editor’s note


outhlake Town Square opened exactly 20 years ago, in March 1999, changing life in this city. In honor, we decided to look at the center’s history and its present — and near future. See writer Anna Caplan’s report, “Southlake Town Square at 20,” beginning on Page 14. Style editor Cidonie Richards looks ahead to spring/summer and warmer weather in this month’s shopping spree. Browsing exclusively at Southlake Town Square for this edition of her fashion feature, she found all the clothes and accessories you’ll need to outfit the whole family for a beach or lake getaway; see “Here Comes the Sun,” Page 40. It’s almost time for Art in the Square, the city’s biggest spring celebration. We’re always impressed by the quality of the art for sale here; it’s ON THE COVER Southlake Town a great place to shop for Square opened 20 years ago. Story begins on Page 14. unique pieces for your Photo by Ron Jenkins home. To get you excited for the prospect, we profiled one of this year’s featured artists and learned about her fascinating process.

Elsewhere, we profile courageous young man Charlie Williams, a Carroll clay-target shooter who’s staring down a health challenge, in “Pulling for Charlie,” Page 34. And we celebrate nature in a look at some stops on the Perennial Garden Society’s tour coming up in May (“Glorious Gardens,” Page 56) and in Kathryn Hopper’s elegiac essay on Southlake’s remaining undeveloped landscapes (“Call of the Wild,” Page 50). Get out there! Happy Spring,

After a few fits and starts, they took on new partners and opened Lush in a small shop in Poole that is still in business.

Here, oats in early February, its are displayed next to the Oatifix face mask. fourth in North Texas Photos by Ralph Lauer (NorthPark, Galleria and The Shops at Willow Bend are the other locations). Bins, baskets and shelves — made of reclaimed wood from Lush’s woodshop in Vancouver, Canada — are full of colorful bath bombs, scrubs, shampoo bars, soaps and more. The store is quite a sensory experience. But don’t worry: A well-trained staff is there to help, and signage is everywhere. Know that all products are handmade, 100 percent vegetarian and from ethically sourced ingredients, with no animal testing. Select products are vegan, preservative free and package free. Want to sample something? Ask an employee, who’ll lead you to one of several sinks in the shop. Testers and samples are available at most displays, too. Need a gift?

Herencia NOW OPEN | SOUTHLAKE Its name means “heritage,” and this new restaurant in the Shops of Southlake (in the former Mi Chula’s space) relies on a conceptual bit of heritage for its “Texican” cuisine. The concept is based on a short story, one about a mother who journeys from Latin America to Texas, keeping note of what she eats along the way, then comes up with dishes inspired by all the regions she traveled through. So along with the enchiladas, tacos and chile rellenos, there are such offbeat twists as a grilled meatloaf with beef, pork and roasted jalapeño accompanied by sofrito sauce; mariscada, a brandy-andshrimp caldo with blue-crab claws, whitefish and andouille sausage; and mesquite-grilled quail with an apricot-chamoy glaze. Separate vegetarian and “gluten-avoidance” menus — the restaurant Top, Herencia’s decor has “Texican” touches cantreduce the amount of gluten in select dishes (the “H” suggests a cattle brand) — much — are available.

The fictional traveler began cooking at her Hill Country ranch, supposedly handing her recipes down to Herencia’s founders. The restaurant’s design is inspired by that story, with its woodand-stone interior, patio landscaped with desert plants and a brandlike “H” logo overlooking the bar area. The bar has a strong tequila and mezcal list, as well as a bourbon menu reflecting Texas’ growing status as a bourbon state. 1431 E. Southlake Blvd., Suite 551, 817-873-8800, — Robert Philpot

The Apple Store was key. So was Brio and the nearby plaza on Grand Avenue. Here’s how a new kind of shopping development grew into our city’s beating heart.

14 March-April 2019




t started with a simple dream: To swap out 130 acres of farmland for a small town in this nexus of highways in northeast Tarrant County.

