Other than your core downtown area, what are the five (5) largest job centers/office parks in your metro area?

I currently live in Charlotte and other than Downtown/Uptown, I believe the top 5 areas to be:

1. Ballantyne
2. SouthEnd
3. Southpark Mall area
4. Ayrsley Town Center area
5. University area

What areas contain the most Class A office space and/or act as an alternative to working downtown in your metro?

University City is actually the second largest employment center in Charlotte with 75,000 employees.

This is anecdotal, I don't know the actual Stats.

For Atlanta metro, which has a lot of edge cities.

Midtown
Buckhead
Perimeter
Cumberland
Alpharetta

Good information. I never realized that University was a larger employment center than Ballantyne or Southpark.

Since the actual list of buildings/office parks are behind pay walls for Phoenix, I'm going to go by what I believe are the largest job centers (can't find a list for that either).

Not in order (also excluding Downtown):
A) I-10 corridor from South Tempe to Chandler
B) Midtown
C) Kierland / Scottsdale Airport
D) Biltmore
E) Marina Heights / DT Tempe

Almost all of these are in Phoenix, with the exception of Marina Heights in Tempe and the I-10 corridor (other Phoenicians, is there a name for this area? You know what I'm referring to). I included Marina Heights because I know the State Farm complex (Building B) in particular has the second highest office space of any individual building behind Chase Tower, and they also have a few other buildings around there to add on. The I-10 corridor, if we go about a mile east, includes the Chandler Intel plant which is pretty big. The area is mostly larger distribution centers, Honeywell, and some office space like Target.

Almost all of these are substitutes for Downtown, outside of the I-10 corridor due to the style of work (industrial vs. office).

You forgot downtown (the largest amount of office space amongst all submarkets).

The OP stated excluding downtown what areas have the largest amount of office space. I'm assuming downtown will have the most space in every metro area.

I live near Baton Rouge and a lot of the employment is indeed inside the city limits, though not necessarily "downtown".

LSU is technically not downtown and if of course a huge employer.

The petrochemical corridor along the Mississippi River has a LOT of plant jobs that employ many in this area, though Geismar has a particularly large number of manufacturing facilities. The giant ExxonMobil refinery is actually right next to downtown BR though.

My best guess for the San Diego region:
1. University City/Sorrento Valley/Miramar (more employment than downtown)
2. Kearny Mesa
3. Carlsbad-Vista Business Parks
4. Mission Valley
5. Camp Pendleton or another military concentration like NASSCO/Naval Base San Diego

The current light rail extension will serve #1, the next extension will serve #2, and #4 is already served.

I will guess for L.A. Metro area.

not in order.

1. Hollywood area (for tourism central, and music, TV, movie, stage jobs)
2. Westwood area (offices and UCLA and Medical campuses)
3. LAX-El Segundo(airport, cargo, aerospace, refineries)
4. Port of L.A. and Port of Long Beach (largest ports in America)
5. ???? this is though

LA metro has maybe a dozen or more big employment areas that are near equal.
1. Anaheim-Disneyland area
2. Koreatown-Wilshire Center
3. USC-Exposition Park
4. Downtown Glendale
5. Universal Studios Burbank Media City Studio City area (lots of Hollywood jobs not in Hollywood)
6. Century City-Beverly Hills
7. Silicon Beach (techie jobs)
8. Culver City (Sony Studios, Amazon Studios, HBO studios, and soon Facebook Studios (all except Netflix)
9. Warner Center Office Park
10. UC Irvine
11. Downtown Glendale
12. East Hollywood Tri-hospitals and LA City College
13. Lots of industrial zoned areas.
14. Santa Monica-Venice
15. Pasadena

Them: How many employment areas outside Downtown LA do you want?
LA Metro: YES
