Boeing's new factories are in Charleston, not Charlotte.

I agree, there's a difference between explosion of growth (as in first time around) versus infill to a Rust Belt city that lost tens of thousands of residents. In my opinion cities like Louisville or Richmond best fulfill the intent of the thread as they've never really been considered "hot" in the first place.

I tend to agree with this. Pittsburgh has done a remarkable job in managing its turnaround, but due to its unique topography, which creates numerous distinct neighborhoods that don't bleed into each other as much as in other cities, it will remain "cool", "hip" and whatever, but will experience managed growth, not a big boom, as the growth simply can't happen quickly in a single neighborhood, like say, Williamsburg in Brooklyn or Silverlake in LA. And some areas (e.g. Southside Slopes, lower Lawrenceville) are already hard to get into affordably.
