Hillwood has broken ground on Parkside at Alliance Town Center, a 3.5-acre food and entertainment destination integrated within a beautiful park-like setting. The development will launch with two new restaurants, Grub Burger Bar and Shell Shack, with other concepts to be announced soon.
Grub Burger Bar offers hamburgers served on fresh baked buns, sandwiches, salads with homemade dressings, handcrafted milkshakes, craft beers and signature cocktails. Shell Shack, a Dallas favorite, serves up boiled shellfish including three different types of crab, shrimp and crawfish in five different flavors. They also serve oysters, chicken wings, sandwiches and salads.
Alliance Town Center, the 900-acre mixed-use development within AllianceTexas, began construction on Parkside this month, with the first two restaurants expected to be completed in summer 2018.
“Parkside at Alliance Town Center will be unlike any other dining destination in North Fort Worth with unobstructed views of Bluestem Park, our signature green space, and a wide range of community programming,” said Mark Miller, vice president of Hillwood, in a news release. “We are combining unique restaurants, live music and recreational activities with the family programming that is already taking place at Bluestem Park to create a new, highly-desired food and beverage destination.”
Parkside at Alliance Town Center will include a live music stage, seating and recreational activities such as cornhole and bocce ball. In addition to offering food and beverage options, Parkside at Alliance Town Center will fill the growing demand for more nightlife opportunities in North Fort Worth by offering later hours and live music.
In order to blend with the native prairieland of Bluestem Park, the development’s architecture and landscaping aims to convey a rustic environment that will include large shade trees in community spaces and unobstructed views of the park.
Bluestem Park includes 14-acres that have been restored to its native blackland prairie state by Hillwood Properties. The park is home to dozens of native grasslands and plants, 500 native trees and shrubs and diverse wildlife.
