Economic Development News

November 2016

iFly HurstThere are a lot of positives associated with a City experiencing a nationally renowned new business locating within their boundaries. This quarter there were 55 new store openings in Hurst but certainly one of the most outstanding was the opening of the new Ifly Indoor Skydiving. They opened the doors to their new $6M entertainment venue for sky diving thrill seekers of all ages last month. They have locations throughout the world and it is great to see their new Hurst location listed alongside touristy locations like Hollywood, Orlando, San Diego, Chicago, Montreal, Dubai and Singapore. Just as attractive is the actual location they chose, immediately across from North East Mall on N.E. Loop 820 Highway. This area now becomes a Family Entertainment District with Rebounderz Trampoline Arena, Battlefield Frontlines Combat Laser Tag and Putt Putt that is now experiencing an expansion and full remodel, all within 1/2 mile of one another.

The City of Hurst also recently conducted its Hurst Business Appreciation Dinner for all its businesses to recognize local businesses for their hard work as they prepare for the busy Holiday season. Three Hurst businesses received Outstanding Business Awards for the year at the event. Grain & Dairy Gourmet Grilled Cheese Restaurant won for Outstanding New Business. The new Shops at Hurst Shopping Center anchored by the new Walmart Neighborhood Market won for Outstanding Renovation/Remodel. Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant was chosen as the Outstanding Business of the Year.

Through the third quarter existing single family home sales remained brisk as 613 were sold y-t-d to new families moving to Hurst. They were sold quickly also as the average days on market was a mere 22 days and they experienced a 13% increase in average sales price compared to last year at $210,000 per home sold.
