A plan to expand the popular Trinity Groves development at the west end of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is set to go before a city council committee Monday.
The plan would require a decades-old concrete plant, described as an “eyesore” in city documents, to be demolished and relocated to a nearby industrial park to make way for a $175 million mixed-used development.
City council committee members will hear about a plan — dubbed the "Argos Relocation Project" — to relocate the Argos Ready Mix South Central facility from the foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge at 240 Singleton Boulevard to the nearby Lone Star Industrial Park at 2900 West Commerce Street.
Construction of the new, larger facility would begin by the end of 2015 with an estimated project completion date of Dec. 31, 2016, according to the economic development committee’s briefing documents.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The committee will be asked to approve the plan and earmark $2.5 million in grant money to help facilitate the relocation.
The full city council will consider the grant agreement during its Oct. 28 meeting.
According to the committee’s briefing documents, redevelopment on the site of the concrete plant would "include a mixture of hotel, office and/or residential uses with a total estimated investment of $175M to $225M."
