Irving, TX Economic Overview

Location Photo

Irving is a bubbling youthful city of just over 200,000 people, which is conveniently located at the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) metroplex. Irving grew alongside a railroad originally built to link the two cities. Founded by Otis Brown and J.O. Schultz in 1903, the city was incorporated in 1914, with Mr. Brown serving as its first mayor.

As a city, Irving had a slow start, tethered on agriculture and cotton trade. It was until the 1930s when manufacturing companies started setting up shop in the area that it really thrived. Irving is now a proud host of several Fortune 500 companies and a destination of choice for 3 million visitors every year. Anyone looking for a great place to live or work will find a great home in Irving.

Irving’s economic environment is always welcoming to new ideas. Just recently, it was named by American Express as the third city with the most startups per capita. It has global access, a flourishing business community, and a topnotch entertainment industry.

It is home to approximately 50 Fortune 500 companies, 5 of which have their headquarters there: ExonnMobil, Celanese, Fluor, Commercial Metals and Kimberly-Clark.

Irving, TX Commercial Real Estate Market

Backed by a strong economy and a promising job market, the Irving commercial real estate scene is firing on all cylinders. Rising construction costs may drive rental rates for new spaces even higher. Irving office vacancy rates rose to 12.4% in the first quarter of 2017, from the 12.2% of the last quarter of 2016. This increase was attributed to more office space going online. In fact, the net absorption in 2017 was close to 3 times the net absorption in the previous quarter.

Las Colinas commercial real estate saw 920,000 square feet of office space absorbed in the first quarter of 2017. The average gross asking rents in the DFW area office market rose to $24.88 at the start of the year.

High demand for commercial spaces in the Dallas-Fort Worth Mid Cities area cuts across the board, as the absorption rates in industrial spaces observed in 2015 and 2016 were unprecedented. The overall vacancy rate in the area is the lowest in the decade and stood at 6.6% in the last quarter of 2016.
