Economic Development News

June 2016

This is the time of year where businesses commence the implementation of their new year strategic plan while also refining it based on their analysis of the previous year-end results. Cities do the same and at the recent Town Hall Forum the 2015 results shared were very positive. A total of 136 businesses opened in the City of Hurst, occupying 346,000 s.f., driving occupancy of the 6,000,000 s.f. of total retail inventory to a significant new high of 94.5% occupied. There has been 14 consecutive months of sales tax increases with the latest month being double digit. In residential real estate, 724 new families moved to Hurst in 2015 representing the highest number in 10 years and one of the highest amongst the 14 mid-cities.
The Hilton Garden Inn broke ground this month on their new six story, 140 room hotel that will attach to the Hurst Conference Center. They will complement the three nearby hotels nicely and will create great synergy allowing greater use of the facilities for more regional conferences needing overnight stays. They hope to open by summer of 2017.
The new Hurst Crossing shopping center opened its first retailers on Hwy 26 as Care Now relocated to their new urgent care center. Chick-fil-A opened last month in their new restaurant with double lane drive thru making it the fourth in Hurst offering their high quality original chicken sandwiches with their equally stellar customer service. Natural Grocers has also started construction on their neighboring 15,000 s.f. natural grocery store that should open in the fall.
