The commercial industry throughout the state of Texas has seen growing interest from globally recognized organizations among the world’s leading markets. Tech and industrial sectors, hospitality, manufacturing and energy industries are among those growing their roots in the nation’s second largest state that offers some of the best in vast land mass, talented workforce, affordability and business friendly regulations.
A unique environment where a collective group of diverse companies, populations and communities can come together to create opportunities and success at scale, the state has positioned itself in a way that has attracted organizations such as AT&T, Dell and Southwest Airlines.
Fortune’s 64th annual report released late this May sees the state as owning the third largest sector nationwide for Fortune 500 Company headquarters. The businesses on this list are those leading the economy and operating at a rate that produces 2/3rds the United States GDP. With nearly $13 trillion in revenue combined, Fortune describes this elite group as the most important engine of both US and global economies.
Holding 48 of the 500 firms on Fortune’s list, it is no surprise the overall Texas economy has continued to grow steadily each year in part from these companies that are each pulling in a minimum of $5.4 billion in revenues.
“The benefits that have come to the Texas area through this level of mass business operations has also commercially impacted other areas. Small business and startup communities, business infrastructure industries such as data centers as well as the migration of out of state and international employees coming for job opportunities,” shares DFW-based entrepreneur Marcus Hiles, who has seen a growing demand in his rental properties from this commercial boom.
Sophisticated outdoor designs that are suitable to maintain and reasonable are the latest in architectural advancement. Marcus Hiles has seen the development in demand for open-air spaces that are sustainable while also being inexpensive. Environmental and conservation options such as rainwater/graywater harvesting and permeable pavement are methods followed most often. Using rooftop collection methodology, rainwater harvesting channels liquid from the air for storage in a well to be disinfected and reused on-site. Graywater makes use of household wastewater and sends it to toilets and non-drinking purposes, dropping fresh water needs and preserving resources on purification. A clever idea for environmentally minded construction, permeable paving, goes back to thousands of years to an era when people first built roads by putting stones in beds over the ground. The technique allows the rain to pass through small openings among four layers of filtration (paving material, gravel, fabric, sand) prior to getting absorbed by the ground under. Its benefits include lowering runoff and pollution, constraining the flow of storm water to gutters and drains, replenishing local groundwater supplies and offering a skid resistant surface for walkways, patios and driveways; their various beautiful patterns often feature crushed stone, brick, and recycled concrete.

San Antonio’s The Estates at Briggs Ranch offers keen attention to detail, featuring pendant lighting, crown molding, and garden tubs in each apartment. Offering golf privileges and breathtaking golf views, Briggs Ranch is also appealing to golfers of all abilities. The Grand Estates in the Forest, situated north of Houston in Conroe, epitomizes the crème de la crème of rental life, as residents enjoy blooming green spaces that adjoin the W.G. Jones State Forest, nearby golf courses, and lavish parks. “Residents appreciate the availability of a gourmet summer kitchen featuring farm fresh produce, as well as an expert personal trainer available to guide them to fitness,” explains Marcus Hiles. Across town in Magnolia, The Estates Woodland delivers lavishly appointed apartments fitted with oversized covered balconies and spacious walk-in pantries. Little ones enjoy the vast on-site central park and children’s activity area, and the community also hosts an extensive network of trails for jogging.
Why the preference for renting over holding a mortgage? Marcus Hiles explains that, in Texas and across the United States, people love the flexibility that the rental lifestyle affords. “We’re a mobile population,” he exclaims. “The idea of settling in one place for a decade – or for the length of a 30-year mortgage – doesn’t hold the same appeal as it did a generation or two ago.” Proving that homeowners do not have an edge when it comes to personal fulfillment, Hiles looks to research proving that renters come out on top. “People who rent actually spend more time engaging in leisure activities and interacting with their friends and neighbors,” Hiles says.
Real estate agencies and companies in charge of strategic development often overlook the importance of nature when planning housing projects and don’t use the advantages trees and vegetation have to offer. However. In Western Rim Properties, trees and vegetation play a key role which consequently brings the lowest housing density among all competition. Hiles thinks that by providing more open green spaces and parks, he creates a safer and less polluted environment where renters will have multiple use of trees, vegetation and nature in general.

Urban parks and wilderness environments boost the health and well-being of those who live nearby and are fundamental function for strengthening American cities. The U.S. Centre for Disease Control (CDC) has shown an exciting and positive correlation between access to community areas and the chances of someone choosing to exercise. Having open recreation space near where people live encourages exercise, fellowship and fun. Parks often serve as the unique hub of a city and are an investment in the development of the neighborhood. Knowing the significance of public space for leisure and enjoyment of nature, Marcus Hiles has allowed for the transformation of multiple Texas cities through his generous gift. Inspired to deliver amazing places to live, these community parks are a crucial part of his vision. His mandate for sustainable business extends throughout his company that annually plants trees for canopy. Neighborhoods with nearby green space, surrounded by living things, vegetation and wildlife are healthier, friendlier, more inviting and successful.
Residential areas close to a community park or recreational areas are more likely healthier, more environment-friendly, and more inviting. Areas where people interact with each other and do physical activities help in improving the lifestyle of residents in American cities, thus creating a conducive society for its people. A community with a park and wilderness environment has a better shot at rapid growth. A study from the U.S. Centre for Disease Control (CDC) shows that having access to community areas helps inspire the community to engage in exercise and other outdoor activities with their neighbors. For this reason, Marcus Hiles donated parks for the cities of Texas in hopes they will create a more fun environment and help each city become prosperous. He dreams of creating ideal residential buildings in which parks are the center of the community’s growth. The companies he owns also advocate eco-friendly drives such as planting thousands of trees to rehabilitate the environment and make sure that every living space is close to nature.
