Fulshear Named Fastest Growing City in Texas

Cross Creek Ranch - Fulshear Named Fastest Growing City in Texas

January 06, 2021

It’s official. Fulshear is the fastest-growing city in Texas and we at Cross Creek Ranch are happy to have helped.

According to the 2020 U.S. Census, Fulshear ranked the No. 1 fastest-growing city in the state. The information was published last month through the American Community Survey, a division of the Census Bureau responsible for disseminating the information.

This is the second year Fulshear has taken the top spot and the city isn’t finished growing yet. City demographics show that the population has risen from 1,134 people 10 years ago to more than 16,000 today.

As one of the top-selling communities in the nation, Cross Creek Ranch has contributed to the phenomenal growth of Fulshear. The first homes in Cross Creek Ranch were sold in 2008. More than a decade later, 4,200+ families call our 3,200-acre community home. Last year, builders sold 510 new homes. Those sales propelled Cross Creek Ranch to No. 36 on two lists of the nation’s 50 top-selling master-planned communities compiled by Robert Charles Lesser & Co and John Burns Real Estate Consulting.

Families are drawn to Fulshear and Cross Creek Ranch because there is something for everyone.

Fulshear offers a charming historical district and a vibrant commercial one. Fulshear’s location makes it easy to commute to major employers along the Energy Corridor and Fort Bend County’s many attractions. The city is zoned to two award-winning school districts — Katy ISD and Lamar CISD — so young scholars get the tools they need for future success.

Cross Creek Ranch offers even more including multiple opportunities to interact with nature, including traversing more than 30 miles of hike-and-bike trails, kayaking on the lake or observing birds and wildlife from the boardwalk surrounding the 50-acre Polishing Pond. Active adults can live it up in Bonterra, our 55+ resort-style enclave.

We also boast three recreation complexes with pools, a dog park, fitness center, Italian Maid Café, multiple parks and playgrounds.

Like we said, something for everyone. Want to get on the fast track to making your home in the fastest growing city in the state? Visit us today.
