Located in a fast-growing north central Texas community, Southlake Town Square began in 1996 as a 135-acre, fifteen to the twenty-year master plan for the City’s new downtown. The master plan was designed to accommodate a total build-out of approximately 2.7 million square feet, including retail, restaurant, office, residential and civic uses.
Currently, there are 555,000 square feet of retail and restaurant uses, 26,000 square feet of office space, 250 hotel rooms, 3,200 theatre seats, and a completed 1st phase of single-family residential.
The plans to develop open pastures into an upscale downtown for the City of Southlake began in the 1990s. Shortly after plans were approved by the city council, Cooper & Stebbins began developing phase I of the Southlake Town Square master plan.
Phase I consisted of 250,000 sq ft (23,000 m2) of the Southlake Town Hall, City of Southlake Public Library, a signature square with extensive landscaping, Rustin Park with a gazebo and pond, four blocks of retail with office overhead, and the only Post Office in the area. In 2006, Cooper & Stebbins opened phase II of Southlake Town Square.
In 2015, Granite Properties got the green light to build a seven-story office building east of North Carroll Boulevard. In 2020, Macy’s chose Southlake Town Square to open its first Market by Macy’s.
