Grapevine Is Booming

Grapevine Is Booming

Historic downtown Grapevine has always been a charming attraction, and now the area is about to hit a huge growth spurt. Bob Farley, Director of Economic Development for Grapevine, says they've “had almost $700 million worth of projects announced in the last 26 months--that's a lot of stuff”! Here's the SparkNotes version of what we can expect:

  • Construction of $1 billion+ TEX Rail line that will link downtown Fort Worth to DFW Airport

  • The city is designing a new commuter rail station set to open in 2018 and mixed-use project near the historic Cotton Belt Railroad. 

  • Next to the station, there will be a small boutique hotel (probably about 120 rooms), and a plaza will sit between the station and Main Street. 

  • A Dallas-based apartment developer has broken ground on a rental community near the rail line on Dallas Road. The dual buildings with 250 units will include retail space, a dog park, and additional parking for the area. 

  • The Gaylord Texan recently completed a $5MM expansion of its swimming pool resort area. Now it's taking on a $120MM expansion that will add 300 hotel rooms and 86,000 sq. ft. of meeting space!

  • A Wisconsin-based developer is also planning to begin work next year on a $330MM Grapevine resort that will feature a waterpark, miniature golf, laser tag, rock-climbing, restaurants and a spa.

  • Mercedes-Benz is building a regional parts warehouse and training center on Lakeside Parkway.

  • Kubota Tractor Corporation's North American headquarters is relocating to the same area from Southern California. The $50MM campus is located just north of DFW Airport and will be fully operational by late January.
