I don't really see Asheville changing all that much; they seem pretty content with remaining an Appalachian boutique city and don't really have big city ambitions. Charleston is already in the process of becoming a more contemporary urbane, metropolitan city with its strong population and economic growth. Savannah will likely start seeing more of that type of change with its port expansion.

There is a faction that would like to see Asheville grow, but they have some of the most rabid NIMBY's in the U.S. there.

Huntsville, Alabama is a great little city I'd like to see it grow more in the future for sure.

Raleigh/Durham has all the right pieces that are just now being realized, but they must plan ahead.

New Orleans has a chance to become even better than what it was. Its growing and changing but still has that unique New Orleans feel and way. With South Market District, the new huge University Medical Center, and redevelopment of the World Trade Center its a good time to be down.. Oh and the development of the convention center district will be amazing if it happens.

South Market District

ILH Interim LSU Hospital | A respected teaching hospital, staffed by LSU and Tulane faculty.

The Rust Belt sucks, the reason the Sunbelt is getting all the transplants is because its more business friendly and the unions and *******s don't kill the culture like in Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo and such

Several years ago, my Supply-Chain professor told our class to really watch the Northwest Arkansas area for growth. I've never been there, but Walmart's headquarters are up there, and they require their vendors to locate nearby. On these boards, I've heard several Austinites compare it to Austin before the growth.

I believe the whole Sunbelt is going to transform. I believe many of the cities are going to densify in coming years, with growth still occurring in suburban areas as well.

Yet, in the same report, Raleigh grew at a faster rate.
Both cities and metros are growing crazy fast.
