Validus Group Acquires 123,000 SF Shopping Center in Dalton, Georgia
By: Validus Group
Dalton Village marks the third retail shopping center acquisition for Validus in the last twelve months, more than tripling the size of its portfolio. The company now owns over 600,000 square feet of real estate throughout the Southeast.
Built in 2009, Dalton Village is anchored by 35,000 square foot discount retailer Robinson Salvage. With products ranging from brand-name clothes to household appliances and furniture, Robinson has built a strong presence in the area and recently completed a 10,000 square foot expansion.
Other suites in the center range from 1,500 to 10,000 square feet and feature amenities including end-cap space, high ceilings and façades, patio space, and LED signage. David Brightwell, VP of Business Development for Validus Group, cited these features and the ability to offer aggressive leasing terms as key points in maximizing the center’s potential.
“We are thrilled to add an asset like Dalton Village to our portfolio,” Brightwell said in a statement. “As one of the newest centers in the Dalton market we’ve already seen a strong amount of leasing interest. The property’s design, high traffic counts and visual appeal make it an ideal location for future tenants. The potential there is tremendous and we are excited to get started.”
