PLANO, TX – Rosewood Property Company, developer of Heritage Creekside, announced today that it has signed leases for two restaurants at its 156-acre mixed-use development near the intersection of US 75 (Central Expressway) and 190 (President George Bush Turnpike). Flying Fish and Rodeo Goat Ice House, both developed and operated by Shannon Wynne’s group, will open in late 2017.
“Not often do you come across a running creek in North Texas, but Rosewood presented us with an opportunity to have mature trees and a real creek in their new development and it just seemed like a burgers and fried catfish kind of place,” said Shannon Wynne.
The Flying Fish pays homage to the many East Texas fish joints available on area lakes, especially Caddo Lake. The restaurant will offer gobs of fresh catfish, shrimp and oysters, grilled fish, shrimp cocktail, fish cocktail, crab legs, burgers, chicken and mudbugs (crawfish) in season. A specialty selection of grilled salmon, trout or tilapia will be offered each day. Bar refreshments include ice cold beer on tap, bottled beer, wine and homemade margaritas.
Rodeo Goat Ice House is the place for burger and craft beer lovers. The 44 Farms beef is ground in house daily resulting in savory selections such as the Mike Rawlings and the Chaca Oaxaca. Rodeo Goat is a great family hang-out, and is wildly popular in Ft. Worth and Dallas Markets.
“The 46-acres comprising Phase I of Heritage Creekside is fully under development and the progress is demonstrable,” stated Bill Flaherty, president of Rosewood Property Company. “The restaurants represent an important amenity for the region, in particular for the residents and visitors to Heritage Creekside. We anticipate further announcements shortly. The creek restoration project has begun and the bow truss pedestrian/bike bridge is currently being manufactured and will be installed by mid-2017. It is gratifying to have great support on this transformational project from the important adjoining neighborhoods of Dallas North Estates and Pittman Creek Estates and the City of Plano, as well as our partners on Phase I.
When completed, Heritage Creekside will include up to 1,300 multi-family apartment units, several hundred single-family townhouses and homes, retail and a corporate office campus with up to 2.5 million square feet of office space. The property, which has been owned by the Hunt family for more than 50 years, has remained largely undeveloped.
Wynne and partners currently co-owns and operates restaurants in six states and 14 cities, including The Flying Saucers in Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri; The Flying Fish concept in Texas, Tennessee, and Arkansas; 8.0 Bar in Texas; and The Meddlesome Moth and LARK on the Park in Dallas; Rodeo Goat with locations in the Dallas Design District and Fort Worth; and Mudhen Meat and Greens next to the Dallas Farmers Market.
Rosewood Property Company is a subsidiary of The Rosewood Corp., a private investment concern owned by the Caroline Hunt Trust Estate. Its real estate holdings are in some of the most active submarkets in North Texas. The company owns and is headquartered in Rosewood Court, an office/retail complex in Dallas’ Uptown.
“Our development plans at Heritage Creekside have been assisted by some talented consultants, including; Gateway Planning Group, Stantec, GFF and Horsley Witten Group,” Flaherty noted.
