DALLAS—Velocis, a Dallas-based private equity real estate fund manager, has named Weitzman to direct project leasing and property management at two landmark Tarrant County retail centers, Fort Worth’s historic Ridglea Village and Colleyville’s lifestyle center Town Center Colleyville.
Gretchen Miller and Stephen Wise with Weitzman are handling project leasing, and Weitzman’s Vicky Johnson is property manager, for the two centers, which together incorporate a total of 358,424 square feet.
Town Center Colleyville, which benefits from an accessible and visible location in the heart of a dense trade area with affluent incomes, is a 246,3070-square-foot high-profile lifestyle center located at 5605 Colleyville Road. The center is anchored by upscale grocer Market Street and entertainment concept Studio Movie Grill and includes a 6,600-square-foot Pet Supermarket junior anchor. The center also features a number of restaurants, including Gloria’s, Celebrity Bakery, Luna Grill, Costa Vida, McAlister’s Deli, Loveria Caffe and others. Specialty concepts include Brazos Running Co., Austin Lorin, Art Impressions, Take 5 Birkenstock and others. Beauty concepts and services include Sola Salon, Great Clips, Massage Envy, Castle Nail Spa, Rooster’s Men’s Grooming, FedEx Kinko’s, First American Title and several others.
“The center featured prominent spaces that are available for lease, and we also are targeting full-service restaurants for a high-profile endcap space,” Miller said.
Ridglea Village is a 112,117-square-foot historic property located at 6100 Camp Bowie Boulevard, a major thoroughfare well known for its red-brick surface and proximity to some of Fort Worth’s landmark neighborhoods and its famed Cultural District. The center, originally developed in the 1940s, features Spanish-style architecture, balconies and clay-tile roofs. Key tenants at Ridglea Village include Haltom’s Jewelers, La Madeleine, Campisi’s Italian, R Taco, Little Lily Sushi, FedEx Office, Honeycomb Salon & Colorlab, Eurospa, MetroPCS and others. The property also has a second level that is home to office and medical office space.
Wise noted that the center is getting attention not just from retail space users but office users. “The second-floor executive office suites space offers a signature address with access and visibility in the heart of some of Fort Worth’s strongest and most established neighborhoods,” he said.
