1.74 acres
Firebirds, a scratch kitchen restaurant serving fire-grilled specialty dishes, opened a new location in Alliance Town Center, Hillwood’s 900-acre master-planned shopping, dining, and entertainment district in north Fort Worth. Our team performed the planning, permitting (through both the City of Fort Worth and Alliance Design Review Board), engineering site design, and landscape architecture for the project. In addition, we previously designed the surrounding public infrastructure serving the site including Walker Way and Amador Drive, storm drainage, and utilities.
The 1.74-acre tract is situated along the northbound frontage road of IH-35W and required a TxDOT permit for the addition of a deceleration lane to allow right turns onto adjacent Walker Way (including signage and pavement marking plans). Close attention to existing underground utilities including gas, water, electric, and communications lines was required.
Our landscape architects designed the grading of perimeter berms along both the IH-35W Frontage Road and Walker Way to screen the project from adjacent roadways. Retaining walls up to four feet tall along the east and west edges of the parking lot were incorporated to accommodate the grade differential across the site. Landscape planting plans were developed for the perimeter of the site, including additional plantings along the IH-35W frontage to enhance the transition to a future pad site for P.F. Chang’s restaurant to the south (also a Peloton Land Solutions, a Westwood company project). Native/adaptive plantings that are drought tolerant with low water needs were utilized including Live and Shumard Oak, Vitex, Crape Myrtle, and Texas Sage.
