    The Greater Austin Region has seen significant growth to the East, and the SH-130 corridor has created a new economic driver in areas that historically have attracted limited investor interest. Now, with several major employers moving into the area, and new housing being continually added, communities from Lockhart to Taylor are capturing extraordinary investments from major domestic and international firms. With accelerating growth east of Austin, these areas are becoming more dynamic with each new project. Join ULI Austin for our October regional luncheon to learn more about what opportunities, challenges and visions are converging as the path of growth heads East.
