The Brazos Valley's location gives companies significant advantages. Unique connectivity to four of the largest metros in the U.S. will place your business in the center of the vast majority of the state's 29 million residents. By 2050, more than 35 million people are projected to live in the Texas Triangle mega-region of Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio and Houston, which also includes Austin. Access to the Port of Houston's global distribution network, rail-served sites and one of the fastest internet highways in the nation with up to 1 gigabit per second download speed make it easy to reach the state, the nation and the world.
