Some retailers emerging for Presidio Towne Crossing in north Fort Worth

Garden Ridge plans its newly rebranded store called Garden Ridge At Home, while TJ Maxx, Old Navy and In & Out Burger are among other names.

Some names of retailers planning to open at the Presidio Junction development in far north Fort Worth are starting to become known.

Garden Ridge, a Plano-based home decor chain, plans one of its newly branded Garden Ridge At Home stores at 2201 Porter Creek Drive, according to permits. Garden Ridge said this year that it was investing $20 million to rebrand all its stores to the new name.

And according to building permits, Presidio Towne Crossing, on the west side of Interstate 35W at North Tarrant Parkway, will also include TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Petco, Dollar Tree, Old Navy, Shoe Carnival and Ross, and In & Out Burger at 2424 Porter Creek Drive.

In June, the Dallas-based Weber & Co. shopping center development firm bought about 70 acres in the Presidio Junction development. Target has already bought land from Weber & Co. for a store near Tehama Ridge Parkway and North Tarrant Parkway.

Texas Turnpike moves headquarters to Fort Worth

Texas Turnpike Corp., a private developer of transportation infrastructure, has moved its office to Fort Worth from Dallas.

The new address is 6300 Ridglea Place, Suite 1004.

“Fort Worth is an excellent business environment,” founder and CEO John Crew said. “My partner, Alan Friedman, is a Fort Worth native and a Texas Christian University trustee. He has been encouraging us to move here, because of Fort Worth’s distinction as a great business home for entrepreneurs.”

Texas Turnpike was established in 1991 as a private for-profit road corporation and can own, operate, finance, design, construct, expand and operate private toll roads and tunnels. It is developing Northeast Gateway, a toll road previously known as the Blacklands Turnpike, connecting Interstate 30 in Hunt County to the President George Bush Turnpike in Dallas County.
