Anna of Texas is on its way to becoming a booming city after a sudden increase in population over the last few years according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,

“Anna, which started as a small town along a railroad stop, finds itself in the center of two North Texas growth stories. 

Developers and city officials in Anna have already seen a flood of new residents over the last few years with the rapid growth of Dallas-Fort Worth, especially since the pandemic brought in more residents from out of state and allowed people to work remotely. 

Now they’re expecting even more to come when Texas Instruments and GlobiTech open multibillion-dollar semiconductor projects that are set to bring thousands of jobs to Sherman, about 20 miles north.”

The news on Anna is also affecting the real estate market and officials are expecting new residents according to a Local Profile article. They say.

“The newly acquired attention is affecting the real estate market as well. Anna was known for being one of the more affordable housing markets in Collin County, but that is quickly changing. Pike said they are seeing houses being sold for half-million dollars and some estate-style developments have been popping up.”

City officials are preparing the town for the upcoming residents. Recently, construction on a new city hall was completed and plans to build a new library are on their way.”

Recently, a brand new city hall as well as a library finished construction as part of Anna’s downtown master plan.
