A Note From Mike Berry

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to share with you the inaugural issue of AllianceTexas Connect, which will serve as Hillwood’s quarterly e-newsletter highlighting significant activities happening within our AllianceTexas development. We hope you enjoy hearing the great news we have to share about our community and partners, while showcasing all that makes our region so special!

Leading off, we’re excited to announce that AllianceTexas has now eclipsed $100 billion in economic impact for the North Texas region, which includes more than $3 billion in paid taxes to the surrounding government entities. While it’s a remarkable story for Hillwood, it’s really a collective story of the power of partnerships between the private and public sector. At a time when the national news cycle tells us of all of the uncertainties in the world, these numbers remind us of what is possible when everyone is rowing in the same direction.

Our focus on partnership was the underlying theme of the recent Forward Fort Worth summit we hosted in March, which brought together nearly 200 leading innovators from the mobility and supply chain technology industry. We’re at a critical juncture in the evolution of the supply chain, brought about by the challenges of the pandemic and recent world events. We’re seeing North Texas emerging as the unrivaled leader in the commercialization of these technologies, and Hillwood is leveraging our partnerships to ensure the next technology revolution will be centered right here in our region.

As we head toward the summer months, we’re excited about all of the construction activity underway, including the new rare earth magnet manufacturing facility that MP Materials will open next year. We’ve got a lot of great news in the works, so look for the next issue of AllianceTexas Connect to hit your inbox soon!
