Add a multi-story hotel, a new fast food eatery and an automotive service location to the latest announced additions to the commercial development lineup planned for the Terrell Market Center area development.
A four-or-five story Fairfield Inn hotel should add a lodging component to the area, according to Terry Capehart, Terrell municipal development director.
“They’re still working on plans but it looks like it will be either four or five stories,” Capehart said. He announced those plans at Tuesday’s planning and zoning commission meeting.
During the meeting the commission approved a final plat for Carl’s Jr., a fast food restaurant known for its hamburgers. Capehart said this will be the third independent restaurant to be constructed close to Buc-ee’s travel plaza in the 92-acre Terrell Market Center development.
“Primary access will be off of FM 148 on a public access easement roadway called Walker Way with secondary access from Crossroads Parkway to Terrell Market Center Drive, which runs behind the proposed restaurant,” he said. Carl’s Jr. will go onto a 0.98-acre parcel and is being developed by Verdad Real Estate of Southlake.
Capehart said a new Discount Tire store is being planned for a corner plat across Walker Way and FM 148. Assuming plans for the new Fairfield Inn are finalized and approved it will be going in behind Discount Tire along Walker Way.
Across FM 148 adjacent to the Shell station initial site work should start in coming months on commercial pad parcels with one of those already committed to a Chick-fil-A, Capehart said. Chick-fil-A is planned for a parcel next to the Shell station, he said.
Previously announced were plans for a new Starbucks coffee location. Capehart said Starbucks is planned for Terrell Market Center on the parcel closest to Buc-ee’s.
