Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake, which opened in 2004 as the city’s first hospital, held a groundbreaking ceremony for its expansion on September 9th.
The 5,300 square foot addition will be connected to the existing 46,300 square foot hospital, and will include six observation beds and the conversion of an underutilized procedure room into an inpatient bed. Construction is underway and anticipated completion is during the first quarter of 2016.
Citing the need to meet demand for healthcare services from Southlake and surrounding communities, hospital President Traci Bernard, RN, says the expansion will not only create much needed space, but create better efficiencies and an improved patient, physician and employee experience.
“This project is much needed due to the growing need for the highest quality of healthcare in our community, and has been thoughtfully designed to complement our existing facility. We are very excited that our hospital will be able to provide even more healthcare services for our patients,” stated Bernard.
The groundbreaking ceremony included comments from Bernard, along with Southlake Mayor Laura Hill; Dr. David Rothbart, chairman of the board for Texas Health Southlake; and Dr. Elizabeth Ransom, executive vice president and north zone clinical leader for Texas Health Resources.

Southlake economic development is off to a roaring start in 2015. With already established shopping centers, recently opened retail venues, and plans for continued development, Southlake is further establishing itself as a premier shopping destination in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
As indicated by the increase in sales tax revenue from $11,497,962 in 2013 to $13,342,819 in 2014, the economic climate in Southlake is getting stronger, noted City of Southlake’s Director of Economic Development and Tourism, Shannon Hamons. “Last year, approximately 76 new businesses opened in the city. Businesses continue to flock to our community, with several more high profile openings on the horizon.”
Southlake Town Square has been the primary community gathering place for nearly 16 years, consisting of approximately 850,000 square feet, more than 125 retail shops and restaurants, a 14-screen Harkins Theatre, an upscale Hilton Hotel, a U.S. Post Office, residential brownstones, and serves as a hub for local government inside Town Hall. Known for its high-end shopping, Southlake Town Square recently welcomed Boston Proper, Markham Jewelers, Columbia, Elaine Turner, Altar’d State, and Waxing the City. Additional store openings anticipated in the near future include E. Leigh’s, J. Jill, Spin Neapolitan Pizza, and the ever popular California-based specialty grocer, Trader Joe’s.
Diagonally across the street, consumers will find the new Park Village shopping complex at the corner of Southlake Boulevard and Carroll Avenue. Big name retailers have already opened for business, with other store openings throughout the spring and summer. Outdoor activities retailer and the nation’s largest consumer cooperative, REI, is already drawing crowds to Park Village. In addition to offering outdoor gear and apparel, the 34,000 square foot outfitter also houses a complete bike shop offering a full range of professional bike services. The Fresh Market is another prominent attraction of the 185,000-square-foot shopping center. The North Carolina-based gourmet grocer is known for its European-style market concept. The grocer consists of over 25,000 square feet, including a bakery, a full service meat counter, a wide selection of ready-to-serve entrées, fresh seafood, more than 200 imported and domestic cheeses, and a produce department with more than 400 items, including organic options. Additional tenants will open in the near future, including Michaels. North America’s largest arts and crafts retailer will open the new Southlake store in February, replacing a former Gateway Plaza location. The 23,200 square foot new store will feature an open design with wider aisles, warm colors and brighter lighting. Key departments will consist of home décor and floral, scrapbooking and paper crafts, jewelry, kids and tweens, art supplies, and framing.
Another new shopping center can be found blocks from Southlake Town Square at the corner of Carroll Avenue and SH-114. Carroll Pointe is a high profile establishment consisting of over 42,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, with three buildings similar in size and with a distinct architectural style. The layout was designed to provide generous patio spaces with landscaped planting beds, pedestrian-oriented lighting and enhanced concrete paving. The buildings were strategically designed to shade the patios, allowing for a more pleasant shopping and dining environment. The first tenant to open its doors at Carroll Pointe is the widely popular Tex-Mex restaurant chain, Chuy’s. The eclectic, Austin-based restaurant opened its Southlake location in January and has seen a steady stream of diners who enjoy the fresh, authentic and affordable cuisine.
Kimball Oaks is yet another development in progress. Situated at the corner of Southlake Boulevard and Kimball Avenue, the retail site includes eight buildings with floor space spanning 126,100 square feet, retail space equaling 102,100 square feet, and restaurant space totaling 24,000 square feet. PGA Tour Superstore recently opened its doors in the shopping center. The 45,000 square foot interactive store features certified golf pros, personalized golf lessons, six swing simulators for lessons and custom club fittings, five performance practice bays with swing analysis, a 2,000 square-foot putting green, and golf and tennis apparel and equipment.
“I believe you will see much of the development in Southlake shift in the coming years from new retailers to more office development, especially along SH-114. These buildings and the companies they attract will go a long way to help support our local businesses. Also, two new hotels have been approved for development and those could begin construction this year, which will add to our ability to attract even more tourists to the community,” stated Hamons.

Local residents and beer lovers who want to sip a cold one that was born right here in Northeast Tarrant County can now rejoice, and raise a glass, at Wildwood Grill in Southlake. The popular restaurant and lounge is hosting a launch party and tasting event December 4 at 5:00 p.m. for Grapevine Craft Brewery, which debuted its first craft beer November 27. There will be flight tastings, pints and Texas tall drafts available of Lakefire, a spicy rye pale ale, which is the first of four signature beers that Grapevine Craft Brewery will produce. Wildwood Grill is offering an expanded burger selection to accompany the distinctive brew.
“We are wild about great food and Texas beer at Wildwood, so this is the perfect combination,” says Dave Garner, co-owner of Wildwood Grill. “As an independent restaurant, we are very excited to support this local brewery and to be the first restaurant in the area to pour its craft beers.”
The only microbrewery located between Dallas and Fort Worth, Grapevine Craft Brewery is a welcome addition to the local dining scene and many wineries in Grapevine. Currently brewed in a production facility in Farmers Branch, construction is underway on an 8,100 square foot building in historic Grapevine that will house a tasting room, outdoor patio, and 30-barrel brewhouse. Grapevine Craft Brewery founder and CEO, Gary Humble, along with his two brew masters, will be on hand during the December 4 event to explain the brewing process and answer questions.
“We have been working on making Grapevine Craft Brewery a reality for more than a year. And as we launch our brewery, we are excited that one of the very first accounts to serve Lakefire Rye Pale Ale is Wildwood Grill,” states Humble.
