S. Texan invests in development of retail shopping center

When Jason Mittman first visited Tyler six months ago, he was “blown away” by the city.

Mittman, of San Marcos, is a commercial developer who buys and renovates shopping centers all over Texas. He has invested in the Southpoint Plaza retail center, near the intersection of Troup Highway and Shiloh Road.

Mittman, 44, said he loved Tyler when he first saw it because it had a clean, proud and nice feel to it. He said he was impressed with shopping centers here.
