South Dallas Ready for the Spotlight
Southern Dallas is bigger than Atlanta, but developers are just starting to recognize its opportunities as revitalization efforts take off. That’s why we’re excited to hear from the experts about the future of this city-sized submarket at Bisnow's The Rise of South Dallas County event on Nov. 25 (8am) at the Sheraton Dallas.
Southern Dallas County is an underserved community, says Corinth Properties EVP Terrence Maiden. He sees unique use development opportunities to bring some of the daily-need services to the community. Plus, there’s an advantage to developing there because of the lack of competition, he says. The challenge is convincing some retailers and grocery stores that they can operate successfullyand be profitable within these areas. The reality is, there are many residential pockets with great population density and solid incomes, Terrence says.
