DALLAS, June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — EDENS, a leading national retail real estate developer with more than 125 retail places nationally, announced redevelopment plans for Casa Linda Plaza, first acquired by EDENS in 2015.

EDENS has embraced the historical significance of Casa Linda Plaza, a mainstay in East Dallas since 1945.The redevelopment work will reinforce the property as the central gathering place for the neighborhood by enhancing the outdoor space and by bringing new retail and restaurants to renew Casa Linda for future decades.

“East Dallas is a close-knit community that deserves more places for connecting and engaging in conversation. We want to give the neighborhood a reason to come together that is uniquely their own,” said Tom Kiler, Managing Director at EDENS. “EDENS’ purpose is to enrich community, and these redevelopment initiatives will be rooted in and reflective of East Dallas.”
