Century Square announced five new tenants at the Century Square development on July 27.
The Breakaway Ministries administration office, the Galleria Day Spa, Runway Seven, Sweet Paris Crêperie and Café, and King Ranch Saddle Shop will join the businesses at Century Square.
Breakaway Ministries will move their administration office into Century Square One office building. The weekly non-denominational bible study will continue to meet on the Texas A&M University campus Tuesday nights during the school year. “Ten thousand students will not be coming [to Century Square] each week,” jokes John Taylor, general manager of Century Square.
Local business Galleria Day Spa will also relocate to Century Square. Located across the street from 100 Park, a 21 and older living community, spa owners Susan Flippen and Ronda Wells plan to expand their boutique and add salon treatments to their services, according to the July 27 Century Square press release.
Runway Seven is a regional women’s clothing and accessories boutique. The new store will be between Piada Italian Street Food and Tiff’s Treats.
Sweet Paris Crêperie and Café will open on across from Hopdoddy next to The George hotel. The restaurant will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner options, according to Taylor.
King Ranch Saddle Shop signed on as a seasonal holiday pop-up location. More information on the leather goods shop has not been released.
Century Square opened in 2016 after more than ten years of planning between Midway and Texas A&M Univeristy. The 60-acre property is being leased to Midway and has two boutique hotels, two office buildings, and a large amount of retail space. Previously announced tenants include Zoe’s Kitchen, Merge, Star Cinema Grill, Mo’s Irish Pub, Orangetheory Fitness, Piada Italian Street Food, Tiff’s Treats, Berryhill Baja Grill and Cantina, Hey Sugar, Porters, Blaze Pizza, Sub Zero Ice Cream, and Hopdoddy Burger Bar. Hopdoddy will open on July 31.
Phillip Ray, vice chancellor of business affairs at the Texas A&M University Systems, attended the reveal on behalf of Chancellor John Sharp. Ray highlighted the impact of the new urban center so close to campus. “[Century Square] is the quality of development College Station deserves,” says Ray. The property will generate tax dollars for the city of College Station, he adds.
Century Square plans to have the stores and restaurants up and running by the first home football game on Sept. 9, says General Manager John Taylor. For more information about Century Square, visit www.century-square.com.
