Honeywell is a $40 billion company in sales, so that's a big deal.

Looking into it, the HQ will total about 750 people and be temporarily located Downtown (or that PR name they use for it locally), but will also consider suburban locations...Ballantyn (looks extremely sprawly) and SouthPark (suburban but some urbanism aspects).

Lots of opportunities there, and a more laid-back lifestyle.

And yeah, the "click bait" is horrendous.
Anything north of VA that is. Lots of new business are heading to the Carolinas and Georgia due to lots of sprawl and cheaper land compared to the Northeast.

Throughout US history, most Easterners flee to the West. Most Northeasterners are fleeing South, but recently most Northeasterners are not going deeply south to Florida, they are moving to places like the Carolinas. The generations are changing when it comes to retirement. Most people my parent's age are retiring from the East to places out West like Las Vegas and most do not retire to Florida as the Boomers did. They are moving to the Carolinas and not as deeply south. The Northeastern Boomers move to Florida or Arizona (out West).
That's pretty true. There's a reason why Flordia is often stereotyped as being for old people when there are actually lots of people in there 30s and 40s that move to Flordia. Most people I know from Flordia are under 50. As far as the west goes it's ironic how California went from being the state everyone wanted to move to now being a state everyone is leaving. For West Coasters it's moving back east (southwest and Rockies) while Northeasterners and Midwesterners to some extent are going down south).

I doubt that companies are moving to the Carolinas and Georgia because of sprawl. Maybe lower cost of land, materials, and possibly labor, but "sprawl" is not the reason they're moving to those states. Oh and while we're at it, many companies are also moving to Tennessee as well, in that region. All those states are sort of booming right now and I think that's great for their economies.

It is because most of the cites south of the mason-dixon line are newer and more sprawl so lots of businesses from the northeast come to VA, NC, SC, GA and FL come and open up their shops down south. Florida has a wawa which is a Mid-Atlantic gas station, GA has a golden crust which is a NYC area chain, and there's a ton of NY pizza spots throughout the South-Alantic.

Newness and sprawl have nothing to do with business expansion of companies from the Northeast. It's due to population growth and opportunity to advance the business. Furthermore growth and sprawl aren't intertwined all across the Southeast, as many progressive municipalities via the observance of what has happened elsewhere have instituted planning/zoning measures to prevent the same mistakes.

Why not Nevada? No state income tax.
