Baker St. Pub Inks 10-Year Lease for Village at Camp Bowie
By Connie Gore
Last updated: June 1, 2005 08:48am

FORT WORTH-The Houston owner of Baker St. Pub & Grill has inked a 10-year lease for the Village at Camp Bowie, a 350,000-sf redevelopment of a key retail corridor in West Fort Worth. The English pub concept, marking its third location in North Texas, will open doors in the fall.

The Baker St. Pub venue took down 6,500 sf in the 6333 Camp Bowie Blvd. center, where an end cap and inline space were teamed to get enough space for the operation, Mitch Traub, senior vice president with Dallas-based Retail Connection, tells GlobeSt.com. He says Hospitality USA has spent about a year looking for the right Fort Worth site. "We've been looking for this type of redevelopment," he adds.

Trophy Investments of Dallas bought the five-block foothold in June 2004, undertaking a $20-million overhaul of a landmark property and conversion into a class A mix of eclectic retail, restaurants and entertainment venues. The Baker St. lease was negotiated by Traub and Retail Connection senior vice president Dennis Leibovitz and former leasing agents, Lynn Dowdle and Elizabeth Farrell with Dallas-based Staubach Co. The Village at Camp Bowie's leasing contract was turned over to Venture Commercial Real Estate LLC in Dallas midway through the Baker St. negotiations.

Hospitality USA has Baker St. pubs in Arlington and Plano, but is in talks for a spot near NorthPark Mall in Dallas, Traub says. The expansion play includes the sister concept, Sherlock's Pub, which averages 8,500 sf versus Baker St.'s 6,500 sf. A Sherlock's Pub recently opened in Austin and two more will land at Quail Springs Mall in northwest Oklahoma City and Belmar near Denver. Next year brings a Sherlock's opening at Perkins Rowe in Baton Rouge, LA. Traub says Hospitality USA's expansion plan calls for five openings per year for several years.

Never been to a Baker St. But I know that Sherlock's is off the chain in the San Antonio 281 location. Good deal.

where is the Village at Camp Bowie locate at again? Does it exist, or is it planned?

Well, the developer is no longer working with Staubach to re-tenant the center. Venture Commercial is now the leasing company so I am not sure what that says about the project. :D

Well, some of Venture's other tenants include Willams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn, but Fort Worth already has both of those...I guess we will just have to wait and see.

I saw the redo about 2 weeks ago when I was in FW..absolutely wonderful. They did a great job. I noticed Baker Bros was opening a resturant there. They have wonderful. delicious sandwiches and salads. Someone should really post pics of the finished product.

If you hire Dallas leasing agents, you will get a bunch of me-too chain stores. The landlord is also from out of town so I suspect the intention was to lease largely if not exclusively to chains.

Not that the leasing agents or even the landlords are 100% in control of what tenants they wind up enlisting, however their initial plans/goals/expectations for the type of tenants greatly guides what ultimately happens as retail tenants tend to follow what is expected.

I will bet that they tried for a Crate & Barrell, it didn't work out (out of town retailers look at a demographic map of FW and are baffled). Such a junior anchor would have generated all the buzz the would have needed to get a few others to follow.

Isn't there a Tim Love restaurant going in there?

Interesting they dropped Staubach. You just cannot lease a building from 50 miles away.

It's on my list of things to do. I have been waiting for more tenants to open, so the center looks a little more finished.

Tim is building a nightclub for folks 30+ range, with a patio.

Baker Bros. is going in next door.

Baker St. Pub around the corner by the fountain, Martin & Co. being forced out and possibly replaced by Taco Diner or some sort of other rest.

Once all in, this will be another destination spot for Fort Worth rest. and bar areas.

I really like Baker Bros. (I'm assuming this is the deli.) Good sandwiches and soups, prices comparable to Quizno's with much better quality.

Wachoiva is opening a bank at that location. I like their other locations, very modern chic looking branches.

Any new leasing news for the Village?
Anyone know in which space Tim Love's new restaurant, Deuce, is supposed to go?
This leasing pace must be a serious disappointment for the investors. Upon close inspection, I realized that the actual storefront facades have only been painted and only minor cosmetic improvements have been made. I would guess that the investors at some point scaled back their improvements, leaving existing store fronts, 1970s era rough synthetic stucco, veneer ledge stone. These improvements will not stand the test of time, but rather act as an update that should grow tired in 10-15 years.

