3 Reasons to Choose Houston Capital Home Buyers
Located just outside of Downtown Houston, Sugar Land is populated by well over 100,000 proud Texans. As you might have guessed from the name, Sugar Land was home to one of the states largest sugar plantations that were situated in the fertile lands of the Brazos River. Traditionally home to the workers of the company, the town was incorporated into a city in 1959.
Since then, Sugar Land has proliferated as with many of the areas around Downtown Houston. As one of the most affluent areas in the entire of the state, homes here are typically large and valuable. Sugar Land has seen rapid growth in recent years, both in the size of the population and the number of houses within the area.
Between 2000 and 2007, there was a substantial increase in jobs, with some sources estimating a 46% increase for the period. With that increase in jobs came a higher population and following the annexation of the Greatwood and New Territory areas in late 2017, the population of the city swelled to an estimated 117,869 as of 2018.
The history of Sugar Land is still playing a critical part in the day-to-day runnings to the city even to do this day, with the headquarters of Imperial Sugar being located in the area. This facility used to include their primary sugar refinery and also a large distribution center. The impact of sugar on the area is so significant that the company logo is on the seal of the city and its logo.
Consistently ranked as one of the top cities in Texas for businesses, Sugar Land has attracted many companies away from the bright lights of Downtown Houston out into the Sugar Land area. As with the rest of the state, a large amount of the jobs in the area are centered around the energy industry, particularly in petroleum exploration and refining.
