Looking for apartments in apartments in Hurst, TX?
The top five employers in Hurst, Texas, are Bell Helicopter, Wal-Mart Supercenter, Tarrant County College, Dillard's, the City of Hurst, and Macy's. Obviously, with three of the five being stores, retail is important to the city. North East Mall has been one of the major economic drivers since the 1970s. One of the county's five TCC campuses is just two miles north of I-820. For the current population of Hurst, nearly 40,000, the average household income of $75,000 is higher than cities of comparable size.
For fun, the city offers two large outdoor aquatic centers, the Central and Chisholm locations. For a city of barely 10 square miles, there are 22 parks to choose from. The recently completed Hurst Conference Center will be the heart of a new development called The Hurst Town Center, a mixed-use urban center where residents can live, work, dine and shop. Other developments will include Heritage Village, a 30,000 square foot senior center living community; and the Bel Air Arts District, an aging retail center being transformed into an arts and theater district.
Just 20 minutes away from DFW International Airport lines the city of Hurst, along Airport Freeway, one of the busiest east-west transit corridors in the metroplex. In fact, Airport Freeway is sometimes several highways at once: 183, 121, and even I-820, which sometimes explains the maddening pace of traffic as commuters rush from one side of the metroplex to the other. The cities in between are sometimes a blur.
So much so that Hurst is sometimes referred to collectively as Hurst-Euless-Bedford (HEB), a tri-city cooperative just 18 minutes from downtown Fort Worth and just 23 minutes from Dallas (depending on traffic, of course). Many local residents work at nearby American Airlines or at the airport.
The HEB Independent School District, named in the top 10 percent of school systems nationwide, serves most of the city's school-aged citizens. But portions of the city are also serviced by Birdville ISD, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD, and Keller ISD.
