ARLINGTON, TEXAS – January 8, 2018 – Bob Moore Construction has announced that they have finalized construction on the new Interpoint Distribution Center in Wilmer, Texas, for Houston-based Skyhawk Partners.
Now complete and available for lease through Colliers International, the new distribution center provides 350,000 square feet of distribution space, with frontage along Interstate 45 and located within 15 miles of downtown Dallas.
“The building looks fantastic,” said Peter Billipp, Managing Director of Skyhawk Partners. “It is a Class-A, high-quality distribution building in a world-class market. I feel confident that we exceeded our criteria across the board. The feedback we’ve received from the marketplace has been excellent.”
As general contractor for the large-scale commercial project, Bob Moore Construction—together with Skyhawk Partners’ selected architect Alliance Architects—designed the building with an eye for unmatched quality and cost savings.
“We worked closely with Skyhawk Partners to make sure that we knew exactly what they wanted,” said Larry Knox, Executive Vice President for Bob Moore Construction. “This helped us identify several opportunities to deliver significant cost savings to Skyhawk Partners.”
“Bob Moore Construction differentiated itself in terms of cost and awareness of the scope of work,” added Mr. Billipp. “We appreciated the effort they put in. They asked a lot of questions, digging deeper to really understand what our project would need. That gave us some comfort that there wouldn’t be issues downstream while we were under construction.”
The property, purchased in partnership by Peter Billipp of Skyhawk Partners and Andy Billipp and Mark Witte of J.A. Billipp Company, had been selected for its superb location, accessibility and high-profile visibility, the developers said.
“It had the features we felt were important,” Mr. Billipp said. “It was just across the highway from the Union Pacific Intermodal, an economic engine for South Dallas; it had great visibility from Interstate 45 and great ingress and egress to the freeway; and it’s in close proximity to some great corporations like Federal Express, Procter & Gamble, Amazon, Shippers Warehouse and more.”
Of the project, Mr. Billipp expressed every confidence in their chosen general contractor.
“I felt great about working with Bob Moore Construction,” he said. “The entire construction team was very professional and responsive. They were service-oriented and value-conscious, and I definitely appreciated their style of work. They understood what we needed and they did what they said they would do—they’re a professionally run general contractor with genuine integrity.”
“It’s always a pleasure to work with experienced developers like Peter Billipp, Andy Billipp and Mark Witte,” Mr. Knox said. “This was our first collaboration with Skyhawk Partners but their knowledge and experience helped to make this project run like we’ve worked together for years. We look forward to bringing more value to Skyhawk Partners on other projects in the future.”
Interpoint Distribution Center is located at 3800 N. Interstate 45, Wilmer, TX 75172. For more information about leasing opportunities, contact Colliers International at 214-692-1100 or visit Skyhawk Partners at skyhawkpartners.com.
