Hurst is a 10 square-mile city that has been fortunate over the years to become home to its many citizens and businesses. It’s 6400 acres have been developed to the level of now being 99% occupied . What the City continues its focus on is enhancing the existing property through redevelopment . One such example is the recently opened Provision at North Valentine luxury apartments . An older, unattractive shopping center with minimal occupancy was taken down and replaced with a new $20 million residential apartment complex . The demand for the new apartments was so great the developer had a pre-lease list with more than twice the number interested than the 94 units could provide for.

To continue the need to accommodate the considerable interest for more new residential dwellings in the city, another apartment complex of the same size has broken ground one mile south on Highway 10, Provision at Patriot Place . They hope to be ready for occupancy by year-end.

860 cities across the country lost their Toys R Us stores last year when the national toy company claimed bankruptcy. The City of Hurst was fortunate to gain commitment within a year from two national retailers that are now back filling and redeveloping that former Toys R Us space. These two popular retailers, Hobby Lobby and Tuesday Morning , will open soon featuring home décor, furniture, arts and crafts and more. They complement well the other retailers on West Pipeline and will serve as a regional draw for the area.

Further redevelopment is occurring along Grapevine Highway as the new owners of Sprouts Crossing Shopping Center are soon to complete their renovation and expansion of this grocery anchored retail property. The new owners bought an older shopping center immediately adjacent and took it down. This created the opportunity for them to build a new addition where the two became one new, updated shopping center with Sprouts Farmers Market and a roster of new and existing retailers.
