💥 Tick, Tick, Boom! Relo Explosion & Robot Food 🥗

The Oldham Group brings you Austin news, exciting events, homes for sales and uniquely fun things happening around greater Austin. Feel free to contact us at anytime to be added to our distribution list.

I borrowed the title Tick, Tick…Boom! from Lin Manual Miranda. It’s his new biographical musical (Watch Trailer), but it’s also an accurate description of the massive influx of corporate relocation to Austin and it’s suburbs. 

In real estate, we watch these relocations like a hawk as they are the precursor to job creation which is followed by individual relocations…that’s where I come in! More people means more housing starts, more retail services, and so on. 

Opportunity Austin a special task force within the Austin Chamber educates companies and incentivizes these big business moves. This has been a banner year from military defense and fintech companies to logistics and financial services. Here’s the full list of 2021 Corporate Relocations. 

We can’t talk about big corporate moves without mentioning the MEGA lease signed by META this month. Here are the details about their massive commitment to Austin. ABJ Article  

Of course Tesla has grabbed headlines all year with the Giga Factory, Boring Co. and now official corporate headquarter relocation. Statesman Article

As a former blue-corduroy jacket wearing FFA member, there is nothing that gives me more pleasure than writing about the future of agriculture. I’m excited to report that the future is NOW and it’s in LOCKHART, TX. The California based food company Iron Ox just broke ground on its latest AI-enabled hydroponic greenhouse. The 535,000 square foot facility is state of the art providing plants the exact conditions they need for efficient growth – the right temperature, light, minerals and water. Here’s where the robots come in…they take on the laborious tasks and help to create a sustainable agricultural process. Want to know more about these Texas AI-grown foods, here’s a great read!

The Five Bullet format is inspired by Tim Ferriss…let’s give it some Austin Style!

I first tried Dutch Bros when they opened in College Station, TX last year.
