Sachse was recently ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in North Texas. The closest city on the list to Dallas, Sachse grew at more than twice the rate of Dallas at 16.5 percent.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the growth of small and medium-size cities across the Dallas region is not slowing.
“We see all of the economic growth in the counties north of Dallas driving the demand for more housing,” said Leslyn Blake, CEO of Sachse Economic Development Corporation. “Housing is hot in Sachse and has been for the past year. It’s common place to receive multiple offers on homes here before they officially list.”
Located at Highway 78, 1.5 miles from the Bush Turnpike, Sachse has a population of 23,000. Once a bedroom community, the booming city now has over 120,000 vehicles a day on the main arteries of Hwy. 78 and the President George Bush Turnpike and more than 7,000 households with an average income of $105,000.
Retail development along Woodbridge Parkway and Highway 78 has been spurred by the Walmart Supercenter, which opened last year, leading the way for more retailers to locate near the well-known anchor. The groundbreaking of the Woodbridge Commons retail development across from Walmart, a newly designed LA Fitness and The Mansions of Woodbridge luxury apartment homes are all underway. Sachse also welcomed Laguna Madre Traders in March and is in talks with several more retail tenants interested in joining the rapidly developing Woodbridge corners.
Along 190, Sachse is investing in the necessary infrastructure to make it shovel ready for the businesses that are buying sites along the frontage. The city has committed funds to have the remaining infrastructure in early next year and ready for a major developer.
A beautification plan is also underway for Highway 78 and the city is looking at possibly rezoning industrial land for a signature development in the heart of the city.
“Sachse is located in a prime location for growth. We are minutes from 75 and the new City Line and State Farm campus. We’re one mile from Firewheel Town Center, and next door neighbors with Richardson. The Bush Turnpike has been a gateway for Sachse and has been the primary contributor to our phenomenal residential growth,” said Blake. “Direct access to major transportation arteries, our abundance of housing opportunities, and the charm of our small town are the reasons I believe that we are experiencing the growth that is garnering national attention.”
The Sachse Economic Development Corporation acts on behalf of the City of Sachse in promoting and developing authorized projects, while supporting economic development activities to retain, expand and attract businesses for the purpose of diversifying the tax base and improving the quality of life of the citizens of Sachse.
