Sprouts Farmers Market planned for Arlington site

Property on north side of Interstate 20 at Green Oaks formerly housed a Minyard Food Store.

Sprouts Farmers Market may be headed to south Arlington.

Developer Arch Pardue, who two years ago bought the former Minyard Food Store shopping center on the north side of Interstate 20 at Green Oaks Boulevard, has plans before the city to locate a Sprouts supermarket at the site.

“We anticipate it happening,” Pardue said of the build-to-suit project.

Two years ago, the 5-acre site was developed with a Walgreens drugstore, and a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant is nearly completed. Sprouts would occupy about 27,650 square feet.

The estimated cost of construction is $3.7 million, according to permit filings, which list a completion date in July 2014.

A spokeswoman with Sprouts did not return phone calls seeking comment on the project. In Tarrant County, Sprouts has stores in Fort Worth, Keller and Southlake.

Andy Edwards is a development partner with Pardue, who owns Tri-Logic Capital in Dallas.
