The Great Dallas Boom

Real estate has forever been a huge part of Dallas (and Texas) culture.

But these days, development is shifting towards startup and technology ecosystems. From multiple coworking spaces to buildings like 211 North Ervay – which house Fork Work, LAUNCH DFW, Tech and Health Wildcatters, Velocis and more – developers are aiding in the community’s growth and momentum.

This Thursday, The Berkshire and Transwestern are sponsoring the DFW Construction & Development Summit, which will address “the hottest new projects and redevelopments across Dallas.”

Says organizer BisNow, “We have assembled the innovators behind the City’s major office & multifamily developments, as well as those who are transforming historic Dallas buildings such as 500 S. Ervay St. Join Bisnow as we will take a look at the impactful and  monumental projects under way, along with diving into the trends, opportunities, and challenges that the most active developers in the market are seeing and experiencing.”

Earlier this year, Dallas was named by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as one of the top cities where “entrepreneurs and small businesses can expect a welcoming business environment.” It’s hard to believe 2014 is almost over, but 2015 promises to be a major year for growth in real estate and startups!

To hear how Dallas will be a part of the action, check out the summit on Thursday morning.
