New Additions to Chip & Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia in Waco

Chip & Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia in Waco, Texas

As of May 18, 2020

As a local, I often get a first hand look at what’s happening at Magnolia in Waco.

For instance, last week, I drove by the Grist Mill where Chip and Joanna Gaines film their cooking show! Then, this week, I took a look at the new construction happening at the Silos.  

Don’t worry! I am going to share everything with YOU!

And if you want to see some beautiful pictures of Magnolia Market at the Silos, check out the virtual tour! 


New Construction at Magnolia in Waco, Tx

This map shows the layout of Magnolia in Waco, Texas. If you have visited before, then you know that the right side of the map (plus, the coffee shop/furniture showroom) shows what already exists. 

Therefore, the top left quarter of the map are the construction plans for the new additions to the Silos.  This is where the parking lot originally was located. 


The exciting part is that construction started months ago!

The rendering, below, gives you a better idea of what the new construction will look like with the existing buildings located at Magnolia in Waco. This is posted at the future entrance to the Silos.

Outdoor Spaces at Magnolia in Waco, Tx

Chip and Joanna Gaines created a tranquil environment at the Silos in Waco that Magnolia is known for.  The new additions include many outdoor spaces comprised of an open lawn, landscaped walkways and gardens with water features. New areas that are both shaded and open for seating or play will be built. 

Plus, lots of room for friends and families to enjoy time together. For example, a wiffle ball field, splash pad, playground and an amphitheater are in the works.


To the right of the Magnolia Press coffee shop, there will be a covered patio with an outdoor fireplace. Nearby water features will provide peaceful garden spaces for guests. 



More retail spaces at the Silos in Waco 

Other additions to the Silos in Waco include an information center, restrooms and a concession stand. Plus, about six smaller buildings that will be used for various retail spaces. 

The white building to the right, in the pic below, will be the Magnolia Home furniture showroom.  Construction on this building was complete in 2019, when the adjoining Magnolia Press coffee shop opened in October.

The larger building will be a concession stand & the three buildings on the right are scheduled to be retail space.

Retail spaces will include: 


Restored Church at Magnolia in Waco, Tx

This 126 year old Presbyterian Church will be moved piece by piece to the new location. For example, the bell tower was currently removed for restoration purposes, but will be added back to the structure.

This will be a place for reflection for guests of the Silos in Waco. In addition, it will be the first thing guests see as the enter this side of Magnolia in Waco. 

Update August 2020: The 6 retail spaces are painted white. Plus, the church exterior is completed and the lead glass windows returned to their original location.
