Throughout the years Overton Park Plaza at the northeast corner of I-20 and Hulen has always been near 100% occupied with its big box stores. However, the bad economy is starting to show its face at the center. The old Circuit City space has been vacant for quite some time and now the Albertson's is closing. I stopped in at PetSmart and saw the Albertson's was having a liquidation sale. I then went over there and bought a lot of groceries with the smallest discount beign 10% off. Some discounts were greater. I asked around and the store employees stated that nothing was going to replace the Albertson's grocery in the immediate future. The space will be vacant.

Yes I live in Northeast Fort Worth near the Hurst border and we too now have several vacancies... Ethan Allen on 820, Circuit City, Albertson's, SYMS, Comp USA, Hollywood Video. http://www.hursted.c...ss/hotspots.htm

How about Sprouts Farmers Market or its lesser extent, Newflower Farmers Market? Specs, anyone?

I read elsewhere that H-E-B (grocery chain) is scouting for locations across the DFW metroplex – perhaps, with a new concept (i.e., hybrid format as seen in Houston).

With Hurst, abandoned storefronts could be blessing in disguise due to construction along Segment 2 (West Fork Tollway?) in the near future – once northeast Loop 820 is completed.

That Power Center has always been full, I have been wondering when PetSmart leaves they have that new one only blocks away by Best Buy. I kept hearing rumours that Home Depot was looking for a new location but I guess that stalled out. I wonder why Albertson's closes this one and but opens a new one in the old Minyards?

Yes, over the years that center has been almost fully occupied. The old restaurant pad that housed Tia's has been vacant for a number of years, in addition to the big box vacancies.

In the thread about the grocery store shuffle in the TCU Area, the explanation about Albertson's opening up in the old Minyard's space is pretty clear. The TCU store was profitable and because Kroger purchased their building, they didn't want to leave a profitable location, so they bought out the nearest store they could find. It is interesting they are serving the same market area with one less store and with less square feet than what was present in the smallest store.

Because Westcliff Plaza must be super duper cheap relative to University or Hulen. The StarTel-Gram said that DFW is the most competitive grocery market in the country. Then HEB starts nosing around and Aldi moves in. I think it is likely that one or more of the newcomers will fold; maybe Albertson's is hunkering down waiting for the storm to pass. I live near the one at Sycamore School and McCart and we shop there often. I've wondered whether they would close but they just keep pluggin' along.

We used to eat at Tia'a off Hulen after church most Sundays. I think most all their locations are closed now. The ones in Grapevine and Lewisville closed down about 3 or 4 years ago. Now we have a Uncle Julios a block north of where the old Tia's in Grapevine sits. The Tia's building have all set vacant.

With H-E-B in Burleson slated for 2011, I wouldn’t be surprised if they will be signing leases within the DFW metroplex within a year or two.

Being a competitive market, you say, that may be one reason why Walmart is downsizing its stores – mainly in new locations.

Great news for Fort Worth!! Sprouts has leased a portion of the old Albertson's on I-20 and Hulen. Due to open the beginning of next year. See today's Star-Telegram for the info. FINALLY!

Check for Sprouts Farmers Market – see my post above. CompUSA needs to come on board. New stores are located in Plano, Euless and eventually, Arlington.

Did I mention that Circuit City might be revived in terms of re-branding?

Kroger Fresh Fare (near TCU) will open this June, following with H-E-B (Burleson) in August – in addition, Sprouts Farmers Market during the early part of 2011.

With the addition of Sprouts, the center will undergo a $2 million renovation. Stone and stucco will be added to the facade of the center from one end to the other. In addition to the facade, new landscaping will be added.

The current vacancies include a 32,000 SF former Circuit City space, 30,000 SF half of the old Albertson's store next to Sprouts, several 1,000 to 2,000 SF spaces, and a 6,000 SF pad site facing I-20. I'm guessing that's the old Tia's space.

Good to hear, it needs a facelift. Maybe breaking those huge parking lots up with some trees? There was a rumour a few years back that Home Depot was going to move out, anyone heard anything lately?

That's really interesting. I'm there quite a bit and I've often wondered what's limiting occupancy. I thought aesthetics might play a role, but I personally think they did a nice job with the design originally. Quality materials, clean simple lines without a lot of cheap adornment, interesting design elements like the curved wall thing. It looks a little dated, but not awful.

It makes me wonder if it's possible to create a really timeless design for a strip mall or is it simply the nature of automobile oriented retail to have to freshen up every 15 - 20 years?

If you look up and down Hulen Street you'll notice that the Texas chic stone fronts are getting to be standard on "first tier" shopping centers.

In fact, they just completed a rennovation. They took out the self-serve registers (which I loathed when they went in, but I kinda got used to them). With an Aldi and Wal-Mart to contend with at that corner, I think they see their niche as the "full service" grocery in that area.

Yep. I saw the sign yesterday- Pizza Inn and Five Guys. There is a Five Guys near my sis-in-law's home in Albany, NY, but they say they never go there cuz it's too expensive.

Sprouts is really moving forward in Overton Park Plaza. The roadway in the parking lot is blocked in front of the store; apparently they are putting new entrances in- two entrances facing out. (The old Albertson's doors faced to the side.) It's good to see the energy going into that place.

Greetings all. This is my first post! newlaugh.gif

I live nearby and have noticed signs for a Jersey Mike's Subs between Five Guys and the Pizza Inn.

Also, it appears as though Texas Roadhouse will be moving into the former Tia's Tex-Mex space in Overton Park Plaza.

Thanks for the welcome Andy and yes, RPLS is what you think it is. Always nice to meet a fellow RPLS.

The Tia'a Tex-Mex location did have a TABC liquor sign out front saying it was for a Texas Roadhouse and now that sign is long gone and there is no work being done to the building so maybe it's not happening???

