Coppell is a primarily residential community between Dallas and Fort Worth, just north of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Spurred by the opening of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW Airport) in 1974, the city was radically transformed from a tiny farming village to a large, upper-middle class suburban community in the 1980s and 1990s. By 2000, almost all of the residentially zoned land in the city was developed, and the population grew to over 35,000. In addition to suburban homes, the city has a growing commercial base of warehouses and transportation centers on the south and west sides of the city, closest in proximity to the airport.
Many Coppell homes are large brick residences, and many border creeks and lakes in new developments. The town, with approximately 40,000 residents, is situated next to the northeast corner of D/FW Airport, a major factor in recent growth.
No freeways run directly through Coppell, but the entire perimeter is served by State Highway 12, the Sam Rayburn Tollway, Interstate 635, President George Bush Turnpike and Interstate 35E.
