Construction on the massive Water Street mixed-use development in Irving on Lake Carolyn is underway, with an official groundbreaking slated in mid-November after years of being delayed.
“Water Street is a multi-faceted project, as it is a transit-oriented, mixed-use waterfront development with public financing across the street from the prestigious Williams Square office towers,” Slade said. “These attributes provide a tremendous opportunity for Gables to add value to the community, and we are proud to bring this project to fruition.”
Slade declined to share the reasons behind the delay in construction, which was expected to get underway two years ago.
Water Street’s initial phase at includes more than 60,000 square feet of retail shops and restaurants, including waterfront dining for restaurants that include Olivella’s Pizzeria, Twisted Root Burger Bar, Main Street Bistro & Bakery, The Londoner Pub and Planet Sub.
The project will include a park for special events, such as a farmer’s market or festival and public pathways with access to Lake Carolyn.
Retail Street Advisors is leasing the development’s retail space.
WDG Architecture is the architect of record on the project. Studio Outside is the landscape architect. Kimley-Horn is the civil engineer. SLJ Interiors is the project’s interior designer.
The development’s initial phase is expected to be completed in mid-2017. The groundbreaking ceremony is slated for Nov. 11.
