The development and reimagining of the Rail District aims to embody the spirit of Frisco in the same way this entire city has evolved for the last few decades. Nack Development strives to merge the classic with the current, the modest with the modern, and the original with the “OMG, this is amazing.”
This 40,500 square foot, three-story beacon of bustling business will boast retail, restaurants, rooftop dining patios (two to be exact), and a rooftop park.
Now that I’m out of alliterative word options, I’ll tell you The Patios will also offer office space, an event center, and a parking garage. That last part wasn’t as poetic as The Patios promise to provide, but it was really informative.
Located on the Southeast corner of Main Street and South County Road, the Patios at the Rail will be a centralized hub for shopping, dining, exercising, socializing, and…ping ponging?
The Patio Parties
The Patios at the Rail offer an eclectic collection of contributors for all your commerce needs. Check out this list. It’s in alphabetical order so no one gets upset, and all associated quotes are pulled directly from the websites of these exciting new businesses:
- Atrium Salon + Studio — “Atrium Salon + Studio is truly one-of-a-kind. A demand in the industry, Atrium introduces a new raw energy and organic vibe that creates an oasis for clients to relax and get revived.”
- Cibo Kitchens — “A beautiful, shareable commercial culinary venue. Rent by the hour, located in the heart of the Frisco, TX Rail District. Ideal for chef pop-ups, food prep, culinary classes, mixology, supper club, food photography/videography and more!”
- K27 Performance — Opening TBA. More information will be available soon.
- La Finca Coffee & Bakery — “As a small batch coffee roaster, we can diligently manage our roasted coffee inventory. We roast coffee based on the specific coffee bean and demand which guarantees that the beans are always fresh and of the highest quality.”
- LOOP, A Ping Pong Kitchen & Bar — Opening TBA. More information will be available soon.

The Patios Event Center
The Patios Event Center and Roof Deck has high hopes (no pun intended). From Dia De Los Muertos celebrations to Christmas festivities, the ceiling is the roof with this space. There are plans to host a farmer’s market, a mercantile of boutique shops featuring clothing, beer, and wine, and even weddings!
Not simultaneously, of course. That would be a very congested, confusing wedding. But it proves how adaptable and accommodating the Patios Event Center and Roof Deck can be all while overlooking the iconic symbols of the downtown city skyline.
Speaking of roof access, there is still space available on the prime corner at Main and S. County with 4600 square feet and roof access. If you’re interested, reach out to Matt Calloway for more information.
Spend the Day
Donny Churchman, President and CEO at Nack Development, doesn’t want you to just swing by The Patios. His vision is that you start at the Patios and spend the day in the Rail District and then end your day at the Patios. And then get married on the Roof Deck. I added that last part, but that would be a pretty full day, right?
With an imaginative force behind the project, a parking garage will keep convenience at easy reach. There are 116 parking spaces on site and eventually 20-plus spaces across the street so that you can park, play, purchase, and partake in plentifully pleasant provisions of food. My alliteration game is strong today.
Nack Development started with a mixed-use plot where the classic Double Dip used to reside, and they creatively remixed it even further to create The Patios at The Rail. As the first redevelopment project as part of The Rail District, The Patios will be a place that is engaging from sun up to sun down.
Restaurant rooftop patios offer an elevated al fresco dining experience against the sunset or under the stars. And there’s park space with outdoor games and playgrounds for entertaining kids, parents, grandparents, or that really fun aunt who still thinks she’s twelve.
The development is a work in progress with some vendors opening sooner than others, but this is an opportunity to return numerous times because something new will be waiting for you each time.
Not to mention this can be the hub that opens the door to you as a resident, tourist, or maybe that really fun aunt to enjoy a day in Frisco’s Rail District and everything it has to offer.
Stay tuned for more information on how this area plans to proceed, promote, and participate in the progress of Frisco’s Rail District.
