Venture Commercial Real Estate announced today it has completed two transactions for LA Fitness locations in Oak Cliff and Coppell. The 34,000 square foot lease for the LA Fitness in Oak Cliff will be an additional anchor in Wynnewood Village, a 65-acre mixed-use development located at the northwest corner of Illinois Ave. and Zang Blvd., four miles south of downtown Dallas. Venture also brokered the land sale for an LA Fitness build-to-suit at the northwest corner of State Highway 121 and Denton Tap Road in Coppell.

John  Zikos  and  Jonathan  Cooper with  Venture  Commercial  represented LA  Fitness in the lease negotiations for the Oak Cliff location. Venture’s Ben Hines and Mike Wilson represented the landlord, Brixmor Property Group.

For the Coppell location, Zikos  and  Cooper  with  Venture represented  LA  Fitness.  Amy Pjetrovic with Venture represented the seller, Legacy Gateway Ltd. John  Kalamaras  of  RealSource  Partners worked with Venture on both transactions.

“Wynnewood Village is currently undergoing a $30 million renovation and is centrally located in a dense suburban market south of downtown Dallas,” said Zikos. “LA Fitness is an excellent anchor for this development and will help drive traffic to the area when it opens in 2019.”

Zikos and Cooper have represented LA Fitness in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio markets for 15 years, handling more than 57 lease and sale transactions on their behalf.

“Health clubs continue to be a great traffic generator for shopping centers,” said Cooper. “The Coppell location is a 37,000 square foot prototype on five acres in a growing retail node and is expected to open by the end of the year.”
