Charlotte Was Just Named The #2 Metro In America For Economic Growth Potential
Business Facilities’ 13th Annual Rankings Report was just released yesterday and Charlotte was named the #2 metro in the country for Economic Growth Potential (cities with 300,000+ residents).
The announcement is significant economic development accolade for a city that’s desperately seeking to diversify its banking reliance. The ranking put a heavy focus on the tech industry, especially tech start-ups, tech manufacturing, and data-center growth.
Charlotte’s #2 spot was largely based on Apple’s new $5 billion data center, Amazon’s new $375 million data-center wind farm, our city and state’s tax incentives for the tech industry, our infrastructure growth, and the abundant amount of raw land we still have available.
