A German-based grocery chain could be making its way to Kyle after planning and zoning commissioners Tuesday unanimously recommended zoning for a parcel of land that might house a Lidl grocery store.
Sheldon-Tanglewood, Ltd. requested the rezoning of 4.5 acres, located at the northwest corner of Marketplace Avenue and S. FM 1626 near the Kyle H-E-B, from multi-family residential to retail services.
According to the zoning change application, Sheldon-Tanglewood, Ltd., the owner of the property, is represented by Dunaway Associates.
According to a letter from Dan Caballero, project manager, Dunaway Associates is representing Lidl, a German-based international discount supermarket chain.
Rezoning the property to retail services for grocery store and retail use is more compatible with the proposed zoning than multi-family residential, Caballero stated in the letter.
Caballero was present at the Tuesday evening P&Z meeting but said he had no comment at the time.
Last fall, a Lidl spokesperson confirmed to The Dallas Morning News that the company was beginning to scout for sites in Texas.
Lidl spent more than $10 million on land purchases in North Texas and reportedly was scouting locations in the Dallas and Houston areas.
