I'm going out on a limb here...Richmond, Virginia.

The OP was asking for the next big thing and not one that was there yet. Richmond will continue to benefit from it's favorable location as midpoint on the east coast, lower taxes and cost of living, as well as it's status as state capitol of Virginia and the presence of two major universities that are growing quickly (Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond).

It also continues to have one of the lowest unemployment rates of the major metro areas (7.7%). There are 9 Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Richmond and many others with sizable presences. Amtrak is purportedly planning to extend it's Northeast Corridor service south to Richmond, which will link it to the DC/Philly/NYC/Boston corridor. That will be huge for business development.
