Southern Land to sell Plano building for undisclosed sum

Southern Land Company has announced the looming sale of its Junction 15, a five-story mixed-use building located in downtown Plano, Texas.

In a release, the Nashville-based company said it is selling the property to a commingled fund managed by New York-based real estate investment firm Clarion Partners for an undisclosed sum.

Junction 15, which opened in 2014, represents a public-private partnership between SLC and the City of Plano. The building is located close to Plano’s Old Town Square and Haggard Park, as well as several restaurants.

“We are proud of the retail and housing options we’ve provided to the community through our successful partnership with the City of Plano,” Brian Sewell, SLC president and chief operating officer, said in the release. “Junction 15 has bolstered an ongoing public-private initiative to spark downtown Plano’s economy. We are confident that Clarion will be an excellent steward of the property and will carry on our work supporting community growth.”

On the Clarion Partners theme, LIT Industrial LP, a CP affiliate, in April paid $16.2 million for an approximately 440,000-square-foot industrial building located in Mt. Juliet.

SLC is undertaking a major mixed-use project in Green Hills (read here).
