The Alliance area is booming like crazy, thanks to the bustling Alliance Airport and big-time developments like the Facebook data center at 4500 Like Way. The Alliance Town Center has also played a role in this area’s rising profile, offering just a little of everything. The 900-acre, mixed-use center, developed by Hillwood Properties and Trademark Property Company, has more than 40 retail shops and a nearly equal number of restaurants, along with luxury townhomes and apartments like Monterra Village.

On the single-family home front, houses average 2,679 square feet, with an average list price of $274,142, according to Keller Williams-Arlington Realtor Jordan Davis. Some of Alliance’s newest houses, just built by M/I Homes in the Creekwood neighborhood near Saginaw, run around $240,000, says Hillwood property manager Kim Comiskey. Homes near Alliance Town Center are in the mid-$300,000 range. But Alliance isn’t all development – if you’d like to get away from civilization, there are plenty of hiking trails, parks and playgrounds. Not to mention an abundance of community pools and swim clubs in several neighborhoods.
