More stores, restaurants and upscale urban lofts are planned for a new development that will straddle Euless and Bedford.

Recently, the two cities agreed on uniform zoning for the 37.1-acre Glade Parks South that includes regulations for parking, landscaping and building setbacks.

“This is a win-win situation for both cities, said Bill Syblon, Bedford’s director of development.

Glade Parks South, owned by Tonti Properties, is a separate development from the nearby Glade Parks, which is bustling with single-family homes, urban lofts and stores such as Belk, which will begin construction this summer, and Dave & Buster’s, which is scheduled to open in early May.

Glade Parks South is on the north side of Cheek Sparger Road, south of Bear Creek, between Heritage Road to the west and Rio Grande Boulevard to the east.

Most of the land for Glade Parks South is in Euless, which will include the luxury lofts, shopping and restaurants. Six acres are in Bedford, where big-box retailers such as a grocery store or The Home Depot can locate, and land will also be set aside for parks and wetlands.

Mike Collins, director of planning and economic development for Euless, said there are no announcements yet on the stores and restaurants that would locate in Glade Parks South.

The urban lofts will be in a four-story building surrounded by “structured parking” on three sides and are designed for upscale professionals. Residents will also be able to walk to Glade Parks and to the park and wetland areas, officials said.
