Where Does Dallas Stand in Office, Warehouse and Multifamily Construction Today?


North Texas isn’t just hot literally; the commercial real estate industry continues to sizzle across sectors. As we’ve discussed, approximately 360 people are moving to the area each day, and job growth has been strong across the region. This continued surge in jobs, paired with a strong economy, has kept Dallas-Fort Worth real estate construction on a hot streak.

  • Nearly 8 million square feet of office space was under construction in Q2 of this year, with approximately half already leased.
  • Dallas-Fort Worth leads the nation in warehouse construction. There was nearly 21 million square feet under construction at the end of Q2.
