There has been an uptick in construction activity near the intersection of Highway 114 and Davis Boulevard which means exciting times are ahead. Over the course of 2023, residents can expect the mixed-use development known as Entrada to expand as more construction gets underway and long-awaited restaurants open.
In the last half of 2022, Michael Beaty with Mooreland Development purchased the Entrada project from Centurion American and took over as the developer. Since then, Beaty has worked with Town staff and the council to adjust the development’s layout and timeline and get things moving.
Throughout the Catalonia-inspired Entrada development flows a grand canal. On the north end of the development, a completed row of restaurant shells waits to be occupied. Later this year Dahlia, a southern European-inspired restaurant and cocktail bar, will occupy one of the spaces at 63 Tarragona Drive. A chapel and reception venue, the Chapel at Palacios, also sits along the canal at 49 Tarragona Drive and should be open soon. The Chapel at Palacios was purchased by an experienced wedding venue operator, Walters Wedding Estates.
Permits for the highly anticipated residential repository were issued in early fall of 2022. Construction activity for the five-story project is expected to get underway in the first quarter of 2023 and take about 2 years to finish. Once complete, the building is expected to house luxury car suites, traditional climate-controlled storage units, flexible office space, and a rooftop restaurant.
Beaty has purchased a 22-acre parcel of land adjacent to the current Entrada site along Solana Boulevard with plans to expand the development and add some additional residential space consisting of detached homes and a dog park.
To make Entrada easier to access, a connection from Highway 114 should be completed during the first quarter of the year. TxDOT has finished their portion of the work on this, leaving Mooreland Development to wrap up the remaining work. Once open, visitors to Entrada will have easy access to the parking garage and restaurant row.
