Once again, Site Selection Magazine ranked Cincinnati among the nation's top five metros of over 1-million in the number of construction projects. In the Midwest, Cincinnati ranked second, only behind Chicago and well ahead of other peer cities; nationally, Cincinnati ranked fourth, only behind Chicago, Houston, and Dallas:

A year ago, the prestigious business publication ranked Cincinnati in similar fashion:

Shocked to see Dayton on that list. I think this simply reinforces the belief that the Cincinnati-Middletown-Dayton corridor is becoming a CMSA. Wish the list provided an actual break down of each specific project at least by industry. Would give an indication which industries will provide new jobs and potential for future growth.

As for myself, I was delighted to see Dayton so highly ranked in metros with 200,000 to !-million. As you said, this type of surprising news only reaffirms the reality of CIN-DAY. When the region will be officially designated as a CSA can't be too far away.

Cincinnati has long been "District City" or "Regional Center" for a lot of stuff in Dayton.

For the third year in a row, the prestigious business publication Site Selection Magazine
ranked Cincinnati among the top five metros of over 1-million in construction projects.

Along with an outstanding photograph of downtown, the Business Journal offered a brief assessment of the importance of such recognition...
"The only cities that boasted more projects than Cincinnati
were Chicago, Dallas, Houston and New York City..."

It really surprises me that Cincinnati is rank that high on the list. I guess Cincy is really developing economically which is great. When I travel to Nash, DC, Boston or Raleigh then I see nothing but Cranes in the air. Not so much in Cincy but what do I know.

Naah - I don't think one thing has anything to do with the other. Dayton has always had a reasonable amount of tech by virtue of the Air Force base and its ties to aviation. And then there's Lexis-Nexis. I think that is a bigger driver than anything else.

I don't think people looking at where to expand are saying, "Yeah, that Dayton is a really hot town now that it's part of a CMSA! We have to jump in on it!" If that were the case, Cleveland would still be the Number 12 DMA.

I think the list is for construction projects related to the industry and business sectors as opposed to construction projects related to the residential sector as you would see in Nashville , Boston, DC, or Raleigh due to those metros need for housing for its population increase. In those cities residential construction projects is going be concentrated in in residential areas. Business construction projects tend to be more out of sight and spread out around the metro in areas zoned for industry. Also with business projects there might not be a significant population increase due to the mechanization of manufacturing and industry in which automation and robotics are displacing the need for workers.

That makes sense.

Cincy Biz Journal launched a crane watch recently. Fun way to keep track:
