CityLine adds Fernado’s
CityLine announced Nov. 10 Fernando’s Mexican Cuisine has opened at the 186-acre mixed-use project in Richardson.
Fernando’s offers upscale Tex-Mex dining with the continental influence of Mexico City. This will be the third Fernando’s location in the Dallas area, with the other two locations in Preston Hollow and Knox/Henderson’s Travis Walk.
“We are thrilled to welcome one of my all-time favorite restaurants to CityLine – Fernando’s Mexican Cuisine,” said KDC CEO Steve Van Amburgh. “I have been a guest at Fernando and Anne Padilla’s other locations for years and know this family-owned establishment is sure to be a hit with the guests at CityLine thanks to its fabulous menu and fun atmosphere.”
The lunch and dinner menu includes fajitas, brisket tacos and shrimp enchiladas. The menu also offers regional dishes like Mexican street tacos, sizzling pollo asado, and grilled red snapper with tequila lime sauce. Fernando’s flaming tres leches cake, sopapillas, and homemade pralines provide a delicious end to one’s meal. Weekend brunch serves classics such as huevos rancheros, breakfast tacos, and chilaquiles, along with brunch beverages. The restaurant features well-priced weekday lunch specials and a festive happy hour, with quick to-go orders and catering services also available.
“For nearly twelve years, it has been my goal to provide exceptional food and service to a most gracious and loyal clientele,” said Fernando’s founder and namesake Fernando Padilla. “It is indeed a privilege and an honor to now have the opportunity to bring this concept to the neighborhoods of Richardson and Plano.”
The 5,115-square-foot Fernando’s is located at 1250 State Street, next to Edoko Sushi & Robata.
Venture Commercial Real Estate’s Investment Sales team has completed the sale of a single-tenant net-leased LA Fitness that anchors Frisco Market Center, a 100-acre mixed use development located on the northwest corner of Main Street and the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco.
This LA Fitness location opened this past summer. The company will maintain its lease on the 38,000 square-foot facility with five acres of land. LA Fitness is the largest corporately operated sports club chain in North America and continues to open new clubs across the U.S. and Canada.
John Zikos, Jonathan Cooper, Christopher M. Gibbons and Don Miller with Venture’s Investment Sales team represented the owner, Hermansen Land Development Inc. in the sale.
Zikos and Cooper have represented LA Fitness in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio markets for 12 years, handling more than 50 leases and transactions on their behalf, including the build-to-suit lease at Frisco Market Center signed in 2014.
“Our intimate knowledge of their best-in-class operations gives us a unique ability to find buyers willing to pay a premium for properties where LA Fitness is a tenant,” said Zikos. “In fact, LA Fitness leases continue to trade at the lowest cap rates in the health and fitness category for STNL properties.”
The buyer, a private investor, was represented by Larry E. Golman with Golman & Associates, along with Mike Friedman of CBRE.
