The area also encompasses the Dallas suburbs of Farmers Branch, Carrollton and Plano and is home to affluent residential neighborhoods, hundreds of multi-million-dollar companies, scores of quality restaurants and upscale shopping. The Town of Addison encompasses 4.4 square miles of territory with a current estimated residential population of 15,830.
