Kitchen supply store to open its first Fort Worth store
FORT WORTH, Texas (Feb. 2, 2016) – Trademark Property Co. today announced that Sur La Table, the kitchen-supply store for those with a passion for cooking and a love for food, will open this summer at Waterside, the developer’s 63-acre mixed-use property currently under construction at Bryant Irvin Road and Arborlawn Drive.
“Sur La Table is a natural fit into the tenant lineup we’re building at Waterside,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “Retailers and restauranteurs alike have been overwhelmingly positive in their support of our unique vision for Waterside. Sur La Table was particularly complimentary of our commitment to the local and artisan. We look forward to continuing the momentum with more announcements in the coming months.”
“We are thrilled to open another Sur La Table store in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, bringing even more jobs to the neighborhood and satisfying the needs of residents who share our passion for cooking,” says Diane Neal, CEO of Sur La Table. “Our stores offer an unparalleled selection of exclusive and premium-quality goods for the kitchen and dining table and we’re excited to bring our store and lauded culinary program to the Forth Worth community. As one of the largest avocational cooking programs nationwide, we will be offering a diverse and exciting schedule of hands-on cooking classes, led by classically trained chefs.”
As part of its first phase of development, which is slated for completion in 2016, Waterside also will welcome Whole Foods Market, REI, Taco Diner, Zoë’s Kitchen, Blaze Pizza, Tokyo Joes, and additional retailers and local, chef-driven restaurants.
Waterside is the first ground-up project developed as part of Trademark’s Conscious Place initiative, a stakeholder-driven development model that aims to ensure that its properties are more than just places of commerce, but also places of community and meaning. In support of this initiative, all aspects of Waterside’s development are being evaluated for their potential to educate, inspire and engage stakeholders; commitment to sustainability; and connection to the local community.
Planned Conscious Place elements include “The Grove at Waterside,” a vibrant public space designed around several heritage trees that will feature micro-restaurants by local entrepreneurs, outdoor seating venues, public art by Texas artist Bob Wade utilizing repurposed amusement rides, playground equipment and photography, a community pavilion, a community promotion shed and activity areas. Additional Conscious Place elements will include an extension of the Trinity Trails, consisting of a trailhead with a bicycle repair and air station, chilled filtered water for re-fillable bottles, an internal trail system, a signature bridge, canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, an urban garden and a riverfront amphitheater, to name a few.
In addition to tenant openings, Phase I at Waterside also will include 383 multi-family units. At full build out, Waterside will be a walkable, dynamic district including 200,000 square feet of retail space and riverside restaurants, 800 multifamily residential units, two to three hotels, office buildings and potential for additional high density single family housing, much of which will be situated along the Trinity River.
