May 28, 2021

DALLAS, May 28, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Village on the Parkway, a 343,911-square-foot, pedestrian-friendly urban retail village anchored by Whole Foods Market and AMC Theatre in Dallas, Texas. 

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller. VOP Partners LLC acquired the property and plans exterior updates, the addition of more green space and free shuttle service for customers. Additionally, the new owner will densify the vacant pad across from Whole Foods. 

Village on the Parkway was completed in 1981 as Sakowitz Village, an urban lifestyle center with high-end shops and restaurants. The retail property was redeveloped in 2014, adding Whole Foods, AMC Theatre and refreshed restaurant concepts. The property currently consists of eight retail buildings home to a mix of best-in-class, grocery, essential and soft goods retailers and high-traffic restaurants, including RA Sushi, Neighborhood Services, Yard House, Hopdoddy, Sidecar Social, Pie Tap and more. At the time of sale, all tenants were open and operating, and an overwhelming majority of them were back to pre-COVID foot traffic. 

The retail property is situated on approximately 32 contiguous acres at 5100 Belt Line Rd. in Dallas’s Platinum Corridor, which is the city’s biggest office market. This infill location is at the bullseye intersection of Belt Line Rd. and Dallas North Tollway, which exposes the property to more than 200,000 vehicles per day. The center serves a trade area of approximately 790,000 residents and is centrally located among Dallas-Fort Worth’s most affluent neighborhoods. The property includes a vacant 1.5-acre land parcel and two other potential densification sites. 

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Barry Brown, Chris Gerard and Ryan Shore and Analysts Jason Jacobs and Matthew Barge.

According to JLL, “There was tremendous investor interest in the offering as the property is extremely well positioned to continue its retail – mixed use evolution.”
