The “FW” in DFW is often overshadowed by the size of the D that is Dallas. But Downtown Fort Worth is perhaps one of the best downtown business and living centers in the country.

In case you haven't noticed, a lot of new people have moved into the DFW area in the past year or so. More than 100,000 people moved into the region between July 2012 and July 2013, according to the U.S. Census. In fact, the whole area has grown to a whopping 6.8 million residents since 2010, and that means a boom in the housing market that just keeps on booming.

In fact, Forbes magazine recently ranked the Dallas-Irving-Plano section of the Metroplex the 13th best place in America to do business and work, and recognized a 2.9 percent growth rate in new jobs here in 2012, the last time the numbers were calculated.

A new homebuilder has come to town in North Texas. Along with more homebuilding options for North Texans, MainVue Homes (Henly Properties), one of Australia’s biggest builders, is offering a modern aesthetic that is sure to turn some of the traditional designs we are used to seeing on their collective heads.