Twenty years later, it’s where Apple, Trader Joe’s, Shake Shack and other big-name brands reside — along with residents who occupy the nearby multistory homes in the 1.2-million-square-foot mixed-use development. When Southlake Town Square opened in March 1999, it was less than a quarter of the size it is now, at around 250,000 square feet, and it featured just a handful of retailers, as well as a city hall complex. “[The late developer Brian Stebbins] wanted to build a town from scratch,” said Jason Kasal, vice president/ senior leasing director with Retail Properties of America Inc. (RPAI), the owner and leasing manager for Southlake


By Anna Caplan Photos by Ron Jenkins

Town Square. “He saw the city hall component, the retail component … and wanted to make it a full ‘downtown.’ ” Stebbins and his business partners, Peter Cooper and Frank Bliss, were the driving forces behind Southlake Town Square, envisioning a vibrant lifestyle center where homeowners, retail tenants, and city and private workers could coexist. Stebbins had had success with shopping developments in Australia, New Zealand and Houston before he set his sights on Southlake. Once architect David M. Schwarz (Sundance Square

The decision to place Town Hall and the Southlake LIbrary in the center of the development boosted its role as the true town center.

Plaza, American Airlines Center in Dallas, Parker Square in Flower Mound) signed on, the project crystallized. Attractive brick buildings with big windows, wide sidewalks with streetlights and tree-lined avenues were created, helping lure many of the first retailers to the scene. The Gap, The Container Store, Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma were among the first to sign leases. In addition, a cadre of locally owned businesses like Animal Crackers and Magic Moon made the move to the development, New retailers such as Lululemon and Peloton help Southlake Town Square maintain its broad appeal. Kasal recalls. But Stebbins and Cooper knew retail wasn’t the leasing the space, which Kabal says still has room to be built out. RPAI only key to success, and the developers persuaded the city of Southlake also runs several neighboring developments to Southlake Town Square. to relocate its town hall to a prime spot on Main Street. This shopping “Within every parking lot and buildings, [there is that capacity to add center’s streets have familiar, friendly names, too. on],” he says. By 2006, RPAI took the reins, buying the attractive portfolio from While the development has undergone eight or nine expansions, Cooper & Stebbins. The Illinois-based company is now responsible for according to Kabal, it was the addition of Grand Avenue in 2006, and

one store in particular, that was the real turning point. “Apple was a game changer,” he says. It was the tech behemoth’s entree into Tarrant County — the University Park Village location in Fort Worth wouldn’t open until 2008 — and it drew customers to Southlake Town Square in a way only Apple could. (The store recently received a massive makeover.) Brio, the popular Italian restaurant, holds a prime spot near one of the town square’s mini parks along Grand Avenue, as do Anthropologie, Sephora, J.Crew and Lululemon. Another plus: The street was not only an economic gateway; it also served as a connector to State Highway 114, effectively granting the center an entrance from the north and the south. In 2008, mentioned Southlake Town Square as one reason the city earned the ranking of most affluent neighborhood in the country. But over the past 20 years, retail has whipped through innumerable trends, perhaps none bigger than the influx of online brands into a bricksand-mortar world. In response, Southlake Town Square has made way for nontraditional brands, such as Tesla and Peloton, which carries only minimal inventory. At least one larger-format store, the 4,000-square-foot-plus Eddie Bauer, is moving to a new location so its former space can be divided into smaller units, catering to the new kids on the block. But the mix remains a wide-ranging one, with Brooks Brothers coexisting with Buckle. And who might the new kids be? Think no further than eyewear upstart Warby Parker or Bonobos, a menswear brand, and you’ve got the picture. Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, the bath and body emporium, opened in January. Women’s retailer Johnny Was, known for its luxe boho looks, and men’s casual lifestyle brand TravisMathew are scheduled to open soon. Home goods and whimsical art can be found at Sugarboo & Co., also in the works. While Kasal can’t yet reveal who’s signing next at the center, he’ll say that in the next quarter, four more brands will be announced for Southlake Town Square. All of which means it’s an exciting time for what is now the elder statesman of northeast Tarrant mixed-use properties. “It feels like just now we hit our sweet spot,” Kasal says. “But the best is yet to come.”

