Justin is facing rapid residential growth which will set the City up for great future retail opportunities.  Ample space is still available for residential and commercial development, including properties along the FM 156 and FM 407 corridors. Over 1,800 homes/dwelling units are currently in the planning or platting phases with several subdivisions actively building homes with price points between the mid $200s and upper $400s. Timberbrook, the City’s largest planned development, is under construction now with home sites, amenity centers, hike and bike trails, and a dog park coming in soon.  A large lot alternative is available in Legacy Ranch subdivision, and a 300-unit multi-family complex, The Villages at Reatta, has also broken ground.  

With construction of the improved and expanded FM 156 roadway through the City, we anticipate significant interest in new commercial development and revitalization of existing businesses. This project spans over four miles from SH-114 north to Justin and is anticipated to complete in late 2019. Along with the construction of FM 156, the City will install a new downtown parking area creating over 200 spaces to accommodate businesses in the Old Town district.

Justin is strategically located at the intersection of FM 407 and FM 156, four miles north of SH-114 and just minutes away from the GE Locomotive Plant and Texas Motor Speedway. The BNSF Railroad, which was a key to the early success of the City, still comes through the heart of Justin today.

Justin is a friendly community known for western appeal and small town charm, and is often referred to as the boot capital of the western world. Justin offers a rural landscape, significant park space for residents to enjoy as well as unique shopping and dining experiences. 

The growth around IH-35W north has been incredible to say the least, and there is no denying the prosperity headed to Justin! The City’s population will more than double in less than 10 years, and we are taking steps now to ensure we don’t lose the small town rural charm as Justin grows.

Justin is committed to quality development and continues to provide excellent public service to businesses and residents. The City has been working hard to prepare itself for this significant population growth and is currently undertaking many infrastructure improvements throughout the city in order to ensure sustainability citywide. The Justin City Council is committed to promoting a sustainable community through the implementation of forward-thinking policies and programs. Special attention is focused on ensuring that Justin’s quality of life is not only enjoyed by today’s residents, but guaranteed for future generations to come.
