The Projects That Have Turned Dallas Into a Core Primary Market


Once viewed as a volatile secondary market, Dallas has rather quickly changed the opinions of investors and proved itself to be one of the top five most promising markets for commercial real estateinvestment. While the Dallas of decades past was seen as a place of overbuilding, high vacancy and low rents, many attribute today’s rise and attraction to:

  1. Large job growth
  2. Population growth
  3. Low cost of living
  4. Business-friendly environment
  5. Access to space
  6. Access to talent
  7. Transformational developments

Bisnow identifies the six projects over the last 10 years that have turned Dallas into the city it is today:

  1. The Joule (2009, 2012)
  2. Klyde Warren Park (2012)
  3. State Farm Relocation (2013)
  4. Dallas Farmers Market (2013)
  5. Toyota Relocation (2015)
  6. Dale of 2000 McKinney (2015)

Are you familiar with any or all of these real estatestories? Read about each project in more depth here. Experts agree that Dallas “is slated for greatness,” but must weather another downturn, add more iconic architecture and improve public school education before we reach that level.
