Or maybe there just aren't people participating in this thread that have experience with Austin or want to discuss it? If there are Austin comments out there, bring 'em on!

Basically, the Southeast and Southern Plains will see the most growth along with select parts of the Northwest and energy patch regions.

Probably because you can buy a house cheap. There were some other cities on that list that I thought the same about. Riverside CA for one.

The fact is no one can predict the future. I doubt many forsaw Phoenix, San Antonio or San Jose being one of the ten largest cities in the US 30-40 years ago. I'm sure techonology centers will continue to boom, but where they may be, and where future economic sectors will grow, can't readily be predicted.

Austin has been mention many of times and has seen significant growth over the years, time to let other cities have that moment in the sun. Austin will no doubt continue to grow as it's already booming once again.

If it was human scaled in its overall development it would be appealing to me. Way too crowded and congested compared to what I find desirable. I like a nice mixture of city, town, and country within a 5 mile radius of where I live.
