Construction in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has had a very strong showing in recent years.
Healthcare, education, and recently entertainment are all key drivers of the area’s construction market. Statewide, the infrastructure sector is one of the largest. The Texas Triangle is one of the fastest-growing parts of the country. The area is largely flat, and this has allowed these communities to grow outwards rather than upwards. Tying these communities together is a key challenge for state officials.
The entertainment industry has emerged as an important part of the economy in Dallas. The city doesn’t have beaches or mountains nearby, so officials have invested heavily in things like restaurants and shopping spaces in order to bring in residents and tourists. Of the projects expected to cost more than $1 billion, two are convention centers and the rest are upscale resorts and shopping districts.
