When an 180,000-sq.-ft. Walmart Supercenter opens at Hunter Crossroads this fall, it will mark the first major retail opening in the shopping center, which is part of a larger 160-acre planned mixed-use project.
Developed by Hunter Crossroads LP, the center is being leased by Transwestern, based in Dallas.
Construction on the new Walmart is more than halfway completed; expected opening date is September 2013 and the store will feature Walmart’s smaller, more efficient prototype in lieu of its more traditional 220,000-sq.-ft. layout.
In addition to the new Walmart, an adjacent 20,000-sq.-ft. retail development is expected to break ground in May. McDonald’s has committed to build a new restaurant at the property and other junior anchor retailers are currently negotiating for space, including quick-service restaurants, sit-down restaurants and convenience stores.
