Aluminum and steel are coming out of the ground at Sylvan Thirty, the $47-million mixed-use development at Sylvan and Fort Worth Avenue. Cox Farms, the grocery anchor, is the first piece in the retail/residential development. That’s the piece pictured above. The entrance to the new Cox Farms store will face Sylvan, and the side of the store will face Fort Worth Avenue.

“We expect to hand the building over to Cox Farms in the next eight weeks or so,” says Sylvan Thirty spokesman Cooper Smith Koch.

The Duncanville-based grocer will finish out the space and is expected to open in December.

An underground parking garage for the planned four-story apartment complex also is under construction.

Developer Oaxaca Interests also has agreements with Matador Meat and Wine, Sync yoga studio, Pearl Cup coffee and a fish market to lease spaces at Sylvan Thirty.
