Nashville isn’t as urbanized as DC. Was that your point?

The post above which said the Midwest will boom in part because of racists had an interesting take.

Keep in mind, this is over a 21 year span. In no particular order:

Fastest growing: NC, SC, GA, FL, TX, AZ, UT

Growing nicely now, but growth rates will increase: TN, VA, AR (especially in the north), MN, NE, ID, MT

Present growth will slow, mainly due to costs of living becoming more unaffordable than they already are: CA, OR, WA, CO, MA

^^I know this is a weird website, but the information appears to be correct.
https://www.lawnstarter.com/denver-c...r-greeley-2025
"Separately, the populations of the Denver, Boulder and Greeley metro areas in Colorado are on the rise. But collectively, the three adjoining metro areas are a true population powerhouse.

On the heels of already rapid growth, the Denver-Boulder-Greeley region is expected to experience an 18.9 percent spike in population from 2015 to 2025, according to a LawnStarter analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau and projections from the Colorado State Demography Office. Sometime in 2025, the region is forecast to surpass the 4 million-resident threshold, up from a little over 3.4 million in 2015, the analysis shows."

Not necessarily in WA, OR, CO. The predicted growth remains strong in all three. CA is still growing but slowing.

WA OR CO probably won’t slow that much. MA and CA yes for sure, especially MA.

I doubt the growth will slow that much, especially when RER comes.

Right now in MA, they have the most residential units through the pipeline, than they ever had. Mostly in the cities of Boston,Somerville, Cambridge, Framingham, Quincy, Weymouth and Lynn. But still something to note.

It's neither growing as fast as the urban boom towns NOR as the Sunbelt cities closer to it in size.

So we have neither impressive densification nor large-scale sprawl at play within Davidson County.

Nashville's growth is pitiful by all definitions.

Austin
Orlando

Houston
San Antonio

Accurate. But if we narrow it down to the top 20 msa's, the growth list looks like this:

1. Houston*
2. Dallas
3. Phoenix
4. Denver
5. Seattle
6. Atlanta
7. Miami
8. Tampa
9. Wash DC
10. Riverside/San Bernardino

* "Last year’s growth, however, was the weakest in 20 years. It came on the heels of tepid growth the year before. The region saw fewer births last year, an uptick in deaths, and a significant number of residents leaving Houston. If not for a surge in international migration, Houston’s population growth would have been weaker still." Source: Houston.org/news

I think what you're missing about Nashville by focusing too much on the city limit growth percentages rather than the metro numbers is that many low income or working class within the city limits are now feeling forced to move to surrounding counties as rent and home prices rapidly increase within the city. Many middle and upper income people also move to surrounding counties as they have children and the city increasingly become more geared towards young professionals and DINKs.

So, while the actual city growth numbers are not high, the metro area growth percentages remain near the top in the nation and the construction in the urban core and surrounding areas is incredible for a metro of approximately 2 million. Around 40 cranes currently dot Nashville's skyline. It is readily apparent to anyone that has recently spent time in Nashville that it is indeed an urban boom town regardless of what the numbers say.

The core and inner ring residential neighborhoods are densifying quite rapidly. The city growth percentages would reflect that as well if the old city limits remained and it wasn't one of the cities that consolidated with the county in the 20th century. About a third of Davidson County is too hilly and rugged to be suitable for much development at all.
