BEST SHOPPING CENTER SOUTH OF THE TRINITY
Southern Dallas County is known as a dining and shopping [desert]. Alas, some of us live here, and we celebrate the small things. Hillside Village in Cedar Hill spares us the 25-minute trek to Arlington that we took in many years past for our shopping needs. With its lively central fountain and a few chain restaurants scattered here and there, it's an outdoor oasis where you can spend the day with the family, nibbling on a Wetzel's Pretzel and watching your kids splashing amidst the water jets. The shopping center has an American Eagle, H&M, Barnes & Noble, Chico's, Express, and other major brands, served with copious parking on well-kept grounds. And it's got that undeniably warm, laid-back, multicultural southern Dallas vibe, which you can't find anywhere else in DFW.

A partnership between Trademark and Prudential Financial redeveloped the asset in 2014.

Located at 305 West FM 1382 along Route 67, Hillside Village is 16 miles southeast from downtown Dallas, in Cedar Hill’s retail epicenter. According to Roy Williams, CEO of PREP Property Group Inc., the asset includes an interactive fountain, kids’ play area, village green and electronic vehicle charging station. The shopping center is anchored by Dick’s Sporting Goods, Dillard’s, Barnes & Noble, with the tenant roster also including Old Navy, ULTA, H&M, Champ’s, Victoria’s Secret and Express.
Williams added that the Dallas/Fort Worth metro attracts more than 40 million visitors annually. Hillside Village caters to roughly 138,000 residents within a 5-mile radius, with a median household income of $67,000, according to Yardi Matrix data.
