Galleria Dallas
The Galleria Dallas, an upscale shopping mall and mixed-use development located in north Dallas, Texas ( USA), was developed by long time owner Hines Interests in 1982. The mall is modeled after a similar Hines development, the Houston Galleria, which opened in 1970. Both Galleria malls have an ice skating rink and a glass vaulted ceiling that is modeled after the historic Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy. Today there are over 200 stores and restaurants including an ice rink and The Westin Galleria Hotel. The Dallas Galleria is located at the intersection of Interstate 635 and the Dallas North Tollway. The property is currently owned by an investment consortium advised by UBS Realty Investors LLC, a subsidiary of UBS AG of Zurich, Switzerland and was managed by General Growth Properties of Chicago, Illinois. Due to the bankruptcy of General Growth, Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group (who also owns The Galleria in Houston, Texas) assumed management of the mall, starting August 23, 2009.
