Williamson's ECD pipeline full

Matt Largen, the economic development director of Williamson County, says his team are talking to companies who could relocate more than 8,000 jobs here and invest some $300 million. That potential cornucopia comes with a challenge.

While some space still exists for building new office buildings, Largen said many prospects are on a fast track and want something available immediately or very quickly and that is where the county has a shortfall. While some space might exist in Brentwood’s Maryland Farms office park, some of the buildings cannot meet the demands of high-tech companies making the move to the area, Largen said.
