Meet the Largest Employers in Sugar Land
The sugar industry transformed the sleepy community of Sugar Land into one of the fastest-growing areas of Houston, attracting Fortune 500 investment and so many residents it’s running out of houses.
Across the U.S., more and more corporations are moving to livable centers that feature a high quality of life, and Sugar Land is a prime example of that.
Sugar Land is home to some of the fastest-growing master-planned communities in the U.S., and as the population continues to grow, so does the medical community that serves it. Two of Sugar Land’s largest employers — Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land — both have major expansion projects in the works.
Houston Business Journal explored the development boom in Sugar Land, which is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the country, and the opposition from some residents to all the multifamily projects, in our April 4 edition.
