A new Kroger supermarket on the edge of Dallas' Arts District will offer more than groceries.
The supermarket chain plans for its new store to be part of a mixed-use development that includes hundreds of new apartments.
Kroger last year purchased a block of land on Hall Street between Ross Avenue and North Central Expressway. It's just across the highway from downtown and in an area that's seeing rapid redevelopment.
Early this year Kroger filed plans with the City of Dallas to build just a supermarket and surface parking on the site.
But now the grocery giant has teamed up with a local apartment builder and wants to include 375 apartments with the project.
The development designed by Dallas architect GFF would have four stories of rental units on top of a 2-level Kroger store, plans for the project show.
