The hits just keeping coming to Glade Parks.
Construction will start soon on an Aloft Hotel that will have 140 rooms along with a bar and restaurant, said Mike Collins, planning and economic development director for Euless. The hotel will be near the public plaza and lifestyle area at Glade Parks, which is on the west side of the Texas 121 corridor between Cheek-Sparger and Glade roads.
Aloft Hotels, with worldwide locations, are part of Marriott Corp. and promise travelers a modern, urban design with a hip, social experience according to the company website. The one in Euless will be the second hotel being built along the busy stretch of 121. A Hampton Inn and Suites is under construction just down the freeway in Colleyville, that city’s first hotel.
Also at Glade Parks, Outback Steakhouse announced plans to build a restaurant; a luxury 12-screen Cineappolis movie theater is scheduled to open in the summer; and work is underway on a 24-hour Fitness, Collins said.
Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, which features room for dogs and their human companions to hang out on the 1,400-square-foot patio, is scheduled to open Jan. 8.
“I think that the master developer working with its commercial broker has done an excellent job,” Collins said of the ongoing work to bring in more restaurants and stores.
Glade Parks is anchored by a Belk department store along with Dave & Buster’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods. Besides lots of restaurants and shopping, Glade Parks also offers urban lofts for young professionals and single-family homes.
