Victory Park has five new tenants moving in that include a branch of Buzzbrews, the 24-hour restaurant chain, and a Jimmy John's sandwich shop.

"With the sheer volume of activity and development in Victory Park right now, the leasing interest is contagious," said Terry Montesi, CEO of Trademark, the Fort Worth developer. "Our focus is on crafting the right mix of retail, which is seen in the diversity of these new tenants and the needs they meet within the neighborhood."

The full list of tenants newly opened or coming soon to Victory Park include the following:

  • Buzzbrews, open 24 hours with breakfast all the time. It's scheduled to open in fall 2015.
  • Jimmy John's sandwich chain. Slated to open in spring 2015 at 2416 Victory Park Ln.
  • Victory Park CrossFit, also opening in spring 2015, at 2312 Victory Park Ln.
  • Read Between the Lines, a stationery store specializing in art prints, greeting cards, and wine and spirit bags. The store is open at 2412 Victory Park Ln.
  • Simply Elegant, a floral design store, open at 2424 Victory Park Ln.

They join a lineup at Victory Park that includes Chad Rookstool Salon, Cook Hall, Crossroads, Hard Rock Cafe, The Hanger, Havana Social Club, House of Blues, Kenichi, Medina Oven & Bar, Metro Tickets, Naga Thai Kitchen & Bar, Olivella's Neo Pizza Napoletana, Office of Angela Scott, Shooters and Victory Tavern.

"These deals are just the beginning," Montesi says. "We're in negotiations with a number of tenants, and we're excited to continue announcing new retail additions throughout the coming months."

The area is under redevelopment with an office tower and numerous residential projects, including a 400-unit apartment complex in what used to be a parking lot for American Airlines Center. They're also doing street improvements on Olive Street and Victory Park Lane, to further connectivity between American Airlines Center and the southern area of Victory Park.

Victory Park is a property of UST XVI Victory Park, a German real estate investment fund, which became an equity owner of Victory Park in 2005 and the sole owner of the Victory Park buildings in 2009.
