Epic Central Hotel and Restaurant Development
Work is beginning on Epic Central’s additional commercial expansion, August 2020. In order to accommodate future retail and maximize the development opportunities on the site, Esplanade Road will no longer go through from the Public Safety Building to the Summit.
On August 3, traffic circulation around Epic Central will change, with the closure of Park Central and Esplanade. The Park Central entry point will move further south and reopen in the spring of 2021. The current TXDOT deceleration turn lane associated with Park Central will be removed with a new turn lane to be created at the new Park Central location.
The city is working with several commercial partners. When contracts are finalized, details will be shared.
