General Contractor’s Focus: Dallas


For several years, Dallas and the surrounding area has been one of the nation’s leading hotbeds for real estate development and construction. Last summer, the Dallas Morning News reported that the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex was second in the nation just behind New York City in both commercial construction and residential construction, although the number of new construction projects had declined somewhat. But most experts agree that construction and real estate in the region is expected to stay strong and to continue leading the nation in the years to come.

Bob Moore Construction has been a leading construction company in the Dallas-Fort Worth region since 1946. Based centrally in the metroplex in Arlington, Bob Moore Construction serves as general contractor and design-build contractor on projects throughout the Dallas area, Texas, and the entire United States.

Dallas Retail Construction: Arboretum Village

The Arboretum Village shopping plaza is an 80,000 SF multi-tenant retail location in Dallas. Built to accommodate up to eight separate stores, the Arboretum Village plaza is a complete renovation and rebuild of an existing multi-use building constructed in the late 1960s. The new plaza includes three anchor stores – The Fresh Market, PetSmart and Ace Hardware – which were finished out by other contractors as our work was being completed.

As part of the renovation required the removal of the front wall and the first 80 feet from the existing building to bring the structure into the design standards preferred by modern retailers. The project also included the removal of interior walls and the existing roof and a complete restoration and refinish of the existing side and back walls.

Arboretum Village won the Dallas Business Journal’s Best Real Estate Deal Award for Retail/Restaurant category in 2016.
