More restaurants and stores will open soon at the bustling Glade Parks development, bordering Euless and Colleyville.
Mike Collins, the city’s planning and development director said that construction is also underway at the Belk department store, an anchor of the 194-acre development. Work is progressing on the exterior of the building, and the contractor can also start on the interior of the building, he said. The 95,000-square-foot, $10.8 million store is scheduled to open in March.
The fire lane between Rio Grande and Brazos Boulveard was closed because of the construction of Belk and a lifestyle center. The fire lane and underground utilities will be shifted to the south and should open in March, he said.
Belk’s sits next door to Dick’s Sporting Goods in a busy stretch of the development.
Glade Parks is a 194-acre development of urban lofts, homes and retail.
The city recently approved a site plan for a movie theater, but Collins said an operator hasn’t been announced. There are no details yet on the number of screens the theater will have, he said.
Glade Parks, on the west side of the busy Texas 121 corridor between Cheek-Sparger and Glade roads is a mix of single-family homes, urban lofts and commercial development.
Pie Five opened its doors recently. Panera Bread, north of the Raising Canes restaurant, is supposed to open its 4,385-square-foot location by mid-November, around the time a Verizon Wireless store is also scheduled to open.
A Five Guys Burgers and a Sleep Experts store are also coming to Glade Parks, but they are still under construction and opening dates haven’t been announced.
Glade Parks will also feature a public plaza/park that will connect the homes and urban lofts with the shops and restaurants. Earlier this year, the council approved creating a public improvement district to fund the creation and development of the park and a parking garage.
$10.8 million Cost to build the Belk department store
Collins told the Star-Telegram previously that the park would be flanked by commercial buildings including restaurants with outdoor patios, and the movie theater will be nearby.
Collins said that workers are grading the site for the park to install underground utilities.
