Ridgmar Mall reveals new tenant

FORT WORTH, TexasGK Development Inc., the owner of the Ridgmar Mall in Fort Worth, has signed a lease with SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium, a unique aquarium experience packed with over 300 species and 1,500 animals from every corner of the globe.

With two locations already in Las Vegas and Utah, the newest SeaQuest site features a 27,000-square-foot space at Ridgmar Mall. The aquarium is housing exotic exhibits full of sea life, rainforest reptiles, tropical birds, vast desert species and much more.The location is now open.

“We have many ideas for Ridgmar Mall, and we are proceeding with a number of plans and considering many options,” said Garo Kholamian, president of GK Development. “SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium is family-friendly fun for all ages and will help create the ultimate experience for the mall’s customers. With each new tenant and concept, we hope to add exciting and diverse options to the property, making it a retail attraction for the region.”

Visitors will have the opportunity to get wet with stingrays, feed toucans, encounter caimans, marvel at the sharks, take selfies with the snakes and much more.

This marks the next step in the mixed-use redevelopment plans for the retail center. In October 2016, GK Development acquired the 120,000-square-foot building occupied by Neiman Marcus, and earlier this year, a phased multimillion-dollar renovation began of the property. Phase one included interior improvements to open up sight lines within the center and a $3-million remodel of Cinemark Theatres. Additionally, the first H&M store in Fort Worth opened last year at Ridgmar in a 20,693-square-foot space.

Future phases of the transformation to a mixed-use property are expected to include many new retail, entertainment and dining establishments with cutting-edge architectural design and diverse options to maximize the prime location in between the heart of Walsh Ranch and downtown Fort Worth.

The mall, located at the northeast corner of Interstate 30 and Green Oaks Road, currently features about 126 retail stores.
