The High Ground of Texas

Big region. Bigger opportunity.

The size of our region is impressive - 67 counties stretching from the northern Panhandle into the Texas Plains. But it’s the scale of opportunity that is drawing residents and industry to the High Ground of Texas. Here, a vast abundance of low-cost sites and land sets the stage for a diverse array of vital industrial assets and innovation. And in a pro-business, low-tax state, the High Ground lowers costs even more, while spurring productivity and profitability with a solid work ethic and reduced regulations. Why be fenced in by expense, red tape or lack of skill or site choices? The Texas High Ground lets your enterprise go big.

Think bigger and faster for transit.
Access markets rapidly and cost-effectively in a central location comprehensively networked with fast-moving transit options: Multiple Interstate highways, U.S. routes and Class I rail lines, plus excellent international air connections, including a global spaceport.

Picture a bigger and better life.
Looking at the big picture of work and life, the view from the High Plains is impressive. From the magnificent splendor of the Palo Duro Canyon, the nation’s second largest canyon system, to the heights of educational achievement at Texas Tech, a Carnegie R-1 University; from the historic delights along the vintage Route 66 to the nationally acclaimed vintages of the state’s top viticulture region; from thrilling rodeos to vibrant urban amenities, the High Ground lets you “live large” with lower costs and higher quality.