18 March-April 2019



The Apple Store, above, and a Tesla showroom, left, are on opposite sides of Grand Avenue, a street that opened in 2006, connecting the center with State Highway 114 and helping draw in even more customers.

By the numbers

While retail and restaurants make up the majority of tenants, Southlake Town Square also features a bookstore, Barnes & Noble, still a proven draw; a movie house, Harkins Theatres; a Hilton hotel; and a dance studio (Dance With Me). The restaurants range from casual (Corner Bakery) to big ticket (Truluck’s). Parking is plentiful, with garages strategically placed along with numerous pull-in spots on the streets.

commentators talked it up as an example of the New

Urbanism, the philosophy that embraces walkable, mixed-

housing, workplaces and retail.

The Brownstones at Town Square launched the center’s residential component in 2006. Eventually, there will be 100 homes between the townhouses and the forthcoming condominiums.

The retail component grew

and grew, but the center is a notable success on another

level, too: It really does function as effective public space.

Residents have embraced it as surely as any organically grown, quaint small town

(developer Brian Stebbins told some that it was copied from

his favorite square in Savannah, Georgia).

People really do use the

lawns and plazas of the town center as hangout spaces

in their everyday lives. Go

on a Friday night when the

couples strolling, bands of teens gathering at the Starbucks and inside the Barnes & Noble.

Square’s three phases of housing (admittedly, the residences are high-dollar and not many retail workers are likely homeowners here). In 2006, the Brownstones welcomed their first residents in neat rows of townhouses stretching east from Central Avenue around a grassy, sharply sloped park — the park may be small, but walking your dog here is a workout. One early resident was painter Deanna Kienast, who lives in a 3,100-square-foot townhome and loves being in the middle of it all. She told 76092 in 2012, when we wrote about her first batch of renovations (including extensive custom metalwork inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright) that she and her husband like to wave to passersby on the sidewalk outside on Main Street. “It’s like having a window seat at a restaurant day in and day out!” In 2014, ground was broken on a new phase of townhouses in the Garden District around the lovely Brian R. Stebbins Memorial Park, named after the developer, who died in 2012, and filled with architectural elements, native plantings and benches that give it warmth. These houses have vintage-look exteriors that aren’t hugely different in feel from the original retro-style Brownstones, but inside, their kitchens meet more contemporary tastes, and the interior courtyards with plunge pools pay more attention to indoor-outdoor living. We’re about to enter a new era with the center’s (and Southlake’s) first flat condos. No one could have missed the Parkview Residences condo block under construction along Central Avenue behind the former Cafe Express. Most are sold, except for two of the six penthouses and a handful of two- and three-bedroom units on lower floors. The super-luxe condos boast private terraces, high ceilings, Wolf/SubZero appliances and premium quartz-slab countertops, smart-home features and optional car chargers. Common amenities include a rooftop terrace, a club room and an owners’ lounge. But the best amenity of all is right outside the front door: a village full of shops, restaurants, green spaces, movie screenings and ready-made friends.

efore Southlake was Southlake, Bill and Phyllis Lafavers called the community home. They opened Feedstore BBQ in 2001 and began a family tradition that has made the renowned restaurant a bucket list destination for barbecue fans who know the-best-there-is when they taste it.

“My mom and dad set the standards and quality we have today,” says son Mike. “Everything about us is because of what they did.” Feedstore BBQ has it all, from tender pork ribs to succulent brisket, turkey, sausage and jalapeno links. Burnt ends are featured favorites on Mondays and Saturdays. If you’re in the mood for sizzling fried catfish, they’ve got it. Bigbowl salads, too, with choices of Plain Ol’ Salad, Smokehouse Pulled Chicken and more. It’s near impossible to choose between the flavorful banana pudding and the hot cobbler of the day.

When he moved to Southlake with his family in 2017, he got involved in lifeguarding and Young Life. And then he went to an organizational meeting for the high school’s clay target shooting team and immediately was hooked. “Charlie has a mind made for physics and calculus. Shooting clays made sense to him,” says Judy, Charlie’s mom. She also credits the patience and work ethic of the team’s coach, Kevin Ball, for making the program both fun and a success.

