As general contractor, Bob Moore Construction designed the building together with Skyhawk Partners’ selected architect, Alliance Architects.

“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.”

The property, purchased in partnership by Peter Billipp of Skyhawk Partners and Andy Billipp and Mark Witte of J.A. Billipp Co., was selected for its location, accessibility and visibility, the developers said.

“It had the features we felt were important,” said Peter Billipp, managing director of Skyhawk Partners. “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.”
