Younger Partners created a new platform to acquire retail properties, Younger Partners Investments. It will target retail from lifestyle to neighborhood centers in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Micah Ashford has been hired to lead the platform.
“We feel like retail is one of the most disrupted sectors of commercial real estate,” says Younger Partners co-founder Moody Younger. “While we can relate to the tough times COVID-19 has created for many, we are confident in the resilience of Texas and we are excited to make this investment in the future of retail and our region. The opportunity to add talent like Micah made the decision to launch this new platform an easy one for us.”
Ashford is coming off a two-year hiatus from a 20-year career as a partner at Dunhill Partners, a leading commercial real estate firm in the Southwest that focuses on shopping centers.
