SkyHouse amenities will include a state-of-the-art 24-hour gym, yoga, Pilates and cross-training room, dog spa, controlled access entry, parking garage, fully equipped business center with gourmet coffee bar, and conference room with Apple TV and WiFi in the common areas.

Residents of SkyHouse will live within The Hub, Frisco Station’s centerpiece designed with more than 200,000 square feet of unique food and beverage concepts, innovative entertainment options and diverse retail selections. 

The Hub is distinctive from other retail districts through its integration of activated parks and open space, and connectivity to the development’s office, medical and residential platforms.
