Economic Development News - February 2015

This time last year economists all across Texas were telling the general population that 2014 had all the signs to possibly be the best year in a decade in terms of economic performance. More Texans were working than had been in years,they had less debt, more spendable income and greater wealth than they had enjoyed in recent memory and they felt good about spending it as consumer confidence was very high. It seems they were right! With a strong start on 2015 and the results of 2014 to look at, we know it has been a great 12 months in our area.

124 new or newly expanded businesses opened in Hurst during that time. These new businesses occupied more space than any year since 2006 as they comprised 487,000 sq. ft. This drove the retail occupancy percentage to 94.5%; higher than it's ever been! Office space occupancy reached 87%, ahead of the metroplex average and 630 new families moved to Hurst as they purchased new , existing single family residences over the past 12 months. Over $20M was spent in new commercial construction.

The list of exciting new businesses includes stores like Sprouts Farmers Market, Burke's Outlet, Pets Supermarket, Bar Louie's, Rue 21 and White House Black Market. 2015 is off to a similar strong start as there are presently six significant projects under new construction. Just recently completed was the building of the new Schlotsky's Restaurant on Hwy 26. They compliment well the other 11 new restaurants that opened in Hurst in 2014.
