30 Years of Growth: Fort Worth Trademark Celebrates Anniversary with Continued Development
February 26, 2022
The company counted more than 191 new leases totaling more than 800,000 square feet and added top brands like Tommy Bahama Home, Fabletics, Sweetgreen, True Food Kitchen, johnnie-O and SPACES, among others.
In Fort Worth, a key signing at the end of the year was the first American site of Quince, an award-winning restaurant headquartered in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The restaurant is expected to open later this year at West Bendlocated just off Interstate 30 and University Drive in space formerly occupied by Bartaco.
It was a welcome surge of activity in a year still reeling from the economic impacts of the pandemic. The signing also set the stage for the company’s 30th anniversary celebration.
“What has worked for Trademark is really caring about what we’re building in communities,” said Terry Montesi, CEO of Trademark. “A lot of the developers that we watch go into communities and they do their formula and they just say, ‘Community, we’re good at it, let us do what we do and you’re going to like it. We don’t believe it. We do research. We work in partnership with communities. We listen to people, and we believe that if we give the customer what they want, the risk is much lower, and the municipalities are happier and the customers are happier.”
