The Dallas-Fort Worth metro continues to make headlines as one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas and for its business-friendly environment.
With more than a million more people living in the DFW area today than there were back in 2010, it's safe to say North Texas is booming.
Additionally, there were 400,000 more births than deaths and over 600,000 more people who moved to the metroplex than left over the last eight years. These stats all contributed to an outstanding 16.9 percent population growth in 2018, according to USA Today.
North Texas' Pro-Business Landscape
The DFW metro boasts one of the strongest economies in the nation and a growing labor pool of talented workers, making the area increasingly attractive to not just potential new residents, but also expanding and relocating businesses.
North Texas added nearly 650,000 new jobs since 2010, and only 3.6 percent of metro area workers are unemployed, which is below the 3.9 percent national unemployment rate.
Other factors contributing to the area's pro-business environment include business costs, tax savings, and, perhaps most notably, space.
Local real estate experts explain that DFW boasts hundreds of pockets of empty space between Fort Worth and Dallas. Experts say that once those spots are filled, the region could continue expanding in all directions.
The Midlothian Draw
Conveniently located 30 miles south of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Midlothian is an evolving suburban pearl that consistently attracts residents and businesses alike.
As part of that “promised land” to which businesses continue to flock, Midlothian offers progressive businesses a slice of prime Texas real estate. With wide open stretches of space, convenient logistical assets, and a vast pool of labor, Midlothian is strategically poised for future expansion.
Corporate newcomers include Google, Methodist Health System, and a steady procession of retailers, notably in the new 53-acre Midlothian Towne Crossing development. The city is also home to a sophisticated conference center and adjacent Courtyard by Marriott hotel.
Further, Midlothian’s jump from a population of 17,316 in 2000 to 38,000 in 2018 speaks volumes of its position at the forefront of progress. Homebuilding activity, an expanding school district and a well-travelled welcome mat demonstrate this city’s metamorphosis into a suburban gem.
With major highway access, available land, and city leaders who are pro-business, the thriving community of Midlothian offers a lucrative environment for growth in one of the healthiest economies in the nation.
