The fate of Springtown Center took a new twist last month, when Dayton Hudson Corporation sold the Target store building that lies in the largely abandoned retail complex near the Interstate-35 gateway to interior San Marcos.
The new owner of the Target parcel is 1180 Thorpe, Ltd., a limited partnership, according to the Texas Secretary of State’s office. The managers of the general partnership, 1180 Thorpe GP, LLC, are Edward S. Butler and John C. Lewis.
Butler is the son of Roy Butler, the former Austin mayor who succeeded in a wide variety of businesses and died in November 2009, age 83, after a fall.
