Southeast Hurst Redevelopment Plan

The City of Hurst has recently retained Catalyst Commercial to help develop a revitalization vision and strategy for the city. The primary goal of this initiative is to evaluate the city's neighborhoods and business community with respect to opportunities and weaknesses. This will in turn help city council prioritize public initiatives and to catalyze redevelopment that will involve Hurst residents and the private sector as well.

The purpose of this planning effort is to understand the viability of the existing development, explore new uses and development strategies that will create an exciting new vision for specific catalytic locations within the city. This plan will result in a market driven land use and development strategy that will incorporate a mix of uses that takes advantage of Hurst's location in the Metroplex.

In order to create a realistic vision that is consistent with the specific needs of the property and business owners along the corridor, the City of Hurst held numerous stakeholder meetings. The goal of these meetings was to provide information on this initiative, review existing conditions within the city and to gather feedback from residential property and business owners.

Feel free to review the presentation that was used at the stakeholder meeting on January 25, 2017 that shows the programs goals, early findings and assessments, plus stakeholder comments.

Economic Development News

November 2016

iFly HurstThere are a lot of positives associated with a City experiencing a nationally renowned new business locating within their boundaries. This quarter there were 55 new store openings in Hurst but certainly one of the most outstanding was the opening of the new Ifly Indoor Skydiving. They opened the doors to their new $6M entertainment venue for sky diving thrill seekers of all ages last month. They have locations throughout the world and it is great to see their new Hurst location listed alongside touristy locations like Hollywood, Orlando, San Diego, Chicago, Montreal, Dubai and Singapore. Just as attractive is the actual location they chose, immediately across from North East Mall on N.E. Loop 820 Highway. This area now becomes a Family Entertainment District with Rebounderz Trampoline Arena, Battlefield Frontlines Combat Laser Tag and Putt Putt that is now experiencing an expansion and full remodel, all within 1/2 mile of one another.

The City of Hurst also recently conducted its Hurst Business Appreciation Dinner for all its businesses to recognize local businesses for their hard work as they prepare for the busy Holiday season. Three Hurst businesses received Outstanding Business Awards for the year at the event. Grain & Dairy Gourmet Grilled Cheese Restaurant won for Outstanding New Business. The new Shops at Hurst Shopping Center anchored by the new Walmart Neighborhood Market won for Outstanding Renovation/Remodel. Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant was chosen as the Outstanding Business of the Year.

Through the third quarter existing single family home sales remained brisk as 613 were sold y-t-d to new families moving to Hurst. They were sold quickly also as the average days on market was a mere 22 days and they experienced a 13% increase in average sales price compared to last year at $210,000 per home sold.
