​​​GRAND PRAIRIE - A former movie theater complex is being redeveloped into a multitenant shopping center.

The UA Theater Grand Prairie 10 at Westchester and Carrier Pkwy. closed in December 2015.

United Development Co. of Southlake acquired the building last year.

"We bought a portfolio of 11 theaters in March of 2015," said Biff McGuire, United Development CEO. "We originally planned to put a supermarket in that building and we hope to sign up a grocer."

Along with the 40,000-sf cinema which will be remodeled, United Development is building 20,000 sf of additional retail space. 

Starbucks, an R Taco, and Panera Bread will be tenants in the new space.

"This growing area of Grand Prairie reports a population of 225,000 plus residents within a five-mile radius," McGuire said.

The first retail tenants will open later in 2016.​
