Why This Matters

Austin is rapidly becoming one of Americas most sought after cities. Dubbed as the #1 place to live in America, more companies are relocating to Austin everyday. In fact we've seen several major tech companies migrate to Austin like Apple, Google, OpenDoor, and more. As Austin continues to attract major companies, we are seeing a ton of growth of Downtown Austin. New and exciting projects like The Independent, The Rainey skyscraper, and Capital City Innovation District are just some of the developments transforming Downtown Austin.   

So what can we expect from the most innovative and popular city in the country? What are the most exciting projects emerging in the growing tech hub? How will the innovation district continue to attract major companies from all over the world? How will the changes in the land development code affect the development process?
