Richardson, Texas -- Commercial real estate development and investment firm KDC announced that Regency Centers will build a 40,000-sq.-ft. store for Whole Foods Market in its CityLine Market development at KDC’s 186-acre mixed-use CityLine project in Richardson, Texas.
“We are excited to have Whole Foods Market as our grocer and enthusiastic about how this offering will enhance the CityLine experience for its residents, office workers and visitors,” said KDC’s Walt Mountford. “Whole Foods’ healthy offerings underscore what CityLine will be: a walkable and livable environment showcasing an ease of lifestyle with parks and trails situated amid businesses, residents and entertainment.”
Whole Foods Market will anchor the initial 81,000-sq.-ft. phase of Regency Centers’ CityLine Market, a retail center located on 11.3 acres at the intersection of Renner Road and Plano Road.
Whole Foods at CityLine is slated to open in spring 2016. “We were attracted to the vibrancy of the urban environment of CityLine, literally on the border of Richardson and Plano,” said Mark Dixon, Southwest Regional President of Whole Foods Market. “The green spaces and parks round out the project for a more tranquil feel within such a busy intersection.”
CityLine features dense urban development with easy access to office, residential, retail, entertainment and parks. The $600 million, 2.3 million-sq.-ft. initial phase of CityLine construction is slated for completion in late 2015. It includes hotel, apartments, a wellness and fitness facility, medical office building and a 3.5-acre park with trails.
