Coming Soon? $12M entertainment complex in works for Mercedes

MERCEDES — Want to hop in a go-kart?

What about smacking some golf balls at a state-of-the-art driving range?

How about some zip-lining or trampolining around.

You may not have to drive all the way to South Padre Island for this kind of fun.

That’s because a new entertainment complex for the Valley is in the works in the Queen City.

The Harbor is a project with a projected price tag of approximately $12 million to develop.

Kamel Salomon Investments, a McAllen-based development company, announced over the weekend it will be building the project in Mercedes.

The Harbor is planned to be built on a tract of land the city purchased in the 1990s at Mile 3 and the frontage road.

“The incentive the Mercedes Industrial Foundation is providing is the land,” Mercedes City Manager Richard Garcia said.

“If he does what he said he’s going to do, then the land becomes the incentive.”
