FORT WORTH (March 3, 2018) – Metroplex Medical Centre will open a new facility in Sundance Square to serve downtown Fort Worth beginning mid-2018 with more than 5,300 square feet at 201 Commerce Street.
Founded by Dr. Manuel Griego Jr. more than 30 years ago in Dallas, Metroplex Medical Centres places an emphasis on providing a caring, comprehensive, and proactive approach to primary care. Metroplex can accommodate same day appointments, walk-in emergencies, blood tests, x-rays, allergy testing and acute illnesses such as colds, ear, throat and sinus infections. The Centre’s office will be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am – 4:30 pm.
“Having a medical provider in Sundance Square will be an enormous benefit to the people who work and live in downtown Fort Worth,” said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square. “Offering the convenience of medical services within walking distance of the office or residence alleviates the stress of leaving downtown to obtain needed healthcare services.”
Metroplex Medical will be located on the first level of Garage 1 at First and Commerce Streets. The space will be outfitted to accommodate a medical office over the next few months.
Within Metroplex Medical Centre will be ReNue Pharmacy, a full-service retail pharmacy and dental services provided by Marie A. Holliday, DMD who will provide oral, head and neck diagnostic, preventative and exams.
In addition to numerous restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues, Sundance Square offers many service-oriented businesses. Along with Metroplex Medical, guests will find banking services, a dentist, yoga, dry cleaners, as well as men’s and women’s hair stylists.
Sundance Square’s generous parking program offers free parking to guests visiting Sundance Square after 5 pm on weekdays. Before 5 pm, parking is free with a purchase from a Sundance Square restaurant or retailer. Validation is good for 2.5 hours of dining or shopping, or four hours for weekday movies. Weekends are free throughout the day and evening.
Guests also have the option to valet park for free throughout Sundance Square with purchase from a Sundance Square merchant. Just look for the red umbrellas in 10 locations within Sundance Square.

“We have created an incredible setting for shopping and entertainment that you won’t find anywhere else in North Texas,” remarked Campbell. “Careful consideration goes into each merchant we bring to Sundance Square to keep a balance of entertainment, shopping, and restaurants to provide our visitors, downtown residents and office workers the greatest experience.”
Launched in 2012, Sundance Square’s complimentary valet service has 10 locations throughout the development for guests to utilize. Guests can park their vehicle at one of the valet red umbrellas and pick it up at another location. All complimentary for customers. The valet service enhances Sundance Square’s extensive parking program that includes free parking during the weeknights and all weekend.
Sundance Square just got a little sweeter with the addition of FunkyTown Donuts & Drafts, opening this spring at 132 East Fourth Street.
“Sundance Square is pleased to welcome FunkyTown as they fill a niche not currently being delivered in downtown,” said Johnny Campbell, Sundance Square President and CEO. “We had many requests to bring donuts to Sundance Square and we are glad to add this new food category. With FunkyTown, Schakolad, Nestlé and It’s Sugar right around the corner, Fourth Street is a real sweet destination.”
The 1,248-square-foot, family-owned bakery will offer a variety of freshly baked donuts daily, including yeast and cake donuts with an interesting twist on toppings and glazes, including maple and candied bacon; The Chipper (a chocolate glazed donut topped with salted potato chips); Star Berry (a blueberry glazed donut with white chocolate shavings and topped with fresh blueberries); a S’moors (dark chocolate glazed donut topped with graham cracker crumbles and roasted marshmallow); the Bramble Berry (blackberry lemonade glazed donut topped with fresh blackberries and lemon zest; and many other creative delicacies. The shop will offer gluten-free and vegan options only every Wednesday and Sunday. All flavors come in regular and mini sizes. Donut holes are available in traditional cinnamon sugar and glazed, or a host of flavors.
The Sundance Square shop will be the second Fort Worth location for the specialty bakery. The original FunkyTown Donuts opened on Eighth Avenue near Rosedale in the Hospital District.
“We will rotate several craft beers on tap and pair them with some of our sweet and savory donuts,” said Brandon Moors, who owns FunkyTown with his wife Angie and mother Ruth Moors. “We also will serve a cold brew coffee on tap for our coffee lovers and will of course, still offer hot coffee, too. We will be open later on Friday & Saturday nights with special offerings for the ‘After Hours’ crowd.”
FunkyTown can also provide catering services for large events and weddings, including donut bars and custom messages cut out of donuts. More information, including the flavor schedules, is available at http://funkytowndonuts.com
