Wait, I'm confused. Last decade the Twin Cities barely grew over 10%, which is about as slow as the region has grown in a century. Yet you expect Minneapolis to be a new "go-to" place this decade (presuming faster growth)? This doesn't make sense if you don't see the metro growing as "fast" as it did last decade (a shade over 10% from 2000-2010).

Prineville Oregon has just been discovered by the biggest computer companies.

Any town close to where more natural gas has been discovered.

Nashville seems to be booming - also its upscale suburb of Franklin - actually a distinct small town with a quaint downtown but also massive new developments.

Hmm. Maybe my remembered growth percentages were off, along with my general line of thought. I'm nursing a pretty wicked hangover so maybe I'll just bow out of this one.

The only city I see in the South as a true "sleeping giant" would be Austin. I think Dallas and Houston have made names for themselves, and hopefully can invest a lot more where it is needed. Nashville certainly has a chance, but not quite like Austin.

Elsewhere: Denver, Salt Lake City (if it could tone down on its conservatism), and Baltimore.

Are some of these cities "sleeping giants" though?

Pittsburgh is going to get a bit larger in the near future. It could be the next Portland

Seattle will be part of the US elites (NY, Chi, LA, DC, San Fran) in the next few decades.

I wouldn't expect many cities to grow at a rate where it is on par with New York, Los Angeles and Chicago in terms of the country all time cities and international status. However there are many cities that compete with the major three like Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, and Washington D.C


Eu nao olhar por muito cidades par grande alto como New York, Los Angeles, e Chicago. Porque es muito cidades que ter muito tambem tres: Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, e Washington D.C
