STAFFORD, Texas (KTRK) -- The wait is almost over! The Houston area is officially getting an In-N-Out Burger.
A 350,000 square foot retail and restaurant development in Stafford called the Grid will be home to the popular burger spot.
StreetLevel Investments has revealed that the former Texas Instruments campus, located between W. Airport and S. Kirkwood on Hwy. 59, will be turned into a mixed-used development.
The Grid will include 2,400 residential units, several hotels, a premier health club, luxury cinema, small parks, and jogging and bike trails.
In addition to In-N-Out, the Grid will also feature Drive Shack, a premier golf entertainment destination for players of every level, and Whiskey Cake, a restaurant with craft cocktails and farm-fresh comfort food.
Longtime Stafford Mayor Leonard Scarcella said he's heard about In-N-Out Burger and is anxious to give it a try.
"I have not had an In-n-Out burger, so I'm very much looking forward to it," he said.
The mayor is not the only one who can't wait for The Grid to open.
"I know it's going to be the perfect hangout place for me and my friends," said Stafford resident Shelby Vezner.
The burger chain released a statement on their plans for The Grid:
"We are excited about the opportunity to become a part of the vibrant Stafford community and the great new mixed-use project known as "The Grid".
