Fort Worth’s Waterside will include start-up restaurant incubators
<p class=”Body”>Have dreams of owning your own restaurant but need some help? Trademark Property Company’s new Waterside, a 63-acre mixed-use development currently under construction at Bryant Irvin Road and Arborlawn Drive in Fort Worth, will include a number of incubator restaurants.
Trademark will lease three – four 600-1,000 square-foot micro-restaurant spaces exclusively planned for the property to local and regional businesses. To provide local entrepreneurs with the opportunity to lease space they might not otherwise be able to invest in, Trademark will offer smaller spaces, lower startup costs, shorter term leases, free outdoor seating and generous tenant improvement packages, as well as other benefits
The micro-restaurants will be located around The Grove, Waterside’s central public space. Designed around several heritage trees, The Grove will feature shaded outdoor seating for several restaurants, public art incorporating the site’s history and the re-use of existing playground and amusement ride equipment, a community pavilion, a community promotion shed, and activity areas for all ages.
Waterside broke ground on its first phase of development in 2014 and announced its first anchor tenant: a 45,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market, the first in Fort Worth. Most recently, REI was signed as the second anchor, also a first in Fort Worth. The project also includes Taco Diner, Zoes Kitchen, and Blaze Pizza,
