In the middle is the most promising place for new home construction.
There is a large swath of land, some 3.4 million acres, in Texas that has been given over to development.
It’s called the North Star, an area that includes the Rio Grande Valley and the Rio Piedras, the largest metropolitan area in the United States.
It includes most of the city of San Antonio and is a prime real estate destination for prospective homebuyers.
But it’s not a destination for everyone.
The area has a high rate of foreclosures and low home values, according to a 2017 report from the Texas Association of Realtors.
The median price of a home in North Star land is $1.8 million, according a study from the University of Texas at Austin.
The average home value is $3.1 million.
And it’s also home to a large proportion of the population in poverty.
The poverty rate in North Texas is 24.3%, compared with 16.7% in the Texas-Mexico border state of Tamaulipas.
“North Star is really a very vulnerable place,” said Richard Lardner, the director of the Texas Real Estate Institute at the University to address poverty in North America.
The area has been a hotbed of economic growth in the past 20 years, spurred by the growth of a booming Texas energy industry.
But there’s been a backlash among some residents of North Star who say the area is becoming increasingly isolated.
In 2016, the Texas Legislature passed a law that prohibited development in the Northstar, which includes the city and surrounding counties.
The law also created an economic development task force that includes a special prosecutor, the NorthStar Chamber of Commerce and the North Texas Property Owners Association.
The new state law doesn’t address the issues of density, size and proximity to other cities and towns.
But it does prohibit the use of eminent domain, a legal tactic to take land for development.
The NorthStar has been targeted by developers who are trying to build in what’s known as “stranded development,” which allows a developer to hold onto the land they’ve built but then move to a more profitable location.
The state’s new law prohibits developers from acquiring land for new development unless the developer is willing to sell their land at least 15 years before the new development is built.
Some have already been granted permission to build, including the Texas Realty Association, which is developing an office building in North Stars downtown.
The task force also is considering a plan that would allow developers to use eminent domain to force other people to buy up their land.
The group’s vice president of real estate, Bill White, said that’s not acceptable.
“There’s a real question of how this [law] is going to play out in the community,” he said.
“People are not getting what they want in Northstar.”
White said that even if the plan is approved, he doesn’t think it will help people.
He said North Star is the epitome of “just another strip mall.”
“People who live there are just getting caught in a Catch-22.
It seems like we have no choice but to live in NorthStar,” he added.
The city is also considering creating a citywide homeless shelter.
But that’s another story.
