Cedar Hill: Where Business + Fun Grow Naturally

Located at the highest elevation in Dallas County and just 20 minutes from city center sits the beautiful, family-friendly city of Cedar Hill, where opportunities grow naturally. A bustling and diverse community of just over 45,000 people, Cedar Hill combines the best of big-city living with natural beauty and outdoor recreation found nowhere else in the Metroplex.

Culturally, economically, and geographically, Cedar Hill’s appeal is broad and palpable.

“Our prime location within the metro area is a key strength, with easy access to major highways, airports, and the inland port,” says Cedar Hill Mayor Stephen Mason. “It provides companies a competitive advantage with regards to logistics, as well as various transit options for locals and visitors.”

With its low cost of doing business, ample workforce, and attractive quality of life, Cedar Hill is experiencing an influx of both startups and established companies.

Recent announcements include a public-private partnership on an Aloft Hotel and city convention center at Hillside Village lifestyle center, exciting plans for Historic Downtown with Lake Moreno Partners bringing adaptive reuse expertise to a 40,000 SF mix-used development of retail, restaurants, and more, professional office additions across the city, housing options among single-family and multi-family living, and the thriving retailer sector capturing regional market.

Business owners operating in the city take pride being part of Cedar Hill’s growth, connecting with its principles in stewardship of the environment.

Local business owner Abdiel Ruiz and wife Rosemary of Ruiz Financial Solutions share, “the best part of working in Cedar Hill is the people and daily interactions we are able to have. My wife and I have a long-term investment in the growth of our city and the relationships we have with the people of Cedar Hill. That is why we live, work, and worship in this wonderful city.”

In addition to the growing business climate, Cedar Hill corners the market on natural beauty. Its uniquely diverse geological area with abundant wildlife offers some of the most breathtaking views in North Texas. The scenic rolling hills are reminiscent of the Texas Hill Country, yet conveniently nearby, making it the preferred destination among nature enthusiasts, hikers, cyclists, mountain bikers, boaters, campers, and adventure-seekers alike.

Whether it’s a visit to Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center, where the ecosystems of east, west, and central Texas converge, containing the widest variety of rare species in North Texas, or the Cedar Hill State Park, nearly 2,000-acres, located on Joe Pool Lake, Cedar Hill is an ideal location for learning about environmental science and nature. Add this to an extensive city park system, and outdoor recreational experiences that exist at every turn.

“Cedar Hill has an entrepreneurial spirit like nowhere else in the region,” shares Shadi Awad, co-founder of Technagy. “That spirit combined with its natural beauty made it the perfect spot to launch our company. I really believe the eyes of the Metroplex will be on this city over the next ten years like never before.”
