Grapevine Mills plans multimillion dollar renovation

Grapevine Mills is set to launch a multimillion dollar renovation that will transform the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in North Texas. The project, to be completed in 2015, will create a more inviting shopping environment for shoppers, according to the mall officials. “We’re looking forward to further developing and refining the shopping experience through this significant investment that will better showcase Grapevine Mills’ outstanding retail selections paired with popular dining and entertainment options,” said Gregg Goodman, president of Grapevine Mills. “This transformational effort will also benefit the city of Grapevine as we are sure to entice residents and visitors from afar to spend more time and money at Grapevine Mills.”

The renovation will include neighborhood-by-neighborhood visual and structural improvements. Included will be mall entrance architectural facelifts, a reimagining of retail facades, sleek new flooring, contemporary energy efficient lighting and new soft seating groupings designed to maximize comfort, according to mall officials. Architect for the project is OmniPlan of Dallas, also designers of the Cityline project in Richardson. Grapevine Mills will conduct the renovation in four phases over the next year. The majority of the work will be performed while the center is closed to avoid disruption to shoppers. The shopping center recently added a first-in-market location for Vera Bradley Outlet and Torrid. A Steve Madden store will open in the fall. The property also recently added tax-free shopping to its amenities offered for international guests.
