Ever since the opening of the Fort Worth Alliance Airport in 1989, the Alliance corridor along I-35W has seen tremendous growth, particularly over the last several years. With more and more businesses and residents flocking to the area every year, the future of Alliance and North Fort Worth is bright indeed.
The Alliance corridor has been the center of massive growth over the last several years, with the residential population in Tarrant County growing to an estimated 2.11 million in 2020. This growth is due in part to the new developments and favorable business conditions in the area.
A big driver of growth in the area is the Fort Worth Alliance Airport (AFW). As the world’s first completely industrial airport, AFW provides numerous services related to industrial aircraft, whether those are corporate fleets, small prop planes, long range jets, or government craft. It creates the ideal environment for corporations and distribution services to build facilities in the area, creating significant economic opportunity for people and businesses in the region.
AFW is the primary catalyst for the industrial developments in the Alliance corridor, and one of the most important of those developments is the Alliance Global Logistics Hub. This complex is the largest inland port in the U.S., and it serves numerous entities, including:
The area offers unparalleled access to transportation infrastructure, and it serves air, rail, and ground transportation.
Another way the airport has impacted the region is through the development of the Mobility Innovation Zone (MIZ). The MIZ’s unique and innovative infrastructure provides the perfect environment for testing and commercializing aircraft and other vehicles while giving organizations the opportunity to partner with policymakers and other key stakeholders.
All of this industrial development has naturally brought other forms of growth to the area. For instance, the master-planned development AllianceTexas (built by Hillwood) is one of the primary forces for growth in the area in recent years.
In 2020 alone, the economic impact of AllianceTexas totaled to $8.24 billion, which was up from $7.31 billion the year before—an impressive feat, given the circumstances imposed by the global pandemic.
The Alliance Town Center contributes much of that growth. A mixed-use project of retail, medical, residential, entertainment, and offices, Alliance Town Center offers diverse services to visitors and residents alike, including:
An important resource for the 50,000 people who go to their jobs located within five miles of the property each day, the Alliance Town Center continues to be a huge contributor to the boom of the DFW metroplex, the nation’s fourth largest and fastest growing metropolitan area.
With the many shopping and entertainment options nearby and the abundant employment opportunities afforded by the seamlessly integrated industrial complex, now is the perfect time to move to North Fort Worth.
The massive economic impact that AllianceTexas has had is reason enough to move into the area. Its impact on residents and companies alike is substantial, with an estimated $92 billion in economic impact since its foundation.
Corporations from all over the country are recognizing the benefits of settling in the area. Ecommerce and logistics companies see tremendous opportunities for growth and innovation and other companies are drawn by the central location and favorable business conditions. Companies like Facebook, Amazon, Charles Schwab, Stanley Black & Decker, and Callaway have all brought new facilities to the region, and tens of thousands of jobs have been created for area residents.
It’s no wonder the Alliance Corridor and North Ft. Worth areas are considered hot places to live right now. With reasonable housing prices, great schools, and abundant employment opportunities, the area has all the ingredients needed for families to thrive.
