Metrocrest Hospital Authority Partners with Local Organizations to Create Awareness of Affordable Health Care Services Available in the Community

Metrocrest Hospital Authority (MHA) has partnered with PediPlace, Woven Health Clinic and the Carrollton Fire Rescue to disseminate flyers providing information on low-cost health care services available in Carrollton and surrounding areas. The flyers are being distributed by the Carrollton Fire Department to residents without a medical home for routine primary healthcare.

“Many of the calls for emergency medical care can be avoided if the patient has routine medical care from a primary care physician or pediatrician,” said Krista Weinstein, chief operating officer for Metrocrest Hospital Authority. “Our goal is to educate the community on the affordable services available to them through organizations like PediPlace and Woven Health Clinics.”

“The fliers allow our paramedics to provide critical health care information in written form in both English and Spanish to residents,” said Caleb Rosier, City of Carrollton Fire Rescue.  “These partners help us better serve the community’s health care needs.”

The flyers began circulating in July with information about services provided by PediPlace and Woven Health Clinics. PediPlace offers quality, safe, equitable, compassionate, family-centered primary care to children ages new-born to 18 looking for accessible and exceptional health providers.  Woven Health Clinics, located in both Farmers Branch and Carrollton, provides free and low-cost health care services to adults who live in Dallas, Carrollton, Coppell, Addison, and Farmers Branch to those who cannot afford it. The community clinics cover both the uninsured and under-insured, as well as some free healthcare services.

“Our mission is to make healthcare a reality for every kid,” said Larry Robins, president & ceo of PediPlace. “Too often we find that families assume they cannot access quality care if they are uninsured or use Medicaid or CHIP benefits. But they can! We are reaching parents who would otherwise go without care or resort to the ER or costly urgent care facilities. We want families to know they have a medical home with us – a place they can turn to for primary care and answers to their most pressing medical questions.”

“Our clinics are designed to focus on wellness and disease prevention – all of which is accessible and affordable,” said Lisa Rigby, executive director of Woven Health Clinic. “Our patients are our priority. Everyone who comes through our doors is treated with compassion and respect.”

Both PediPlace and Woven Health Clinic offer bilingual services. For more information about Metrocrest Hospital Authority, visit www.mhatx.org.

Bright Realty Breaks Ground on Crown Centre II

The expansion is positive step in the further development of the Castle Hills Community

Bright Realty held their groundbreaking on April 20 for Crown Centre II. The project is part of Bright Realty’s long-term plan to invest in the City of Lewisville and continue to elevate the region’s economic development efforts. The $50M investment brings a four-story, 147,000-square-foot Class A Value office building with construction taking place right off Sam Rayburn Tollway.

“This expansion is a positive step in furthering the development of the Castle Hills Community,” said Britton Lankford, Senior Vice President for Bright Realty. “This is one of many recent investments aimed at growing the company’s premium portfolio and transforming the company’s offerings to meet market demand in Denton County.”

Crown Centre II is primarily funded by Bank7, an Oklahoma banking corporation and Sterling Private Capital, LLC. As the second office building in the development, Crown Centre II will neighbor Crown Centre I, which was delivered in 2020 and is currently 89% leased.  Upon completion, the Crown Centre development will include up to 2,000 multi-family units, 3 million square feet of office space and up to five hundred hotel rooms. It will also have three open spaces with lakes and trails that connect its thirty-five buildings, outdoor event space and 140,000 square feet of other non-residential commercial uses including retail and open green space.

“We are beyond fortunate to have the Bright Family’s team of sophisticated developers as clients and are humbled they selected Rudick as their trusted build partner for this significant investment in the City of Lewisville, Denton County and greater DFW region” shares Clay Rudick, CEO of Rudick Construction Group. “We understand the substantial impact this project will have for the people who live, work, and play here. It is a responsibility everyone on my team takes very seriously. We will be good neighbors to everyone in the surrounding areas throughout the construction process.”

The land encompassing Crown Centre is the last remaining undeveloped land in the Castle Hills community. Castle Hills has grown to include more than 4,500 single family homes, six multi-family communities with more than 2,000 apartments and townhomes, condominium developments, a rental home community as well as hundreds of thousands of square feet in office, retail, and entertainment space.

