Located within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, the city of Garland is attracting a lot of attention from businesses because of its diverse and highly skilled workforce, excellent quality of life, lower cost of living than neighboring areas, and strategic location.
“Garland is Texas’ 12th-largest city and home to over 247,000 people. We’re also less than 30 minutes away from both the Dallas/Fort Worth and Dallas Love Field airports. Combined with the fact that the city is currently undergoing a lot of redevelopment opportunities, the future of Garland is looking really exciting for both its citizens and businesses,” said Garland Economic Development Director Ayako Schuster.
Garland’s population is projected to double by 2050 and the city’s current commercial and industrial vacancy rate is less than 2%, according to Schuster, who added that the city was expanding its residential, commercial and industrial capacity to meet the growing demand.
“Garland is a great city that can be your home, too. And I want to emphasize the word ‘home.’ We are a big city with a small-town charm. The community here in Garland respects and welcomes all kinds of cultures. We have an ecosystem that actively helps one another and genuinely wants to see everyone succeed. Let’s grow together,” Schuster said.
