such as the Chocolate Covered Strawberries created to celebrate Valentine’s Day, are also made using all-natural fruit. The brewery’s latest concoction, Bangowit, is a German-style beer made with blood orange and mango, Carter said. “All things being equal, give me the all-natural,” Carter said. “It’s like having scratch food. You could have Stouer’s lasagna, … but then, you go to a restaurant that does it completely from scratch, and it’s like, ‘Wow.’” Using an all-natural process and all-natural ingredients presents a logistics challenge. It also costs more to produce. But Carter said he believes those elements provide the best foundation for a quality brew. The brewery distributes from Amarillo to San Antonio and has a core stable of beers, including the Irish Red and Tejas Light. It also debuts seasonal beers or limited releases around various holidays, such as St. Patrick’s Day, Carter said. “Trying to come up with new, intriguing and fun- to-drink avor proles is not easy,” he said. “You can have an all-natural product, but if it doesn’t taste good, people won’t dig it. The whole industry has gotten innovative, and we are no exception.”

For Carter, that commitment lies in creating an all-natural product using original processes that he said have proven successful for thousands of years. “All beer was brewed by re,” Carter said. “It was the original way to do it, and I wanted to bring the most natural product I could bring to market. We could get the taste using articial ingredients, but we use all-natural, and that’s the right way to go.” Carter opened Shannon Brewing Company in 2014, and it produces about 3,000 barrels per year, he said. Each type of beer is created using a re-heating process; all-natural, 100% malted barley; and locally sourced spring water. “They bring us grains, and they don’t sit on the oor or in the brewery more than a week before going in the tank,” Carter said about the begin- nings of the 18-day brewing process. “And we’re sitting on a spring that is the oldest documented spring in Texas.” Many of Shannon Brewing Company’s beers,

Wise Guys Pizzeria Longtime partners keep business in the family

F or Larry McCain and Kevin McNamara, business partners and owners of Wise Guys Piz- zeria in Roanoke, the pizza business is all about family. When the pair branched out after years at corporate restaurants, McNamara looked to his uncle and godfather, a successful entrepreneur in California who created the Wise Guys brand. “He is my why we have a ‘Godfather booth’ in both restaurants.” Together, and with a mix of the style of Chicago gangsters of old and the wise guys, or great thinkers, of today, McNamara and McCain set out to create a restaurant that was uniquely their own. The pair rst launched Wise Guys Pizzeria in Grapevine in 2015, and it was not long before they were approached for an expansion oppor- tunity in downtown Roanoke. “This was the rst building on the south end,” McNamara said about the Roanoke location. “We weren’t even talking about it yet, but we saw the momentum here.” “It was a scary thought,” McCain added. “We were making it through our rst year, which is usually your hardest.” godfather and the reason why I got into the busi- ness,” McNamara said of his uncle. “He’s the reason

The pair said they strive to create a family-friendly atmosphere at Wise Guys, while the business is centered on pizza, pasta, premium drafts, prompt delivery, purpose, people and Proverbs 13:20, which states whoever walks with the wise will become wise. “It’s about having a purpose and loving on your people.

WHAT IS ALLIANCETEXAS? Envisioned as a rst-of-its-kind private and industrial airport, AllianceTexas has grown into a 26,000-acre master-planned development. It includes the more than $300 million Fort Worth Alliance Airport, 4 million square feet of development at Alliance Town Center and more than 4,000 multifamily housing units.

ONGOING DEVELOPMENTS At the end of 2019, AllianceTexas had more than $10 billion in capital investment dedicated to ongoing projects in Tarrant and Denton counties.

has seen unprecedented growth in recent years, more than doubling its lifetime economic impact since 2010. “It’s night and day,” said Jackie Pierce, owner of Big Frog Custom TShirts & More at Alliance Town Center. “It’s fun to navigate these waters and see what’s happening in the area. For the better part of 15 years, nothing happened here. Now, it’s like ‘Wow!’” “There are company operations and activities we never thought of or heard of,” added Burton. “It’s clearly not just aviation. The airport was the

“AllianceTexas’ success can be attributed to the continued collabora- tive relationship between public and private sectors, with a shared vision and goal for community and growth,” Hillwood President Mike Berry said in a company news release in January. The development now has key part- nerships with BNSF Railway, Amazon, FedEX and other industry leaders, he said, and through those partnerships, AllianceTexas has become a unique testbed for new technologies. “We have tried to

the region accelerated in 2015. “Anytime they have success, it helps us,” Roanoke City Manager Scott Campbell said. “Whether it’s a retail, industrial or manufacturing component, people come into the area and ultimately make their way to Roanoke.” The addition of major facilities, such as an Amazon Air regional hub at Fort Worth Alliance Airport, a Mercedes-Benz business operations center near I-35W and Charles Schwab headquarters, anchor of the Front 44 mixed-use development at Circle T Ranch, have only increased growth, Burton said. “It’s a pretty signicant number [of workers], and it has an impact on the service industries: hotels, restaurants and shops,” he said. “It has a signi- cant impact beyond just the borders of our property.” Industrial development is the bread and butter, Burton said, but Alliance- Texas has helped to grow neighboring communities by spurring residential and school growth.

