Grand Village Shops Sold

Grand Village Shops were recently sold by Herschend to a private investor group. (For some reason I thought Herschend sold the center when they sold the Grand Palace).

The private investor group also bought 10 adjacent acres.

More details in this article from Branson Tri-Lakes:

http://bransontrilakesnews.com/news_...919a6ad35.html

The article says the center is 100% occupied.

The company's headquarters are in Atlanta. They may be native to Branson, but are no longer a Branson company. I still think they do a darned good job at what they do, and running a shopping center does seem a little bit outside their core entertainment business.

I had the same thought when I read that.... some memory of the SDC people already having sold the Village, did a google search and according to this wiki article on SDC - Herschend history they sold the Village back in 2005. it doesn't say who they sold it to.

Thank you for verifying that there was a previous sale. Wonder if it reverted back to Herschend due to some economic difficulties?

I asked a company who leases a lot of the grand village out and said HFE sold the Grand Village in 2005 to HCW Development.

Wonder why there was no quote from a rep from HCW then instead of Brad Thomas?

(Now, there's someone who fell out of favor fast and hard.)

Here's a nice history of HFE:

& yes, who The Grand Village Shops was sold to in 2005, and why HFE appears to have still been the owner, seems to be a deep, dark mystery, hidden even from google.

There is just one very brief mention of the sale (I thought it was sold type of comment) on this forum.
I'm thinking the Grand Palace remained in HFE's Ownership until the Rockettes bailed out of Branson, which was much later than 1996.

Here's the latest "update" from Branson Tri-Lakes -- now the article says that
Green Courte Partners sold Grand Village to the new owners.
