Construction is underway on the 194-acre Glade Parks Town Center retail-centric development in Euless, which will bring some big-name retailers â like Cinepolis, DSW and Bath & Body Works â to this part of the region.Â In all, Glade Parks Town Center will bring more than 800,000 square feet of big-box retailers, entertainment destinations and restaurants to Euless. About half of that footprint is under construction, said Zach Knutson, executive vice president and COO of Illinois-based North Rock Real Estate LLC.
"Construction is progressing on the 24-Hour Fitness and DSW Shoes, which are in various stages of wrapping up," Knutson told the Dallas Business Journal."We are working on various leases on the proposed lifestyle center with some national retailers and full-service restaurants."Â Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is also under construction at Glade Parks, which will bring a restaurant known for its cultivated mountain lodge ambiance and a 1,400-square-foot patio to the retail center. The restaurant is slated for a November 2016 opening.
Glade Parks Town Center already has a Belk store that opened up last year, as well a Dave & Buster's entertainment hub. A 12-screen Cinepolis movie theater is also under construction and is expected to open to the public next summer.Â Even though the retail development is in the midst of evolution with only half of the tract under construction, Knutson said there's a lot of regional energy surrounding Glade Parks Town Center with H-E-B acquiring land to the south of the site for future development.Â "We are very excited about this being a super regional play in the Mid-Cities," he said. "With our Belk store; it really sets us apart from other shopping destinations."Â The town center is also bringing apartment investors to adjacent properties, as well as single-family homes, Knutson said, adding he hopes to land a 135-key nationally-branded hotel in the next few months.
