DALLAS, Jan. 20, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of The Shops at Prosper Trail, an 85,948-square-foot shopping center shadow anchored by a top-performing Kroger in the growing Dallas-area community of Prosper, Texas.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, MQ Development Company. Younger Partners Investments acquired the asset.  

Constructed in 2016, the 98-percent-leased The Shops at Prosper Trail is anchored by a Kroger Marketplace and features a dynamic roster of nation and local tenants that include Anytime Fitness, Wingstop, Ebby Halliday Properties, Republic Title of Texas, Baylor Scott & White Rehab, Pacific Dental Services, Club Pilates, Hollywood Feed, Palm Beach Tan, Eddie Napoli, Eye Gallery, Supercuts and Peach Wave Yogurt. Additionally, the center includes three ground leases.

The Shops at Prosper Trail is at 1145-1160 N. Preston Rd along the iconic Preston Road corridor in Prosper, which is a north Dallas community directly in the growth path within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The property is surrounded by an affluent and growing population that includes 41,603 residents earning an average annual household income of $181,387 living within a three-mile radius of the property. This represents a 252 percent population increase during the last decade. Additionally, the center is proximate to large employment drivers, the Dallas North Tollway and within high-performing retail submarket.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Adam Howells and Analyst Zach Riebe.

According to JLL, “DFW is the fastest-growing metro area in the country, and the city of Prosper is in the bull’s eye, creating unprecedented investor demand.”
