City Point Project Overview

New homes and businesses will soon be built on the vacant land along City Point Drive around North Richland Hills City Hall. Centurion American Development Group has purchased the remaining 52 acres of the former North Hills Mall property. Located out of Farmers Branch, Centurion is a developer of master planned communities including The Riverwalk in Flower Mound, Entrada in Westlake, Mercer Crossing in Farmers Branch and Founders Parc in Euless.

The new City Point development will have a mix of uses including 70,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space along City Point Drive and a hotel on the corner of Boulevard 26 and Rodger Line Drive. There will be 364 homes and townhomes and around 400 multi-family residences. Construction will be done in phases and is expected to take 5 to 7 years to reach build out.

“We are excited to see redevelopment in this area of North Richland Hills moving forward and believe it will be a catalyst for additional redevelopment and revitalization in the area,” said Mayor Oscar Trevino.

Centurion is currently talking to various builders about the residential portion of the project and with numerous restaurants to anchor the commercial space. Below is a rendering from Centurion of what the new development could look like. A conceptual site plan shows how the development will be laid out. 

More information about Centurion American Development Group is shared on the NRH Economic Development website at Additional details about the residential and commercial plans for the development will also be shared there as they become available.

Property & Project History

Originally part of a 2,100-acre farm owned by Marsh and Catherine Calloway, 79.2 acres at the corner of Boulevard 26 and Rodger Line Drive developed into North Hills Mall in the late 1970s. The mall thrived as a regional shopping center for several decades with Stripling & Cox (later Foley’s), Sanger Harris and Mervyn’s as department store anchors. With competition and changes in shopping patterns however, customers and tenants eventually moved elsewhere and the mall closed its doors in 2004. In 2007, the building was demolished to make way for redevelopment. The property owner, LaVerne Butterfield Llc out of California, marketed the land for sale and redevelopment.

The 5.6 acres closest to Medical City North Hills (formerly North Hills Hospital) was sold for a medical office building, which opened in 2007.

In 2011, the NRH City Council formed a citizen task force to evaluate city facility needs, including impacts of the Loop 820 expansion project on City Hall and other city facilities. Following eight months of study, the task force recommended the construction of a new municipal complex and identified the former North Hills Mall property as the preferred location, believing that it could help spur redevelopment.  In 2012, NRH voters approved the plan with 68% of the vote. The city purchased 12 acres of the former mall property for the new City Hall. The street “Road to the Mall” was renamed “City Point Drive,” and the former North Hills Mall property was renamed City Point. The new North Richland Hills City Hall opened in 2016.

In conjunction with the City Hall project, the City Council approved a planned development zoning district (“PD”) for the City Point area to encourage and guide redevelopment of the former North Hills Mall site. The zoning established development sub-districts for commercial, residential, and civic uses.

In early 2019, AG Spanos Companies purchased 10 acres next to City Hall for development of a multi-family community named “26 at City Point.” Construction is currently underway on this project which includes 4 apartment buildings and a club house. More information about this project can be found here.

In early 2019, Centurion American Development Group informed the city that they were interested in redeveloping the remaining 52 acres of the mall property. They first presented their vision for the property to the City Council at a March 20, 2019 Work Session.

Three members of City Council - Rita Wright Oujesky, Tito Rodriguez and Scott Turnage - were appointed to a City Point Development Advisory Committee to work with the developer and city staff to refine plans for the property.

A zoning change for the property was approved at the August 12, 2019 City Council Meeting. A preliminary plat for the first phase of the project was approved at the December 9, 2019 City Council Meeting.

City Participation

The construction of new streets, sidewalks, water lines, sewer lines, drainage and other public improvements for the City Point Development will be supported through a Tax Increment Financing District (TIF) and a Public Improvement District (PID) that have been created in the City Point area.

The TIF funding will come from 25% of the growth in property tax revenues generated by the new construction in the City Point district. The TIF funding is capped at an amount not to exceed $4.2 million from the city and $1.7 million from Tarrant County over a 20-year period. Property owners in the City Point development will be assessed an annual fee through the PID to fund the remaining costs. City Council discussions and actions related to the TIF and PID took place during the following meetings:
