Construction on the new hotel and food hall on Grapevine Main Street is on track for a summer 2020 opening, officials said.

“We’re still on target,” said Tom Santora, the managing director of the Grapevine Main development, which includes the Harvest Hall food hall and Hotel Vin boutique hotel. He is also the chief commercial officer of Coury Hospitality, which is overseeing the development.

“Construction is rolling. There hasn’t been a drop-off," he said.

In the midst of Tarrant County’s stay at home order, construction crews are deemed essential and continue to work. Steps have been taken to ensure the workers' safety, such as spacing out tables during lunch and eliminating in-person meetings, Santora said.

Additionally, before coronavirus concerns peaked around the beginning of March, Coury Hospitality staff began providing gloves on the construction site for workers and anyone going onto the site for safety. This provides another layer of protection for workers in addition to hats, vests and glasses, Santora said.


“If you think about people touching stuff, that actually worked out to be helpful,” he said.

The city broke ground on the $114 million project in March 2018. The Grapevine Main development comprises an expansive, 38,000-square-foot outdoor plaza; a 42,000-square-foot, five-story rail station that will house the food hall with seven restaurant stalls; and Hotel Vin, a six-story, 120-room boutique hotel, all of which are supported by a 552-space parking garage.

Hotel Vin is scheduled to open at the end of June, and Harvest Hall is expected to open in mid-August. Santora and his team are continuing to hire people for the hotel.

“That's all still on track,” Santora said.
