Stimulating Local Economy while delivering Excellence

Posted by Shannon Wiley on Fri, Jan 13, 2017 @ 10:30 AM

The River Point Commerce Center is a large industrial warehouse development in the heart of the Great Southwest Industrial subsection which Cowtown is proud to be a part of.  It is in the process of being rejuvenated by Stream Realty Partners and is comprised
of 602,958 square feet with direct access to the George Bush Turnpike, SH 183, SH 360 and I-30.  To be chosen as the company to produce the 12-foot monument directional sign was a proud moment indeed for Cowtown. Our ties to the GSW industrial district (which is committed to stimulate local economy while maintaining master craftsmanship) as well as the proven customer satisfaction record we presented landed this esteemed job.  Riverpoint needed signage rebranding for this area that is undergoing massive conversion and alteration.  The developers called upon Cowtown to polish the image of this location. The high visibility aspect of this location alone demanded impactful and meticulous signing that capitalized on the prime location of the real estate.  The resulting signage we developed with Stream reality (one of the premier agencies in the area) is one that will be referenced time and time again and we are honored to have our name associated with this venture.

When institutions want to recognize important benefactors, they seek out a company like Cowtown who has vast experience with the challenges projects of the heart bring including greater than normal exacting expectations and strict deadlines.  TCCD campuses once again contracted us to collaborate a tribute to beloved professor and Philanthropist Allan Saxe in the form of a waterfall dedication at the Trinity River Campus; where our philosophy of Listen, Think, solve has never been more evident.  Saxe himself said, “These are my children – waterfalls, endowments, scholarships – those are my children.  Those are strong ideals to measure up to but fall in line with the legacy Cowtown in committed to forge with our body of work. Our team dealt with the challenges of water, curvature and slant of the existing wall, and height like the consummate professionals they have the reputation of being.  Dedication projects are the most endearing form of flattery an institution can bestow in gratitude of trailblazers but awarded to only the most trusted vendors and we are humbled and honored to be included in this monumental dedication.
