​​DALLAS – Dallas-Fort Worth climbed to number ten on CBRE’s annual Tech-Thirty list, which analyzes the 30 leading technology markets in the U.S. and Canada in terms of high-tech software/services job growth.

Up from number 17, the Metroplex saw its high-tech jobs grow 19.7 percent from 2013 to 2015, up from 10.8 percent from 2012 to 2014, making it one of the top three momentum markets for high-tech jobs in the country.

Average office rents in North Texas' top tech submarket, Far North Dallas, rose 17.6 percent to $24.67. That compares with a 16.6 percent growth rate in the overall market from Q2 2014 and Q2 2016.​ The area ranked seventh in office market rent growth.

“This report is further evidence that DFW has become a major tech market to be recko​ned with,” said Jeff Eiting, vice president and co-leader of the Technology and Media Practice group in CBRE’s Dallas office. “With more than 90,000 high-tech jobs, our tech workforce is twice the size of Austin’s and growing. Tech companies will continue to be attracted to the large, well-educated labor pool that DFW offers, as well as our relatively low cost of living and cost of office space.”
