You can bet that Buc-ee’s looked long and hard for their first North Texas location. Terrell Market Center, an 89-acre tract at the junction of FM 148 and I-20, developed by Oakridge Investments, proved to be the high-performance address they picked to build their super-sized 62,000 square foot Travel Plaza. Buc-ee’s gets over 6,000 vehicle trips daily to its Terrell store. This major anchor of the 37-acre mixed-use development consisting of restaurants, retail and hotels, has already been joined by Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, Whataburger, Dairy Queen, Discount Tire and Starbucks.
Baylor Scott & White Health owns the remaining 52 acres which is designed to be a regional medical concentration that will feature a new full-service, 100-bed expandable to 400-bed hospital. Baylor Medical Terrell will be the largest regional medical facility serving Kaufman County and the East Texas region west of Tyler.
Crossroads at Terrell is a 255-acre, 600,000 square foot major power retail center at the junction of I-20, SH 34 and Spur 557 off U.S. 80. Crossroads at Terrell will be developed in phases and includes mixed-use office, retail, hotel, service and apartments. A new Taco Bueno and Panda Express are scheduled to open.
These exciting developments are located in our 4,500-acre TIF District which is the single largest rural TIF in Texas. They are easily accessible from all directions by a double diamond interchange. Traffic counts are over 47,000 VPD† and the expanded trade area has a population of 298,293*. With expansions and upgrades to frontage roads and off-ramps, this interchange will be able to handle millions of square feet of development and corresponding traffic volume.”
