Grand Scale: Warren Buffett’s Grandscape Project To Add Apartments, More Restaurants
By: Karen Robinson-Jacobs , The Dallas Morning News
Grandscape, Warren Buffett’s massive mixed-use development in The Colony, announced plans this week for its first residential component and a new slate of restaurants all clustered in a “lifestyle” section within the 400 acre-development.
The combination of new apartments, food and office space creates a mixed-use section within the broader development and should help boost foot traffic beyond those searching for sofas in the sprawling anchor, Nebraska Furniture Mart.
“What we’re really trying to do is create a destination with Grandscape as a whole, with entertainment, residential, retail,” said Michelle Evers, construction operations manager, who described the future people magnets while workers in hard hats and neon-hued vests trudged across mounds of dirt. “We’re doing a lot to create an experience when you come that’s more than just going to … a theater or a restaurant.”
