An 80-room Holiday Inn Express and a new locally-owned seafood restaurant are just a couple of the new developments slated to open in the Trails at 620 Shopping Center in the months ahead.
The Trails at 620 is a 60-acre project located near Grandview Hill at 8300 RM 620 N., across from Concordia University Texas.
RedFin Seafood Kitchen could be opening as soon as January in 3,500 square-feet of space in the Trails Phase Two. Steiner Ranch residents Mike McCollum and Bill Rasch are in the planning stages of launching the restaurant.
“We have always had the common goal to launch a restaurant in this area with fresh seafood in a casual atmosphere” McCollum said.
In addition to fresh seafood, the menu will feature appetizers, salads, steaks and a full bar with local craft beers. The eatery will incorporate rollup doors extending out to a patio area for outdoor dining.
McCollum and Rasch are excited about opening a new restaurant close to home.
“We both live in Steiner Ranch and the Trails at 620 is something we had our eye on for awhile,” McCollum said. “It has a good anchor with the movie theater and it’s close to home. We need more eateries out here and there’s no seafood around. It’s something we know and have fresh suppliers.”
The Trails at 620 Phase Two anchor is the 44,000 square-foot Wilson Parke Medical Building slated to have opened this weekend, according to the project’s developer Leslie Sloan.
Other new businesses planned for Phase Two include AT&T, A+ Federal Credit Union and others which aren’t yet ready to announce publicly, Sloan said.
A 12,000 square-foot retail building is also nearing completion with Phase Two, she said.
Additionally, construction is expected to start this month on the new Holiday Inn Express, Sloan said.
“We’re excited about being in the Trails at 620 development and its proximity for guests to walk to a restaurant or catch a movie,” said Riyaz Bhiawala, registered agent for Four Points Lodging Inc. “It’s a unique draw—that convenience.”
The 80-room, 45,000-square-foot hotel is planned to include a covered pool area and patio on the building’s back side with views of preserve land, Bhaiwala said. The exterior of the hotel will be stone and stucco, and the interior will likely house a meeting space, fitness center, business center and great room for a full breakfast.