In trap shooting, the targets are launched by machine away from the shooter; shooters are members of a five-person squad.

Call of the Wild Savoring Southlake’s unmanicured spaces


By Kathryn Hopper

ometimes I like to wave to the cows I pass each day while taking my son to school. Someday, the pastureland where they graze could suddenly be turned into another subdivision or shopping center. When that happens, I will miss them. I know that many folks consider these changes progress, but something in me relates to those last vestiges of  Southlake’s rural past and those remaining bits of native habitat.

The Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve is a prime example and is one of my favorite places in town. The city of Southlake recently assumed the management and operation of the 750-acre facility, and the city’s website promises to continue popular programs like the summer camp and preschool program that introduced kids to native flora and fauna. I am so thankful to the dedicated volunteers and donors who recognize and support the nature center and understand the need to preserve our untamed spaces. Going to the preserve is my perfect antidote to a stressful day, a place where my troubles seem to melt away with every call of a northern cardinal or bobwhite quail. I get that it’s tempting to tidy things up, kind of like Marie Kondo-ing the landscape. Overgrown vines and shrubby trees may not spark joy for all, but they provide precious habitat for many forms of wildlife that add to our ecosystem’s diversity.

50 March-April 2019

Just recently, the city cleared the brush and undergrowth in and around a treed area across from our elementary school. The city-owned space had once been a possible location for the library but in recent years had grown a bit untamed. Hawks were spotted atop the taller trees, and neighborhood kids built makeshift forts amid the briars and brambles. On the Southlake Parents Facebook page, some residents lamented the cleanup effort, with one saying, “Our kids loved playing in the forest. We loved the wild.” This winter, I have not been able to get out and enjoy the open spaces of the nature center as much as I would have liked. But I do feel that a bit of the wild has come to me anyway. During an early morning walk, I spied a silver fox ambling down our subdivision’s sidewalk. Neighbors said it was likely part of a fox family whose members had been captured on security cameras dashing past welcome mats on front porches. We’ve also had bobcat sightings down

by the creek and coyotes wandering around the golf course. All that plus a red-tailed hawk that has taken up residence along with a group of owls, which I recently learned is called a parliament, has me and other owners of small pets keeping our little ones close. I considered hiking with my miniature dachshund, but only if he could fit in our old baby sling. The wild can be a dangerous place, and some people would rather be rid of these pesky varmints than risk a run-in, even though wildlife experts say these creatures are more afraid of us than we are of them. But I hope Southlake will always be a little bit wild. I also hope those who own acres of pasture and forested land won’t sell out anytime soon. We are lucky to have our remaining remnants of wild places and open spaces here and need to treasure and protect them. I’ll still wave to the cows tomorrow, just in case. I think they have gotten used to it. Kathryn Hopper is a Southlake mother of four.

sizes and colors. Erika repeats this task over and over until the bowls are full. She wipes dust off her hands and surveys the scene. “People always ask me how long it takes to create one of my pieces. I tell them it takes two months. This is why,” she says. “The prep work is critical.” Her business is named Art Rocks Studio, inspired by her use of river rock from Colorado along with the slate and occasional gemstones. She also sleuths out driftwood for special projects. “In Colorado, no one wants to go hiking with me because they know I’ll make them carry wood and rocks.” In February, she traveled to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, one of the largest in the world, to find a few treasures to take home. Erika has been busy this winter getting ready for Southlake’s Art in the Square, which is April 26-28. A featured artist for this 20th year of the festival, Erika was first selected for the juried exhibition in 2002. Her mother, Arlene Voelker, who lives in Plano and also is an artist, has been part of the show five times. While Erika always sells well in Colorado, where she lives part of the year, she has cultivated an appreciative audience in North Texas. Most days find her in the Flower Mound studio in the back of her home on the northern edge of Grapevine Lake. Filled with raw materials and works in progress, the Bushee’s work is inspired by nature. In Skipping stone, acrylic, oil, silver leaf shop has been made cozy with a television and a solitary rock are coated in epoxy resin. and a dog bed for Wubby.

