dma | property served as the general manager of this convenience-oriented, upscale retail strip center in Normal, Illinois for more than six years, through its sale to new ownership. Our leadership experience and ability to effectively team with the client’s existing leasing partner supported the property through an economic recovery and helped streamline operating costs, making it a viable and attractive asset.
The Shoppes at College Hills offers more than 425,000 square feet of retail space and features a broad range of 25 retailers and restaurants anchored by Von Maur, Target, and a freestanding Hobby Lobby. A de-malling project in the late 1990s created the center’s unique layout.
Our team provided management oversight, operational leadership, and marketing insight to Shoppes staff. We collaborated with the client on accounting and asset management matters and worked alongside The Pollard Group on retail tenant delivery. dma | property also supported the transition to new ownership and has provided ongoing, as-needed expertise.
