Developers are breaking ground soon on a Tarrant County mixed-use development being built on the former site of a regional shopping mall. Centurion American Development group purchased more than 50 acres on Grapevine Highway in North Richland Hills where North Hills Mall once stood. The shopping center closed and was torn down in 2007 to make way for a mixed-use project called City Point. North Richland Hills built a new city hall and a public safety and municipal court complex on part of the property.
Now Centurion American is moving ahead with a residential and commercial project on the adjoining land. “Centurion American is currently in the design phase of this project and will begin development in the first quarter of 2020,” Centurion American’s Trevor Kollinger said. “We are proud to introduce an exciting, new mixed-use development to North Richland Hills, which will include 364 single-family lots, 8 acres of multifamily development, 60,000 square feet of commercial space, a hotel site, an amenity center, a trail system and green space.
“This will be a transformational project for the community.” The North Richland Hills project is the second mall redevelopment for Centurion American, which is one of North Texas’ busiest developers. Centurion American is replacing the 37-year-old Collin Creek Mall on U.S. Highway 75 in Plano with a $1 billion-plus mixed-use project with thousands of new homes, commercial space and parks. The North Hills Mall site is smaller but will also have a broad mix of construction. “We are excited to see redevelopment in this area of North Richland Hills moving forward and believe it will be a catalyst for additional redevelopment and revitalization in the area,” Mayor Oscar Trevino said in a statement. Centurion American is the developer that restored downtown Dallas’ landmark Statler Hotel. It has residential projects throughout North Texas. The developer also recently started a 54-acre housing and commercial development called Iron Horse Village on land next to the historic rodeo arena in Mesquite.
