Charlotte is One of the Next Big Boom Towns

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 13, 2011
Are you trying to find a great place to retire? The perfect city to move to now that you’re a college graduate? Or a city in which to get a new start during mid-life? Here’s one idea: Charlotte, NC.

What cities are best positioned to grow and prosper in the coming decade? Forbes and the Praxis Strategy Group did a study to determine the The Next Big Boom Towns In The U.S. and found Charlotte number 8.

They started with job growth, not only looking at performance over the past decade but also focusing on growth in the past two years. That was one-third of the score.  The other two-thirds were made up of demographic factors, all weighted equally. These included rates of family formation, growth in educated migration, population growth and, finally, a broad measurement of attractiveness to immigrants — as places to settle, make money and start businesses.
They focused on these demographic factors because college-educated migrants (who also tend to be under 30), new families and immigrants will be critical in shaping the future. 

Two advantages this rising Southern city, No. 8 Charlotte, N.C., possesses is a mild climate and smaller scale. Even with population growth, it does not suffer the persistent transportation bottlenecks that strangle the older growth hubs. At the same time, this city is building the infrastructure — roads, cultural institutions and airports — critical to future growth. Charlotte’s bustling airport may never be as big as Atlanta’s, but it serves both major national and international routes.

So if you are looking for a fresh start, look for an apartment in Charlotte, NC.
