Highland Village

Wikipedia says:

In the ten-year period from fiscal year 2002 to fiscal year 2012, the Highland Village City Council negotiated and implemented commercial development projects that resulted in sales tax revenues booming from $430,758 in 2002 to $2,076,510 in 2012 (a 482% growth). The number is expected to take another significant jump when Whole Foods Market opens its doors in late 2014 and creates a new draw for miles around.
