The 150,000-square-foot Trinity West shopping center in West Dallas is getting a new owner and might soon attract a new grocery store.
Ray Washburne, co-owner of luxury shopping center Highland Park Village and other property around Dallas, has purchased the shopping center on the northwest corner of Singleton Boulevard and Hampton Road in a partnership represented by DuWest Realty.
DuWest will lease and manage the property and discussions are underway with a "handful of prospects, including grocers," Washburne said in an emailed reply.
He’s confident the center can attract a grocery store again to a 36,682-square-foot space that is empty, but over the years has been a Fiesta Mart and a Minyard Food Store.
"The neighborhood deserves a quality option of where to shop for groceries," Washburne said. "It is our goal to deliver a quality grocer in the shopping center. In addition to the existing neighborhood, there is a major increase in housing in the immediate area, which demands a grocer."
The center’s other tenants include AutoZone, CitiTrends and Family Dollar, he said.
West Dallas presents an option for affordable housing, Washburne said, and it’s minutes from Trinity Groves, downtown Dallas, the Medical District, Design District and all of the nearby Oak Cliff neighborhoods.
More than 3,500 multifamily units are under construction or have been built nearby recently. "The path of development is approaching this shopping center from the east, north and south," he said.
Another neighborhood asset is the Texas Rangers MLP Youth Academy at the Mercy Street sports complex, he said.
While Washburne is known for his luxury shopping center, he has been buying property for years around Dallas, including the Design District and East Dallas.
About 10 years ago, Washburne bought a shopping center at the southwest corner of West Illinois and South Hampton and attracted an Aldi grocery store to the area.
"The intersection of Illinois and Hampton in Oak Cliff has one of the highest population densities in Dallas County," he said. "We love the traffic and the immediate demographics of the neighborhood."
