Sylvan Thirty goes vertical, Cox Farms to open in December


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.

    Oaxaca announced that Matador Meat and Wine, Sync Yoga Studio, Pearl Cup Coffee and a fish market are going in along with other stores. The other stores going in are very popular and secret stores so their names can’t be announced until they’re open. Also the underground parking for the apartments won’t have to be built under ground but rather is going to be on the first floor. The apartment building is going to be 5 stories tall including the parking floor to give renters unobstructed signature views of the skyline from North Oak Cliff.
