Mehrdad Moayedi, the developer behind the mixed-use Collin Creek development in Plano, has designs on another former mall site. Centurion American is moving forward with its City Point development plan on the former 72-acre North Hills Mall site.
Centurion American’s plan for the development includes 60,000-square-feet of restaurant and retail space along City Point Drive and an upscale hotel on the corner of Boulevard 26 and Rodger Line Drive.
There will also be 364 homes and townhomes and about 400 multi-family residences built on the new development, which will include a trail system and a large amount of green space.
The North Hills Mall was a North Richland Hills fixture for more than 40 years before it closed in 2004.
In 2016, a portion of the vacant land became home to the new City Hall complex — after voters approved the decision in 2012 through a $48-million bond package.
AG Spanos Companies joined the redevelopment phase in early 2019, purchasing 10 acres next to City Hall for a multi-family community named 26 at City Point. The development with four apartment buildings and a clubhouse is currently under construction.
“We are excited to see redevelopment in this area of North Richland Hills moving forward and believe it will be a catalyst for additional redevelopment and revitalization in the area,” Mayor Oscar Trevino said in a news release.
The City Point development will be completed in phases and expected to take between five to seven years, according to the release.
Centurion American has developed master-planned communities such as the Riverwalk in Flower Mound and Entrada at Westlake. The Farmers Branch company also developed the Statler Hotel into residences in Downtown Dallas, is working on the Cabana Motor Hotel on Stemmons, and most recently announced plans to resurrect the Braniff building on Wycliff.
