If you’ve ever ventured out to North Texas’ Nebraska Furniture Mart in The Colony, you probably noticed that the mega-home furnishings store seemed overshadowed by its surroundings ― as if it was only the beginning of a much larger development. It was.
Located in The Colony, the $1.5 billion Grandscape will be one of the largest mixed-use real estate developments in the entire country upon completion ― chock full of unique stores, restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as a residential component ― Live Grandscape.
It’s being developed by Nebraska Furniture Mart’s owner — Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett’s company. Grandscape will ultimately stretch across more than 400 acres, and encompass more than 3.9 million square feet.
Grandscape is all about grandiose. Take for instance its most recent addition ― Scheel’s, which is touted as the world’s largest sporting goods store. It burst on the scene May 1, flaunting its cathedral ceilings, along with a 331,000 square feet of retail space. Scheel’s other attractions include a 65-foot tall, 16-car indoor Ferris Wheel, a 16,000-gallon saltwater aquarium with more than 600 fish on view, and a wildlife mountain. It brings a new definition to destination shopping.
