The mixed-use facility just completed construction on its first phase, which includes office as well as retail space and aims to create a new hub of activity near the campus of Texas Christian University. It features new landscaping, gathering areas along the Trinity River and Trinity Trails, along with a rotating public art program.
Bartaco, which operates 13 restaurants in the Northeast and Southeast, chose WestBend as the first western outpost for its offering of quality beverages and hand-held foods in an environment with a “coastal vibe.” It will fill a 4,853-sq.-ft. space.
“Engaging with the active social scene on the Trinity Trails through trailside restaurants is a key piece of our vision for WestBend,” said Trademark CEO Terry Montesi.
A second WestBend phase is in the works for an adjacent 3.5-acre tract. Some 670,000 sq. ft. of retail, restaurant, office, residential, and hospitality space is envisioned at full build-out.
