Shopping center anchored by Sam’s Club is planned next door to Cityplace
A shopping center anchored by Sam's Club will be built on North Central Expressway near Cityplace.(Trammell Crow)
Developer Trammell Crow Co. is getting close to kicking off development of a key property adjacent to Dallas’ Cityplace community.
Last summer the Dallas-based commercial real estate bought 17 acres of the Affiliated Computer Services on North Central Expressway at Haskell Avenue.
The property is just north of the big Cityplace tower on the east side of the highway.
Since Crow’s purchase there has been lots of speculation about what kind of project the firm is planning on the prime, close-in building site.
Well at this week’s shopping center conference in Las Vegas, Crow has pulled the wraps on what it’s calling its East Village complex.
The office buildings on the old ACS site will be replaced by a large Sam’s Club store and a several small retail buildings lined up along the North Central frontage road, show pictures of the development Crow is displaying at the International Council of Shopping Centers conference.
Crow has done buildings for Sam’s Club and its parent company Wal-Mart before. They are both tenants in the Timber Creek Crossing shopping center in northeast Dallas which Crow developed.
It’s no surprise that Sam’s Club would want a location in central Dallas.
Competitor Costco has been looking at locations, too, including the old Steakley Chevrolet property on Northwest Highway.
