The Dallas company that built Sylvan | Thirty, the West Dallas mixed-retail development, has acquired a property nearby with plans to create another dining and retail space.

Oaxaca Interests plans to repurpose the W&B Refrigeration Service Company building at 660 Fort Worth Ave. The brick and metal structure, as well as its former loading areas, will be transformed into a family- and pet-friendly, indoor-outdoor destination.

"We hope to build off the momentum we’ve created with Sylvan | Thirty to create a new place for diverse communities to gather with family and friends," says Oaxaca president Brent Jackson in a release.

Oaxaca has plans for two to five tenants to inhabit the 10,000-square foot one-acre project, ideally a food hall, beer garden, retailers, or all of the above.

"The flexibility of the space, as well as its indoor and outdoor components, is perfectly suited for a food hall, beer garden and several smaller retailers and food artisans," Jackson says.

Architecture firm Lake Flato and landscape architect Hocker Design Group will lead the design; both collaborated on Sylvan | Thirty.
