The LOCAL Resident Realty team: Nicole Thomas, Amy Timmerman, Thomas Zepeda, Robin Moss Norcross, Jason Thomas, Glen Christy and Beth Arnold

Move over, Sprouts. You’ve got a new neighbor coming to the Lake Highlands Town Center.

LOCAL Resident Realty, which formed in April as the merger of real estate teams C+N+T and pickaperch, will become the newest town center tenant. They’ll move from their temporary digs at Royal and Greenville into Suite 100 (building 2 on the map below) at the corner of Sedgwick Drive and Wildcat Way as soon as their space is finished out.

With Starbucks, Taco Diner, Fish City Grill, Jersey Mike’s, Yogurtland, Hollywood Feed, Joint Chiropractic and Verizon also announced as coming soon and Ideal DentalArtistik Edge and Deluxe Nail Salon up-and-running, the center should soon be hopping.

“This was a big leap of faith we took back in April, and the Lake Highlands community showed us some major love by continuing to refer us and reach out to us for real estate needs,” says Timmerman. “When looking at all the great retail options in Lake Highlands, we thought it important to focus on being at the center, at the heart of Lake Highlands. To us, the town center is exactly that – a gathering place of sorts for the community. Something special about our space is that when we open, our doors will also be open to our neighbors. We want people to pop by and say hello, snag a cup of coffee and use our space as a community meeting place for board meetings, HOA meetings and the like.”

LOCAL Resident expects to open the LHTC office by spring of 2018 and will post design and construction updates on their Facebook page.

    Shopping centers appear to be joining drive in theaters as obsolete real estate uses, as consumers find that there is an alternative to indifferent retail service as well as getting lower costs via Amazon Prime, Blue Apron, and other home delivery
    services which have mastered jumping through hoops for customers.

    The retail mall practice of expecting customers to jump through hoops to get waited on and find a parking spot is a rapidly evaporating shopping practice, according to multiple studies:

    With both the Audelia Road Public Library and the Forest Green Public Library swamped with patrons and the replacement of the latter apparently mired in bureaucratic delays, perhaps the City of Dallas could recoup some of its massive losses on LHTC and improve service to taxpayers by putting in a large public library in this center to show its highest and best use, as retail malls are apparently on their way out.

    It is really great to have a healthy grocery store at long last in LH, just as grocery purchasing is going through a paradigm shift with home delivery of dinner components which may save users 100 hours per year in crowded after work grocery store aisles and long check out lines after. a long day at work.

    Hopefully, this will be the final time that the Dallas City Council will ever infer that it has commercial real estate competence sufficient to put tax payers dollars into a project that requires a critical mass of judgement on human dynamics and real estate basics that is unique to the private developer cadre.

    It would have been nice if the Dallas City Council had put those scarce dollars into street preventive maintenance, library staff and collection development, improved swimming pools especially in lower income communities, and to sufficient code enforcement officers so as to enforce out-of-state investors blatant disregard of basic safety and health standards in multifamily housing units that have been poorly maintained for their advanced age.
