The retail development is staged to open its doors in November of 2014, with an official launch party slated for March 2015. The purpose of two grand openings will be to accommodate the holiday seasons for the retailers in 2014 and then a grand opening for restaurants in 2015.
The project will consist of more than 190,000 square feet and will sit on 22 acres of land. The development on the southwest corner of Carroll Avenue and Southlake Boulevard. The development includes specialty retailers such as REI, Gloria’s, Ra Sushi and Orvis. Additionally, a gourmet grocer and major running company will also host stores within Park Village.
“I think what it’s going to do and deliver for what Southlake doesn’t already have is the Thursday, Friday and Saturday night restaurant atmosphere,” explains Park Village Vice President Peter Jacobsen. “We are going to cluster a good number of places for people to come late in the afternoon and stay until late evening.”
Another aspect Park Village will feature is specific retailers and restaurants that focus on the active, healthy lifestyle. Consequently, the American retail corporation REI will act as the catalyst for this portion of Park Village.
Fort Worth-based The Woodmount Co. broke ground on construction in December. Currently, the project is more than 50-percent leased to tenants. The space for tenants ranges from 800 square feet to 12,000 square feet.
Update: The development recently released additional tenants to occupy the 22 acres of land.
Various restaurants and businesses are setting up shop in Park Village, including Luna Grill, Mesa Veracruz Coastal Cuisine, Modmarket, Potbelly and the Lash Lounge.
Keeping in line with the Park Village theme of healthy living, Modmarket will provide fresh, healthy eats at a cost-effective price.
The restaurant prides itself of serving food that is good, reasonably priced and served quickly. The ingredients come from farms, not brand products.
Colleyville's own The Lash Lounge is making its way to Southlake. This high-end, beauty salon specializes in semi-permanent eyelash extensions.
At the end of February, the Woodmount Company confirmed The Fresh Market would be the gourmet grocer in Park Village. Similar to Whole Foods and Central Market, the North-Carolina-based speciality grocer focuses on fresh foods and prepared meals.
Silver Lake Crossings Reveals First Development
The first commercial development in Grapevine’s Silver Lake Crossings project was unveiled, revealing a single hotel building, which contains two hotel brands.
Dubbed the “dual-branded” hotels, the project includes a Courtyard by Marriott and a TownePlace Suites by Marriott. The property is managed by NewcrestImage and owned by Metro Grapevine Hotels. The complex is located at S.H. 26 and Bass Pro Court, which is two minutes from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The commercial development takes up 10 acres of Silver Lake Crossings, which was proposed in 2009 but was delayed due to the economic downturn. Construction on the twin hotels began in the summer of 2012. Both hotels together cost roughly $42 million. Starting rates for both hotels are $199 a night.
Although the hotels have individual entrances, they share the same management and sales teams, as well as the same housekeeping staff. The properties will share an outdoor swimming pool, an exercise facility and a meeting place that includes a ballroom.
Upon completion, Silver Lake Crossings is expected to have 46,500 square feet of restaurant space as well as a 5,800-square-foot fuel and convenience center.
