Junction 15, the multifamily project which has catalyzed the revitalization of downtown Plano, has been sold by Southern Land Company to Clarion Partners, LLC.

Located in historic downtown Plano, Texas, Junction 15 is a five-story urban development. Apartment residents enjoy old-town charm along with modern amenities including a resort-style pool, outdoor grilling stations, a 24-hour fitness center and many entertainment options on 15th Street. The mixed-use development includes 7,700 square feet of retail space anchored by a 7-Eleven and 279 apartments. Apartments feature luxury details such as kitchens designed for entertaining and over-sized bathrooms in studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units.

“Junction 15 is a beautiful, high-quality residential community that has helped the city in its efforts to revitalize downtown Plano,” said Brian Watkins, who is a Managing Director at Clarion Partners. “This project exemplifies the quality and vision the market has come to expect from Southern Land Company, and Clarion Partners is excited to add this development to our portfolio.”

Junction 15, which opened in 2014, represents a public-private partnership between Southern Land Company and the City of Plano. In cooperation with city officials’ long-term goals, Junction 15 is part of a connected urban community. The development is close to Plano’s Old Town Square and Haggard Park, as well as several award-winning restaurants.

Located across the street from a major Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) station, Junction 15 benefits from a close-by convenient transportation option. Not only can Junction 15 residents quickly travel to other parts of the city, but also, anyone in the Dallas area can access the development’s walkable retail hub via the DART’s Downtown Plano Station.

“We are proud of the retail and housing options we’ve provided to the community through our successful partnership with the City of Plano,” said Brian Sewell, Southern Land Company President and Chief Operating Officer. “Junction 15 has bolstered an ongoing public-private initiative to spark downtown Plano’s economy. We are confident that Clarion will be an excellent steward of the property and will carry on our work supporting community growth.”
