Current redevelopment plans at Winrock Town Center include consolidating the department store’s two existing sites — a men’s/kids/home store and a women’s store — into a single, new stand-alone building.
The proposed 240,000-square-foot Dillard’s would go north of the present men’s store and west of the women’s location, though a spokesman for the project said that plan is still preliminary.
Darin Sand of Goodman Realty Group, the company behind the Winrock redevelopment, said the move hinges “on a number of things,” including other leases and various approvals.
Dillard’s has yet to sign off on the change, he said, but “we’re working on it.” A message with the store’s manager wasn’t returned.
Sand said he didn’t know exactly how much space Dillard’s currently has at Winrock but estimated it was about 280,000 square feet.
In other Winrock news, Sand said crews last week completed the pad site for the long-awaited Dave & Buster’s. Sand said construction on the 25,000-square-foot restaurant could begin in the next month. The plan is to have it open by early fall.
Winrock’s new Joe’s Crab Shack, meanwhile, initially was expected to open this summer in a space just south of BJ’s, but Sand said it won’t likely be that soon. Progress on that restaurant project is “moving slower than we anticipated,” he said this week.
