I haven’t even mentioned the opposite side of the menudinner entrees that showcase the playful Mexican cooking Stinson has concocted in the two years since he unveiled his Gato Nights weekend series. I’m talking about an adobo chicken quarter that Stinson flattens, tenderizes in a sous vide machine, finishes on a Japanese charcoal yakitori grill, and serves with red rice, house-made tortillas, escabeche, salsa macha and key lime halves. And a giant tlayuda, made with red corn meal that he grinds himself and crisps on a cast-iron press he imported from California. The pizza-size tortilla is strewn with mushrooms, summer squash, Oaxacan rope cheese, bean puree, avocado, salsa and the herb pipicha.

An order of takeout tacos from Gato in Candler Park includes (on the left) pulled citrus pork shoulder, with smoked peach salsa, cilantro stem, iced red onion, and chapulines salt; and (on the right) braised turkey thigh with green mole and radish.

Developer Hines plans new Lewisville business park

Houston-based developer Hines is ramping up its industrial building operations with a project planned in Lewisville.

Hines – which has been best known in North Texas for its high-profile office and apartment developments – in the last two years has worked to expand its industrial footprint in the area.

The commercial real estate firm has just filed plans for a four-building industrial park at 810 Round Grove Road near State Highway 121.

The Bison Grove Business Park project would contain almost 900,000 square feet of space and is valued at more than $32.5 million, according to filings with the state.

Construction is set to start early next year. Architecture firm Ware Malcomb designed the project.

The Denton County industrial complex is just the latest warehouse and distribution deal by Hines in the D-FW area.

Hines just leased a more than 1 million-square-foot building located south in southern Dallas to digital retail giant Amazon.

The Southlink Logistics Center is on Cleveland Road south of Interstate 20.

Hines built the project off Bonnie View Road as part of a planned larger industrial park.

In 2018, Hines has purchased an industrial park near DFW International Airport. The DFW East Logistics Center is a three-building property near State Highway 161.

More than 23 million square feet of industrial building space is currently under construction in North Texas, one of the largest such totals in the country.
