Continuing on a theme from yesterday's post, here are more articles from today's Austin American-Statesman:
•· More investment in the local office market - Spear Street buys lone University Park office building
•· Expansion of an existing employer - AT&T adding space, employees in Austin
•· More high tech expansion - 1,000 eBay jobs proposed for Austin
•· New investment in a local growth company - Austin game tools company raises $6.1 million in venture capital
Of course, City Council still must vote on the requested incentives for eBay, and there is never a guarantee on the success of a start-up company (although this is a substantial 2nd-round investment). Nonetheless, each of these stories represents confidence in the economic and financial strength of Austin and our healthy supply of high-skill employees.
The future is bright in Austin, Texas.
