The Shops at Lakeside will occupy the ground floor of six buildings along Lakeside Parkway at FM 2499 with lofts occupying the upper floors. From here at the corner of Lakeside Parkway and Northwood, the Lakeside Trail lies just 160 yards to the west.
The buildings at the intersection of FM 2499 and Lakeside reached their full height this month.
But the real sizzle at Lakeside, according to town planner Dan Quinto, lies around the corner from 2499’s 60,000-plus vehicles per day.
“The action will take place behind the front buildings, where the pedestrians will be protected from the traffic on 2499,” said Quinto, “on the sidewalks, in the pocket parks, at the outdoor restaurants, and on the Lakeside Trail.”
