Land scarce as hen's teeth: population boomsLand scarce as hen's teeth: population boomshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=155612017-01-17T06:00:00Z2017-01-18T00:00:00Z

​​​​​SUGAR LAND, MISSOURI CITY – City officials say buildable land is nearly gone.​

Fort Bend County’s continued population boom has brought with it a demand for housing.

That has consumed nearly all buildable ground in Sugar Land, with land in Missouri City dwindling as well, according to real estate professionals and city officials.

With its town square shopping hub and tree-lined boulevards, Sugar Land has become a much sought-after address in Houston’s southwest suburbs. 

Sugar Land's median home price already tops $425,000.​

The population of Fort Bend County was about 579,000 in 2010 and is expected to reach 1.06 million by 2030, according to the Houston-Galveston Area Council.

Three major Sugar Land housing developments—Riverstone, Imperial and Sienna Plantation—added to the housing stock in recent years but are nearly complete.

Once they are fully inhabited, the population is expected to basically stabilize, said Sugar Land Planning Director Lisa Kocich-Meyer.

Real estate agent Cathy Stubbs​ said people who are priced out of Sugar Land or Missouri City will move further south along Hwy. 59 into Richmond and Rosenberg.
