Construction on The Grand Parkway Town Center in Tomball is slated to begin sometime in February, said Andrew Alvis, NewQuest vice president and development partner, in an email Jan. 9.

The Grand Parkway Town Center is located at the intersection of Hwy. 249 and the Grand Parkway toll road in Tomball.

Alvis said NewQuest is hoping to start delivering some retail and restaurants in the third quarter.

In a Jan. 10 phone call, he confirmed that Gringo’s Tex-Mex is one of the restaurants that will be built in the new development. This is Gringo's second new location announced in the North Houston area in 2023 after Community Impact reported Gringo's Mexican Kitchen broke ground on a Conroe location early January.

The Grand Parkway development has been in the works since at least 2017, according to previous Community Impact reporting.
