Dallas Morning News reports the Developers of the Preston Hollow Village will add an office spaces to the mixed-use development. The 42 acre land at the northwest corner of Central Expressway and Walnut Hill Lane will include grocer Trader Joe’s, which is expected to open early next year. This will make the second for the Dallas area, after the Lower Greenville store is expected to open this summer.
The development will also include retail shopping, apartments and town homes. Provident Realty Group of Dallas is projected to break ground for in June.
I just grabbed lunch at Inwood Village’s Cantina Laredo — for the last time. The Mexican food favorite is being forced out of its space this Sunday, according to general manager Irene Rebolloso.
Rebolloso said she is devastated, and was only just able to break news to her staff on Wednesday. Rebolloso made a point to walk around to every table during lunch to thank customers for their loyalty and business. Countless patrons got up out of their chairs to give the bubbly manager a hug.
Brandon Harris, the leasing agent for Inwood Village, declined to comment. Check back for updates.

By now, most Park Cities/Preston Hollow residents are probably aware of the imminent closure of Baskin-Robbins at The Plaza at Preston Center. We’ve received a couple of tips from concerned community members who want to know why their beloved ice cream shop will be closing at the end of the month.
Rumors have been circulating that a Sprinkles Ice Cream is opening up in the Plaza, forcing the family-owned business, a community favorite for 40 years, out of the center.
In Friday’s issue of the paper, we get to the bottom of the story and set most of the rumors straight.
Sadly, it’s not likely that this location will be open next year, so you’re running out of time to get your beloved Daquiri or Jamocha Almond Fudge ice creams. Hurry in before the 29th (slated to be their last day of business) to get your favorites and give the family your well-wishes.
Pick up Friday’s issue of either Park Cities People or Preston Hollow People to get the full story.

When I drove by the corner of Northwest Highway and Hillcrest yesterday, I barely recognized the stores that line the intersection. Turns out, Bella Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa has disappeared and in the past few weeks, Hillcrest Nails Spa and Massage Felax have popped up in its place. These two neighboring salons market themselves differently; Message Felax focuses only on massages, while Hillcrest Nails Spa offers manicures, pedicures, and massages.
Not far down the block lies Soleo Mexican Kitchen. This five-week-old restaurant features both traditional Tex-Mex dishes and more modern takes on the classics.
If you have tried any of these new places, please let me know what you think!
My inbox has been flooded lately with news of restaurant openings:
Spoon Bar and Kitchen, the latest concept from colorful chef John Tesar, will open Nov. 2 in Preston Center.
Smashburger will open its fifth Dallas-area location in “late November” in Mockingbird Station.
Dave and Buster’s will open Dec. 2 on the former site of the AMC Glen Lakes, just south of Spec’s on the northbound Central Expressway frontage road.
Wicked Po’ Boys, a restaurant in Richardson, has signed a lease to open a second location in Preston Center, with a projected opening date of January 2013.
