Texas' rapidly increasing population will give the state an economic edge in coming years as the United States wrestles with sluggish growth in both the labor force and productivity, two trends that could weigh on the nation's economic future, said Robert Kaplan, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
Kaplan, in an interview with Houston Chronicle editors and reporters, said the number of people living in Texas has grown from 22.5 million about a decade ago to more than 28 million and could rise above 40 million over the next quarter century, enabling it to outperform the nation as a whole, in coming years, said Kaplan.
Plans are in the works for a $250 million project — a 14-story apartment tower and a six-story office building — that is expected to break ground early next year in North Austin near the Domain.
Capella Capital Partners, an Austin-based commercial real estate development company, said that North Gateway Plaza will be built at 10615 Burnet Road, adjacent to the 24-acre McKalla Place site owned by the city of Austin. McKalla Place is the leading site in contention for Precourt Sports Ventures’ proposed Major League Soccer stadium.

The owners of one of the biggest commercial real estate developments in Montgomery County are gathering information about the market value of their property in a private listing.

The Independent, the tallest residential tower west of the Mississippi River, has topped out in Downtown Austin at 58 stories. The 685-foot condominium project, a joint venture of Aspen Heights Partners and CIM Group, sits at the corner of West Third Street and West Avenue, on the edge of the master-planned Seaholm development. The 1.7-acre site, purchased for $14.5 million, was the site of the city-owned Austin Energy Control Center until it was sold in 2015.

Managing a real estate establishment is no tough feat, but if an entrepreneur is looking to maximize his profit, then he or she will want to add more properties under his or her name. As these establishment owners get more tenants and properties to handle, managing all assets becomes a challenging task. However, it is now made simpler with the help of a technological advancement catering to property management.

Corporate culture is undergoing a few changes — from integrating technology and creating energy-efficient offices to narrowing down the gap between C-level executives and the rest of the employees. This dynamic requires a series of innovations, especially when it comes to office design trends.

Believed to be the largest birth cohort in U.S. history, Generation Z, also referred to as post-millennials, has now breached the boundaries of young adulthood and are starting to strike out on their own. For the oldest, that includes renting their first apartment. And while they currently make up only a small portion of the rental market, Gen Z renters have already gained the attention of property owners eager to attract them as tenants.
Employers are actively working to make the cliche "another cog in the machine" a thing of the past. Their priorities have shifted from treating employees like drones to understanding who they are as people. To achieve this, leaders are focusing on ways to make the workplace more human.
In fact, a January study of 738 HR professionals by the Society for Human Resource Management and Globoforce found that 75 percent of companies examined were actively trying to create positive relationships and teamwork in the office.
