DALLAS, Jan. 12, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Presidio Plaza, a 166,225-square-foot regional shopping center in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth-area community of Denton.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Denton-based LAD Ventures LLC. Dallas-based Steeplechase Ventures, LLC acquired the asset and will retain NorthBridge Management for property management.  

Originally constructed a regional outlet mall called Stonehill Center, the seller purchased the property in 2016, leased it up to 91 percent, expanded the property with the addition of 30,000-square-feet and rebranded it as Presidio Plaza in 2021. The center is home to diverse local and regional tenancy.

Presidio Plaza is at 5800 N. Interstate 35 in Denton, which, with its 42 percent population growth since 2010, is one of the top 25 fastest-growing cities in America. The center is located at the intersection of Interstate 35 and Loop 288, which has a combined traffic count of 198,489 vehicles per day. The property is also adjacent to Rayzor Ranch, a 400-acre, mixed-use development with multi-housing, hospitality and retail that draws traffic to the center. Additionally, both the University of North Texas and Texas Women’s University’s combined 50,000 students are within the trade area that includes 99,284 residents earning an average annual household income of $64,942.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Adam Howells and Ryan Shore and Analyst Matthew Barge.
