the rooftops though. Let’s take this party inside. The Towers at the Rail brownstones have features unique to Frisco as they have 10-foot ceilings with exposed steel ductwork, brick accent and shiplap walls, 60-inch electric fireplaces, fully fenced front yards, and two-car rear entry garages.
My dad was an architect when I was growing up, so I grew up loving to look at floorplans and imagine what I would do with the space if it were my own. You have a private front entry on the ground level in addition to the entry off the garage with a full bath and a study or a room for me to crash at your place in after you’ve invited me over for Freedom Fest. This room also has a private entry in the back by the garage.
The next floor up is an open concept dining, kitchen, and living space decked out with high-end Bosch appliances and commercial Wi-Fi-enabled vent hoods. There’s even a gas range for your culinary adventures. The utility room is just off the kitchen, and the half-bath is right around the corner from the living space for quick access during commercial breaks.
Are you starting to imagine what you’d do with this space?
One more flight of stairs takes you to 784 square feet of happy place. There you’ll rest your soul in a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a master bathroom with a walk-in shower and dual vanity sinks with enough windows that you might ask the sun to come back later.
This third floor has another bedroom for your kids or your roommate or your cat farm. I’d go with cat farm, but wherever the spirit moves you. There’s also one more full bath on this level before hitting the next flight of stairs up to the rooftop terrace that I feel I’ve fully expressed my enthusiasm for at this point.
The brownstones sell at a price point of $499,000-$519,000, but you’d better hurry. Five of the eight have already sold. Fear not, though, because a couple of the buyers have expressed an interest in leasing these delightful domiciles.
Each brownstone has a fenced, landscaped front yard (landscaping services included in the HOA fees), and then there’s the walkable access to dining, shopping, and convenience stores for your, um, convenience. The area will soon have widened sidewalks, bike lanes, street lamps for safety, and street parking for anyone who might want to come over to visit for Freedom Fest. Just saying.
With other Nack projects nearby such as the Patios, the Ritchey Gin, and the Nack Theater, plus all of the other one-of-a-kind venues that make the Rail District and Downtown Frisco stand out almost as much as the Old Water Tower, this feels like the perfect place to settle in whether you’re a young couple or empty-nesters.
I hope this description of the Towers at the Rail and an up-close view of the iconic Old Water Tower has successfully whet your interest. Yes. It’s spelled “whet” in this usage. Google that after googling “City of Frisco,” “Nack Development,” and “Water Puns.”
