Grandscape, the development in The Colony that currently houses Nebraska Furniture Mart, Rock and Brews, Hard Eight BBQ among others, broke ground today on a 100-plus acre lifestyle center.
Previously announced anchors including Scheels All Sports and Galaxy Theatres will be joined by two new restaurants Thirsty Lion Gastropub and Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar.
Thirsty Lion will open its second location in Texas in the Grandscape development in the fall of 2018. Portland, Oregon-based Thirsty Lion offers gastropub fare and from-scratch cooking with a culinary commitment to local and seasonal ingredients, according to a Grandscape news release. It’s other Texas location is set to open later this year at Irving’s Music Factory development.
“There are so many attractive features about having a restaurant location at Grandscape,” said John Plew, CEO and president of Thirsty Lion. “The center is dynamic, has great traffic driving features, is easily accessible and is a one-of-a-kind development.”
Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar, a family owned company, which originated in Spokane Washington incorporates fresh produce from local farms and offers local brews and wines.
Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar is set to open in 2019.
“These wonderful restaurateurs announced today demonstrate our commitment to bringing unique retail, entertainment and food venues to Grandscape,” said Jeff Lind, Grandscape president. “We are creating the best retail and entertainment destination in the country.”
Grandscape will eventually include a total of 433 acres, with 3.9 million square feet of retail, residential, entertainment, hospitality and dining venues. Grandscape and Nebraska Furniture Mart are owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
