The Future of Allen: The 121 Corridor

The Future of Allen

The 121 Corridor

It’s no secret Allen is growing.

But what is one of the best kept secrets is that Allen has been steadily putting in place the amenities that will attract the relocation of the next Fortune 1000 headquarters. With over $500 million in projects finishing in 2018, Allen is moving into the next stage of its evolution.

This page provides resources to learn about the exciting developments already underway and those coming up on the horizon.

“Everyone always says they have a unique feeling when they come to Allen. That unique feeling is because we don’t always jump for the first thing: we work with developers to make a great project and make a great value for the citizens of Allen at the same time.”

Honorable Steve Terrell
City of Allen
