Green Acres Nursery has come up with plans for the 10-acre it recently purchased in Collin County, which will soon be sprouting a $14 million retail center.
The new Green Acres Nursery & Supply in the town of Melissa will cover 99,000 square feet, according to state filings. Construction is expected to start next spring.
The project is located at 1818 Fannin Road, where a single-family home previously stood. The new development will comprise a 25,300-square-foot retail building, a 5,000-square-foot warehouse and 68,400 square feet of greenhouse structures.
The new build is one of the first additions to the 10-acre tract that the California-based company acquired in June. Located in the rapidly expanding town of Melissa, approximately an hour’s drive north of Dallas, it is set to become Green Acre’s second Texas location, following the recent opening of a store in Irving. The company also has acquired sites in Southlake and Frisco.
Collin County’s retail landscape has been relatively strong lately, with suburbs such as Celina, Plano, McKinney and Melissa to continue the trend with development activity over the next decade, according to Weitzman Group, an Austin-based brokerage. The gains are driven by population growth in the area, which has prompted major retailers to add stores in Collins County.
Notable recent additions include new H-E-B locations in McKinney and Alliance, a Target store in Prosper, an additional H-E-B store in Frisco, a Kroger Marketplace in Plano, and Costco stores in Prosper and Celina. Additionally, the closure of Bed Bath & Beyond and Tuesday Morning locations across the region is expected to open up over 500,000 square feet of retail space.
