DALLAS –– Dallas-based Merriman Anderson/Architects (maa) has been selected as design development and architect of record for the massive Grandscape development that spans more than 400-acres and will include 3.9 million square feet of retail, hospitality, attractions, dining entertainment and residential.

The developer for the project is Nebraska Furniture Mart, as part of the Berkshire Hathaway family.

 Grandscape is currently anchored by Nebraska Furniture Mart and is situated south of Sam Rayburn Tollway (SH121) between W. Spring Creek Parkway and Plano Parkway in The Colony.

 HTH Architects of Los Angeles is the design architect and VCC Construction is the general contractor for the mixed-use project.

Plans for the development include destination retail like Scheels, slated to open in 2020, numerous restaurants, a hotel and spa, luxury movie theater operator Galaxy theatres, residential and office spaces and entertainment concepts, such as Andretti Indoor Karting and Games, set to open in 2019.

The project is scheduled to open in phases over the next several years, with the first phase scheduled for fourth quarter 2018.     

“Located in the area’s largest growth corridor, Grandscape is a game changing development for the Dallas/Fort Worth area,” said Jerry Merriman, president and founder of maa.

 “Our team is delighted to be part of this exciting new destination that will impact the entire region for many years to come.
