Shop, dine, pamper and more: get to know Alton Town Center

Located in the heart of Palm Beach Gardens is Alton Town Center – not only a TSG client, but a team favorite destination for everything from shopping to dining.

You can find us relaxing at True Rest Float Spa, getting our nails done, grabbing coffee and picking up groceries.

It’s the type of place you make a day of.

VP of Marketing, Lindsay Douglas, graciously sat down with us to paint a full picture of the Alton experience.

Lindsay, responsible for the company’s corporate real estate marketing initiatives and messaging for the United States portfolio, also manages the marketing, promotions, events, social media, and websites for the individual retail projects.

Which is to say, she really has her finger on the pulse!

We’re excited to share our interview with her, here.
