Grapevine Towne Center, a 330,000-square-foot commercial hub of dining and retail options, is in the midst of some big renovations. Developed by Weitzman Group in 1994, the complex sits on SH 114 between William D. Tate and Ira E. Woods avenues.
It is now the second biggest shopping center in Grapevine after Grapevine Mills Mall, said Dan Truex, economic development manager for the city of Grapevine.
Grapevine Towne Center features storefronts for over 20 businesses, including Ross, Office Depot, Sprint, Bottlecap Alley Icehouse Grill and Jason’s Deli, according to the development’s website.
Renovations are slated to be complete by the end of 2019, said Ian Pierce, vice president of Weitzman’s communications, in an email.
“The center is being renovated to keep a healthy shopping environment up to date and to add lifestyle elements such as pedestrian-friendly features such as arbors and seating areas,” Pierce said.
Work has already begun with new paint, introducing a brighter color palette on building facades, Dan said. Other improvements include new LED lighting, awnings, benches and directional signage. It is a $979,000 project, he said.
“It just beautifies the area,” Truex said. “It gives it a more upgraded image.”
