Tarrant County's Largest New Retail: Hunter Crossroads
Construction is halfway complete on the Walmart Supercenter at Hunter Crossroads Shopping Center, the largest retail project under way in Tarrant County. Walmart is the first major retailer to locate in the center, which is part of a larger 160-acre mixed-use development thatll serve Fort Worths Sendera Ranch area. A 20k SF retail development fronting US 287 will break ground in May, and McDonalds has committed to build a restaurant at the property.
Transwesterns Steve Williamson and Mason Bishop are leasing the project; Steve says developer Hunter Crossroads LP picked the site for Fort Worths business climate, population growth, and retail sales potential. Walmart will open in September in a 180k SF footprint, a more efficient prototype in lieu of its traditional 220k SF layout. It had purchased the land in 08 but delayed construction until road access was improved at the intersection of 287 and Avondale-Haslet Rd. The latter street is being expanded to a four-land divided boulevard with center turn lane in front of Walmart, and a new exit ramp off 287 was constructed to improve access to the project.
