SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium confirmed for Ridgmar Mall

🕐 1 min read

SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium has leased space in Ridgmar Mall, becoming the latest tenant in the west Fort Worth shopping destination.

With two locations in Las Vegas and Utah, the newest SeaQuest site will feature a 27,000-square-foot space, 300 species and 1,500 animals.

The location is expected to open in late 2017, according to mall owner GK Development Inc.

“We have many ideas for Ridgmar Mall, and we are proceeding with a number of plans and considering many options,” said Garo Kholamian, president of GK Development, commenting in a news release.

Visitors will have the opportunity to get wet with stingrays, feed toucans, encounter caimans, marvel at the sharks, take selfies with the snakes and much more.

This lease marks the next step in mixed-use redevelopment plans for the mall. In October 2016, GK Development acquired the 120,000-square-foot building occupied by Neiman Marcus, and earlier this year, a phased multimillion-dollar renovation began of the property.

The first phase included interior improvements intended to open up sight lines within the center and a $3-million remodel of Cinemark Theatres. Meanwhile, the city’s first H&M store opened last year at Ridgmar in a 20,693-square-foot space.

Future phases of the mall’s transformation into a mixed-use property are expected to include many new retail, entertainment and dining establishments.

The mall, located at the northeast corner of Interstate 30 and Green Oaks Road, currently features about 126 retail stores. More information is available at www.Ridgmar.com.
