Stores announced for Renaissance Square in southeast Fort Worth

FORT WORTH — Marshall’s and Ross Dress for Less will each open large stores in the Renaissance Square development in southeast Fort Worth, the shopping center developers said Friday.

Each apparel retailer will have 25,000-square-foot stores, according to the list of retailers who so far have leased space in the center, along U.S. 287, between Berry Street and Vaughn and Mitchell boulevards.

Last April, Walmart announced its plans to build a 180,000-square-foot supercenter in Renaissance Square. Walmart will have a grocery and pharmacy.

The list of retailers also includes Shoe Carnival, 12,000 square feet; Dots, a women’s apparel store, 4,500 square feet; rue 21, a trendy clothing and accessories store for young men and women, 5,500 square feet; Dollar Tree discount store, 9,000 square feet; GameStop, 1,600 square feet; and, T-Mobile, 2,400 square feet.

Fast food chains McDonalds and Jack in the Box will also have restaurants.

Robert Smith, president of Lockard Development, based in Cedar Falls, Iowa, said the retailers will launch the first phase of Renaissance Square. The stores should be completed in early 2013. The stores will be adjacent to Walmart on the westside of the center, closest to Mitchell Boulevard, according to a site plan.

"This community has waited so long to have a local destination for retail services and the day of its arrival is finally upon us," Smith said.

Lockard is a development partner in the project with Midland-based Moriah Real Estate Co.

Roads and other infrastructure work have been completed at the site. In 2009, the City Council approved up to $12 million in tax breaks for the 67-acre project, planned to have about 425,000 square feet of stores and restaurants.

The shopping center will be adjacent to Mason Heights, a residential area planned for 100 acres south of the site.
