Stonebriar Centre is a mid-range shopping mall located at the intersection of Preston Road (SH 289) and the Sam Rayburn Tollway (SH 121) in Frisco, Texas, U.S.. It contains six major department store anchor stores, a 24-screen movie theater, 2 major restaurants, a Dave and Busters, and a total of 165 tenants renting over 1,630,000 square feet (151,000 m2) gross leasable area. Until July 31, 2013, it hosted an NHL-sized ice arena.
In the 1980s, Frisco's city government leaders realized they needed new economic development with something that would attract not only people but money. They decided there was no greater economic driver in North Texas than a shopping mall. In 1988, Jerry Rosenholtz of Homart, then a subsidiary of Sears, planned on putting a million square foot mall in Frisco, which was a town of about 6,000 people at the time.
When Plano city officials learned of Homart's plan, they offered $10 million if the company would move its planned mall across the road into their city limits. Frisco lobbied to keep the planned mall and was able to work out tax incentives to close the deal. Plano then convinced another company, General Growth Properties, to place a mall within their city limits. In 1995 however, General Growth bought out Homart who had already signed an agreement with Frisco. The City of Frisco made a final offer to General Growth of a half-cent sales tax rebate, property tax abatement for ten years, and infrastructure improvements in and around the mall. Plano continued to lobby hard for the new mall and Frisco eventually upped its sales-tax grant. Frisco finally won the fight and on August 4, 2000, the 1,600,000-square-foot (150,000 m2) mall opened.
The mall has generally received positive reviews and received a 3.5 star rating out of 5 stars with visitors giving compliments about the restaurants, but some disliking the parking lots' design.
