Were excited to welcome our new tenants to the Castle Hills community, which is currently home to approximately 9,000 residents and is still growing, said Tim McNutt, Bright Realty executive vice president. These new tenants will offer new entertainment and restaurant options to the community, as well as conveniences.
The Castle Hills Village Shops include numerous retail, entertainment and office tenants such as restaurants, medical offices, convenience and liquor stores, a spa, karate and dance studios, nail and hair salons, and financial services. In addition to the retail, office and entertainment space, the area features a one-acre-plus outdoor Plaza featuring tree-shaded walkways, gardens, numerous water features, a permanent stage with movie screen, and outdoor shaded seating. The Plaza serves as a neighborhood gathering place and venue for developer-sponsored community events such as free movie nights, holiday festivals and live concerts. A new phase of the Village Shops offering more retail and restaurant space is under construction with an expected completion in spring 2013.
