DALLAS - Construction is underway on converting a historic Deep Ellum building known as the Bomb Factory into a working live music venue that will be the largest in the neighborhood.
The 48,000-sf venue on Canton St. outside of downtown Dallas is expected to open in March after more than a year of development planning.
The early 20th century building was originally used as an automotive plant and then an ammunition factory during World War II. In the following decades, the building was subdivided to accommodate smaller tenants and has primarily been vacant since the early 2000s.
The entire historic Deep Ellum neighborhood has been undergoing a transformation in recent years as landlords and developers invest capital in aging buildings to update them for a new generation of young professionals and artists.
After the project is completed in March, the Bomb Factory will have the ability to entertain nearly 3,000 people.
