CBRE Announces Initial Slate of Tenants for New Retail Development East of Dallas

DALLAS – August 15, 2018  On behalf of RealtyLink and Oakridge Investments, CBRE announces an initial slate of tenants for the Crossroads at Terrell, a 190,000-square-foot retail development at the northwest corner of Interstate 20 and FM 148.

The Crossroads at Terrell is a 255-acre master-planned regional retail and mixed-used development servicing the eastern side of DFW and the greater East Texas area and is located adjacent to North Texas’s first Buc-ee’s Travel Center and a 52-acre future Baylor Scott & White Health medical campus.

A number of national retailers have executed transactions and are slated to open in Spring 2019, including:

  • Hobby Lobby
  • Ross
  • Five Below
  • Rack Room Shoes
  • Burke’s Outlet
  • Ulta
  • Marshall’s
  • Chick-Fil-A
  • Tru by Hilton
  • La Quinta

These new tenants will join Film Alley Movie Entertainment Center, a 74,000-square-foot movie theatre, bowling alley, and entertainment facility which is under construction and scheduled to open in 2019.  

“Texas is a growing market that RealtyLink has been looking to get into for some time,” said Phil Wilson with RealtyLink. “With Dallas-Fort Worth adding well over 100,000 residents per year over the last several years, The Crossroads at Terrell is a great place to start. The development is located in a dynamic regional trade area with a population of more than 230,000 that serves all of Kaufman and Van Zandt counties, making it a primary retail development and commercial hub for the entire region. Kaufman County is the fourth fastest growing county in Texas and the fastest growing county in North Texas. We are excited to get started on construction immediately.” 

In addition to Buc-ee’s and Film Alley, the development is gaining momentum from a number of restaurants who have already opened, including Taco Bueno, Panda Express, Freddy’s Frozen Custard, Starbucks, Chipotle, Whataburger, Discount Tire, Taco Cabana, and Dairy Queen.  Marriott Fairfield Inn also opened earlier this year. 

Andrew Lehner with CBRE in Dallas is marketing the project on behalf of RealtyLink. Shop space, restaurant space, and pad sites are still available.

Terrell: Gaining Unprecedented Momentum as a High Growth Region

Housing restoration, preservation, in-fill residential housing construction, newly-platted housing developments and commercial and retail development is surging in Terrell. The city’s Municipal Development Department is seeing valuation increases that demonstrate clear evidence of sustained development. For example, the department has seen an increase in permitting activity related to renovations in existing housing stock and structural repairs. The department also is working closely with developers of the Creekside Addition, bound by Poetry Road, Terrell High School, Long Elementary School and Arlie White Park. City Council approved a Residential Partnership Development Agreement on November 8, 2017; and city staff is currently reviewing the first phase. Additionally, Calvary Oaks housing development, which has been dormant for the last several years, now has record construction near West End Street in the Southwest area of town. Camden Homes, a developer in Town North Estates, is nearing completion of their build-out of three and four-bedroom brick homes within walking distance of Terrell High School.

“I am seeing the value of the City Council Comprehensive City Planning Efforts all coming together to strengthen core city neighborhoods and grow the local Terrell economy,” said Terrell Mayor D. J. Ory. “City planning efforts are driving the local economic growth.” ~Terrell Tribune~
