Giddings 290 Business Park

Giddings 290 Business Park Now Under Development

Located at the intersection of Hwy 290 and Hwy 226

We are happy to announce that the Giddings Economic Development Corporation (GEDC) recently purchased the 165+ acre tract of property previously known as the Mittasch Estate, along with 3.4 acres of Union Pacific property fronting Highway  290.  Together these tracts comprise what is now the Giddings 290 Business Park, currently under development.

This purchase will strengthen the organization’s ties to the region’s industrial community and facilitate the creation of primary jobs by providing the City of Giddings with a platform to provide customized, build-ready sites, cost-effective land, financial incentives, and other assistance to companies seeking to expand or locate into the area.

The Giddings 290 Business Park is situated along the north side of Highway 290 with direct access to the Highway.  The park is within two miles of Highway 77.   Companies residing within this park will have access to City water, sewer and fire services, Bluebonnet Electric, Centerpoint Energy, and high speed internet.  

This property is wholly owned by the Giddings Economic Development Corporation.  The GEDC will work in partnership with the City of Giddings to fast-track permits, develop and approve incentive packages, and faciliate timely, effecient and cost-effective sale of land to the right company.  For information on financial incentives, including tax abatements, 380/281 agreements and workforce development assistance, contact the GEDC at 979.542.0267, edcdirector@giddings.net
