Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Employment Opportunities Changing in Richardson TX

Employment Opportunities Changing in Richardson TX

Richardson TX has been known as the Telecom Corridor since the 1980's.  This is because Richardson housed some of the major Telecom companies like Nortel, Ericcson, Fujitisu, AT&T, and many others.  Since Telecom took a downward spiral a few years ago, many of the Telecom companies left as well.  Many others downsized their office spaces.

Because of many buildings becoming vacant, Richardson decided to start recruiting other companies into their mix.  Fossil makes Richardson their home.  Countrywide took over much of Nortel's space.  It's a whole knew world as you go up 75 Central Expressway.
