The businessman recently closed on 34,000 square feet of land along Pat Booker Road in the city of Live Oak, on the far Northeast Side, where he will develop a new Golden Chick restaurant.  The Live Oak site marks the fifth Golden Chick deal for Tharp, according to Michael Garansuay, an associate in the retail division of United Commercial Realty San Antonio, and Tharp’s real estate broker.

It may have taken a bit, but a delayed retail project in the city of Helotes is certainly gaining traction now.  Tom Rohde, vice president of locally based Rohde Ottmers & Siegel Realty Services, has announced that construction will soon begin on the Helotes Town Centre.  That work will include turning dirt on a new Walmart Supercenter that will anchor the project. The store, which will measure 150,000 square feet, is expected to open in the fall of 2013.  The Town Centre will be located along Bandera and Leslie roads, in the city of Helotes, which borders Northwest San Antonio.

In addition to the Supercenter, another 27,000 square feet of shop space and restaurants is also planned for the project.  Tenants that have signed on to the project so far include Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, Great Clips and the Cash Store.
