An Instagram you’ll want to follow if you like knowing about East Dallas development

Development in East Dallas is often hotly debated, as neighbors here are dedicated to preserving our historic charm. The term “developer” can sound like a dirty word in some circles, leading many companies to play their hands close to the vest as they plan their projects.

EKO Construction is taking a somewhat different approach, with an Instagram account that shows a lot of the company’s thought process and even asks for neighborhood feedback on projects.

The business, led by Brad Winters with Miles Durham (who we profiled last year) is building dozens of properties all over the city, including the new roughly 150 townhomes to be built near Jimmy’s Food Store.

EKO Construction asked for opinion on color choices, with neighbors overwhelmingly preferring white.
