Jack Gosnell Joins UCR as Executive Vice President
DALLAS, Texas, April 1, 2004 – United Commercial Realty, a landmark retail real estate services firm in Dallas, Texas, has announced the association of long-time real estate professional Jack Gosnell with the firm. Gosnell, President of Jack Gosnell Real Estate, said, “We have always worked well together and have joined forces for special projects over the years. The timing for a permanent union is perfect.”
By consistently delivering quality tenants to high profile retail centers over the years UCR has earned a position as the preeminent specialty retail brokerage house in Texas. The firm is the Dallas/Ft. Worth member of ChainLinks Retail Advisors, the largest retail-only full-service real estate provider in North America. This association allows its members to offer immediate and comprehensive local knowledge, while being part of a national corporate structure designed to maximize corporate client representation.
UCR President & CEO Mickey Ashmore indicated that Jack Gosnell’s 30 years of experience and his focus on the Uptown/Downtown markets would instantly give UCR a highly increased profile in that market. Gosnell has focused on the Oak Lawn/Uptown market since 1974 and has been concentrating on the redevelopment of Downtown Dallas for the past four years. Gosnell said, “For Dallas to remain a world-class city our Downtown must, once again, become a vibrant urban center. UCR will provide tremendous resources, contacts and ultimately tenants for this effort. UCR’s leasing successes with urban lifestyle projects such as Mockingbird Station, Knox Bridge and Southlake Town Square qualify them for the formidable task of bringing retail back to the Central Business District. Downtown is just a mile south of City Place and the buildings are there already,” he said.
