ALLEN, TX-Trademark Property Co. and its joint venture partners have forged three more groundbreaking deals to shore up their positioning in the northeastern tier for their 1.1-million-sf Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm. A residential partner is on board for the $52-million first phase while two more retail anchors have signed for the $232-million town center.

Franklin, TN-based Southern Land Co. LLC has joined the development partnership, led by Trademark and backed by Coventry Real Estate Advisors of New York City and Cleveland-headquartered Developers Diversified Realty. Further fanning the development fire, Ann Arbor, MI-based Borders Group Inc. plans to open a 24,000-sf bi-level store in the 68-acre town center and Studio Movie Grill will plant an eight-screen, 1,300-seat prototype at the northern edge beside the proposed 135-key hotel.

Terry Montesi, CEO of the Fort Worth-based Trademark, tells that ground will break in 30 to 45 days on two of the three, as-yet un-branded residential structures. The mixed-use buildings will have street-level retail and four floors of residential units. “We will start out with urban rentals, but we are keeping our options open for future condo conversion,” he says.
