Word is Enterprise's parent company (Enterprise, Alamo, National Rental Car) South Central regional HQ will be relocated to the metro area. It will be located in northern Shelby County, but its pretty substantial number of jobs. The number of jobs being transferred to Birmingham are estimated to about 1,000 including training, management, and support operations. Another interesting development on the well paying jobs being brought to the region.

Well well well, that would be a very big deal if it comes to fruition. North Shelby is already very busy and adding this many well paying jobs would be a big boost for the metro and city, might even net some population growth to the area too. This is the first I'm hearing of this but I'll certainly be keeping my eyes open for this.

Also heard this was close to being a done deal....over 600 jobs. This also from the jefferson county commission

https://www.bizjournals.com/birmingh...prominent.html

Excerpt:

"City officials told the Birmingham Business Journal they are making a bid for the headquarters of two U.S. Department of Agriculture entities – the Economic Research Service and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture. NIFA would need approximately 90,000 square feet for 360 employees, while ERS would need up to 70,000 square feet for 260 employees, according to information from a public document.

The site being pitched for the project is the Liberty Towers at Midtown, which was formerly known as the Liberty National Building.

The USDA issued an RFP for the project earlier this year, and the city of Birmingham is working with a number of partner entities – including all of the state's land-grant universities – in pursuit of the project. Alabama's land grant universities are Auburn University, Alabama A&M University and Tuskegee University. Other entities working on the project include the Economic Development Association of Alabama, Alabama Power Co. and Jefferson County."

Haven't heard about this but it will be a big deal if it comes to fruition, I wonder what location/locations are being looked at.

I love seeing this, agriculture institutions from this state are known nationwide as some of the best if not the best and to bring 2 US dept of Agriculture entities to the city and establish a presence here in this state is a big deal. I hope that they do something with the Liberty bldg as well, that would be a good look.

There’s already a 6:00am and 4:28pm BHM-LGA flight now. Is this a 3rd? I grabbed a random date in January and still only saw two on DL.

Nevermind, I found it. There’s a mid morning addition at 10:45am starting the last week in Jan. Not a mid day addition.

DL will have three regional jet flights to LGA. It’s a bummer that LGA is such a crappy connecting airport. I’ll take what I can get though.

The Enterprise deal being 1,000 jobs would be a major win. Wonder why there hasn't been more press about it if that big? The building they're leasing is only 39k sq ft so there's not way 1,000 people could fit in there but maybe that's more of a long range plan.

Either way, getting them to establish new corporate operations in Bham is good.

And on the government HQs, if that's a done deal that's huge for Birmingham and especially downtown. Adding over 600 more jobs and rehabing a long vacant prominent building on the skyline. That would do wonders for continuing to build density in the midtown area.

Their website says that the South-Central region HQ is already in Birmingham (Vestavia). Is this an actual gain of jobs or yet another relocating of a HQ from one part of the metro to another? What am I missing?
