Dallas developer and philanthropist Marcus Hiles is the “subject matter expert” when it comes to the pressing need for new residential developments across the urban areas of Texas. According to recent U.S. Census Bureau figures, the population of the Lone Star State is adding 1,183 residents on a daily basis throughout 2016, an astronomical number. This means that throughout the year, the state welcomed 432,957 residents. Residential starts have failed to keep up, releasing just 30,000 units in 2016. Simple math dictates a severe shortage of available options that could leave approximately 402,957 residents without housing, unless, of course, they have secured a lease with one of the recently completed communities like the luxurious homes built by Hiles’ company, Western Rim, in thriving Texas urban hubs.
