Developers who are revamping Oak Lawn’s Turtle Creek Village shopping center have landed another major tenant.
Athleta – the women’s’ yoga, athletic and fitness apparel firm which is owned by Gap Inc. – has leased the prime storefront facing on Oak Lawn Avenue just north of Blackburn Street.
The Athleta store joins grocer Fresh Market as the first major tenants in the remodeled shopping center, which is being developed by Lincoln Property Co.
Dallas-based O’Brien Architecture designed the makeover of the project, which was originally built in the 1960s and 1970s.
The Fresh Market store is scheduled to open next year.