Industrial/mixed- use/oce Future development Mobility Innovation Zone

Hillwood has taken a proactive approach with the AllianceTexas development by establishing utilities, easements, transmission lines and other vital infrastructure on land that might not see development for years, Hillwood Executive Vice President Bill Burton said. “It’s very unique to have a property owner … who has a com- mitment to the long-term vision,” Burton said. “It’s really about quality in planning and creating something that’s unique.” After adding 800 acres of new land in 2019, AllianceTexas remains around 50% developed. The development currently has more than 50 million square feet of completed develop- ment, which is the equivalent of around 800 football elds. “You’re going to see development velocity continue to increase,” Burton said.

The economic impact of the development is more than $83 billion since 1989. AllianceTexas properties have also paid more than $2.3 billion in taxes to cities, counties and school districts. “When we started, you had virtually no business and industry in Northeast Tarrant County,” Burton said. “Now, you have the commercial base, and as people come, you need the amenities.” Future innovation Hillwood’s partnership with AllianceTexas-based companies led to the creation last spring of a Mobility Innovation Zone. It is centered around Alliance Airport and the BNSF Railway

such as autonomous lift vehicles, autonomous container and product capabilities, an air taxi service and 5G infrastructure, he said. “The next evolution in mobility is the mobility of people and product,” Burton added. “I remember when we didn’t have cell phones,” he said. “Things have come a long way, and more is coming, and we need to be prepared. We want to do something bigger and bolder. We’re focused on the here and now, but we’re also focused on the future.”

ROANOKE VILLAGE Newstream Commercial, the developer of downtown Roanoke’s latest mixed-use development project, is spending millions of dollars to attract potential office, medical, restaurant and retail clients.

COMPILED BY IAN PRIBANIC DESIGNED BY KATHERINE BOREY

LAYING THE GROUNDWORK

CREATING BUILD-TO-SUIT DEVELOPMENTS Roanoke Village is build-to-suit. Here is a breakdown of that process.

SOURCES: NEWSTREAM COMMERCIAL,

Newstream Commercial has spent $11 per square foot on entitlements, including utilities, sewage, landscaping and access roads. So far, the developer has

money into a number of entitlements to make Roanoke Village as build- ready as possible, Anthony said. “In the real estate world, that means it’s shovel-ready,” Anthony said. “All you have to do is submit your plan to the city, and you’re ready to go.” According to Anthony, the total cost of Newstream’s initial expenses on entitlements—such as access roads to U.S. 377 and Parish, curbs, landscaping, sewage and utilities— totals $11 per square foot. That comes to nearly $3 million for the more than 268,000-square-foot development. “It speaks to their confidence that they could do that,” Campbell said. “That’s happening more and more over the years, where people are building buildings without knowing who the end users are going to be because they feel so confident they will get them [leased].” The demand is coming to Roanoke, Nystrom said, and many entrepre- neurs do not have the funds or expe- rience to navigate the entitlement process with local municipalities. “They want to buy a pad that’s ready to go, and we need to be able to put in all the infrastructure,” Nystrom said. “We believe in Roanoke. There is a lot of growth occurring on the resi- dential and business side.”

BUILDING OUT

With the Springhill Suites hotel as the only confirmed building to be constructed so far, about 192,000 square feet of land is still open to entrepreneurs.

The Springhill Suites is expected to be completed sometime in 2021 and host 128 rooms.

“We’re developing that land to put up the Springhill Suites,” Newstream Commercial CEO Tim Nystrom said. “Some complementary use for that development is office and medical.” Site plans indicate an additional four lots on the development at a minimum of 28,000 square feet each. “We have two concepts,” Anthony said, noting that the site could even- tually feature medical or office uses as well as restaurant and retail space on lots facing U.S. 377. Roanoke Village is also build-to- suit, Anthony said, which means

entrepreneurs will have the option of constructing their own building without buying land and then nego- tiating a lease. “It’s market-driven,” Roanoke City Manager Scott Campbell said. “They’re building pads and getting the site ready because they’re that confident that things will come here and that they’ll get signatures on the lease. Some developers are more comfortable with that than others.” With hopes of targeting high-pro- file retail, medical, office and restau- rant clients, Newstream has poured

available space at Roanoke Village. “It’s the most amount of continuous land for sale on the downtown strip, and that’s an added value," he said. Located at the southeast corner of U.S. 377 and Parish Lane, Roanoke Village will be home to the second hotel in the downtown area. The Peabody Hotel and Confer- ence Center received approval last year. Roanoke Village will feature a 4-story, 128-room Springhill Suites by Marriott located adjacent to the Watermark apartments.
