A stalled Fort Worth mixed-use project is back on track, with the WestBend development along University Drive promising 84,000 square feet of additional retail space, including a newly signed anchor tenant, according to project developer Trademark Property Co.
About 57,500 square feet of Class A office space also will be added to the property, with construction planned to begin in early 2014. Grand opening is set for spring 2015.


The expansion will complete the 278,000-square-foot mixed-use project, according to Trademark officials. The site, just east of University Park Village and west of the Fort Worth Zoo, will include several restaurants along the Trinity Trail, with trailside patios, new public spaces and retailers.
Earlier this year, Trademark CEO Terry Montesi announced plans to restart the project. The 2008 recession put the project on the back burner the following year.


“We stopped so we could sustain it and keep owning it,” Montesi told a packed audience at an August business luncheon.
An on-site parking garage had been partly built when developers put the brakes on construction.
