In 1908, young Tom Semos arrived in the United States from his native Greece with dreams of opportunity and a better life. He went on to own several successful restaurants. In 1945, he started Semos & Co. to build and manage buildings. Since that time, the company has continued to build and renovate warehouse and retail properties in Dallas and Ft. Worth. We still own many of the properties that we built in the late forties and early fifties in the boom that followed World War II.
Our activities include developing retail and warehouse properties. We have developed and renovated apartments as well as mixed-use properties. In the eighties, we were instrumental in the establishment of the Bishop Street Arts District in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas. Our specific efforts influenced the city to develop and adopt the Mixed Use Conservation District zoning there. We restored a number of the old houses there to their original Prairie and Craftsman styles.
Since many of our properties are old, we have concentrated these last few years on renovating them for the 21st Century. We believe that the older a building , the better physical condition it should be in , and, the more profitable it should be.
Our real estate brokerage activity is focused on Dallas commercial real estate. We have done extensive work in the East Dallas and Oak Cliff neighborhoods as well as Downtown Dallas. Assembling sites in these areas is a major part of our work.
