Arboretum Village Retail Complex Wins “Best Real Estate Deals – Retail / Restaurant” Award From Dallas Business Journal

80,000 SF Dallas Multi-Tenant Retail Property Built by Bob Moore Construction Wins Top Honors in 23rd Annual Dallas Business Journal Competition

Bob Moore Construction reached a major  milestone of construction when they completed structural work and began  interior finish-out for Legacy VI and VII. When finished, Legacy VI and VII  will deliver 245,508 of new high end, speculative office space in a 24-acre,  three-building campus.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS - April 30, 2015 - The Arboretum Village has won the Dallas Business Journal’s “Best Real Estate Deal” Award (retail / restaurant category).

Bob Moore Construction was the general contractor for Arboretum Village, an 80,000 SF multi-tenant retail location in Dallas owned by Lincoln Property Company. Built to accommodate up to ten separate stores, the Arboretum Village plaza is a complete renovation and rebuild of an existing multi-use structure constructed in the late 1960s.

The Arboretum Village is built with a blend of brick and CMU walls, which were left from the existing building, and new tilt-up construction for the front face of the building.

Work included demolishing the front 80 feet of the building, stripping the interior to structural level, restoring and refinishing the remaining walls and rebuilding and finishing the front wall. The tiltwall panels across the front were created with varying heights and finished with combinations of stone, plaster EIFS, paint and metal canopies to present eight different design patterns that help to delineate the various stores.

The project included the complete removal of the existing parking lot, which was replaced with 250,000 SF of new parking lots and drive lanes around the building.

The new plaza includes three anchor stores – The Fresh Market, PetSmart and Lakewood Ace Hardware, along with other retail outlets.

“We are very proud that Arboretum Village was recognized with this award,” said Kyle Whitesell, Executive Vice President for Bob Moore Construction. “This award from the Dallas Business Journal recognizes not only the quality of the building but its importance and value to the local community and the city of Dallas as well. Lincoln Property Company was able to repurpose this building to offer better retail opportunities and several new jobs to east Dallas.

“Congratulations to Lincoln Property Company and everyone associated with the project,” added Mr. Whitesell. “Arboretum Village is deserving of this recognition for its impact on the economic revitalization of east Dallas, and we’re pleased to have been a part in making that happen.”
