SKIN PHARM OPENING IN DALLAS – In a prestigious win for the Uptown/Turtle Creek office market, Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services' new client, Skin Pharm TX LLC, has committed to a 10-year lease in a premier 13-story high rise to open its first cosmetic dermatology clinic in Texas and third in the nation.
The skincare company, with a growing celebrity following, will open a well-appointed clinic Monday on the sixth floor of 3131 Turtle Creek Blvd. Jared Laake, vice president of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services, is representing Skin Pharm in its hunt to expand the brand's presence in the U.S.
The 3,655-sf clinic will feature six examination rooms, all with commanding views of Turtle Creek and Dallas' dynamic central business district. With the help of Nashville-based designer Lori Paranjape, the space feels elevated, comfortable and cool. MAPP Construction of Dallas was the general contractor.
"It's all about the feel of being in the space," Laake says. "We toured 15 buildings and selected 3131 Turtle Creek for its spectacular views and quality space."
The 145,896-sf class A project is located at the apex of Uptown and Turtle Creek, which along with neighboring Oak Lawn, are among the most affluent enclaves in Dallas' center city. Trey Smith of Cushman & Wakefield of Texas Inc. represented the landlord, STRS Ohio TX Real Estate Investments Inc.
Founded by nurse practitioner Maegan Griffin, Skin Pharm launched in 2017 with its flagship Nashville clinic and expanded to Atlanta before coming to Dallas. "Skin Pharm has strong followings on social media and good ordering histories in the cities it is selecting for clinics. It's a proven expansion model," Laake says.
Two physician assistants with backgrounds in cosmetic dermatology have been hired as providers for the Dallas clinic, which will offer a full-treatment menu in addition to Skin Pharm's entire line of medical-grade skincare products – best-sellers include Youth Serum, Clarifying Pads and Clay Time. Along with features in a number of notable outlets (SHAPE, Glamour and Byrdie), Skin Pharm has an impressive celebrity following, which includes country music star Kelsea Ballernini, actress Katie Stevens, American model Taylor Hill and realty TV star Lauren Lane.