Three retailers opening at The Realm at Castle Hills

Lewisville destination sees continued growth  

 

April 4, 2023 (Lewisville, Tx) -- The Realm at Castle Hills, a 324-acre mixed-use development along SH 121 in Lewisville, continues to grow with the opening of three new retailers. The Realm, upon completion, will consist of over 5,000 multifamily units; 1.5 million square feet of retail, office and restaurants; a boutique hotel; an extensive trail system; and an outdoor entertainment district. The Realm will be a $1.5 billion development at completion and is a Bright Realty development.

“According to a recent SmartAsset study, Denton County ranks 10th best for business growth,” said Bright Realty CEO Parker Bright. “The population is projected to continue to increase. We’re offering the community a lifestyle destination with luxury amenities and a variety of unique retailers.” 

New retail tenants now open at The Realm at Castle Hills:

Cheeky Monkeys – A 7,287-square-foot edutainment-based play and birthday party center that caters to kids ages 10 months to eight years. Cheeky Monkeys offers more than 6,000 square feet of play space, seating for 100 adults, a coffee shop and a limited-service restaurant. 

206 Luster Grill – A 2,257-square-foot restaurant serving Seattle-style teriyaki-inspired dishes and sushi. The name comes from the term “teriyaki,” which is actually two words merged – “teri” refers to a sauce that has a glossy sheen and “yaki” means grill. Hence, Luster Grill, and 206 refers to the area code for the owner’s hometown of Seattle, which is famous for its teriyaki.

Cachet Salons & Spa – A 10,692-square-foot salon that offers luxurious lease space for salon professionals and a wide range of salon and spa services. Cachet takes a unique approach to the traditional “salon suites” business model and truly creates experiential real estate that industry professionals can’t find elsewhere.

“We continue to see the focus to develop in Denton County,” said Bright Realty Executive Vice President Lucas Patterson. “Our goal is to offer a variety of residential products, outstanding entertainment options, and flexible office opportunities. With continued growth, the SH 121 corridor truly embodies the live/work/play concept that caters to the region’s demographic.” 

“We couldn’t imagine a better spot for our second location than The Realm at Castle Hills, an ideal location in the heart of one of DFW’s fastest growing areas,” said Matt Muse, owner of Cachet Salons & Spa. “We are very grateful to be a part of The Realm and we are confident that our studios inside of it will be the best in their class.”

These new retailers join current Realm tenants El Patio Mex-Tex, which offers a blend of authentic Mexican cuisine and true Texas barbecue; the Food Network-featured The London BakerWorth the Pour, a high-end spirits retailer that offers tastings and unique products; Mochinut, a combination of an American doughnut and Japanese mochi; Bahama Bucks, neighborhood favorite known for its more than 100 flavors of shaved ice, smoothies and lemonades; Salubrious Juice & More, offering organic juices and juice cleanses, acai bowls, smoothies, paninis and avocado toast; and coming soon Food Morning and Grimaldi’s.  The Realm also features Crescent Park, which has shaded seating, a cooling water feature and green space. Crescent Park is the ideal location for developer-sponsored events such as the upcoming Cinco de Mayo Block Party, The Realm Renaissance in the fall and Rockin’ Around The Realm in December.  

The Realm at Castle Hills features Offices at the Realm, a nine-story office building with first-floor restaurants; Cottages at The Realm, an all-rental community with 72 single-family homes; Sojourn at The Realm, 80 condos over first-floor retail; and Valor at The Realm, Discovery at The Realm and Olivian at The Realm, luxury multifamily communities that include apartments and townhomes for rent and convenient first-floor retail. 

In addition to The Realm, the Castle Hills community also offers the Castle Hills Village Shops as a popular neighborhood destination with retail, restaurants and everyday conveniences. Recently, the community added to its lineup of community events an outdoor market. Castle Hills’ take on the classic farmers market will feature handmade and homemade goods along with fresh produce every month. The market debuted April 1 in the Village Plaza and will be held on the first Saturday of each month from 9 am-1 pm. The next outdoor market is scheduled for May 6. Its ramen restaurant, Ramen Izakaya Akira, was called "a thing of beauty” and "spectacular" by Strictly Dumpling (4 million+ YouTube subscribers). It was also named one of the top ramen restaurants in DFW and “totally worth the drive” by The Dallas Morning News. The proprietors of Ramen Izakaya Akira will bring a second concept to the Village Shops, Moonglow, a Japanese Fusion concept, opening in spring 2023. The Village Shops also offers multifamily residential and office opportunities, as well as outdoor seating and community event space.
