LEANDER - As one of the nation's fastest-growing suburbs, the population of Leander grew from about 10,000 to almost 32,000 between 2000 and 2014. Assuming 3.5 people will live in each home, Leander has enough housing in the works to accommodate 50,000 more residents.
There are already 14,000 homes on Leander's drawing board that will create stark opportunities for commercial developers and retailers. City officials report having a difficult time keeping pace with all the activity.
Photos taken from a helicopter above the North Austin suburb underscore the scale of the housing boom Leander is experiencing.
