New FedEx hub lands on site of landmark Big Town mall in Mesquite
Steve Brown
April 20, 2016



Quote:
A Mesquite property with a storied past will be the site of a major new distribution hub.

FedEx will locate a large regional distribution center on the former site of the Big Town shopping center on U.S. Highway 80 near Buckner Boulevard.

The development tract was previously the site of the Dallas-area’s first shopping mall, which opened in 1959.
Quote:
Dallas-based developer Scott Rohrman’s 42 Real Estate LLC is building the 334,000-square-foot shipping hub for FedEx.

“It will take up most of the site,” Rohrman said. “We’ll have the building finished by December.

“But they are installing an automated sorting facility which will take six months or longer to get running,” he said. “FedEx probably won’t start operations until September of next year.”

FedEx chose the site because of its location at the intersection of Interstate-30 and U.S. 80 which is also close to LBJ Freeway.
Quote:
The first enclosed shopping center of its kind in the state, Big Town originally had Sanger Bros., Montgomery Ward and JC Penney department stores.

2,000-home community being built on site of former Folsom family horse farm in Collin County
Steve Brown
April 25, 2016



Quote:
The 682-acre Mustang Ranch community under construction northeast of Prosper is on the site of former Dallas mayor Robert Folsom’s thoroughbred horse farm.

Developers are turning the one-time family farm into a residential community called Mustang Lakes with nine lakes, over 60 acres of open space and 10 miles of trails.

“We hope to deliver the first home lots to builders in June if it will quit raining,” said Matt Alexander, vice president of development with Cambridge Cos.
Quote:
As part of the new community, the Folsom family’s ranch house on the property will be repurposed as a community center.
Quote:
“The decision was made to keep the house for the history value and because of all the trees surrounding it. “We are expanding it to about 12,000 square feet overlooking a 5 to 6 acre lake.
Quote:
He said the developers have preserved large trees the Folsoms planted on the farm.

“We’ve moved 22 live oak trees between 17 and 22 inches in diameter,” Alexander said.
Quote:
“We think the prices will be starting in the $300,000s,” Alexander said. “We have some one-acre lots we think will be for homes around a million dollars.”

Big movie theater project moving ahead at Richardson’s CityLine project
Steve Brown
May 2, 2016



Quote:
Developers of Richardson’s $1.5 billion CityLine project are pushing ahead with plans to add a multiscreen cinema complex.
Quote:
The planned LOOK Cinema will be next door to State Farm Insurance’s fourth, 17-story office tower, which is winding up construction.

Along with building the cinema, KDC is asking Richardson city planners for approval to build temporary surface parking that would serve the new theater.
Quote:
The CityLine theater and parking would be built just south of the Bush Turnpike in what is called CityLine East. KDC also plans 500 apartments and more than 20,000 square feet of retail space at CityLine East.

The CityLine Market shopping center in that area is already fully leased. And plans have been approved for a 32-home community of single-family houses next door to the retail center.

The cinema complex and temporary parking lots would occupy three tracts just south of the Bush Turnpike. (City of Richardson)

Quote:
CEO Steve M. Scheel said the company has been scoping out Texas for 10 years. The store will be its biggest Scheels, he said. Construction will begin in 2018.

Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, which owns Nebraska Furniture Mart and Grandscape, said he’s “very excited to have Scheels” in the project.
Quote:
“The Scheels experience will bring millions of visitors to Grandscape furthering our vision of making this development one of the best in the United States.”
