Are you saying Albuquerque's metro rank with be 31 in 2050? Looking at the CBSA table, it is #60, the MSA table #59 currently. I don't see 31.

I hope your right about the development of the south side, personally though, I don't see it happening. I think we are more likely to see huge population increases in Kendal County/DeKalb/New Lenox area rather than abondoned factories on the far South Side. Just my prediction

It seems like most cities have just about stabilized their populations and are set to grow again, so it seems likely that people will start moving in again and target somewhat blighted and thus very cheap areas along or close to main transportation corridors--in which case, it looks like the South Side is headed for some gentrifying.

No doubt that some of the South Side is/will gentrify; but the OP predicted a population increase of 1 million people, which I think is next to impossible. While the near south side will continue to see people moving in, I highly doubt that areas like Hegewisch, Roseland, Pullman, Calumet will see huge population increases. Also keep in mind that the City is losing a large amount of Hispanics and African Americans to suburbs such as Aurora and Elgin.

"Houston is the perfect location for some, it offers suburban living in a major city." Can't we find suburban living in any American major city?

The Rio Rancho area is already listed as part of the Albuquerque MSA, just sprawled further from Albuquerque.

I think he meant the entire city feels suburban.