at the ready outside the back door. In the driveway, Erika’s trusty Sprinter van is full of wrapped pieces ready for delivery. “My first project involved fitting a broken pool table into my little car so I could use the slate. The weight of the thing broke the axles.” Today, she uses slate floor tile sourced from various retailers. “I use slate from India, as it’s easier to work. It has more iron, which makes it flakier.” Using a chisel, she breaks down each tile into thin layers, which are used to create the feather shapes. Bigger pieces of tiles are cut and chiseled to give the edges a more free-form and natural look. Then there are the piles of river rock, scattered in and around the studio. She splits the smooth stones, making them easier to attach to the base board. “When I first started, my work was much more geometric and angular. I used glue, but now I use resin, and it has become part of the artwork, too. The stones look like they’re sitting in water.” Before she begins setting a single piece, she sketches the design on paper. The resin gives her about 12 hours of working time before it sets. Most of the large works are done in panels, making them easier to transport and hang. The multidimensional artwork is tactile; it invites the viewer to move in closer to see the marbled colors in the layers of slate, the hints of glitter Frankie baby is an example of one that fill in nooks and crevices, the of her more geometric works. curved paths of stones she has created to look like rivers. “Sometimes I like to add a little color using a gemstone such as labradorite. For custom work, clients have asked me to use rocks that are special to them.” Erika was inspired early on by her mother. “As a girl, I went to a private school where French nuns were the teachers. It had a great art program.” While her mother works in oils, predominantly making paintings of birds, Erika always has loved the mixed medium. “It’s hard work, especially on the hands. When I need to relax, I paint.” Her husband built a large easel that sits on a flat clearing on the hilly lot. “Sometimes it’s nice to finish something quickly,” she says with a smile. “When it comes to the rock art, I’m a perfectionist.”

garden tour


oth children and gardens need tending. Grapevine physician Pat Stanton tends to both simultaneously. He teaches horticulture as a volunteer at The Novus Academy and invites students to help in his lush, expansive home garden. Their handiwork will be on display for all to view May 5 with Peek Behind the Garden Gate, the 2019 edition of the Perennial Garden Society’s biennial tour. Stanton’s English-inspired garden — highlighted by a koi pond, raised beds and picturesque bridges — will be one of seven on the tour. There will be lots to see and love at the other homes, too: three styles of fairy gardens, plus greenhouses, fabulous pools, sunny yards and shady patches, hardscapes and more. The garden club’s selection committee works year-round to zero in on the participants, and competition is keen. This year’s gardens were chosen for their variety and uniqueness. Native and drought-tolerant plants will be showcased, along with the club’s beloved perennials. “Perennials are important because they provide consistency without replanting,” says Susan Schleppegrell, garden society president. The society promotes perennials suitable to North Texas that attract butterflies and other all-important pollinators. In Stanton’s Thursday-afternoon garden class at the academy, the curriculum covers everything from bees to cuttings. “We learn all kinds of things out of my yard,” he says. “It’s the high point of my week. The kids love the garden class because we talk about everything from the history of gardening to using mathematics in laying out a row.” A close-up peek at Dana McGrath’s Southlake garden As the president of Photos courtesy of Perennial Garden Society Novus Academy’s board, Stanton has invited third- through fifth-graders to make gardeningeducation presentations to tour guests. “We provide education at every house,” says Schleppegrell. “You know, I’ve been doing it for nine years, I think,” Stanton says with a chuckle. “They lead me to believe they all still love gardening, and that tickles me to death.”— Joy Donovan

Dog day afternoon Sunny afternoons at Southlake Town Square have a lovely rhythm to them. Walk the dog. Sip a latte. Read a book. Our photographer caught dog sitter Morgan Emmert as she enjoyed the beautiful waning light on a springlike winter’s day. Rio, a 1 ½-year-old golden doodle, helped himself to a chair, too. He looks like he’s on top of things, including social life in our town center. And this intersection and this corner (you know the one) is the place to be. Photo by Ron Jenkins
