Inside the River Walk
The developer of Flower Mound’s 158-acre River Walk at Central Park is closer than ever to delivering the retail, restaurants and public amenities promised more than a decade ago.

Sarah Dodd, a spokesperson for developer Centurion American Development Group, said the development’s wedding chapel and reception hall are expected to be complete in the spring with the restaurants opening in the summer or early fall. The farmers market and amphitheater will follow in 2020, she said.

“The variety of restaurant concepts that will overlook the scenic river walk along with the chapel inside the development will be a unique addition to Flower Mound that we’ve designed with the residents in mind,” CADG President and CEO Mehrdad Moayedi said. “We are excited to see these projects come to fruition in 2019.”

The development, which is located north of FM 1171, west of Morriss Road and east of FM 2499, was first approved in 2008.

The assorted eateries coming soon to the River Walk were hand-selected, said Courtney Morrow, the company’s director of marketing.

The design of each location will reflect the uniqueness of the community, she said.

Restaurants coming to the River Walk include Nate Champion’s Prime Steak & Chop House, Cuvee Wine Bar & Restaurant, River Social, Pizzeria Ascoli and FloMo’s Burgers, according to a September announcement.

“We didn’t see these concepts around the development,” Morrow said. “And we feel like these restaurants sit well with the demographics of the community.”

CADG has not finalized whether Primo’s Tex Mex or another brand will be the Mexican restaurant coming to the development, Morrow said.

As of December the town had not received any permits for the restaurants, said Andrea Roy, Flower Mound Economic Development Director.

“At this time, the developer is constructing the shell/exterior of the restaurant buildings,” she said. “Finish-out permits will have to be obtained to construct the interior restaurant spaces.”

Roy said finish-out permits can take approximately 1-3 months to obtain through the town, but can be sooner.

“The town’s turnaround time to return initial comments to the submitter is 10 business days,” she said.  “If the permit application is complete and the applicant responds to comments quickly, things can be done in under a month.”