I find it hard to get enthusiastic about a chained called Texas Roadhouse with a corporate headquarters in Kentucky:

Texas Roadhouse
6040 Dutchman’s Lane
Louisville, KY 40205

...especially when they've sued several real Texas roadhouses to get them to change their names. Better than an empty building, though, I guess.

Here's an updated site plan from the developer. The most notable addition is Buy Buy Baby, which will take up the other half of the old Albertsons space. A jewelry store and Thai restaurant are also new. But, as Texas Roadhouse prepares to move in, TGI Friday's has left.

Along the two miles of South Hulen Street from I-20 to Granbury Road, that makes at least five casual sit-down restaurants that have gone out of business in the past 3-4 years: Applebee's, Don Pablo's, Bennigan's, Golden Corral and now Friday's. To the area's credit, a number of them (and other empty spaces) have been reoccupied, but it seems like South Hulen, like many suburban areas that boomed in the '80s and '90s, now has to work hard just to keep its head above water.

I don't know about others', but I avoid Hulen south of I-20 and the whole CityView area as much as possible due the the PITA congestion. I really have to have a good reason to think about going there.

I wouldn't count South Hulen as dead just yet. Of the five restaurants you mentioned, two of them (Applebee's and Don Pablo's), were closed as part of a larger corporate retrenching, and of course, Bennigan's shut down nationwide. On a positive note, the retail center that replaced Bennigan's filled quickly with tenants, including a couple of smaller chain restaurants, and the parking lot is full just about all the time. The Buffalo Wild Wings that replaced Don Pablo's packs in far more people than Don Pablo's ever did. The Cotton Patch, which replaced Applebee's, looks to be doing pretty well, and the Red Lobster, which has been on Hulen forever, still has a waiting list for a table, even on most weeknights.

As far as Overton Park Plaza, the thing that hurt this center the most was the opening of Chapel Hill. A couple of upscale stores left for the glitzier center to the north. My impression is that Chapel Hill attracts wealthier customers, customers who previously would have had to drive to Overton Park Plaza. To a lesser extent, the opening of University Village put a dent in the center's attractiveness as well. I figure both Chapel Hill and University Village have more higher income households in their market area, so a repositioning was inevitable.

I believe Overton Park Plaza was the first, "Power Center" built in Fort Worth. It is yet to be seen if the concept will work for the long-term. It sure is hard to attract customers when a couple of big-box retailers leave. What's that saying about all your eggs in one basket?

Don't count the Hulen area out just yet... Hulen Mall is expanding by adding an outdoor plaza the will house Fort Worth's first Abuelo's Mexican Food and BJ's Brewhouse with room for up to two more restaurants. The new addition should be open by November. Here is the article and site plan http://www.fwbusines...r-plaza.html>>>

I had known about BJ's going in at the mall for a couple of weeks, but I wasn't sure where they were going to build it. At first, I thought they might demolish the old Larry's Shoes building. Now I know the specifics. Thanks for posting the link.

I would have never thought of OPP as a "power center". It was all discount and big box stores. No fancy stuff, really. IMHO

I believe that it would be considered a "Power Center". Here's a definition: A shopping center with few Tenants, most of them Anchor Tenants. Generally, a power center's anchor tenants are ‘category killers,' that is, the dominant retailers in the markets they serve.

The best reason for me to head to Overton Park Plaza is the opening of Sprouts! Thrilled to have it in Fort Worth.
Having lived in Fort Worth in the 90s and again mid 2000s to now, I think Hulen/Bryant Irvin has a much stronger retail presence than it used to. But I do avoid the area certain times of the day and year--it's an automobile disaster area.

Who left Overton Park Plaza for Chapel Hill?

James Avery, which sells Christian-themed jewelry, and Whatchamacallit, which sells prom dresses, were originally in Overton Park Plaza. When Chapel Hill opened, they moved to that center. While not "big-box", they did occupy fairly large amounts of the retail space, and attracted a lot of customers on their own.

It may seem strange that I referred to a store that sells prom dresses as "upscale". While the term may not apply to the style, as any parent of a teenage girl can attest, it definitely describes the price tags.

Homegoods Store is now listed as a new tenant (I think the old Circuit City spot), which makes me VERY happy.
It's a great fit for southwest Fort Worth.

Overton Park Plaza is probably trying to get their act together before the proposed mega shopping center at I-20 & Winscott gets off the ground.

Bennigans went bankrupt and went out of business. I wonder if someone bought the name. I noticed construction on the Circuit City a while ago, but so far nothing in the old TGIF.

Ah, here it is: Bennigan's closed their corporate-owned stores in the U.S. in July, 2008 as part of Chapter 7 bankruptcy. They were bought out in October 2008 and the new ownership is opening new franchises. You may remember there was a Bennigans around the corner on Hulen (is that were Five Guys, etc., are now?)

That's right, the old Bennigan's site is where Five Guys, Jersey Mike's and Pizza Inn are now. There's also a new Bennigan's in Lake Worth, and one at DFW Airport Terminal D.

I see from the latest site plan that Clothes Mentor women's wear store is taking the place of several empty spots next to Buy Buy Baby. The Star-Telegram had a big feature on them a few weeks ago:

Resale shops sprout up across DFW

By the looks of that site plan that leaves one more large retail spot left what is left to fill that void with the new shopping center in Benbrook rumored to open and with everything else that is already in the area?

Bennigan's has put their sign up on the side of the former TGI Friday's building and they have started renovating the vacant space! Also, In-N-Out has a frame up for the new restaurant going up in the former Larry's Shoes plot!

A couple of new tenants have leased space within the center.  Party City will be taking part of the old Circuit City space and La Madeleine has leased the old Mattress Giant space on the southeast corner.
