With its stylish architecture, modern design and unique retail with al fresco options, CityLine metroplex has the North Texas area buzzing with excitement as recent updates come to the massive 186-acre mixed-use development.
GlobeSt.com recently published an article identifying growth patterns in the North Texas market, pinpointing the North Dallas region, specifically Richardson, as “stealing the limelight in the massive market.”
Tracie Fraizier, the Director of Marketing at KDC, the commercial real estate company developing the CityLine property, describes the project as, “A unique destination in Richardson. With its vast scale, density and various attractions, it is our hope that it becomes the true downtown for the City of Richardson. CityLine will offer Richardson residents, and those who live and work nearby, the benefits and convenience of an urban environment found in Dallas, but in closer proximity to their homes in the suburbs.”
At full build-out, CityLine will contain approximately six million square feet (SF) of office space, two hotels, nearly 4,000 multi-family residential units, 300,000 SF of grocery, restaurant, entertainment and retail space, and three parks.
“The retail is a crucial element of the master-plan design of and goals for CityLine. CityLine is designed to be an active, vibrant and amenity-rich environment, and the retail will help supply much of the ‘life’ and ‘energy’ for the project. We envision an active sidewalk scene at CityLine, with patio seating in front of restaurants and bars,” continues Tracie.
Sharing similar ethos for creating desirable and thriving centers, Regency Centers partnered with KDC on this project to develop CityLine Market. The market is located on 11.3 acres and contains over 81,000 SF of retail, and will serve as the cornerstone of essential retail and dining to the massive mixed-use development.
Regency Centers’ Vice President and Regional Officer, Matthew Booth states, “With a daytime population of over 145,000 people and a purchasing power over $90,000, CityLine Market lives in booming area of growth and development. We’re beyond excited for what we’re putting together here, and how our grocery anchored retail will enhance what is already a fantastic project.”
Just last week, Regency Centers’ announced the newest tenant line-up at CityLine Market and local headlines captured the anticipation:
