What we reported
Construction on MetroPark Square, a 69-acre mixed-use development at the southeast corner of the I-45 and Hwy. 242 intersection in Shenandoah began in November 2016. The three-phase project by Sam Moon Group is expected to be completed by 2020 and will include restaurant and entertainment options, office space, hotels and multifamily housing. Adjacent to MetroPark Square is Centro, a 13-acre development by Palmetto MDR, that will feature 78 single-family homes, 18 townhomes and two commercial buildings. Construction on this project was slated to begin in spring 2017.
Tenants announced for MetroPark Square include an AMC-10 movie theater; a 40,000-square-foot Dave & Busters; an Asian fusion restaurant, Huynh Restaurant; and a 4,000-square-foot ramen and sushi eatery called Hanabi Ramen. The AMC-10 was originally set to open in fall 2017; however, officials said the movie theater is now expected to open in May. Opening dates for the remaining tenants have not been announced; however, construction is underway on multiple sites as of early January.
