What we reported

In 2016 the U.S. Census Bureau named the city of Georgetown the fastest-growing city in the U.S. of at least 50,000. With the area continuing to experience growth, several development and retail projects are ongoing, including Saddlecreek, a 353-acre project in southeast Georgetown, and Wolf Ranch, a 755-acre community near Hwy. 29. The addition of The Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel and Conference Center in July also helps position Georgetown as a destination for conferences and tourism.

Development continues at The Summit at Rivery Park, Georgetown’s first high-end, mixed-use development. The 32-acre space located near The Sheraton will feature businesses such as Woops Bakeshop and The Woodhouse Spa.
