FORT WORTH, TEXAS 76109 – November 2023         LanCarte Commercial, a leading full-service commercial real estate firm based in Fort Worth, TX, announces the continued partnership as the leasing team for the Westcliff Shopping Center, a landmark retail destination. Despite the center’s recent acquisition by Partners, formerly NAI Partners, this ongoing partnership underscores LanCarte Commercial’s significant role and expertise within the Fort Worth retail market.

Construction of Westcliff Shopping Center was initiated in 1945, marking the beginning of a significant development in the area with the establishment of Moreland’s Rexall Drug as its first storefront. The opening of Albertson’s closely followed in 1949. Situated close to the TCU campus, Westcliff Shopping Center is a landmark rich in local history and has long been a central hub for the community. The center has successfully combined traditional values with a strong commercial presence, making it a key destination in the neighborhood for decades.

The new ownership structure, effective October 2023, acknowledges the seamless transition and LanCarte Commercial’s proven track record by retaining their services. Partners has chosen to entrust Ben Gehrke and Riley Dow of LanCarte Commercial again with the retail leasing responsibilities.

“We’re looking forward to continuing the momentum we’ve created at Westcliff and working with Partners as they expand their footprint in DFW. Westcliff Shopping Center is a significant property in the Westcliff/TCU area, and we have great things planned for this asset,” said Riley Dow.

LanCarte Commercial’s adeptness in curating a diverse tenant mix is evident in the center’s bustling activity, especially during peak hours, showcasing its vibrancy and consumer appeal.

“I will put LanCarte’s retail sales and leasing expertise up against anyone in the Fort Worth and surrounding markets. Retail is tough, but tough times allow great business partners to rise above,” said Ben Gehrke of LanCarte Commercial’s retail team. “Where other brokerages failed previously, with Westcliff Shopping Center, LanCarte delivered. It isn’t easy, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

Despite the always-changing retail market conditions and the challenge of rising interest rates, the Westcliff neighborhood remains a beacon of growth in the retail market. LanCarte Commercial’s retail commitment to this thriving community remains steadfast, and its history of successful retail leasing speaks for itself.
