FRISCO, Texas (August 27, 2014) – iPic Theaters and Pinstripes, Inc. will headline entertainment at the Wade Park development in fast-growing Frisco, Texas, announces developer Thomas Land & Development. The expansive 175-acre mixed-use center located at the Dallas North Tollway and Lebanon Road will be anchored by Whole Foods Market, merging upscale retail, fine dining, entertainment, hotels, commercial office space, and residential housing. The project broke ground earlier this month.
“iPic Theaters and Pinstripes represent important milestones in our plans for Wade Park -- one of the region’s foremost developments set in one of the most in-demand locations,” said Stan Thomas, president and CEO of Thomas Land & Development. “We are creating an exceptional destination center for people to live, work, shop and play in this growing community. Both iPic and Pinstripes bring fresh, luxury entertainment and dining concepts, with something to appeal to everyone, whether for a family, date night or social gathering.”
iPic Entertainment will bring a luxury movie theater and night out entertainment escape with the planned iPic Theaters at Wade Park. The theater will feature auditoriums outfitted with two luxury seating options, Premium and Premium Plus. Premium seat ticketholders will relax in large, plush leather seats and can purchase chef-driven gourmet food and beverages from iPic’s in-theater dining concept, Tanzy Express, to carry into the theater and enjoy at their seats. Premium Plus ticketholders can enjoy the comfort of full-leg-reclining seats, pillows and blankets and individual service-call buttons that summon ninja-like servers to deliver signature dining in the dark menu items crafted by iPic’s renowned, James Beard-recognized Chef Sherry Yard and handcrafted farm-to-glass cocktails created by award-winning mixologist and sommelier Adam Seger.
"We are excited to announce iPic Theaters at Wade Park, offering a premier entertainment and dining escape and the ultimate in movie-watching comfort and style,” said Hamid Hashemi, president and CEO of iPic Entertainment. “We look forward to bringing the vision of iPic Theaters to Frisco residents and guests.”
Pinstripes will occupy 32,000 square feet of first and second floor indoor/outdoor space, and will bring a fresh new dining and entertainment venue to Frisco and the surrounding communities. The venue will feature an exceptional Italian and American cuisine and wine cellar, 16 bowling lanes, 10 indoor and outdoor bocce courts, outdoor patios and fire pits, and event space accommodating 20 to 600 people. Guests can curl up with a blanket in front of the outdoor fireplace with a cocktail or gather with friends for an evening of bowling/bocce and dinner. This will be the first location for Pinstripes in the Texas market, with other current locations in Northbrook, South Barrington and Oak Brook, Ill.; Edina, Minn.; Georgetown, D.C.; and Overland Park, Kan.
“Wade Park is a first-class and innovative development, and we are excited to work with Thomas Land & Development to design and construct our unique and sophisticated entertainment and dining venue”, stated Dale Schwartz, Pinstripes founder and CEO. "This multi-use development combines shopping, dining, hotels, office and entertainment uses that position it as a community gathering spot for surrounding communities, and our 'strikingly good food and fun,' adds another one-of-a-kind activity to the mix."
Thomas Land & Development broke ground on the Wade Park development on August 6, 2014, with the first phase – including Whole Foods Market, iPic Theaters and Pinstripes – slated to open in spring 2016.
