Park Village Fountain Goes Dry for Repairs

The privately-owned fountain at Park Village is currently turned off due to water leak and pipe corrosion issues. According to the Park Village property management, Shopcore, several steps must be taken before it is in working order again.

Those steps include filling the fountain with non-corrosive City water to help determine where the leak is coming from, repairing the corroded water lines, re-plastering the inside of the fountain and finally sealing the outside masonry.  Once the fountain is operational it will continue to be run on City water to avoid the corrosion from the previous well water.

The timeline for the overhaul is still being determined.  The City will be working with Shopcore management and the fountain’s new construction contractors to monitor the complete and timely repair.

While the fountain does not represent a safety issue, parents are urged to keep their children away from the fountain until renovations are complete.

First Look at Proposed Plans for Village at Carillon Parc

On June 28th, a meeting will take place which could make the undeveloped mixed-use component of Carillon come to life.

Next Wednesday, a development team will present their vision to the public for moving forward with a new commercial concept for Carillon, the Village at Carillon Parc, which includes a walkable retail, living and office experience integrated with parks and open spaces, and proposes a potential site for a new city library.

“The Carillon residential community is well-established on 285 acres between North White Chapel Boulevard and Carroll Avenue on State Highway 114,” said Development Manager John Terrell. “We want to complement the Villa and Estate homes with a visionary, vibrant and highly livable village experience, and we think the Village at Carillon Parc does just that.”

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. with an open house in the Marq Southlake’s Legends Hall Ballroom, where people can review the proposed plans and design concepts as well as ask questions. The development team will make a formal presentation at 6:00 p.m.

“Earlier this year, John and the The Village at Carillon Parc development team team met with the Southlake 2035 Corridor Committee and members of the City’s Community Enhancement and Development Corporation with an idea about the Carillon Plaza and Corporate districts,” said Southlake Mayor Laura Hill. “As you can imagine, there were a lot of questions and recommendations. The June 28th meeting is intended to be a follow-up conversation before they start the City’s development process.”

Southlake Welcomes Park Village: Grand Opening Celebration April 16 Features Gin Blossoms

A premier shopping and dining destination for nearly two decades, Southlake will soon officially welcome its newest retail attraction, Park Village.  The 186,000 square foot retail center, located at 1065 E. Southlake Boulevard, has been serving customers since last fall, but will celebrate its grand opening April 16, 5PM-8PM, with a free concert featuring the 1990s rock band, the Gin Blossoms.

Park Village SignThe outdoor shopping venue offers an assortment of shops and restaurants in a walkable setting. Owned by Excel Trust and managed by Lincoln Property Co., the center’s most unique feature is its eye-catching, illuminating, color changing fountain, a design inspired by the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Situated in a prime spot overlooking the intersection of Southlake Boulevard and Carroll Avenue, the fountain features coordinated lights and music and delights visitors with daily scheduled shows to several songs.

The complex, which is already 83 percent leased, is anchored on the north end by tenants The Fresh Market, popular outdoor outfitters REI and Orvis, RA Sushi, Malai Kitchen, and the soon-to-debut Gloria’s Latin Cuisine, one of several sibling restaurants to the famous Dallas original. Michael’s, the arts and crafts super store, fitness shoes retailer Luke’s Locker, Beauty Brands and Potbelly Sandwich Shop prominently line the south end of the center.

Other retailers to note include Modern Market, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Grayson Allen Fine Jewelers, The Juice Bar, Paper Source, Sur La Table, and the much talked about rustic pizzeria, Taverna Rossa, which will start serving hungry customers just in time for the center’s grand opening festivities.

To celebrate its grand opening, Park Village will host Sip, Shop and Rock on Saturday, April 16. In addition to a free outdoor concert, the event includes food and beverage tastings, cooking demonstrations, and store giveaways with the purchase of a VIP ticket benefiting the Miracle League of Southlake, a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for children with disabilities to play baseball.D4S_1403

The Miracle League of Southlake was launched fall 2015 and served 152 young athletes on 12 teams. The program caters to young athletes from ages four to 28, and provides opportunities for disabled young people have fun, be active, and play baseball, many for the very first time.

“The City of Southlake is a tremendous partner for the Miracle League, working with the league to build and help manage the Texas Rangers Miracle League Field within Southlake’s beautiful Bicentennial Park.  This partnership involved cost sharing and the City was generous in providing matching funds for all donations designated for capital costs. It is through this partnership and support from the Mayor and City Council that the Miracle League was designated as the beneficiary of proceeds from the VIP event,” states Craig Rothmeier, president of the Miracle League of Southlake, also noting that the event proceeds will go towards increased expenses from an ever-growing league of athletes.

Although Sip, Shop and Rock VIP tickets have sold out, the Miracle League of Southlake is still accepting donations. Sip, Shop and Rock hopefuls who did not purchase VIP tickets still have the chance to attend the free concert by the Gin Blossoms, known for hit songs Hey Jealousy, Found Out About You, Follow You Down and Till I Hear it From You. The band will perform from 7PM-8PM to cap off Park Village’s grand opening. Although admission to the concert is free, guests are required to register online to claim one of 2,000 available tickets.

Limited parking for the event will be available onsite at Park Village. Overflow parking with a complimentary shuttle will be available at Dragon Stadium in Southlake. For more information, visit www.ShopParkVillage.com.
