Main Event is set to join Topgolf and Cinemark next year at Cottonwood Creek Market. Developers also are in talks with four restaurants, and hope to announce plans soon for housing in the complex.




Austen Baldridge was instrumental in bringing Cottonwood Creek Market to Waco, and there he was on the front row when the 14-screen Cinemark movie theater hosted a special showing for invited guests Oct. 20.

Baldridge, a Baylor University graduate and a vice president with NewQuest Properties in Houston, said he found the new movie house at New Road and Interstate 35 a treat for the senses.

“I know Cinemark is happy, and I think it will do well there,” said Baldridge, whose 143-acre mixed-use development already has welcomed Topgolf, with its weatherproof tee boxes, restaurant, lounge and miniature golf. He said a Main Event location should arrive first quarter next year, bringing bowling, billiards, arcade games, laser tag, gravity ropes and a zipline.

“I can’t drop names, but I can provide a tease,” Baldridge said of more coming attractions. “I’m working four restaurant leases on pads in front of Cinemark and Main Event. I would say two are new to the market.”

He said prospects represent a mix of sit-down and fast-food restaurants.

Though not based here, Baldridge said he enjoys traveling to Waco, checking on construction progress and meeting with potential tenants. He said interest remains strong in Cottonwood Creek Market’s housing component, and he soon will announce “adding several hundred units of multi-family.”
