Dallas has been on the mark in terms of job growth and affordability, traits that Texas commercial real estate investors search for when looking for their next project. Las Colinas, located in the Dallas suburb of Irving, is bringing in corporations and needed multifamily units at a tremendous rate.
The Texas commercial real estate developers who have already delved into this lucrative market, probably already know about the growing corporate hot spot known as Irving. In particular, Las Colinas, the upscale area in this Dallas suburb that seems to be attracting corporations and encouraging corporate relocations. Its location is part of the draw—located between Dallas and Fort Worth and close to DFW International Airport and DART. Irving is also home to several universities, providing, for those incoming corporations, an educated workforce. Another calling card is simply that the town has made it their mission.
There are several steps that this area has taken in hopes of drawing in big business. This includes offering rich incentives to corporations looking to move and the creation of the Toyota Music Factory to add to its entertainment sector. This entertainment destination consists of an indoor concert hall, outdoor amphitheater, retail, restaurants and a movie theater. According to an article in Bisnow, Parmenter Southwest Region Senior Vice President Josh Hedderich said, “The combination of amenities, affordability and access to the metro sealed the deal in a recent lease his firm negotiated.”
Las Colinas is home to more than 2,000 companies including ExxonMobil, Kimberly-Clark, AT&T, Citigroup and General Motors Financial. Rumor also has it that they are vying for the next headquarters for Amazon—a move that will be providing some fortunate city with 50,000 jobs. About the only criteria they do not fit that Amazon has deemed necessary is its population which doesn’t quite make the million mark. It does, however, rest in the arms of Dallas, a city of close to 4.6 million. As the jobs, people and corporations arrive, this town of 85,000-plus is continuing to see an increasing demand for multifamily units.
