Vet clinic to pounce on new property

Summit Daily/Brad Sutor Frisco Animal Hospital employees Eden Weisbond and Keyia Phelps play outside in the summer sun with Sashita last Wednesday. Not only is the business moving, but they are taking the building with them. The entire operation with a new basement addition will be moving down the road next to Starbucks sometime this fall.

FRISCO – Frisco-area pets will be saying “ahh” in a new location this fall after veterinarian Paul Veralli picks up and moves his practice, Frisco Animal Hospital, to a new location on Summit Boulevard next to Starbucks.

Sometime between Labor Day and mid-October, workers will split the building in two and wheel it to its new foundation, where it will receive a facelift to blend in with nearby buildings.The move will free up the clinic’s existing location at Granite Street and Seventh Avenue for a commercial/residential mixed-use development project on that property and on two adjacent parcels: the current Summit Recycling Project’s Frisco drop-off center and the Boardwalk shopping center.

Veralli purchased the recycling site from the town of Frisco last month for $1.25 million. The town lowered the price by $100,000 in exchange for Veralli’s commitment to include affordable housing within the residential portions of the future development.Veralli said he is in the very preliminary planning stages of the project, but that all three parcels will undergo redevelopment together with a unified design.

The Boardwalk building will eventually be demolished, but not before the current tenants finish out their leases. The town of Frisco has committed to assisting in the relocation of the recycling center by next May.
