One day I think Albuquerque will make the list. I think that because ABQ i a fast growing city with new buisinesses and nearly a 70,000 person population increase since 2000. ABQ just got light rail for the entire metropolitan area and a new highrise 30 stories tall planned for the city. ABQ started new innitiatives to make it clean and green and a beautification program to clean up the city. The current population of ABQ stands around 495,000 and the metro area around 800,000. just outside the city is a smaller city called Rio Rancho, one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Rio Rancho's population stands at 60,000 and by 2020 could be up to 150,000. Rio Rancho only has 30% of it's land developed.

ABQ itself could be as high as 850,000 by 2020 and 1.1 million by 2035. The metropolitan area will be way past 1 million by 2020 and 2 million by 2035. ABQ is cheaper, the traffic is not as bad, good climate, good economy, etc. A recipie for a future world city.

Your info is from 2006 - The Dallas area now has 24 Fortune 500 companies and Houston has 23.

Dallas area has 6.3 million in population while I believe Houston area is around 5 million.

Lakewooder, are you stating that Dallas gained 13 Fortune 500 HQ's in 1 year? I don't believe it. Please be so kingd as to provide the your 2007 list.


Regarding population, you are quoting metro. I'm referrnig to the actual cities. Houston's city population is 4th largest in the country

This is from your article:

"Dallas tops the list of DFW cities with 11 Fortune 500 headquarters."


That is less than Houston's 22.

Fortune 500 doesn't count metros only cities. The city of Houston has more than Dallas. However the Dallas metro has more than Houston. Both have a boatload and a lot to be proud of.
