Wilshire Gardens Counted as Top Contributor to Burleson's Business Boom
Burleson's boom is not only in the residential sector. From Old Town, to the Interstate 35W corridor, to the John Jones area and places in between, Burleson experienced significant business growth during 2015, stabilizing a strong commercial tax base.
The first significant development was the February completion and grand opening of Family Toyota in a 53,565-square-foot, multimillion dollar dealership.
Later in February, Orr & Associates Real Estate, a 40-plus-year-old Burleson real estate firm, moved from Texas 174 to space in the NorthStar Bank building near City Hall.
“We are excited to be moving to Old Town Burleson,” said Rob Orr, who has operated the firm with his wife, Pam, since 1987. “As a long time real estate broker, Orr & Associates Real Estate is proud to bring our company to the center of our growing community."
On the heels of the opening of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins came Schlotzsky's, co-branded with a Cinnabon bakery, at 705 S.W. Wilshire Boulevard.