I wonder if the developer was unable to access as much capital as required to do the tenant improvements as well as the renovation properly and that is the cause for the lack of leases (i.e. limited to doing deals with tenants who are willing to pay for their own finish out or to retaining existing tenants).

I would love to see this project as well as the ones on 7th St (Museum Place, So7, and Montgomery Plaza) lease more than half of their spaces to locally-based, independent, unique retailers rather than the usual cast of national retailers.

From an email:
(Bistro) Louise is excited to announce the Grand Opening of Eurotazza Coffeehouse. Eurotazza features food made by Bistro Louise, including: Robert's breads, pastries, desserts, soups, panini and pizza.

Friday, March 24th
In the Village
6323 Camp Bowie Blvd., Suite 125

This is me:
I was hoping to hang out in there tonight (the 23rd) as there was a great crowd and I had 30 minutes to kill. Alas, it was a private gig, so I had to settle for Starbucks down the street.

But in my few minutes inside I felt very comfortable and welcome, in an "it's by invitation only" sort of way. I think this will be a great addition. Next to Ridglea Music.

The Baker Bros Deli, is a good offering and the Baker Street Pub in the backside is awesome on a Saturday night.

It looks like DUCE is under consturction. Not as full as I would expect but looking good.

Been a while since we talked about this development. I am sure they are struggling with their goal of "only" in fort worth retailers, especially, with the W 7th area heating up. They continue to fill spots, still a nice center compared to what was there and some nice shops.


Not sure if anyone noticed it but the ST had a blip about Multi-Family/ Retail and Parking Garage. The ST reported it was near Alta Meere but it was really this project. The developer appears to have lined up some supporter for an abatement for a garage to be built on the backside so they can develop more surface lots into retail w/ loft apts above.

I hope it works and does not end up like the Alta Apts across the street very surburban. They talked about it as a walkable development. Let's hope so.

I've always liked that whole stretch of Camp Bowie between Horne and the old Stripling Cox. The architecture is unique. Cafe Aspen is fantastic. Ovation is fantastic. Eurotazza is my favorite coffee house anywhere. And Duce just got named by Texas Monthly as one of the top steakhouses in the state. Folks are always touting the importance of local establishments. That area has a nice mix.

Looks Great!!! I hope this actually comes through and is not just speculation. This area needs some residential over retail components to add to the urban landscape and feel of the neighborhood.

was anyone at the Council meeting last night? I am wondering if Silcox voted for or against the tax breaks and how the rest of the council voted.


Disregard, I just found the council brief on the ST website. Looks like it went down 8-1 with Silcox casting the lone no.

Mr. Silcox seems to be having a rough year. Perhaps Bernie should move to the West Side and kick some dead wood a#$. Anyway, I've blathered on before about really liking that part of Camp Bowie. I'm glad the measure passed. That's a way under-the-radar and very cool part of Fort Worth and worth the attention... (Note, however, again from a Dallas developer...)

Owners of the Village at Camp Bowie say they still plan to file bankruptcy on the 23-acre, high-profile retail development shortly, despite the fact that the first mortgage loan on the property has changed hands.

There will soon be new construction at the Village at Camp Bowie.  Sprouts Farmers Market will be constructing a new grocery store along Sunset Drive, I think.  In addition to this, there will be a new freestanding building of approximately 9,000 square feet at 6324 Sunset and an infill building built between the new Sprouts and the existing retail strip at 6201 Sunset.

I'm sure Sprouts wanted to be at the Village at Camp Bowie rather than inside an older grocery building that had unsuccessfully been nearly every chain in the Fort Worth area.  Let's see, it has been Kroger, Winn-Dixie, Albertson's, Max, Jewel Osco, Skaggs Food and Drug Center, Skaggs Alpha Beta, and Skaggs Albertsons.  Those are the ones that I can remember.

Sprouts location will be from the ground up.  The multi-store list that I went through earlier today was for the abandoned store at Clayton Road East and Camp Bowie.

 

Going back to the Village at Camp Bowie, that strip along Sunset used to have more buildings and stores, but gradually those buildings were demolished.
