Williamson County Growth Summit: Leander's enormous growth allows leaders to be picky

Article excerpts below:

The city, north of Cedar Park on the west side of Williamson County, reached an estimated population of 68,583 in 2019. That was up 12% from the year prior, the fastest growth in the United States among cities with at least 50,000 residents, according to the Census Bureau.
The Cedar Park/Leander East submarket had 1,467 housing starts through the third quarter of this year, according to data from Zonda, formerly known as Metrostudy. That ranked No. 4 in the Austin area. And the Cedar Park/Leander West submarket recorded 1,238 starts in the same period.
Work started in March on Northline, a district that would combine 700,000 square feet of office space, 300,000 square feet of retail, 150,000 square feet of hotel space, 2,000 apartments and 300 townhomes with community features like a town square and parks. It is off San Gabriel Parkway, between US 183 and the 183A toll road.
“Our school district is just off-the-charts great,” Goodman said of Leander's allure. “Our housing stock is still relatively affordable for the Austin area and the quality is great. We’re still strategically positioned with the tollway to get into Austin pretty quickly.”


@Vik J. this article was focused on this specific region within Williamson County, they also did an article pieces on the North East side highlighting Round Rock, another for Georgetown, and also for Cedar Park.  Too much development going on the North side of Austin for a single article I suppose
