Teso Life, a coveted brand for Japanese lifestyle retail, will open its first store outside New York and fifth in the nation in NewQuest Properties’ Carrollton Town Center in North Dallas. It has signed a long-term lease for 14,236 square feet of retail space at NewQuest’s Carrollton Town Center. The NewQuest team spent nearly three years marketing Texas to Teso Life. Doors will open in early fall.

Teso Life emphasizes Japanese culture and aesthetics, specializing in authentic beauty products, hard-to-find flavors of popular snacks, home goods, and creative merchandise. The diverse lineup is made up of well-established and affordable, quality brands in high demand by Asian communities worldwide.

“To bring Teso Life at this time in the business recovery cycle gives Carrollton Town Center a sense of newness and encourages people to venture out and explore,” says Heather Nguyen, who’s gained prominence in retail brokerage for creating the high-end Asian-influenced lifestyle concept for Houston-based NewQuest Properties. “We traveled to Japan and visited many department stores and retailers. Teso Life’s high-quality products for daily use are a perfect complement for the center, which has been successfully attracting a diversified demographic and new experiences for our audience.”

Carrollton Town Center is 98 percent occupied, with just 3,454 square feet of available space. The project’s second phase is limited to ground-leased pad sites, two of which are already under negotiation.
