DALLAS — Jones Lang LaSalle Retail today announced the firm has been selected byInland American Retail Management LLC and Inland Diversified to lease seven shopping centers in the Dallas region. The properties total more than one million square feet and are nearly 95 percent occupied.  

Senior Vice Presidents Robin Smith and Lance W. Taylor, CCIM are leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on these transactions.

“The Dallas retail market has seen healthy decreases in vacancy during the last year with shopping centers and power centers leading the pack,” said Smith. “We expect a mix of local and regional service tenants and restaurants to continue seeking space in these class A and class B shopping centers.”
