The Shoppes At West Park

1 post in this topic

Texarkana is poised to continue its explosive retail growth by landing a new shopping mall right in the middle of a northwest side development hot spot. The Shoppes at West Park is planned for acreage north of I-30 between Gander Mountain and the Orr Auto Group dealerships. According to the website of the developer, MBC Holdings of Jonesboro, Ark., and Memphis, the first phase of the development comprises about 700,000 square feet of land near University Avenue and I-30. The project is described as being in its initial development stage. The Texarkana trade area includes more than 300,000 residents. The Shoppes at West Park will seek out a variety of different shoppers. It's estimated that hundreds of millions of dollars leave the area every year because people don't have choices here. The Shoppes is planned to be an outdoor mall with a distinctive look. It embraces the village concept and creates a little cityscape. The main mall area planned for Texarkana, which is called a lifestyle center, and the power center located next to it amount to nearly a million square feet. Power centers are normally anchored by a grocery store. The main lifestyle center portion of The Shoppes will consist of 3 department stores, restaurant spaces and other retail properties. The Shoppes will border the booming Texarkana Pavillion and Richmond Ranch shopping complexes. Apartments and condos are also planned for the area. Richard Reynolds, a local developer, said the area is already considered to be a little Dallas for people in surrounding towns. He also said that with all the new proposed development, more money will stay in Texarkana instead of going to other cities like Dallas and Shreveport. Texarkana, Tx, Mayor James Bramlett is excited about the project and thinks it to be a real catalyst to help further complete the parcel of property between Gander Mountain and the Pavillion shopping complex. Also property between University and Richmond Rd along Gibson Lane is expected to be developed as well. It also bodes well for Texarkana's economic future in the coming years even though the rest of the country appears to be in a slow down now the mayor added. In addition to The Shoppes at West Park MBC Holdings lists The Peabody Little Rock, The Mall at Turtle Creek in Jonesboro, and the Hilton Little Rock Metro Center under the property development section on its Website.
