Market Street will open in Flower Mound by 2013
It was a long time coming, said one councilman.
FLOWER MOUND The Flower Mound Town Council on Monday approved a site plan for a grocery store-anchored retail center, which will include Market Street, at The River Walk at Central Park.
The site plan also includes three retail buildings, which is expected to include restaurants, though the tenants have not been identified yet.
The retail center represents the last component of the first phase of The River Walk, a mixed-use development located north of FM 1171 and east of FM 2499.
Bringing a high-end grocery store to this area had been discussed for years. Things started taking shape last December when Market Street submitted a draft development plan to the town.
“This has been a long time coming,” said Councilman Steve Dixon. “And we look forward to it.”
Plans for Market Street include a 55,000-square-foot facility at the northeast intersection of FM 1171 and FM 2499.
Market Street representative Warren Creason said the store will feature hot entrees, a custom salad board, fresh sushi, gourmet coffee, a large fruit and meat selection, and other groceries.
The store will be smaller than many of its other locations, such as the one in Coppell. Because of that, the Flower Mound location won’t have a cooking school.
The store will also not have a fuel center.
Creason said the store could open by the fall of 2013, and he said three months before the opening, the store will host a mass hire event. The store is expected to employ about 200 people.
