Richardson's shiny new CityLine complex signs on more restaurants
Five more restaurants have been announced for CityLine, the mixed-use complex being developed in Richardson at the corner of 75 and George Bush, including a branch of Taco Diner, the more casual sibling of Mi Cocina.
All five restaurant tenants are chains; three are established, and two are newbies. In addition to Taco Diner, the established entities include fast-casual Asian chain Pei Wei and Smashburger. On the newer side are healthy chain Modmarket and Luna Grill, a relatively new-to-Dallas chain from San Diego.
They're part of CityLine Market, a traditional retail center that sits at the entrance of the greater complex called CityLine, which includes offices, an Aloft hotel, Look Cinema and nearly 4,000 new residential units. It's located just off the George Bush Turnpike and within walking distance of the George Bush DART light rail stop.
CityLine Market will be anchored by a Whole Foods Market and will serve not only CityLine employees and residents, but also the Richardson community, according to Ryan Griffin, a representative from the Regency Centers, which is developing the shopping center.
"The leasing interest has been substantial, to say the least," Griffin says. Other new tenants signed by Regency include 18|8 Fine Men's Salon, Massage Envy Spa, CityLine Dental, The Joint Chiropractic and Luxx Lash.
Luna Grill is a San Diego-based fast-casual restaurant offering fresh, natural and healthy Mediterranean cuisine. The chain has 10 locations in California, and opened its first in Texas in Flower Mound in mid-2014. Modmarket is the Colorado-based healthy concept that likes Dallas-Fort Worth in a big way, with branches currently open in Plano, Flower Mound and a newly-opened branch in Dallas at Preston Hollow Village.
The CityLine complex is owned by KDC, which has already signed on Jasper's, chef Kent Rathbun's regional American restaurant; Top Pot Doughnuts, the Seattle-based chain; Tom+Chee, a grilled cheese restaurant; and pizza chain Coal Vines.
CityLine Market is scheduled to open in the spring of 2016.
