DALLAS - Austin-based ecofriendly home improvement store Treehouse is opening its second store at the northeast corner of N. Central Expy. and Walnut Hill Ln.

Treehouse, a store that sells ecofriendly construction materials and products, is spawning a wholesale redevelopment of the prime corner.

A new 25,000-sf Treehouse will also have more than 5,000 to 10,000 sf of outdoor space to display native landscaping, rainwater collection and other projects the store will sell.

The store is expected to open in early 2017.

The complex has about 270,000 sf of retail and between the buildings hidden from view now are large open interior concrete spaces that Minnis plans to turn green. 

Think of a giant spread of concrete coming to life with a beer garden, green spaces and lots of trees, said Todd Minnis, principal of Capref Walnut Hill.

The 20-acre project is both a redevelopment of existing buildings and new construction.

New smaller buildings and green space for an outdoor expansion are planned by the existing Red Hot and Blue Barbecue, Minnis said.

In addition to serving as display places for Treehouse materials, the buildings, inspired by the tiny house movement, will be spaces for actual businesses such as a coffee house. ​
