Almost 500 new apartments, Doggie’s Wonderland and an expanded Huffines Kia Subaru are in the works in Corinth.
Three major projects, all along Interstate 35E, will bring new homes and shopping to the area. Here’s the breakdown of what’s going where.
Located at 6651 S. Interstate 35E, Millennium Place will combine retail space, high-end apartments and eventually have a Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott at the property.
Angel Liu, project coordinator for developer Pinnacle Facility Engineering Inc., said the first part of the project will open next month: one of the apartment buildings with 112 units. The second building should open in January, with about 130 units.
As for the retail components of the project, Doggie’s Wonderland will open a location at the development, Liu said. The business will feature dog day care, boarding and grooming. The company should get permits to begin building out the space soon, and construction will take about 10 months, she said.
Ground will be broken next month on the hotel as well, she said. It’s set to open in 2020 and will feature a 1,700-square-foot convention center.
Huffines Kia Subaru
Longtime Corinth business Huffines Kia Subaru is getting a new dealership along Interstate 35E between Corinth Parkway and Post Oak Drive.
Dealership employee Gary Davis said the new location will more than double the dealership’s footprint.
The building will be 52,000 square feet and will sit on 14 acres. Currently, the company has 25,000 square feet.
“We’re going to become a lot more customer-friendly,” he said. “There will be more bays, more services and a lot more inventory and it will be a much better experience.”
There will be dedicated Kia and Subaru service centers, nicer waiting areas and lounges, and more space and employees to do service work. The new dealership is set to open by next February, Davis said.
Oxford at Lake View
Set to be one of the most posh apartment complexes in the area, the Oxford at Lake View is adjacent to Albertson’s at 3300 S. Garrison Road.
The first phase of the project is open, with leasing specials for the 72 units in the first building, said Tony Swartz, developer of the project and owner of Oxford Enterprises.
“We have a resort-style pool, state-of-the-art gym, offices and board room, elevators and a beautiful club house,” he said. “Inside the units it’s granite, beautiful stainless steel appliances and everything is top of the line.”
The project includes 8,000 square feet of retail space because of zoning requirements, Swartz said.
However, the company doesn’t have any tenants lined up for the space yet.
