(Dallas, TX) December 26, 2021 – The Market and Main development in Bedford is strictly commercial again, with plans for shops, restaurants, offices and a hotel.
The project, which now includes Trader Joe’s and the Friendly Toast as well as a Carrabba’s Italian Grill that pre-dates the development, has been stalled for the past year since the $120 million plan to include up to 200 apartments was rejected by town planners in September 2020.
Last month, the planning board signed off on a scaled-back design for the long-awaited project at the site of a former Macy’s off South River Road. The previously proposed 1,200-seat Regal Cinema and a five-level parking garage are no longer part of the plan.
Most tenants have waited for the project to be approved before signing leases, according to Mike Nelson, president of commercial for developer Encore Enterprises of Plano, Texas.
