DALLAS-FORT WORTH - Nearly $8 billion in construction projects have gone out to bid in North Texas in first half 2015.

That puts the region more than $2 billion — or 32 percent — ahead of last year’s pace, according to BidClerk, a Chicago-based provider of construction data.

Through June, more than 2,100 projects went out for bid in Dallas-Fort Worth, with about one-third totaling more than $1 million. That compares with 1,461 projects in first half 2014.

Here are some of the big-ticket projects seeking bids this year:

  • Harmony Hill, a $70 million, 648-unit apartment community in Rowlett.
  • Aloft Hotel near Love Field in Dallas, a $45 million project to build an eight-story, 244-room hotel.
