Testimonials

“Rowlett offers a great location with the President George Bush Turnpike, Interstate 30, and the DART Light Rail Station. We've also had great success with the Garland ISD providing quality candidates for open positions. We really enjoy the community and encourage any business that is looking to expand or relocate to consider Rowlett.”
— Drew Howard, Vice-President , H&S Manufacturing
“We were drawn to Downtown Rowlett due to its unique sense of authenticity and history. The opportunity to expand this sense of place guided our development approach and has resulted in the Village of Rowlett -- a mixed-use destination district that combines working, entertaining, living, shopping, and communing within a transit-oriented and pedestrian friendly place. With a diverse collection of buildings and streetscapes animated by various restaurants, small offices and housing, we believe it will become a key driver of Rowlett's unique identity. Without the support and encouragement of the City of Rowlett, this downtown Renaissance would not have happened.”
— Paris Rutherford, Principal , Catalyst Urban Development (Village of Rowlett)
“The City of Rowlett team from the outset of the Bayside Development has shown attentiveness and flexibility and their support has been critical to our success. It was an easy decision to select Rowlett for the $1 Billion Bayside Crystal Lagoon Project because of its close proximity to Downtown Dallas and Lake Ray Hubbard - the volume of interest in our development has been phenomenal. If you haven't heard of Rowlett you will soon! It has as much potential as any community in America.”
— Kent Donahue, President , Donahue Development Corp. (Bayside)
“The city has been helpful every step of the way in our business with looking for land for growth and helping us connect with high schools for job placement. Anytime I have a question they are there to help me navigate thru until we find the answer. The Rowlett team has been a blessing to Lime Media and its continued growth.”
