As reported by Focus Daily News
Trademark Property Co., the operating partner for Uptown Village at Cedar Hill, has announced a multi-million dollar renovation of the 610,000 square foot shopping center that includes a re-brand, enhanced entrances, upgraded landscaping, common area improvements, a new children’s play area, new amenities for adults and children, and new signage throughout the property. In addition, Trademark is working with several prospective junior anchors to add to the merchandising mix.
"We invested in Uptown Village at Cedar Hill six months ago because we saw the enormous potential in the shopping center. We made a commitment to the great community of Cedar Hill to evolve their beloved shopping center into something even better, keeping our core customers happy, while attracting new shoppers and tenants to Cedar Hill,” said Terry Montesi, CEO of Trademark. "We have substantial experience evolving shopping environments to exceed shopper’s expectations. That’s what we plan to do with Uptown Village at Cedar Hill.”
After acquiring a minority interest in Uptown Village at Cedar Hill in the summer of 2014, Trademark conducted extensive research with Alexander Babbage, one of the top research firms in the U.S., to gather key information about the center’s shoppers including demographics, trade area and most importantly, what customers wanted at the property including stores, amenities, safety and more. Following the research and information gathering, Trademark conducted a design charrette last fall at Uptown Village at Cedar Hill with numerous architects, place makers, the City of Cedar Hill and the onsite management team to collaborate and formulate a strategic plan and direction for the property. Trademark has created a plan to evolve the property and give the community a best-in-class shop, dine and play experience.
"We are currently in negotiations with several new tenants – a mix of local and national retailers – totaling more than 35,000 square feet. They are all very excited about our planned improvements to the shopping center. In fact, the renovations are driving significant interest for potential tenants,” said Maranda Auzenne, general manager, Uptown Village at Cedar Hill. "Thanks to Trademark, we’re being re-energized and will be stronger and better than ever.”
Uptown Village at Cedar Hill currently includes 350,000 square feet of specialty stores and restaurants, as well as 31,000 square feet of office space. The popular center has more than 65 tenants including Charming Charlie, Chico’s, Hollister, James Avery, Old Navy, Papaya, The Children’s Place and Victoria’s Secret. The anchor retailers are Barnes & Noble, Dillard’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
