Location of Sugar Land, Texas

Sugar Land is a city located in Fort Bend County, Texas. As of the 2000 census, the Houston suburb had a total population of 63,328. The population in 2004 according to the city is 69,599. The city is the fastest growing municipality in Texas in terms of population.

Sugar Land is home to the headquarters for the Imperial Sugar company as the company's main refinery was once located in this city. It has since been put out of operation, but its effect on the local economy was extremely minimal, if at all, since Sugar Land today has much more of a reputation as an extremely affluent Houston suburb than the blue-collar agriculture-dependent town it once was a generation ago. Throughout much of the nineties it was considered one of the fastest-growing communities in the nation and the majority of Sugar Landers are white-collar, and college-educated working in Houston's renowned energy industry. An abundance of commercial growth, with numerous low-rise office buildings, banks and high-class restaurants popping up, can be seen along both US 59 and Texas Hwy 6, the two main traffic arteries in the city. The city expects the ultimate population to eventually exceed 200,000, which will make it largest Houston suburb, surpassing Pasadena, Texas.

A portion of the 1974 movie Sugarland Express takes place in Sugar Land. The movie's title spells the name of the city incorrectly, and it was among Steven Speilberg's first films, before he became nationally known.

As Sugar Land is widely considered one of the wealthiest suburbs in the state, many celebrities live in and around Sugar Land, including Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski. Still more celebrities simply keep houses in the upscale, but quaintly suburban Sweetwater subdivision, such as Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley, and other local luminaries. It is also the hometown and area represented by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. Because of this, Sugar Land is widely considered to be an extremely Republican area.

Sugar Land is also notable for its affluent minority population, since it is also a popular place of residence among Houston's increasingly influential Asian community. According to the latest US census statistics, nearly a quarter of its residents are Asian-American. The majority of Sugar Land's Asian community consists of successful Indian, Pakistani, and Chinese-Americans owning businesses or working in nearby Houston. Sugar Land could quite possibly have the largest and most affluent Asian community in Texas, and outside of California, the largest in the nation.

Missouri City, located to the east, is Sugar Land's sister city.
