About the New Lake Walk Town Center Near Texas A&M
The 5-acre Lake Atlas will anchor the 180,000 square-foot development. The pedestrian-friendly, wellness-focused Lake Walk Town Center will offer an upscale reprieve from the hustle-and-bustle of student-focused retail, restaurant and housing dominating the Brazos Valley. The 176-room Stella Hotel and The MatureWell Lifestyle Center for seniors are under construction in Lake Walk. Construction has just begun on a park, a pavilion and an observation tower. There is already plans for both retail and restaurant spaces.
Inspiration for Lake Walk came from the tree rings and the environmental and architectural elements of the town center. It incorporates the “A-Trail” — a linear trail system of over two miles of parks, trails, ponds, Lake Atlas and wellness amenities emphasizing a healthy lifestyle.
The word ‘Lake’ epitomizes the natural surroundings at Atlas, while the tree rings connect the ‘Walk’ and architectural elements in the town center, according to Spencer Clements, Principal of ATLAS and Traditions Development. The Lake Walk ties with nature to distinguish the town center and Atlas as exceptional places to live, work and play.
